Feeling Penang in Jakarta

Last Friday until Sunday, I was in Malaysia and seemed that was not enough for me, so yesterday I visited Mama Malaka in Harmoni Exchange to have dinner. As always, everytime I got to eat there, I was reminded of Malaysia particularly Penang even though I have not been in Penang before.

I ordered Kiam Hoo Fried Rice, Ted ordered Mama's Asam Laksa, and we had Mama's Crispy Mushrooms.
No comment for these two, really mouthwatering

It was really crisp and its sambal was certainly too die for
So far, I have never been to Penang before, just saw them through pictures. When I heard the word 'Penang', my mind automatically remembered mural. That was exactly Mama Malaka did on their wall, brought mural ambience while customers having meal in their restaurant.

This resto was large enough, you can take your whole family to celebrate birthday, chinese new year feast, or any other celebration. I guess your chinese family would love to eat here. Basically all the foods are combination of Chinese and Melayu cuisine or we often call it 'Peranakan'.

This restaurant is fit for:

  • people who crave for serenity after noisy Jakarta
  • meet old friends
