Pergh.. Tobat sedap baq hang!! It is as sedap as the tagline literally writes. I first noticed this food stall in February when it was first open. There were such a long queue along the main entrance into Sungai Penchala that it was so hard to missed the prominent red signage shop that had made a name for itself for the longest of queue. I am not the type that would queue and try but I will queue if I know for sure that the food is good.
Daging masak merah Loqstaq was originated in Jalan Sultanah, Alor Star Kedah 30 years ago and was formerly known as Nasi Azmi Jalan Sultanah. Sungai Penchala is their first branch and they are opening another branch in 2 weeks at Mutiara Damansara. The Daging Masak Merah Loqstaq adds to the wonders of Sungai Penchala list of delicious affordable food alongside Sambal Hijau, Ewa, 123 corner, Muhibbah as well as dozens of others.
During the labour day weekend, after a get together with my senior COBC bootcamp instructors, Corporal Wong (in purple tee, cover picture above) suggested we should try the Daging merah loqstaq which he gave a two thumbs and two toes up!! We could not resists. Corporal Amir and Sarge Chun had never tried it too and was eager to taste it. Sarge Suresh whom had it with Wong once before, attested to the delicious meal.
The stall is open at 11am every day and we arrived sharp at the opening hour. There weren't so many people when we arrive (thank god) and we ordered our meal. The stall served two meal set, daging masak merah and ayam masak merah. All of us red meat carnivors had the beef. Each meal cost us RM6.50 per set with a free flow water. There were 4 types of water served (including H20).
Honestly, I agree with Wong's two thumbs and two toes up!! I quickly tapau 3 pack of daging masak merah set with rice for Anny, Aaraf and my maid.
Today, I went again with my brother Amnan and he too fell in love with it, we tapau another 3 packs to bring home.
The restaurant is open until all the food is finished, usually by 2-3pm. Do give it a try and bring more business to our once a quiet kampung but do not come too early. I am usually there at 11:45am for an early lunch. Please come after 12pm or I may have to join a longer queue to have my lunch uurgh... hehee.
