The first couple visits to Mamak, we weren't impressed. The food was just ok, we still went to Banana Leaf. I think the turning point was when we had a big family dinner here back in October 2012. The food was better, more like what Malaysian food should taste like. Ever since then, we've been Mamak regulars. It helps they serve one of my favorite dessert here, the es cendol. It's not the best, but sometimes something is better than nothing.
Here are a few of my favorite dishes at Mamak:
|Es Cendol - it's considered a dessert, but I order it as a drink.|
|Inside the Es Cendol|
|Tom Yum Noodle Soup - not as spicy as it looks.|
|Roti Canai - they never give enough curry sauce...|
|Mixed Vegetables w/ Belacan|
|Asam Laksa - my go to dish! I'm glad they started serving this with|
the proper noodles. Sometimes they skimp on the fish (as you can see here),
but if you point it out, they'll fix it.
Just like Banana Leaf, if you pay cash you get a 5% discount.
