Keramat's malay eatery

WARNING : Another food entry.....
Many moons ago, my best friend's friend brought us to a busy malay food eatery along Jalan Jelatek (opposite Jelatek LRT station), Restoran Salim.

Had to send my daughter to school two days ago as my friend who usually ferries her to school had her son hospitalised. Thinking hard after sending my daughter of places to eat and Restoran Salim came to mind. I would say that this is one of the finest malay food eatery around Keramat area and entering it is akin to stepping in to your own mom's kitchen - the aroma is just divine. The variety of spread is an attraction indeed and they use fresh ingredients - tiger prawns, crabs, chicken, beef, fish roe etc etc....

This eatery has been here since god knows when, apparently! To be able to survive that long means something aint it?

Restoran Salim is located opposite Jelatek LRT station and housed along a mini post office within a four storey walk up City Hall flats.

think I know where the place is.. but I just can't stand the traffic to get to that area.. Maybe LRT would be the best bet.

The restaurant looks so dilapidated! And there was a chink in your plate! He he he..

Intan said...

well, that eatery looks just like the restoran penang eatery in subang jaya, but it has since moved to i don't know where. the food there was also great and because it looked run-down it was also very very affordable! hahaha!

jauhnya keramat,takleh nak try. Read about your previous entry "Living life to the fullest". Wow!! Szee Mee doesn't look like in her mid 60s. Wish I were in the best of health at her age,insyaallah.. So,don't u think that what we eat reflects our health too? like 'we are what we eat'??? jeng..jeng..jeng...

Halwafy - Uh huh....!

Intan - Some times the most run down places serve the best food....

Wan - I ahve seen the one in Pasar Keramat. But Restoran Salim tu not really minang.

Qisst - Yah...Sze Mee tu fit giler....!

DOF: If you pass by Sri Gombak, do drop by at my place and tell me what you think of the food!

Dad of Four said...

HM FS - Insya Allah. If I'm not mistaken, your place has been recommended by a blogger earlier (tak ingat) for your Ikan Patin masak lemak.
