Wild Serai – Malaysian Food in London | Review

The blog being revived after a long hiatus. A review about Wild Serai who whips up amazing Malaysian Meal.  Wild Serai has been on my list to visit for a very long time, finally when they opened the doors as a pop up restaurant at The Sun & 13 Cantons, I made a mental note to visit them last month.

A mini heat wave in London during spring all the more reason to choose the very day to visit.  My partner in crime on this occasion is Nisha (Host at London Chaiparty & Macaron Maker at BoBo Macaron).

We arrived for lunch and were quickly seated, ordered drinks from the bar. We were informed by the wait staff that unfortunately it is cash only at Wild Serai while Nisha paid a visit to the nearest cash machine I ordered couple of starters to start with

I ordered for Chicken Satay (£8.50) and Crispy Nyonya Fried Chicken Wings (£6.50), it always a make or break kind of situation when it comes to Satay in London. While I waited for the starters to arrive, Nisha returns she wanted to try the curry puffs (£6.50) we ordered them as well.

I was not disappointed with them both the starters were thoroughly enjoyed along with the sauces licked clean. The sauces must be bottled and sold it was so good.  I have never been a fan of curry puffs of any kind so will skip my thoughts on it (I personally prefer the Indian flaky puffs no judgement please).

For the mains I ordered Nasi Lemak with Beef Rendang with Prawn Sambal (£12) it came with all the regular sides fried egg check, anchovies and peanuts check, sliced cucumber check and the all-important banana leaf double check. The meal on all levels was good I only wish I didn’t eat so many starters at this point.

Nisha ordered Roti Canai with Malaysian Chicken Curry (£9) a large portion after the starter I think we should have paid attention when menu clearly mentioned large plates. The chicken curry was very nice so glad that they used meat with bones  always gets a brownie points from me, as the curry gets this lovely flavour from the bones.

If like me you want to order a lot of food at Wild Serai and get stuffed do visit their page here for more information. After the meal we headed to Hyde Park and spent few hours under the sun and tree you know why.
