Momma knows best: Mak O Mak’s nasi lemak shows up with sweetish-creamy sambal kerang that packs tender cockles, capably complementing the rice that conveys a convincing old-school fragrance (RM12). Hits the spot for nasi lemak cravings.
The spicier-than-the-norm Nyonya laksa is a surprising treasure trove of seafood; beneath the surface, expect three tiger prawns and lots of squid, all fresh and juicy, the highlight of this robustly aromatic bowl that’s both filling and uplifting (RM15).
Lemongrass herbal tea laced with Bentong ginger supplies cooling rejuvenation (RM10), while Hang Tuah-branded kopi-o promises a hot jolt of caffeine (RM5).
Buoyed by a bevy of Malay culinary classics - lontong to lempeng - this contemporary cafe will easily please every generation.
