http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/10/hajjah-mariam-cafe.htmlHajjah Mariam Cafe was recommended by my colleagues for its unqie dish - Nasi Ambeng. The dish is quite popular Javanese-Malay Cuisine seen during festive seasons and served on a tray sharing to up to 6 pax. It signifies togetherness and peace at meal times. They are located in the basement of Westgate and payment counter and serving food are of different counter. Nasi Ambeng is quite similar to nasi padang with me just that the ingredients or dishes are rather fix. It consists of a good amount of fragrant white rice for the number of pax sharing, served with meat, vegetables, fried coconut flesh, sambal goreng and other dishes. It was my first time tasting Ambeng and will never be the last. I like the way where the portion is being served in the old school metal tray that give me good memories of childhood. Portion of rice might me too much for me but I'm save by my friend who can really take the amount of rice. Coconut flesh, Ah Zhar, tampe and as well as bagedil was given in 2 parts proportionally. For the middle portion, you can choose to have the choice of beef or chicken or even both. The meat was cooked long enough and was fork tender. It was a stomach filling meal with great satisfaction. My favourite item other than the 2 meats on the plate is none other than this potato, bagedil, a must have in most of my halal meals. Nasi Ambeng is really worth a try although the price may be a step over here. continue reading
