Putik Pauh & Maistreet

Checking out a couple of Malay eateries that have opened this year at Taman Tun.

First up, Putik Pauh, which channels northeastern fare, including compulsory rice dishes. Might not be mind-blowing, but unpretentiously comforting nonetheless.

Laksam, also satisfactory. Prices are pleasing; a meal for two can come under RM20.

Not far away, Maistreet mollifies seekers of street food and shisha.

Basic fried rice, with chicken, fried egg and omelet. Stomach-stuffing, but nothing more.

Putik Pauh,
Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi, Taman Tun Dr Ismail.

Maistreet Cafe,
25, Lorong Datuk Sulaiman 7, TTDI (behind Presto supermarket).

    1. Simple Person: oooh, i remember back when i was studying at USM Penang, nearly all the hostel cafeterias served malay economy rice. i think there were only three chinese rice stalls on the entire campus. and all three were very popular :D

    1. Baby Sumo: ooh, i hope you get to taste some great laksa and rice :D i'd like to eat malay food more often, but i guess my problem is the absence of any wine served at the outlets =)

Rebecca: oh yeah, Enak at starhill, Bijan at changkat and Songket at yap kwan seng would be the wine-serving malay outlets. good for them! i think red wine and rendang are a good match, heheh =) oooh, you're right, i've been visiting taman tun fairly frequently recently. i guess it's so close using the penchala link :D

  8. Not many Malay eateries which are bright and comfy can offer a meal for 2 at under RM20. This looks like a good place to check out. I wonder if they have soto ayam?

    1. Missyblurkit: true, i think the nasi kerabu was barely RM8 (without the chicken), and the laksam might have been less than RM6 :D during lunchtime, they offer more substantial dishes, including sambal petai udang, ikan singgang, etc :D

  9. Putik Pauh...the service was bad.only had 3 people for lunch but my Nasi goreng Kampung took 20 minutes to arrive.The anchovies was old and the cucumber was bitter.The burger I ordered for my kids was plain without anything inside.the first order was wrong and they had to do it again.They charged RM 7 for 1 burger....OMG ...when I asked to speak to the manager..apparently he was eating and not to be disturbed...what poor service..nobody seems to know where the boss is and they don't seem to know the outlets telephone no. overall the place sucks...no wonder at peak lunch time there is no customers.
