Smokin' Salma's

Gourmet murtabak? An intriguing offer that can't be refused.

Smokin' Salma's signature murtabak is handmade, stuffed with 100 percent Aussie beef. Less greasy than most mamak versions, but not dry, thankfully. We loved how this was loaded with flavorsome minced meat, making each bite extra enjoyable.

For lighter meals, the "mini murtabaks" are equally tasty, one packed with tender lamb and the other with chicken.

Generous servings of pickled red onions, sambal & curry to accompany the murtabak.

Turnip puffs. A cross between 'pai tee' and curry puffs.

Smokin' Salma's,
Solaris Dutamas.

  2. tng: yep, a bit less sinful compared to what we can find at the warung! but yeah, it's a tiny outlet with only a few tables, so the rent shouldn't be too high. the mini-murtabaks cost nearly RM5, the large murtabak is about RM15 =)

  5. Oh dear... as good as it sounds, I'm afraid I will not touch another murtabak this lifetime again, thanks to a bout of severe food poisonining from a bad version during my childhood. I can still clearly remember those regurgitated pickled onions.... gahhhh!

  6. Min: yikes, I don't blame ya; that experience does sound quite horrid! Though maybe someday you could just nibble at some murtabak (without the onions!) and pretend it's some newfangled roti canai! :D

  7. Gourmet murtabak? Ooh, street food/mamak fare seems to be getting fancier and fancier in the capital these days. Can Qing Dynasty Char Kway Teow be far away? :P

  8. lfb: heheh, i know purists will scoff at the thought of upmarket versions of street fare, but i think the rest of us would be curious enough to wanna try, say, nasi lemak with white truffles or bak kut teh comprising spanish iberico pork :D

  9. Nasi lemak with white truffles? You think truffles would go well with santan ar? Uhm, I'd have second thoughts about it...

    BKT with any sorta babi sounds good though. Hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  10. lfb: kurang santan sikit lah! and voila, a healthier nasi lemak is produced in the process (and one that might give village park's version a run for its money perhaps?) :D

  11. Healthy nasi lemak? HEALTHY nasi lemak? Uhm, I think I will definitely give that version a skip... :P
