A recent reader comment suggested I try Chai – Eat like Malaysian on Pelham St, Carlton. It was already on my list of places to visit but the reminder made me more curious and made me want to go there sooner. I visited for lunch recently and was impressed with my choice of crispy pork with yam and rice.

I wasn’t sure what form the yam (taro) would take, and it turned out to be a puree or sauce. It’s mild nutty flavour is complemented with chilli and it works well with the pork. A fine choice at $9.80 and worth returning for. Eat drink stagger is also impressed with the food.
