Kaya Malay Bistro (new) - Broadway @ Oak
Where Wimaan Thai used to be, is now a place called Kaya Malay Bistro. I drove by on the opposite side of the road so wasn't able to get a good look. But this stretch of Broadway is gaining in Malay/Singaporean options what with Banana Leaf and Red Ginger a mere blocks away. Then there's Tropika up on Cambie/14th, and the new City One at the plaza at Oak & King Edward.
Anyone been to Kaya ? There's no reviews of them around yet.
Went there Friday night. Didn't love the laksa (out of balance - too strong on fish flavour, not enough sweet/hot) but the fried green beans were great. Rendang had good flavour but the beef needed a bit longer on the braise. The roti + sauce - superb. Stuffed chicken wing was under seasoned.
So, it was OK.
Usual opening week delays but the staff were extremely eager to please. They had Dead Frog on tap and on special for maybe $4.5-5 (after happy hour ended).
