Kedai Makan

WP_20150326_18_44_29_Pro Kedai Makan, according to online translator from Malay to English, means “eatery”; located on the slope of E. Olive Way on Capitol Hill, it is a to-go only restaurant.

In Seattle, we have few options with Indonesian and Malaysian food: I can only think of Malay Satay Hut, Satay and Indo Café.

I wanted to go to Kedai Makan for a very long time, but their dinner-only hour (4pm to 11pm weekday, 4pm to 2am weekends) makes it difficult for me to get there — it never seem right just to drive to Seattle to get take out.

Menu was simple: roti, murtabak (roti with lamb stuffing), potato murtabak, nasi goreng (Malaysian fried rice) and nasi ayam, chicken rice.

They have seasonal specials on the weekends include offerings such as spicy pork ribs, pork belly, trout in banana leaf, beer clams, duck legs and squid curry; late nigh menu (11pm to 2am) includes burger and spicy pork fried rice.

With our first visit, I had to try nasi goreng and nasi ayam; DH felt hungry so we added murtabak.

Eureka! – Malay Satay Hut

Met my friend for lunch at Eureka! at the University Village.

Hadn’t been to U. Village for a while and it was absolutely booming.

Molly Moon opened up a store there, Din Tai Fung had its second Washington location, and a Starbucks Reserve store that was supposed to have food and liquor.

Eureka! had a lovely outside seating, and on a sunny day, it was fantastic!

Looked like Eureka! was a California chain restaurant, and the U village location was the first one outside of CA.

Burgers were the main stake of the restaurants, and Eureka! used all natural, no hormone and no antibiotics beef.

At the end, my friend picked the bison burger, since it was infrequently seen at restaurants and the vegetarian burger sparked my interest.

We ended up waiting for a very long time for our food, even though the restaurant did not strike me as particularly crowded on a weekday lunch time.

The waiter was really nice and brought us complimentary fries while we waited for our food.

The fries had ok flavor, on the softer side and not super crispy.

Both burgers arrived looking fantastic and the buns looked soft, nice and appetizing.
