I’ve found my poison … Norsiah’s Kitchen

I’ve found my poison and its called Norsiah’s Kitchen. Located opposite Lincoln Square, in Carlton, it is close to Melbourne Uni, a stone’s throw away from the Royal Women’s Hospital.

They serve authentic Malaysian cuisine, cooked in a home-styled manner. My favourite dishes are the curry chicken dishes, nasi lemak as well as the roti prata. Especially on cold wintery nights, the spicy nature of the food keeps me warm.

The kitchen is sparse but clean; grab your own utensils and water from the fridge but the food is the reason why people (mainly students) keep going back. Average price of a meal is around $6.50 – $7.50.

What’s your poison?

    Nasi Lemak House on Grattan (between Swanston St. and Lygon St.) is plenty better! I promise!

    Presently I’m enamored with Shanghai dumpling. That place is awesome.

    Yes! I’ve been there but its always crowded. It is very difficult to grab a seat unless you enjoy eating out in the cold.

    The one on tattersalls lane. It has upstairs seating for the lunch crowd, and it’s so cheap!!! (Two friends and I ate there, ate so much that we were groaning, and it came to $24 total – so nice….)

    What are you guys on man? Hungry Jacks is the way to go! The one opposite RMIT gives you a free upsize when you produce your student card! What a deal!
