I’ve been meaning to visit this place for ages now, and with Ms N having a hankering for some Indo goodness after a Sunday afternoon movie at ACMI, this was the perfect opportunity. Old Town Kopitiam Mamak has been blogged widely as being a place to go for roti, which I am still yet to try there, but it’s also a great option if you’re after a cheap and quick nasi campur/kandar meal.
Ms N had the stewed beef and spiced cabbage with turmeric. The beef was a little sweet, but there was more than enough rice to temper that. I chose the curry chicken and the belachan eggplant. The eggplane was great, though I would have liked a little more sauce with the chicken. All in all, solid – especially for bain-marie food – but not amazing. Still, two dishes with rice and a pappadum for $8, you can’t really complain! I’ll be back to try the roti, for sure.
