Located along Glynburn Road in Hectorville, Nira by Indulgence is a good place to enjoy a good range of Malaysian food. Their menu notably changes each week so it is advisable to check their Facebook page to see what is currently offered.

The chicken Maryland in the Nasi Tomato Ayam Masak Merah had tender flesh, with the spiciness of the gravy being suitable for most tastes. As its name implies, the dish featured tomato rice rather than the usual coconut rice. The tomato rice had a delectable savoury flavour. Scattered over the rice were fried shallots and raisins for extra flavour and texture.

For those that prefer beef, the Nasi Tomato set also had an option that featured Beef Kerutuk, a Kelantanese version of Beef Rendang. The chunks of beef were not too tough and the spiciness of the gravy was that you would expect from a Rendang. It also had sufficient coconut milk to give it the slightly thick texture of a curry. Both Nasi Tomato sets came with a serving of Acar Timun (pickled vegetables) and a boiled egg.

One of their more popular items, the Spiral Curry Puffs had pastry that resembled what we used to enjoy in Singapore. The potato and curry filling were cooked just right with enough spice to make eating them a satisfying experience.

Aside from Malaysian dishes, the restaurant also offers pastries, some of which have an Asian influence to them. The texture of the Durian Cheesecake was not too soft and had a good degree of durian flavour. For those concerned about the cheesy flavour, it was actually quite mild.

Another of the pastries available during our visit, the sponge cake in the Pandan Cake was light and fluffy with a delectable pandan flavour. The layers of buttercream between the cake were also flavoured with pandan to enhance its flavour. A hint of coconut flavour was provided by the dusting of shredded coconut on top.

The décor of the restaurant gave it a casual feel, with the windows ensuring it was not too gloomy. If you desire Malaysian food while at Hectorville, consider dropping by at Nira by Indulgence for a meal or a snack.
