Petaling Jaya: Otak-Otak & Nasi Lemak At Mapley 223 – This is a super halal post because Mapley 223 is a halal food court. Oh yeah! This place was introduced by my friend – Hock Sheng from Universiti Malaya and he told me that there’s cheap Malay-style otak-otak and also nasi lemak, so here we go!
|Mapley 223 Food Court, 223 is because it’s near to Jalan 223.|
|Me and Hock Sheng, the friend who introduced me. The friend who sat beside me in class in high school.|
Once entering the food court, don’t be shock by the stalls worker touting you asking you to eat their food. Just simply wave your hand, say no and wander to an empty table. Sit down, again, don’t be shock by the stalls worker walking towards you to ask you order their food, nasi lemak, maggi goreng, nasi goreng and more, and also the teh tarik and stuff. Don’t bother them if you know what to eat, or even don’t so that you can take some times looking around what to eat.
|Yellow and green, pick the green one.|
|Hot and fresh otak-otak.|
|Bloody red otak-otak, looks weird, but taste OK.|
We sat down and then my friend say don’t bother them. Wait for a guy drop a green basket of otak-otak, only start eating it. Just don’t bother about others. They will know how to calculate how much you have it cause they knew how many they put in initially. A very different style of otak-otak, with very sweet taste, a little bit of spices, and somehow less fish meat than those Nyonya’s style. It’s a good snack at RM0.60/otak-otak.
|This is the nasi lemak stall that we went for.|
|And it’s RM2.50 for this plate. The rice is nice.|
He also told me that nasi lemak there is also good and cheap. So yeah, the fragrance of the lemak rice is indeed good, and too the spicy hot sambal just compliment the rice well. It’s just RM2.50 for this plate of nasi lemak, you can add more side dish too!
Well, I have found a new place for snacks/supper! It’s Mapley 223.
