So we had just returned from our KL trip and arrived in SG at night.
We actually wanted to have some Bone Steak at M.A Deen Biasa but after a long walk – discovered it’s under renovations!
So we walked a little further at chanced upon Al-Tasneem.
We had some Bone Steak after all (Look out for the special Bone Steak Battles coming soon!) and we also ordered something that none of us have had before…
|Murtabak Rusa ($10.00)|
So Deer meat (aka Venison) is not really something you see everyday at your local Mamak stall am I right?
I’m thinking it’s more like Italian or some western cooking for that kinda thing but here we were with some Murtabak Rusa for the first time.
The size of the murtabak itself is about the size of a $5-6 mutton/chicken murtabak I reckon so the Rusa seems to almost double the price of your dish.
You can see that it’s minced up really finely and spread out sparingly in your murtabak.
To be honest, the meat itself was actually pretty salty when I tried it on its own.
It wasn’t overpoweringly salty on its own but unfortunately, the curry that was served together with the murtabak was salty. Seriously salty. So when you put the two together, SALT OVERLOAD!
Azim commented that the texture kinda reminded him of floss. As in like beef/chicken floss.
Razali added that for the price we were paying, we expected a more generous serving of the meat. (Everyone seems to agree with that one) Plus with it being so dry, perhaps the cooking style of frying might not be suitable since we haven’t really mastered how to cook Venison like the Westerners do.
Murtabak Rusa 3/5
Murtabak Rusa 3/5
Murtabak Rusa 3.5/5
Murtabak Rusa 4/5
Overall, we’d say that this is definitely something different for you to try.
“Murtabak? Chicken? Mutton? How about Rusa?!” Be adventurous!!
Just hope that the salt level goes down a little.
