Mamak Village

Seems like the Malaysian food scene in Sydney is really growing. Relatively new on the scene is Mamak Village in Glebe, which will turn one in January.

At first, we thought it was a branch of Mamak. But wait, they only have a branch in Chatswood and Glebe is too near to their main branch in Chinatown. So, this must be an entirely different one.

I ordered a signature dish of theirs, a plate of nasi lemak with chicken curry ($10.00 during lunch time).

The acar was really spicy and was the best component on the entire plate. The curry could have used a little more santan. Xin Wen had mee goreng ($13.90), which translates into wok fried yellow noodles, normally in mamak style.

She felt that it lacked the wok taste. Just like how good char kuey teow has some wok taste. I am unable to recall who ordered the plate of roti kaya ($5.50). Too hard, too little kaya.

Hm... but we all agreed that Mamak makes better rotis. Michael had dessert, too. He had a serving of sago gula melaka ($5.00).

Too sweet, even for the sweet-toothed Michael. Boey had a glass of iced More More Tea ($3.50), which essentially is just triple layered tea.

Hm, maybe we had our hopes too high, which had us leaving in a tad of a disappointment. At least, they had good service.

Unfortunately, for us it is a case of been there, done that.
