Lazzat, tapi, tak lazat

There's this new restaurant on Lygon Street selling Malaysian food, which has taken over Ganbaria (##*@&&! another one of my favourite restaurants has closed down!), and its called Lazzat. A play on the word 'lazat' I suppose, meaning 'delicious' in Malay, and Indonesian I suppose, but correct me if I'm wrong.

They sell your usual Nasi Campur canteen style where you get rice and choose 3 dishes , but they also sell stuff like roti canai, roti telur, and roti john, for quite a decent price ($1.50 for roti canai is Australia is a decent price).

Many people (Malaysians and Singaporeans) have been talking about it lately, saying that it was cheap and very worth the money spent. Word about food spreads faster than Road Runner being chased by Wile E Coyote.

Edit: I'm astounded. I've just been surfing random blogs and I'm surprised that other people in Melbourne
whom I don't know also blogged about Lazzat.

I got a chance to sample it last week.

What do you think? Looks too similar to food in Ormond College to me. I think I'll pass. I'd rather eat at Norsiah's.

If I do go there again, it'll be for the rotis.

But then again, its quite a ways down Lygon Street. So maybe not.
