JJ’s Cafe – Malaysian Food In Newcastle

JJ’s Cafe – Malaysian Food In Newcastle – Malaysian are now spread all over the world, although not as huge group as the Chinese are, but there is a lot of Malaysians residing in the UK, or other western country. Thus, looking for a Malaysian cuisine to cure homesickness is rather easy, same goes to Newcastle Upon Tyne, where I am right now. This little city in the North East of England has as many as 3 restaurants selling Malaysian’s cuisine. One being JJ’s Cafe, another one is Mamak Corner and the last one is Rasa Nusantara.
JJ’s Cafe is located on Heaton Road, somewhere about 25 minutes away from City Campus, somewhere near Morrisons, you will know if you resides in Newcastle.
Speaking about JJ’s Cafe, their menu is pretty much Malaysian food, you can find most of the mainstream Malaysian food like Nasi Lemak, Nasi Goreng, Chicken Curry, Curry Laksa, Wantan Mee (dry), Maggi Goreng, Roti Canai, as well as Char Koay Teow and more. One thing about eating Malaysian food abroad is with an open mind, do not expect much and don’t compare with home. The taste is may not come close, but they are good somehow. Other than Malaysian food, they do English breakfast and tea too, but they never caught my craving till now.

Curry chicken rice, I was not attracted to this because I can cook my own curry at home. XD
Hainanese Chicken Rice which doesn’t feels hainanese to me, but then it’s good!
Char Koay Teow, not Penang-style, I’ll just call it a general Malaysian style, spicy and sweet. I find it good.
Food choices are pretty awesome, so do the price, most of the food at less than or around £5 which I would say reasonable because you can hardly find this price of Malaysian food in the UK. One funny thing that my friend told me that, if you see Malaysian food selling more than £6/7, the owner must be a Malaysian Chinese, Malaysian Indian/Malay would be selling them cheaper. =D LOL.
