“Mamak is one of my favourite places to eat. I like everything about it.
The nasi lemak is so good I could eat it everyday – the rice is coconutty and the crunchy ikan bilis (anchovies) are like the best ever salty chips and I like the cucumber but I’m not so sure about the peanuts.
It tastes good with curry. I like all Mamak’s curries especially kari ayam (curry chicken) and my favourite, kari ikan (curry fish). My dad and I always argue over which one to get so we play paper, scissors, rock to decide. I won this time.
The kari ikan sauce makes my tongue tingle and the fish is so yum but I let mum eat the okra and eggplant cause they’re ewww…
We all love the roti canai, which is like bread but taller and is crunchy and soft at the same time. My little sister and I also really enjoyed trying the chicken satay on sticks today.
At the end of lunch mum always let us get a roti pisang (banana roti) and ice-cream to share. Sort of. We only let mum and dad have a bite each and then my sister and I eat the rest.”
