KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 3 (Bernama) -- Nu Sentral, located at Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Kuala Lumpur is a new addition to the list of posh shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur.

Even newer is Sambal & Sauce, a restaurant situated at the mall's lower ground. Launched on Jan 1 by the Minister of Tourism and Culture Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz, the restaurant serves local dishes as well as western cuisines.

"Like other women, I love shopping and after doing a round of shopping, I normally like to take a breather sipping teh tarik and eating local dishes.

I find that not many malls that I normally shop has a place that I can 'lepak' and have my teh tarik, so this is one of the reasons why I decided to open Sambal & Sauce," Norintan Safinas Norazman, the director of Sambal & Sauce told Bernama's Lifestyle and Youth recently.

Being a new player in a competitive environment, Norintan said she and her team were ready to take on the challenge and that they were well aware of the fact that business was not business without challenges.

Homemade Sambal

Sambal & Sauce serves breakfast and lunch buffets for customers with a variety of local dishes and all types of 'sambal' such as 'sambal belacan' and 'sambal tempoyak', said Ayda, the restaurant's manager.

Asked on the restaurant's unique feature Norintan said : "We serve all kinds of dishes that are suitable for everyone, from all races as well as for foreigners.

Our dishes range from mamak food to kampung style dishes as well as western food that can cater to everyone's needs. We also serve our very own sambal, created by the chefs."

The restaurant's interior was designed to provide a cosy and comfortable eating place that patrons can 'lepak' in while enjoying their favourite local dish and a cup of teh tarik, said Norintan.

Sambal & Sauce is open from 8 am until 12 midnight.
