轰隆隆,上世纪的铁路情怀: 静止的旅程,晃动的原是缓缓的食光呀! Embark on a gastronomical journey on board Terminal One!

[编辑 Editor 吕大人   英译 Translator 刘大人   摄影 Photographer 黄大人]

在大人的记忆里,火车绝对是有生以来使用率最低的交通工具,印象最深刻的自是那一趟与日籍友人结伴於澳洲东岸往南,坐了逾十个钟头长途火车的经历,窗外景色虽美不胜收,无法预知的晃动却非人人可克服,抵达后的疲累至今仍是历历在目。

「大人,若是让你乘搭一趟丝毫不摇晃的火车呢?」如此神奇的魔法列车,莫非世上还有另一个大人所不知晓的九又四分之三站台?

For us, there’s something truly timeless about trains but none more “memorable” than our longest-ever train ride (while on a budget) from the Australia’s east coast heading south that had us sitting up for nearly 10 hours, trying to grab some rest all while soaking in the beautiful scenery around the next bend. Given a choice again as we look to relive the good old college days down under, we would rather take the plane this time round.

However, it doesn’t take us long to realise that a number of our friends have been taking a gastronomical ride and back, without any hints of motion sickness or fatigue, just culinary gratification. Surely there exist a certain “Platform Nine and Three-Quarters” that is magically concealed along Jalan Serampang where foodies board the “Hogwarts Express” in order to attend the school of fine food? With bated breath, we decided to make our way through the entrance, formerly known as Station One, not knowing what to expect…

以模拟火车场景、刚欢度周岁的 Terminal One (前身为 Station One),位于新山彩虹花园角头商业单位,由于面积异常宽敞,因此店内即便是划分为三种不同区块,桌与桌之间的距离亦显舒适。

推开仿火车包厢铁门后,眼前此景果真有回到上世纪的铁路情怀啊~「难怪大人瞧见许多初来乍到的人客一进门往往会纠结於该选哪个区域就坐。」复古的行囊与火车窗所勾勒出的画面极为到位,但大人最钟意的仍是有着枣色布帘的靠窗位置,在丝毫不晃动的火车上,大人这一回不必战战兢兢就能准备开餐啦!

Coming “on board” Terminal One (not 9¾ ) is like walking into a huge train car with all of its vintage and originality, with the staff dressed in uniform just like what we will see on a train, as we ponder our next culinary destination. There’s plenty of room for passengers, including our luggage (if any) in the overhead compartment, which makes travelling on this culinary journey a more comforting experience. With a choice of three sitting areas, we decided to take our place by the window, with the knowledge that there will be none of the aversion that comes with bumpy train rides. Let the journey begin!

柠檬酸梅冰沙 Frozen Lemonade Plum

琺瑯铁杯里盛着夏日清凉解药柠檬酸梅冰沙 (Frozen Lemonade Plum, RM9),「绝对是杯能让人将烦躁心情立即翻转180度的微酸冰饮!」透心凉,伴着同伴的娓娓道来,渐渐融化的酸味冰沙依旧舒畅好味。

First up, some welcome drinks to soothe the nerves. Who doesn’t love beating the heat with some lip-smacking citrus flavours, especially when this tangy Frozen Lemonade Plum blended with ice gets a frosty makeover for a refreshingly and fresh burst of ripe lemons? Shiok ah!

巧克力香蕉冰沙 Chocolate Banana

成双的何止大人与友人,以琺瑯铁杯出场的还有这巧克力香蕉冰沙 (Chocolate Banana, RM11),两者之间的比例恰好,再来一球香草冰淇淋,「谁也抢不了谁的主场,好喝。」

We are always a fan of when bananas and chocolate come together, and this Chocolate Banana was no exception. The addition of a scoop of vanilla ice cream came together nicely in the match made in heaven. Yummy!!!

招牌香煎黑胡椒鸡排 House Special Chicken Chop (Black Pepper Sauce)

车厢内的餐桌们皆有这道热门主食撑场,招牌香煎黑胡椒鸡排 (House Special Chicken Chop, Black Pepper Sauce, RM19) 「淋身弹嫩鸡扒的黑椒酱,不过于喧嚣的辣度让人轻易将距离感拉近。」若不喜黑椒滋味,亦可点选另一热门之选 – 蘑菇酱。

As in many places, the chicken chop is a well-loved favourite, especially so when the House Special Chicken Chop uses tender chicken thigh lathered with our preferred black pepper sauce, served with the standard sides of potato wedges and garden salad. If you’re not up for the spicy sensation that will leave that special tang on your tongue, the savoury mushroom sauce could offer you a soothing alternative.

三文鱼意大利面 Creamy Salmon Spaghetti

带有几许微酸而奶味浓郁的三文鱼意大利面 (Creamy Salmon Spaghetti, RM22) ,仍可尝其嚼劲,并未过于软绵,「面条份量极多,伴以煎得微脆的三文鱼片、食蔬等,绝对饱足。」

The Creamy Salmon Spaghetti is also worth checking out as the al-dente pasta is tossed in cream sauce and topped with a generous serving of grilled salmon fillet, resulting in a dish which is creamy and bursting with umami, yet not too heavy on our tummies.

咸蛋海鲜炒饭 Salted Egg Yolk Seafood Fried Rice

盛开得像春日花朵的咸蛋海鲜炒饭 (Salted Egg Yolk Seafood Fried Rice, RM16),外观看似一般炒饭,送入口中后才发现咸蛋黄的巨大威力,「坊间有道,咸蛋黄有清肺丰肌效果,难怪粉丝人数始终高居不下。Terminal One 的咸蛋海鲜炒饭湿润度略高,每一口皆可饱尝满满咸蛋黄滋味,担心滋味过重不妨以一旁的绿叶解腻吧!」

Ever since the hype of salted egg yolk dishes hit the local food scene, many restaurants have jumped on the trend and managed to incorporate this glorious ingredient with just about everything. The Salted Egg Yolk Seafood Fried Rice has an excellent blend of savouriness from the sauce and crispiness from the fried prawns for just the right amount of flavour, but we can always count on the accompanying lettuce if the taste ever got too overwhelming for your liking.

咖喱面 Curry Noodle

服务人员推荐的新口味,大人初时心想咖喱面 (Curry Noodle, RM15) 该如何能有突破性的发展呢?「这料多实在的咖喱面汁果然很让人惊喜,香浓之余还有微酸的口感,这崭新配方的咖喱汁值得一试。」

The moment we tasted the aromatic flavour of the gravy which has a tinge of sour, making the Curry Noodle appetising and savoury. On the whole, this calorie-worthy dish exudes a delightful, warm sensation, with a genuine and pleasant local flavour which we highly recommend all to try.

台式炸鸡排 Crispy Taiwanese Chicken Chop

把主食都摆入五脏庙中后,腹中传来讯息得来点饭后小点才算完美,好吧!来份台式炸鸡排 (Crispy Taiwanese Chicken Chop, RM17) 如何?「这儿的台式鸡排与平日所尝有异,或许是少了熟悉的咸辣粉末,取而代之的乃是搭配份量充裕的炸薯条,辣椒酱请出列吧!」

If you’re a fan of Taiwan’s night market street food, chances are you will love the Crispy Taiwanese Chicken Chop and enjoy it without your passport! The chicken was incredibly tender, though somewhat short in the spicy flavour that we craved, but more than made it up with the generous serving of french fries. Extra chilli sauce, please!

「用餐时段,准时到站的人客们鱼贯而入。」说时迟那时快,人潮都说好了不见不散吗?静止的旅程,晃动的原是缓缓的食光呀~

As we approached our “destination”, we noticed there are many more passengers looking to come on board and indulge their senses in this interesting dining experience. Our entire journey was enjoyable, and if we really have one complaint, that is time really flies when we are having fun. Another good thing being, we don’t have to wait for 1 September to come on board so we may be back again for another ride, soon maybe?
