To be frank with you, there is nothing more fun than watching a game of football with friends at a mamak! And it is even more awesome when the place where you watch the match has everything – the best food, drink, service, strategic location and a lively atmosphere. And that place is Safiz Corner.

Psstt… They also have the best Tandoori chicken and a variety of shisha flavours in the evenings. What a combination that is!

To Cure hangover – Restoran Bestari, Solaris Mont Kiara

Have you looked high and low for a place to nurse a hangover? Restoran Bestari at Solaris, Mont Kiara is the best place to hang out after a long night out! Not only because it operates 24 hours a day but also because the place is very quiet and calming compared to the other mamaks in the area. Who wants din at 8 in the morning am I right?

Best Teh Tarik – Nasi Kandar Pelita, Desa Sri Hartamas

If Malaysia ever had a national drink, it has to be the teh tarik. For the best pulled tea, Nasi Kandar Pelita in Desa Sri Hartamas is the place to go. The tea is masterfully stretched by a trained tea-maker who ensures that not only the powder proportions are just right, but the ratio of tea and foam as well. Makes one salivate just thinking about it!

Best Indomie Goreng – Restoran Bestari, Desa Sri Hartamas

It’s undeniable the charm Indomie Goreng has on the younger generation. For the best Indomie Goreng in town, head straight to Bestari Restaurant in Desa Sri Hartamas. Why, you ask? Imagine a perfectly-fried plate of Indomie noodles topped with fried egg and not just any minced beef but minced beef burger patty. Now’s that’s an Indomie Goreng Burger.

Mahkota Curry House is a standout in our list because it’s not a mamak at all! However, the eatery offers an assortment of dishes similar to a nasi kandar establishments and delicious curries that rival those of the mamaks around, the best being the fish curry. But don’t just listen to us on this; try a combination of everything!

Let’s be honest, have you ever heard of anyone not liking roti tisu? JMT Restoran Maju has the best roti tisu to dig into. And don’t be surprised either that you can just about order anything from the menu just using a phone! YES, they take their order via the internet too. It makes JMT Restaurant Maju not the same as other mamak because it’s way COOLER. And definitely very Maju.

Best Cheese Naan – Restoran Rahman Heritage, Solaris Mont Kiara

If you call yourself a Malaysian, you would have definitely heard of the naan bread. For the best cheese naan, the place to be is at Restoran Rahman Heritage. Their naan cheese bread is soft in its texture with cheese ‘meleleh’ and served – almost, in the speed of light. Order the Roti Naan Cheese Special – you’ll thank us later.
