It Just Has To Be Delicious

If you are ever in Sydney I highly recommend a visit to Mamak. I noticed it because every night there was a huge queue of people outside, and let’s be honest if a restaurant attracts a queue then it has to be a good one. As you queue up you can watch the chefs making fresh roti, which keeps you entertained while you wait.

It’s a fairly big restaurant, cafe style, we queued for about 20 minutes before we secured a table. The food didn’t disappoint – it reminded me so much of the food that I have eaten in Malaysia.

We chose four classic dishes. The chicken satay was tender and delicious and as authentic as you will get anywhere.

The roti bawang – roti filled with onion, was fresh off the griddle and tasted delicious. It was served with two curry dips and a sambal. We also used it to mop up our main curry dish.

The nasi goreng – again a classic very well executed – Malaysain special fried rice, good enough to be eaten as a dish on it’s own.

We also had Kari Ayam – the classic Malay chicken curry with potatoes. Another well-executed, authentic, flavoursome dish.

I really really like this place and I would happily queue up again for  table. The food is relatively cheap and very tasty – well worth it. I would have liked to try a dessert roti – yes they make rotis with banana or coconut/pandan, but I was too full from the main course. Maybe next time.
