    Good stuff over at HD Cuisine. There's an upcoming group lunch there later this month, which I won't be able to attend but I wanted to check it out. So I and a couple of friends decided to head over for dinner.

    The menu ranges pan-Asian but there's some focus on Malaysian. Other than an odd dish I've had here or there over the years, this is a fairly unfamiliar cuisine to me, new flavors and combinations. HD Cuisine is a family-owned and run operation headed by Lyn -- the matriarch -- a remarkably kind and welcoming woman who takes a lot of pride in her operation.

    It's a storefront with one table inside and a few tables outside. We ordered as much as the three of us reasonably thought we could make disappear, and took some seats at one of the outside bistro tables. Shortly after that, the onslaught of food began, and it wasn't too long before Lyn saw how much we ordered and pulled a second table over for us (an LTH tradition :D). We chatted with her about a variety of topics, mostly culinary. It was a lot of fun . . .

    Set Up
    I thought the plates and cutlery were quite beautiful.

    Chicken Satay

    Special Fried Rice

    Vegetable Curry With Dal
    The dal is actually blended and is part of the curry.

    Broccoli With Garlic Sauce

    Malaysian Beef Rendang

    Malaysian Ayam Masak Merah (chicken)

    Chinese Pancake with Pork & Chives
    A throw-in for having ordered over a certain amount of food but I don't remember the exact number.

    Looking forward to heading back and trying some more items. The menu is large and there are a lot of great looking offerings. Way too many for three people to try at one dinner.

    I also tried HD Cuisine a couple weeks ago and thought it was pretty good. I had only tried from the menu the Chicken Curry and Chicken Satay and both were very good. I recommend next time you go to HD Cuisine if you like it spicy to ask for their homemade chili oil/hot sauce on the side which is very tasty as well.

    I hope they add Laksa soup to menu in the future which is my favorite of the Malaysian dishes.

    was good for us as well... we did note that the more "Malaysian"/stuff you don't always find on a menu items were better than the "classic" asian mainstays. For example, we found the pad thai very average/unspectacular, especially compared to their other noodle dishes.
