Chef Lagenda, Deer Park by Obelix

Chef Lagenda delivers a roaring trade at their Flemington location (see Big Fil's review) and when J invited me down to Deer Park, to their other location, I readily took her up on the offer.  Located in a shopping strip on the side of Ballarat Road, this Chef Lagenda is a bit more spacious than their Flemy counterpart.

The menu is similar to that in Flemington, a bit of Malaysian hawker style favourites mixed in with Hong Kong style roast meats and congee.  J was in the mood to go "all out" and we ordered a massive Assam Steamed fish to share with rice ($28).  What came was a fragrant steamed fresh water fish...I'm guessing it was a barramundi.  The Assam sauce which we had chosen on the recommendation of the waitress was delightfully spicy and sour with braised pineapple, eggplant and tomatoes.

Being a sweltering hot 41 degrees, both J and I quickly ordered our cool drinks.  I had the three colours and J had the coconut juice straight up.  The three colours was not as sweet as others I have tasted, which is a good thing in my book.  Nubbly green tapioca "worms", grass jelly, aduki beans and coconut milk over shaved ice really helped to cool me down.  I assumed they had the air con going but it hardly made a dint on the radiant heat coming through the windows straight onto my back.

I like Chef Lagenda and the Deer Park version is just as formidable as the Flemy one.  Decent value dishes and quick service.
