Everything Malaysia, Darlinghurst (6 Nov 2018)

129 Oxford St, Darlinghurst NSW 2010

A bit of everything buffet

When I read 'Everything Malaysia' I immediately think of all the classics like satay, char kway teow, laksa, chicken rice, har mee, assam laksa, ayam goreng, hor fun and beef rendang which I love to order. But upon arrival to this simple eatery there's a selection of 12 bain-marie options, 6 of which are vegetarian/vegan. They do have a beef rendang although with bones and I didn't try. The tempura crab uses the fake crab sticks. I also didn't try the sweet chilli fish. The lamb curry had nice flavour although was mostly bone and rubbery cartilage which unfortunately made it pretty inedible. Chicken curry at least had some meat but very boney as well. In the end I actually preferred the vegetarian options with the flavoursome spicy eggplant being my favourite along with the vegetarian curry to enjoy with the rice. $8.80 will get you a one plate with the lot, and $10.80 for an all you can eat option which is pretty reasonable for a feed although keep in mind the choices are limited and they seem to be using the cheaper cuts for the meat so expect lots of bones to contend with. It's early days and there's some bain-marie spots which aren't being used so I'm hoping they'll extend the daily menu to some fried chicken ayam goreng and a noodle dish like char kway teow. On the self serve table of sauces there was some fresh sambal belacan for those who want to give their dish some extra authentic flavour. Service was friendly although with only one person serving at the time did make the process a little slow.
