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.
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.
