Restaurant review: Mamak

Can you pinpoint the moment when you decided you wanted to start a blog?
For myself, it would have been the umpteenth time I was visiting Mamak and I felt like shouting out to the world “Mamak! Have you tried Mamak?! You must try eating there a least once”

How else to do a shout out but start a blog or food Instagram account?
So here I am finally about to share my love of Mamak with you

Mamak has a few Sydney locations and they are all busy so expect to queue outside for a little while. I visited the Mamak in Chatswood.

The food is affordable and fast and always freshly cooked. In fact while you are queuing up you can see your rotis being made.

So let me introduce you to one of the loves of my life:

Mamak Roti Canai

That cute fluffy thing is a roti. The Mamak rotis are the perfect bites of savoury deviousness. I could happily eat them on my own, however  I always order the roti canai comes with two curry dips (similar to dhaal) and a spicy sambal sauce on the side.

The teh tarik is another favourite of mine. It is a Malaysian style sweetened frothy tea and makes for a delicious afternoon treat. I also love the generous serving sizes of the mugs.

My usual at Mamak is to order the Nasi Lemak. It has fragrant coconut rice, sambal, curry dip, anchovies, egg and your choice of curry. The one pictured below is a Nasi Lemak with chicken.

I am yet to yet to try any of the dessert items including the icecream roti as I am always too stuffed after main meals.

The service has always been fast, friendly and accurate. It’s not really the kind of place you can stay seated for a while after eating as it is very fast paced with customers always lining up outside the door during meal times.

The restaurant I visited was 1-5 Railway St, Chatswood.
