UPDATE – sadly Rasa Penang is now permanently closed.
This little cafe near Clarkson station is a real find. It is so hard to get authentic Malaysian food in the northern suburbs of Perth, and this has easily filled the gap that Sense Lah left behind when it closed.
The menu is 90% traditional Malaysian with a few pan-asian dishes included.
We chose Lor Bak – one of my favourite Malay dishes
This was tasty and crispy with nice prawn crackers and sweet chilli sauce.
We also had beef rendang – which was rich and delicious with coconut rice, and an authentic char kway teow.
This is a lovely little cafe, the owner is really kind, he gave us a sweetie for Chinese New Year. It is a fairly small restaurant, very clean, with pictures of Malaysian street scenes on the wall. It made me pine for Penang and Kuala Lumpur – lovely food memories brought back to me by a short drive to Clarkson. Highly recommended.
