{Eating Out} Chillipadi Mamak Kopitiam

I’ve been wanting to try Chillipadi Mamak Kopitiam for quite some time now, but it was quite out of the way for someone on the east side to check out on a whim. So I asked a fellow food blogger and and her family (hubby + two kids aged 1 and 5) to join me for a Malaysian lunch feast.

Mamak Kopitiam is a concept store with an emphasis on Malaysian Indigenous Malay + Indian + Chinese food. The atmosphere was light and bright, despite the weather outside being cold and grey.

We started off with some drinks…. and by some drinks, I mean we ordered more drinks than people!

Teh Tarik – $3.50

Pulled tea with condensed milk (hot)

Ribena Lychee – $3.50

Ribena with lychee

Milo Dinosaur – $4.00

Milo iced with extra milo powder

Milo Godzilla – $4.50

Milo iced with ice-cream

We ordered so much food, we should have worn stretchy pants to accommodate our slowly expanding bellies.

Char Kway Teow – $10.90

Wok breath fried keow teow, fish cake slices, egg, chives, shallots, chilli

We got ours with the first option of prawns and pipis (lala). You can alternatively get it with mixed vegetables or king prawns, scallops, prawns and pipis.

It had a great flavour to it, and I loved the addition of pipis.

Char Hor Fun – $10.90

Wok breath hor fun and bee hoon (vermicelli) noodles, silky velvet egg sauce

We got ours with beef slices. You can alternatively get it with mixed vegetables or king prawns, scallops, prawns and pipis, just like the Char Kway Teow.

Goes perfectly with the pickled chilli that comes with it. Plenty of gravy to help slurp up the noodles.

Curry Laksa – $9.90

Hokkien noodle, bee hoon, bean sprouts, tofu, fish cake slices, with spiced coconut broth

We went with the chicken option, rather than the seafood one. The addition on cucumber on top which I’ve not had before added a refreshing element, and helped sooth the mouth with the spiciness of the broth.

Nasi Goreng Kampung – $10.90

Malaysian spicy fried rice with satay chicken, ikan billis, peanuts, egg

The rice was cooked perfectly. One of our little diners commented the satay sauce was a bit spicy, but she kept on eating it. 

Hainanese Chicken – Whole – $20.00

Poached chicken with chilli sauce, ginger

My favourite chicken dish did not disappoint. The flavours were bang on, and served with chicken rice, everyone was loving this dish.

Rotian – $8.00

Aka; Roti Rueben, Chillipadi’s infamous roti wrap egg omelette, minced chicken with mayo, chilli sauce

Delicious mix of flavours, but it’s the tang of the mayonnaise that really makes this dish work. If I had known about this dish years ago, I’d be much fatter by now 😛 

Pulut Hitam with Ice-Cream – $6.00

A sweet treat to end the feast; black rice pudding with coconut milk and palm sugar. Delicious, delicious, delicious!! Need to learn to make this at home. 

I can highly recommend you check out Chillipadi Mamak Kopitiam. The prices are more than reasonable, the food was fantastic, and the service was outstanding. The waiter paid special attention to our little diners, bringing colouring books, and special plates and cutlery.

Children dine free Monday & Tuesday too, so extra incentive for you to go if you have little ones.

Chillipadi Mamak Kopitiam is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

    :O!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL of those dishes look amazing, and the drinks…. Wow! Milo drinks!? Love it 😀 I had milo icecream at a pan-Asian restaurant last night! This place is totally out of the way for me, but I am definately going to have to drag my partner here for the Char Kway Teow, Curry Laksa, and Hainanese Chicken (hoping it comes in a smaller serve?)! Thanks for this post 😀

      Don’t worry Bianca, this place was completely on the other side of town for me too, but worth it!!

        Oh, Shellie! I just realised we will be passing by this on our way home next Sunday! :O We currently live in Ballarat and visit Melbourne every fortnight or so, and our route back home takes us up Flemington Road to Citylink, but we must make a minor detour and stop off here on the way. Words cannot express my excitement right now! 😉
