Grilled Chicken Chop with Rice in Josephine Eatery & Bar (Cafe Bistro) @ Cameron Square Mall [Malaysia]

Cameron Highlands has a shopping centre! It's true and even though not on the same scale as those found in cities, it's still a first for a laid-back place better known for its lower temperature, nature / agricultural tours and steamboat.

We didn't really explore the shopping centre and it just happened that Alex wanted lunch after our long trek to / from the tea plantation and the name, Josephine Bistro Cafe, appealed to his picky mind. I actually preferred Malaysian delights like Roti Canai but my suggestion was shot down. 

I love set meal and opted for the nice looking grilled chicken with rice that's only RM 12.90. Complimentary drink, white coffee / lemon tea, would be served as part of the set. 

Alex's order wasn't part of the set although he ordered ice lemon tea as i did with my set. However, it's more worth it to get the "normal" ice lemon tea as it came in much bigger volume! The drink was rather good; not too sweet and infused richly of lemon. 

Now, i am expecting some differences from the picture on the menu to the real thing but my grilled chicken with rice was a jaw dropper and didn't look at all like the menu (yes, i noted the disclaimer that pictures shown are for illustration only). Whatever the case, i can forgive the aesthetics so long it's tasty. 

Verdict - the fried runny egg was the best thing from the entire dish! Indicated as grilled, it was in fact deep fried with a bland sauce drenched over it. Even though the skin was crispy, it couldn't help to remedy the failure of the tough, rubbery chicken meat.
