Layang Layang - San Jose

Went there on Friday night. There were people sitting outside the two benches outside waiting. Our total wait was around 20 mins so it wasn’t bad. The place is small and tables are so close to each other. My nephew was elbowed a couple of times by one kid that sat behind him. And my back almost touched the table behind me. It didn’t feel that we have privacy at all.

We ordered char kwe tiau (fried wide rice noodle), roti canai, nyonya fish (fried tilapia with mango, onion and bell pepper), hainamese chicken,, fried kangkung, nasi lemak and rojak. All in all the food was tamed and felt like there’s something missing. Char kwe tiau was prepared with smaller noodle instead of wide and the noodle was dry noodle instead of fresh so the taste was different.

Roti canai was a big hit with two kids in our group that night. It was fun to eat. They tore off the roti and dipped it into the curry sauce that accompanying it. The curry sauce was more on the sweet side. It's still tasty.

Since we recently just checked out Banana Leaf (Vancouver), the nasi lemak here couldn't even come close to the one in Vancouver. The nasi lemak in Layang Layang only came with rendang, a few peanuts, sliced hard boiled eggs. A bit on the stingy side.
