Allisa Cafe @ Sadong Jaya

We were happy to be introduced to a rather new eatery at Sadong Jaya by Alvin Hii. The restaurant in today's review is Allisa Cafe. A cozy eatery serving a wide array of Malay dish. As such, the owner graciously invited us to dig in into some of their signature dishes.

Our first dish for today is the nasi goreng Kampung(RM5.50). A tasty and fragrant fried rice, with crispy anchovies for its topping.
Next up, we had nasi lemak (RM3.50). We're happy to report that this is one of the nicer ones in KK, whereby the rice was fragrant and rich. Even the Sambal was lightly spiced but full of body.
The next one is their specialty, which is the Tom Yam Allisa (RM7.00), it has big fresh and succulent prawn. The winner is in the broth, a blend of secret herbs and spices, and cream that makes it fragrant and tasty. In addition to that, Allisa cafe also supplies ready-mix tom yam packets which is good for one serving. Each pack of cost RM2.50, and is also available for purchase upon request.
Next up, Allison cafe also serves nasi ayam for RM5.00 for the normal one and RM5.50 for drumstick.
They also sell soto daging, which is a big bowl of slightly spicy and meaty broth of noodles. It will cost you RM5.50
For tea time, they serve some really nice karipap. It comes in 3 per plate and chicken costs RM5.00, while beef costs RM5.80. The karipap has a flaky firm crust with spicy and fragrant innards.
Another tea time favourite is the pisang goreng that comes with sambal and it only costs RM1.50 each.
Another nice dish to accompany your rice would be the Taugeh Ikan masin. Crunchy bean sprout in tasty salty gravy that complements the bits of ikan masin. We particularly like this variant of ikan masin, because it has lesser sea smell. Medium plate costs RM5.00 and large ones costs RM8.00
On a hot sunny day, Allisa cafe serve some nice cooling drinks, such as the ABC which is only RM3.50. Big bowl of crushed ice in syrup and lots of nuts, fruits and jelly.
Then there is the 3 layer tea (RM2.80) which has layers of gula melaka, cream and tea. Mix it up and it gives a nice sweety millky taste.
Kopi botol (RM3.00)or cold black coffee are also served here. The taste is sweet and light and is nice on a hot day.
If you want to do DIY catering, then you may purchase ready mix spices at only RM45.00 per kilo and it serve up to 100 pax. The spices are Rendang, masak merah, ayam goreng rempah, kurma, and rempah paceri. team: Thank you for reading our posts.
