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.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Yam paste Mooncake ~ 2018 ~ 芋头月饼

It's that time of the year once again and there are Mooncakes galore at all the shopping malls and supermarkets.  The Mid-autumn Mooncake festival falls  on 24th September, this year.  This round, I'm sharing with you mooncakes with homemade yam paste.  Homemade yam paste is moist and sugar level can be controlled.  These mooncakes do not have a 'waiting period'  which is  ( 回油)  and can be eaten on the day they are baked.  Best to consume within four days.
