We have written about The Kitchens before but this time we wanted to share our experience of the Roti and Buns. It was pretty quiet after Christmas with many eating houses closed; The Kitchens was no different. Our group was a family of four adults and one toddler. We were seeking a place where we could get good food and feel relaxed with a young one running about. The Kitchens delivered. We ordered all our food from the Roti and Buns, where we encountered friendly service and a reasonable set of food options.
The spinach and cheese roti was definitely a hit – yum. Juicy, tasty and soft.
The prawn dumplings were good and fairly flavoursome. We added some chilli dipping sauce and a bit of soy sauce for extra grunt.
The vegetarian dumplings were great – juicy inside with a good mix of vegetables. On the list for next time.
Once again we liked to add soy and chilli to the dumplings. The place was very happy to provide us with extra sauces.
Some of party also ate meat and reported the pork buns and chicken curry were great. The toddler gobbled up two of these buns and seemed to really enjoy them.
Visited: 27 December 2016
Cost: $72.00 for four adults and a toddler (sharing)
Verdict: We felt is was good value, tasty and great location for a family group
It was a relatively cold and wintry night, so we felt like something spicy. A friend had previously told us about a little hidden gem – Kenny’s Malay Kitchen located at the Bowls club in Broadbeach Waters, Queensland (Australia).
We thought ‘why not?’ let’s just give it a go. We decided to arrive early (for us) around 6 PM and have a quick meal. After looking at the menu – and also getting a Chinese version of the menu! – we decided to try some curry puffs and some roti bread as a starter. Both were excellent.
Next, we tried some salt and pepper soft shell crab (an all time favourite with us), as well as some prawn sambal and a tofu dish.
It was all very tasty and, for total price for three of us around $75, we thought it was pretty good value. This place is fully licensed and you buy your drinks at the bar adjoining the restaurant. Most drinks, such as a glass of wine or some beer cost about $5 each.
We enjoyed the food and agreed that we would come back for another cheap and cheerful meal. It is a simply decorated venue so don’t have high class expectations for the decor. We visited in June 2016.
