Lazat, 495 Ballarat Rd, Sunshine. Phone: 9312 7880
Once upon a time, not so long ago and outside of Flemington, there was nary a trace of Malaysian food in the western suburbs.
Then arrived Wok Noodle in Seddon.
And then, more recently, Chef Lagenda hung out its shingle in Deer Park to wild applause of most who live in the vicinity.
Now those two are to be joined by another Malaysian joint, on a busy, unlovely bit of Ballarat Rd just up from the Gold Leaf eatery of Chinese persuasion.
When I drop in to get the lowdown, things are in a state of disarray, but management tells me they’ll be up and running in about a week – and even, “hopefully”, by Monday, December 2.
The building they’re taking over was most recently sporting signage that said something along the lines of “Grills Plus”, but it was closed down by the time I noticed it and so have no idea what, if anything, was cooking when it was running.
If it ever was.
The menus the Lazat folk provide me hold little by way of surprises but are reassuringly stacked with familiar faves – the usual noodles about the $11 mark, soft shell crabs two for $12.80, Hainan chicken rice at $9.80, roast meats, lobak for $5 and so on.
One word: Yummy!
