Resto Review: Alhambra’s Yazmin
Now that I’ve actually had Malaysian food in Malaysia, Yazmin can’t compare. Before, it was one of the better M’sian joints in the 626 and it’s still decent. My friend and I agreed that the waiter creeped us out, but it was nice seeing a family operation unfolding before us, with the sons constantly asking us if we needed anything and the father behind them.
As for the food, the Malaysian fried rice was seriously bland. Nothing complex about the taste but the fish chips were decent. The ayam panggang kecum, crispy chicken with coconut rice and a side of preserved veggies was a lot more interesting. I loved the chicken’s texture and the fragrant rice was a good complement.
In sum, it was a decently priced and filling meal made cheaper by a 20% Main Street coupon that works on many restaurants on the street.
