FOOD REVIEW: Jombali again!!


Yeah, what's with the 'again'? Indeed, you are right. I went to Jombali again. AGAIN. This time around with my 4 school besties for Iftar or buka puasa. Well, if I could share here, I did review about this restaurant before. I personally thought that my second visit would lead me to the almost similar's second review with the first one. I was doubting when my friend suggested to have our iftar here but surprisingly, NO. I could see several significant changes especially through their food and drinks. They finally show the customers why they should be visited not once, more than once possibly! You don't believe me? judge this Nasi Goreng Ayam ordered's photo. The left one is taken from my first visit while last night's is on the right.

I've told ya!  Come, let me share with you what other delicacies we have ordered and indulged in last night.

The waiter was first placed a medium-sized plate of few dates on it on our table. How generous.


 then we ordered these.

from the left: Tauhu Bakar (RM5.90), Drinks: Ribena Longan (RM4.90), Lemon Grass Tea (RM5.90), Bandung Sago (RM4.50), Kantonis Fried Sang Mee (RM10.90), Rojak Buah (RM5.90). Not in the picture: Soya Cincau (RM 3.90)

from left: Chicken Chop Black Pepper (RM13.90), Nasi Kuning Ayam Berempah (RM8.50), Nasi Kebuli Supreme (RM14.90), Nasi Goreng Ayam (RM8.90)

Ohmai. I tell you what, the food were abundant. We could hardly finish it because they gave us such generous quantity of food, I must say. But thanks to the deliciousness of them, we managed to indulge thoroughly in into them and smiled broadly for we were so full and happy. :) True satisfaction.

Here's my extra review on several dishes that I would highly suggest you to try if you happen to visit this restaurant.


price: RM5.90
comment: there's a reason why I first-listed this. This was our flavor of the night! super yummy. The bean curd is perfectly tosted. With generous amount of vegetables stuffed in it. It is also drizzled with roasted peanuts on top. What adds up the deliciousness? the thick sauce. Ohmai! it is simply delicious
  rating: 9/10


price: RM14.90
comment: super filling! it fills your tummy to the max. with the special rice and spiced chicken, sambal telur, papaddom and vegetable acar. What else can you utter other than super filling. I've read several reviews before and yeah, they preferably made sure this was one of the menus listed on their order list.

Jombali Kantonis Fried Sang Mee

price: RM10.90
comment: the gravy is thick and smooth. The noodle is soft and it goes really well with the gravy. The garnishes are sufficient with fish cakes, fried shallot, coriander, lettuce, egg and chicken flesh. 
rating: 8/10

Chicken Chop Black Pepper

price: RM13.90
comment: Still, it is as good as before. Still I recommend this as how I first recommended on my first review from my first visit to Jombali. The chicken is tender inside and crispy outside even though it has been poured with the thick and light black pepper sauce. The outer part of the chicken remains crispy! with french fries, coleslow, cucumber and tomato served along with it, it is just perfect and yeah, abundance! It was perfect for me who loves to share my food because, without sharing it with my friend last night, I merely was able to finish it. LOL.
rating: 9/10

oh..if I could sneak-peeked the distinction between the taste and look of this chicken chop from my first visit and the second's:

the left is from my first visit where they used crinkle french fries. and the right one is  my meal last night. AWESOME!
