Murni Discovery Mamak @ Aman Suria, Sunway Mas PJ
Ah Mamak Restaurant, how I miss thou! When it comes to mamak food I dare say Malaysia has the best. I cringed when I saw my plate of maggi goreng was fried with ketchup in Singapore. Seriously? Ketchup in Maggi Goreng? omg.
So I always make it a point to get myself a mamak fix whenever I return to Malaysia, even if it is a short trip. So recently (well not so recent actually), the famous Murni Mamak restaurant from SS2 had opened a branch at Aman Suria. It is a good news for frequent Murni goers because the original shop at SS2 is simply too crowded. And not to mention the hygiene is questionable too.
This photo has Murni SS2 painted all over it lol. If you are a first timer at Murni the only drink you should order is their signature Ribena Lychee juice. They are not stingy with the Ribena syrup so the taste is really ‘kao’. At the SS2 branch usually it would be served in a bottle though.
Initially I wanted to have Maggi Goreng but my friend suggested me to try their Mee Utara done with Maggi mee instead. As much as I want to fix my cravings for Maggi Goreng I took his suggestion anyway. At least two cakes of Maggi Mee were used to prepare this huge serving of Maggi Utara and it contained quite a lot of ingredients too, primarily chicken and vegetable.
Flavor wise it was not bad at all, tangily spicy with a mix of sweetness and sourness – really appetizing. If you are a fan of spicy food you could probably ask them to make the noodles really spicy by adding more chili in it.
If Ribena Lychee is the signature drink of Murni, then the Claypot Lou Shu Fan and Mee Raja are the signature food. Not the typical mamak food you would find but at Murni it’s all about Asian fusion and catering to everyone. For the portion they are serving, RM5 seems reasonable considering the amount of minced chicken given. Throw in a few prawns too.
The great food aside, what Murni Discovery really needs now is a further face lift of the shoplot and a proper signboard to make it easier to spot. The service, ease of access, parking and cleanliness for me were all aaa-oh-kay!
Highly recommended for the same great tasting food with the same price but without the dodgy, oh-I-saw-a-rat-as-big-as-cat and eating-at-the-roadside-scared-to-be-hit-by-car feeling. Which, by the way might explain exactly why I did not go back to Murni SS2 after my first visit 4 years ago.

Ayam Penyet AP, an affordable restaurant serving the delicious and addictive Indonesian cuisine called Ayam Penyet, loosely translated to smashed fried chicken. It is a perfect alternative to the already over-mushroomed kopitiam franchises. Not only the quality is getting worse, portion is getting smaller and prices are always increasing. Imagine, after I finished my cuppa

Ever since I tried Maria’s excellent Western food and cakes, I have not been able to find another restaurant that serve such high quality food at a good value they are offering. Being a family business also means that they are personally involved in choosing the best ingredients as well as the cooking. Like for

Located at the heart of PJ, SS2 is Nyonya Restaurant – a three decades old and pork free restaurant serving authentic baba nyonya cuisine since 1974. Although the current owner is the fourth, changes have been minimal and the dishes are still faithfully prepared according to the original chef’s recipes. I like to start off

To be honest, I haven’t tried a lot of Indonesian food but I can vouch my love for Ayam Penyet, this wonderful traditional dish that originates from Subaraya. Smashed fried chicken served with rice and spicy hot sambal, so simple yet so additively delicious. Not too far away from Tampines at Changi Village is Sri

Not long ago I popped into Petaling Jaya for the weekend to meet up with my friend who stays at Aman Suria. Not far away from his house (walking distance in fact) is Betty’s Midwest Kitchen, a restaurant serving American styled food specializing in Midwest cuisine ranging from soups, sandwiches, to pork chops and burgers.
