I love Malaysian food! It's just too bad there aren't many malaysian restaurants in downtown, we have to travel all the way uptown. One night, my friend and I decided to check out Gourmet Malaysia which seemed to have many approvals of Malaysians I know in Toronto.



Gourmet Malaysia is just like any large Chinese restaurant. Seatings are kind of random and scattered throughout- with tables, booths and round tables. It was busy when we walked in, but we ended up standing around for good 4~5 minute before anyone came to encourage our presence. At restaurants in downtown? unthinkable!! In uptown and at asian restaurants? it's frustrating but very understandable.




Table Setting







After we were finally seated, I had such a hard time deciding what I wanted to order. I wanted to order everything and their menu was huge! After my excitement died down a bit, I narrowed it down to few items I just needed to try.



Ordered: Mango salad with Satay Chicken (#17)


* 6 chicken skewers and mango salad for $9.99

* Mango salad was horrible, it was sliced up mango pieces in sweet chili sauce
* I originally wanted to order lamb skewers (yumm) but they were out so ordered chicken instead

* Chicken skewers were decent, peanut sauce was kind of runny and bland but it was overall good



Ordered: Roti Cannai (#33)


* 3 pieces of roti cannai with choice of chicken or beef curry for $6.99
* Roti Cannai came hot and fresh with a side of beef curry
* They were very buttery and rich tasting compared to ones I had before


* thin layers of roti cannai made it easier to pick up the beef curry goodness
* This was so satisfying and the roti cannais were huge!



Ordered: Hainanese chicken on rice (#231)


* Plate of hainanese chicken and rice for $7.80
* Chicken was served warm (everytime I had it somewhere else, it was served cold?) and tough
* I found the pieces to be too big and because of the size, it lacked flavor

* I wish the chicken pieces were smaller and fattier* On the other hand, the rice was so good!
* I could probably eat the rice just by itself, it was one of the best chicken rice I ever had
* I will probably just order the rice as a side, would pass on the chicken


Ordered: Penang prawn mee (#211) (weekend only) 2/5


* Bowl of noodle with clear soup served with hard boiled eggs and prawn for $7.80
* Noodles that came with this were like egg noodles
* They were chewy and the consistency was perfect


* I found this to be really bland, I thought the soup will have more flavor
* The soup almost tasted too watered down for me
* This was my first time having this so maybe it's suppose to be like that
* Personally I didn't enjoy it very much



Summary: Dishes were hit or miss at Gourmet Malaysia. Maybe I ordered the wrong things but in terms of authentic flavors and quality, I found it to be quite inconsistent. I loved the chicken flavored rice and even just for that, I would go back to this place. I can't wait to go back and try other dishes (hopefully all Hits next time!)
