If you stay or work around Sri Petaling, above is the question you will keep asking yourself everyday. Herbs & Spices happens to be one of the relatively new restaurant here and I got to try out this restaurant thanks to Christine.
I’ll start with the star of the night which goes to Hainanese Chicken Chop. It was fried to perfection – the skin was very crispy but not oily, while the interior remained tender and juicy. Also, the gravy with green peas and onions really brought back memories. Traditional style.
Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM15.90) - RECOMMENDED
Some of the signature dishes at Herbs & Spices
First dish was Hainanese Mutton Soup, I would recommend this if you love soft and tender mutton.

As for the Prawn Fritters. nothing to shout about.
Prawn Fritters (RM16.90)
The Rib Eye Steak was just ok, grilled to a lovely charred finish on the outside. The meat ws a little hard, guess it was cooked to medium well. I would personally prefer it to be medium cooked.
Rib Eye Steak (RM28.80)
It would seem that we couldn’t get enough of the chicken chop, for we also had the Spaghetti with Chicken Chop, which used the exact same chicken chop, but with a side of spaghetti instead of coleslaw and fries.

The Lamb Shank was meant for sharing, but you can finish it yourself if you’re a big eater like me.

Apart from Western dishes, this restaurant also has a Kelantanese chef who whips up delicious Nasi Dagang to give it an Asian twist. My favourite was the Nasi Dagang with Ayam Berempah, served with a glorious piece of chicken thigh, marinated and fried to an aromatic finish. Yum !

If you’re not a chicken person, there’s also the Nasi Dagang with Ikan Tongkol which came with a side of fish. In my opinion, this paled in comparison to the chicken, so I’d still go for the chicken anytime.
Nasi Dagang with Ikan Tongkol (RM9.50)
The only I like to order when I visit Indonesia is Nasi Goreng Istimewa. The moment I saw the picture, I immediately ordered it. Here, it’s called Nasi Goreng Sri Petaling. The satay was great but I feel the fried rice tasted pretty bland though.
Nasi Goreng Sri Petaling (RM12.50)
For desserts, nothing that I fancy of as I always try to skip sweet stuff, even though there are always exceptions
Creme Caramel (RM5.00) & Sago Melaka (RM4.00)
Apple Pie (RM8.00) & English Trifle (RM6.50)
I would definitely be back to Nasi Dagang and Chicken Chop. This place is comfortable, air-conditioned and has free Wi-Fi. I can foresee myself coming here more often for lunch!
