Kandahar Street - Rumah Makan Minang

When one craves spicy Sumatran cuisine, they head to the nasi padang belt of Kandahar Street. Nasi padang is a dish where customers literally customize what they want to eat. Today, I went to Rumah Makan Minang at the corner of Kandahar Street and Muscat Street.
Stepping into the restaurant is an eye opener as just behind a glass counter is an array of more than 20 dishes to pick from and we were drooling in the queue. They had ikan bakar (grilled fish), ayam opor (chicken in spicy coconut sauce) and pucuk ubi (tapioca leaves) but we decided to try dishes we've not tried before. Each ordered a plate of rice and individually piled two different dishes on the rice and shared a plate of tahu telor.
Washed down with a cup of perfectly frothed teh tarik each.
