Malaysian Cuisine @ Matahari Grill

Rick just bought a new car and wanted to head downtown for dinner to parade his new ride. Initially we were planning to try out Guu's latest Sakabar on Bloor St. but the 45 minute wait time was too long for our stomachs to handle. Our next option was Matahari Grill a Malaysian Restaurant which I haven't visited for over 8 years.

Stir-Fried Vermicelli

The one dish I still remember from 8 years ago was Matahari Grill's Vermicelli. The Vermicelli was stir-fried in a soy-based gravy and was delicious.

Grilled Sea Bass Sambal
Grilled Sea Bass with Sambal
The Grilled Sea Bass was a little dry but the Sambal Paste was quite aromatic.

Chicken Curry

Their Chicken Curry was a little watered down for my liking.

Roti Canai

Nothing spectacular. The Roti Canai tasted like it's from a frozen package.

Beef Rendang

The Beef Rendang was fork tender and tasted similar to what you could get in Malaysia. It was my favorite dish of the night besides the Vermicelli.

Char Koay Teow

This was so-so. The Koay Teow was a little too soggy.
