Homst Restaurant TTDI

About 2-3 weeks back, my bf n I decided to go for dinner at Santai in TTDI, went there and they were closed!

So, my bf suggested that we tapau food from the pasar malam (night market) instead, we couldn't find anything interesting there as most peddlers were already packing their stuff (well it was already 9ish)...

So, we drove around the area and spotted Homst a chinese muslim restaurant, quite a lot of diners inside (we noticed the place in our previous visits but most of the time the place was empty), anyway we decided to give Homst a try though my bf remarked "I don't think it will be nice, it is probably full because Santai is closed." He agreed to try the place because we were too lazy to drive elsewhere :-)

We ordered 3 dishes - telur dadar (omellette), kangkung belacan (water convolvulus cooked with shrimp paste) and fish head curry. Ha ha the restaurant surprised us! The service was efficient and the dishes were actually quite good though we had tasted better curry at Jalan Pudu. Our lesson for the day...Never judge a book by its cover...in this case never judge a restaurant by the number of diners inside the shop (though most of the time this rule serves us well ie empty restaurants equal to bad food). We'll definitely visit this place again.

Last night my bf n I went to Homst again (our 2nd visit). We ordered omelette,kung po chicken, kailan and prawn sambal. Hmm...all tasted awful! We'll never return to this place again.

My bf said "last time the food tasted better maybe the chef is sick tonight?"

Obviously other diners think the restaurant is ok as most tables were almost fully occupied.

I always like homst tofu soup but now they only put vege in the soup. Last time, they put chicken & prawn as well. I think they are trying to save cost even though their foods are expensive!!
