Sydney - Mamak

This is second time that i go to Mamak (15 Goulburn Street Haymarket, Sydney). To be honest, i was disappointed with my first visit to Mamak because the service wasn't good and the food wasn't all that great either. Despite of it all, i still decided to give it a second chance after knowing that they have undergone refurbishment not too long ago. To my surprise, their service have improved enormously as the staff was polite and friendly. The food didn't take long to arrive and it was lovely as well. According to a Malaysian friend of mine, it tasted authentic and reminded her of the days she'd spent in Malaysia. We ordered a fair bit of food which left the three of us very full and satisfied.
The first dish to arrive was the Nasi Lemak which had a nice combination of fragrant coconut rice with an ensemble of sambal, peanuts, crispy anchovies, cucumber and hard-boiled egg. The Roti Canai that arrived not long after was deliciously fluffy and crispy on the outside and it comes with two types of curry dips and a spicy sambal sauce. We also ordered Roti telur bawang (roti with eggs and onions) which was nice but if i had to pick one between the two rotis, i would still go to Roti Canai - simple but tasty! Mee Goreng (Wok-tossed hokkien noodles with eggs, prawns, fish cake slices and fresh bean sprouts) was good as well and i think my friend couldn't help but eat more and more of it!

Lastly, how could we have left Mamak withouth ordering their awesome Roti Tisu? It is a tall, paper-thin and super crispy roti served with vanilla ice-cream! Truly addictive and i recommend not thinking of its calorie content while eating it =P
