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