6 to 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak is located smack in the old PJ - right beneath the humble flats of Happy Mansion Section 17, PJ. It was around for many many years back (since 1992?), and many many food reviews had already laid their testimonies to the shop's fame.

I grew up in the same neighborhood nearby and throughout the years, I noticed how busy it became. Plus, the obvious increase in price, inflation?

Grill pork chop with pineapple sauce (RM 16.50), served with crinkle fries, salad, and drenched in a concoction of pineapple and brown sauce. The gravy blended well with the taste of the pork but the meat was a tad tough and dry. It wasn't the same as before, their pork chops used to bring back some tasty memories when it was more tender and juicier. The price back then during 2006 was RM 12, in 2008 it was RM 14.50 and now, RM 16.50.

Fish and chips with tartar sauce (RM 12.50), at RM 12.50, it was a steal! Freshly made to order and it was pretty decent. The other thing that I really hate about this place is - they charge RM 1 for extra sauces (tartar sauce, black pepper, brown sauce, sambal, etc.)! That's ridiculous, how much more that you want to earn!?

New Zealand grill lamb chop (RM 18.00), seasoned grilled lamb chop served with crinkle fries and salad. The price of this lamb chop back in 2006 was RM 13 only - that's RM 1.25 increment every year!

The only way to recuperate back the inflation is to drench the lamb chop with the mint sauce kau kau!

Nevertheless, the portion was satisfying, taste was okay and the meat was tender enough.

Their signature dish, red wine pork rib with pineapple sauce (RM 32.90), yes it's RM 32.90! And it only cost RM 18 back in 2006 - that's like RM 3.70 increment every year!

Whatever it is, these humongous ribs are a carnivore's delight and it brings out the caveman in us. So cut a meaty portion, add a bit of the grilled pineapple and slather with the sauce, it was heavenly! It was juicy and went well with the pineapple sauce that has a tinge of red wine and pineapple sweetness in it.

These ribs have more fats so they tend to be juicier and tender. Still, it wasn't the way I remembered how they used to be. Apart from being cheaper, I remembered how easily it melted-in-my-mouth. Somehow, something has changed.

Grill dory fish with lemon butter sauce (RM 13.80), this zesty grilled dory fillet is served with crinkle fries and salad. Decently nice and surprisingly, fish dishes here seems to be more economical than the other meats.

How often do you get nasi lemak served with non-halal pork rendang? Their famous nasi lemak is available from RM 8 and goes all the way to RM 15 with choices of either 1, 2 or 3 side dishes. With choices like chicken curry, mutton curry, beef rendang, pork rendang, sambal cuttlefish or dried shrimp with minched pork sambal. I chose the mutton curry and beef rendang nasi lemak served with the usual condiments; peanuts, ikan bilis, hard boiled egg and sambal (RM 11.50). The coconut rice was aromatic and cooked to right fluffy texture, while the sambal had the right spiciness and sweetness. Both the mutton and beef were cooked to a fork-tender texture, very fragrant and spicy!

It was actually really good! But was it worth RM 11.50? Pretty darn sure I can get cheaper nasi lemak with comparable quality. Plus, you can't ask for extra gravy or sambal unless you're willing to fork out RM 1, I'll rather stick to a friendlier nasi lemak joint!

Verdict: The price of food is rising so's frightening! 6 to 10 was once well-known for their tasty yet economical western food but not now. Still, 6 to 10 remains popular and often crowded during dinner time. I guess as long as there is demand, there will always be supply.

May 8, 2011: Sadly, 6 to 10 is moving out from Happy Mansion Sec17 to Aman Suria. Not sure why but it can't be good for the long loyal community in Sec17. Doubt we'll go all the way to Aman Suria but again, I'm sure they have no choice somehow.
