Petaling Street nasi lemak
I like my nasi lemak. This one came with chicken curry. Everything was quite salty – almost overwhelmingly so. It’s decent, but I think if I go here again I’ll order something different! Some of the fried noodle dishes looked exceptionally tasty.
Petaling Street seems pretty authentic, it looks nice and the prices are fair. Check it out!
Mamak’s roti canai is amazing. Two curry dipping sauces and a dollop of sambal with a light, fluffy roti to rip apart with your fingers and dunk. There was a hint of spice to the curries and the roti was sweet and perfect for soaking up the flavours. This is a roti not to miss, even though I’m usually against ordering entrees!
Like last week, I had to have milk tea. It’s so comforting and sugary. It’s great to have something to calm the fires if a curry happens to be too spicy, as well!
Kari Ayam and Nasi Lemak
We ordered nasi lemak with a side of curry fish. That was a great idea, although the bones were something to keep an eye on (same for the kari ayam!) I loved the crunchy fishies and the coconut rice. The chicken curry was fantastic, with cardamom pods and star anise floating around, a salty, tasty curry. These mains were great.
Pandan coconut roti
We waited a while before managing to capture the wait staff’s attention. This place is busy! We ordered the pandan and coconut roti, although there were plenty of desserts that looked tempting! This was soft, tasty and a perfect way to end the meal.
I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening feeling sluggish and full, but very content. I’m glad I got to visit Mamak! They have great food, reasonable prices and a very loyal following. Get there early, it’s usually busy around lunchtime. It opens at 11:30!
Ito’s Malaysian Hainanese chicken rice
Tucked into the underground food court at 201 Elizabeth St is Ito’s Malaysian. It’s run by the same couple who used to run To’s Malaysian Gourmet. Word is they sold that business and opened Ito’s.
The Hainanese chicken was tender and softly ginger flavoured. The rice was delicious and salty. The sambal was perfectly gingery hot and all in all it was a perfect meal. I chose the drumstick rather than breast as I like tender meat.
It cost $8.60. I’m already planning my next trip.
