Tina's Kitchen, Mends Street, South Perth

There's a little hole-in-the-wall place off Mends Street in South Perth called Tina's Kitchen. Nothing flash. It's overlooking the public carpark behind The Windsor Hotel.

I popped around there for lunch one day with my mate Norman, and discovered it to be quite intriguing indeed. It specialises in traditional Singaporean style Malay hawker food, and there's quite a range, including Nasi Lemak, Mee Siam and Nasi Goreng (Malay fried rice). We both decided to order the Mee Rebus, which is a bowl of thick egg noodles in a mildly spicy curry gravy, accompanied by cut green chillier and sliced boiled egg. Not something you'd easily find in Australia. Very tasty indeed, although I suspect a fair bit of sugar was used in making the gravy.
Like I said,it's not flash, but the food is tasty and cheap, and I'm planning to go back there to work my way through the rest of the menu.

Post Note: So I went back again with my mate Benji, and this time ordered the Mee Siam, with Benji going for some special fried rice dish.  They tasted as good as they look in the photo.  And all for under $10 a dish!
