Recently I was obsessed with South East Asian food, like Thai and Malaysian food. Almost visiting and discovering one every week. At a place like Campsie I have found this little hidden treasure which does cheap and authentic Malaysian Hawker style food – Albee’s Kitchen.

Very small in size, probably can only fit 30 people max, the first time when I was here we knew we are going to come back, but that time I still haven’t have my blog established hence didn’t take any pics =( but Don’t worry readers, I will keep coming back to try more dish and update this post.

Given the terrible 33+C temperature we decided to stick with non-soupy stuff. We were tossing up between picking the Pandan chicken or deep fried nam yu flavoured pork ribs. At the end we choose the Pandan chicken as we have never tired it and it looks quite tasty and unique wrapped in Pandan leaf, we even wonder did the chicken have Pandan infuse into it haha.

Chendol (House Traditional hawker Green Jelly Ice), $4

As soon as we sat down, we saw the picture of Chendol drink on the wall, and immediately asked the waitress to order two. What a better way to quenche a thirst than to throw down a cold drink full of ice, coconut milk, palm sugar, and chendol (pandan jelly)

Pandan Chicken, $13.80

As the chicken arrived at our table, it was nicely presented wrapped in pandan leafs held with toothpicks. Our initial thought was what purpose of the pandan leaf served in this dish, was it presentation? But after I bited into it, the chicken was very moist and tasty. We soon realised the pandan leaf probably acted as a barrier to keep the juice from running out.

Char Kuey Tiaw, $9.50

Char kuey tiaw was not bad but wasn’t the best we had. This dish lacks a bit of taste and punch of spice. However, portion was generous and we struggle to finish it.

Conclusion: A real find. Albee’s kitchen offers many tempting choice, the food here are authentic and reasonably priced.

    I observed most people just expected their food to be tasty, Nobody demanded their food to be both tasty and of good sanitary standards, given I am after all placing my health and wellbeing into the hands of the shop owner. I usually ask to go to the ladies each time I go out to eat, so that I can check out their kitchen on my way. Thanks to your comment, I went along and found this place actually had kept its kitchen surprisingly cleaned. Very rarely can I find a BUSY resturant in sydney meeting all these conflicting criteria: very tasty food vs excellent consumer value AND vs very clean kitchen. Yep, this place is worth my time doing comment, Hopefully, oneday more resturants and shops will pay more attention to the sanitary standards behind the food we pay for !
