Outta-the-world mee mamak!@Bangkok Lane, Penang

image

Of the many years I came to work in Penang, I was surprised I never came to meet this awesomeness until that one fine hot week day. After meeting with some customers, just that one hour window frame before the dinner event, my colleague brought me here for early dinner.

The shop seemed really normal looking, but I saw the chef frying away fueled with passion, I knew I was in for something outta dis world.

He whipped up an awesome plate of mee mamak, one of the trademark dishes here. The dishes are all halal dishes as the chefs are Indian Muslims. Looked pretty normal dish from the photo eh? But omgosh, the bursting forth of flavours : spicy chilli, sweetened tomatoes, charcoal infused smokeyness , the sauce coated each strand of noodle evenly that every slurp was explosive.

By far, the best mee mamak I had ever tasted. The gluttony in me wanted a second plate order, but we were running out of time. Ohmo!

The other trademark dish here was the mee rebus. This time the sauce, dense, creamy, spicy, tumeric, saffron, chilli filled sauce soaked the noodles. Squid slices were added along to accompany the tofus and eggs. We began with a fiery frying start and ended it with a slurpicilious finish!

I thought the mee mamak was awesome, the mee rebus was equally awesome. *Face palm* we dug out the golden strips of noodles hidden beneath the bubbling hot gravy unraveling the beauty of this dish, blowing our minds as they enter into our mouths.

Be warned: one spoonful, and you would become unstoppable. all sin and guilt of calories, fat fright and stuffs got to be tossed outta the window of your mind.

If only we had more time, urgh.

Bangkok Lane mee mamak and mee rebus. You struck my heart like Mr Cupid and his arrow of love. I’ll be back for you soon!

Waffled in between chicken patty yummyness!@Velocity .Coffee. Bicycle Cafe, Ampang

This new found retreat after stressful visits at the nearby hospital proved to be really useful!

Hidden within the compound of a large building hosting a car shop and gym, is a pro-bike shop/cafe. The vibes that I get from this cafe is a chill out/catchup place for bike enthusiasts over a lovely meal, perhaps after an adventurous ride convoy.

I actually liked the ambience even though I am no pro biker. I think the owners did a good job in ensuring the balance wasn’t tipped over too much until non-bikers feel uncomfortable eating here.

The food quality in my opinion was also pretty good! For a change, I decided to have my waffles served without ice cream, maple syrup or butter. Instead, these butter crunchy goodies were sandwiched with a tenderlicious chicken patty with vegs and mustard.

I appreciated their efforts in ensuring good quality food was served. At least for my waffles, I felt the sincerity of the chef from my meal. The waffles were crunchy, the patty was tender, yet filled with flavours, and the vegs were fresh too. At least the mustard wasn’t directly from the tube itself from its texture and colour, showed that the chef made his/her own dressings also.

And another key factor was also the pleasant approach of all their staffs. Greeted us with smiles from the moment we entered, until we left. I think this is essential in every F&B place.

The meal cost RM 20 plus, which was alright for me for such ambience and quality. I couldn’t finish all either way and took the second half of the piece home for dinner. Whee! Dinner meal covered!

Definitely wanna pay this place a visit again when I’m nearby here some time soon in the future!
