6 To 10

Quick post on a simple neighbourhood restaurant in Section 17

Ok boys and girls.
Here's a super quick post on a place I popped in for lunch this weekend.
(We were actually on our way to Food Foundry but decided to try this place out for a change)

The Lunch

6 to 10 Grill and Nasi Lemak is situated on one corner of the Happy Mansion apartments in Section 17:
6 to 10 exterior...

They are opened very selectively, only lunch and dinner time from Wednesday to Sunday.

Don't expect anything lavish when you go there for a meal. It's pretty much a simple open air, coffeeshop setting with plastic tables, chairs and equally plastic-y tablecloths:
6 to 10 interior...

One of the signature dishes there is the Nasi Lemak with Curry Chicken (RM6++):
Nasi Lemak with Curry Chicken...

The Nasi Lemak was ok overall:
- curry chicken : tender and tasty but nothing superbly special
- rice : fragrant and moist
- sambal : ok... not too spicy but a bit sweet.
- sotong : not too bad also.... "spring-y" texture and the sauce was not too spicy.

There is a good variety of Western dishes there (with the specialty being the Red Wine Pork and the Red Wine Lamb Chops). I wanted something lighter though, so I went for the Pork Chop with Pineapple Sauce (RM12++):
The Pork Chop with Pineapple Sauce...

Hmmmm..
I don't really have anything bad to say about this dish but it definately wasn't great either:
- The meat : moderately tender and tasty (you could taste that it had been marinated very well though)
- The sauce : a bit watery with a savoury but slightly sweet taste.
- The "side dishes" : The french fries were ok but eeeeee.... frozen veggies mixed with mayonnaise.

Overall, although the food wasn't that great, I definately wouldn't mind going back if I felt like having a simple meal for a good price.
(And the parking in the area is free too so that's a plus)
:)

So it's: Simple setting with friendly staff, fair range of Western food and nasi lemak at a decent price BUT only tastes ok although there's nothing much to complain about considering the price.

Let's go there together one day soon.

I wouldn't mind going back to try out some of the other stuff on the menu - the prices are pretty decent.

to liann:
It's at the base of the same block of apartments but on the opposite corner from food foundry.
:)
(It's actually the first shop that you will see in front of you on your right when you turn in the apartments, on your way to FOod Foundry)

Yup. I guess it's just one of those convenient neighbourhood restaurants - the food's not fantastic but tastes ok for the price.

Great! Thanks for the tip.
