A Meet-up and Mamayu Nasi Kukus


Elin of  Elinluv's tidbits corner and I had a wonderful time recently meeting up with Gertrude of
My Kitchen Snippets and Sonia of  Nasi Lemak Lover.  It was my first time meeting up with Gertrude and Sonia. The venue was lunch at Madam Kwan's, MidValley.  Sonia brought us some yummy pumpkin angku kuih as dessert and Gertrude's classmate Yik Wah joined us later.  We had so much to talk about and chatted like old buddies and if not for time constraint we could have stayed on longer.

The next agenda on our list that day was a 'date' with Andy Lee, the young and enterprising co-owner of Mamayu Nasi Kukus at the Oasis Food Court of the Midvalley Megamall.


Here's a short introduction of Mamayu......

Mamayu was born into a family of cooks from Tanah Merah, Kelantan. At a very young age,  Mamayu has shown passion for cooking, often following her mother to their stall to learn the trade.  After years of cooking and guidance from her mother, she has managed to master the skill of cooking authentic Kelantanese cuisine such as their very well received Kuah Kerutuk & Gulai Kawah.  


Ayam Goreng Berempah .... crispy on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside.


Mamayu Nasi Kukus ..... with Kuah Kerutuk on the left and Gulai Kawah on the right.

Nasi Kukus is steamed rice and at RM 8.90 it comes with a whole leg of Ayam Goreng Berempah, cucumber slices, mixed vegetable and some prawn crackers...... value for money, right?  



Nasi Lemak with Ayam Goreng Berempah, fried peanuts, ikan bilis, half piece of hard boiled egg, prawn crackers, kuah sambal, cucumber slices and topped with their yummy crispy rempah.  Also priced at RM 8.90 and only RM 4.90 without the Ayam Goreng Berempah...... another value for money meal!

For breakfast they serve Rice Noodle Rolls, something like the 'Chee Cheong Fun' not flat but rolled up like a spring roll.

Do drop by Mamayu's kiosks and try out their food and I'm sure you won't be disappointed for they were good, especially their kuah and sambal, not forgetting the Ayam Goreng Berempah.

According to Andy, Mamayu Nasi Kukus has 3 branches and they are located at :-

MamaYu 1st kiosk:
Ming Tien Restaurant
Jalan Pjs 11/28a, Bandar Sunway.

MamaYu 2nd kiosk:
Restaurant Nam Yiang
Jalan Pjs 7/22, Bandar Sunway.

MamaYu 3rd kiosk:
Mid Valley Oasis Food court, lot no.10

We left Kuala Lumpur with a 'bloated' stomach, at least, myself and I had to forgo dinner as I've had far too much chicken and rice for a day.  And Gertrude and Sonia, thank you so much for your lovely gifts and it was nice meeting both of you and Yik Wah.

Gula Melaka Kuih Talam ~ 椰香打南糕

After successfully making the  Kuih Talam  with much trial and error, I ventured into trying out making this Gula Melaka Kuih Talam.  What is gula melaka one may ask?  Simply put, it's just palm sugar made from coconut palm.  The slightly saltish top coconut layer pairs very well with the dark and intense flavour of the palm sugar from the bottom layer, and this kuih can be served for breakfast or snack on at any time of the day.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
