Kafe Otak Man & Kluang Popo's Chilli Tumbuk

Otak Man brings otak-otak made in Johor's southern town of Muar to Petaling Jaya, promising the traditional steamed spiced fish cakes in their original form, & in unexpectedly unorthodox presentations - as burgers, with pan mee or on pizzas. Fun fare.

Otak Man Cafe @ SS2 PJ
26, Jalan SS2/24 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Tues-Sun, 9am-7pm

Bonus temptation from Johor: Kluang Popo's Chilli Tumbuk, whose founders hail from Kluang town. We spotted them at Jaya One's recent weekend market & enjoyed a small sampling - a mix of cili merah & cili padi that packs a pretty enjoyable punch, appetisingly flavoured with garlic, lime, onions & vegetable oil. For orders, they can be contacted at

  1. We used to have a friend always bought us some otak-otak from Muar when he balik kampung. Haven't had that for ages after he moved to SG......

    1. CK: ooo, you can try it at otak man and see if you like it here ... they say they bring their otak-otak fresh from muar everyday :)

  2. This is one place that I MUST check out should I happen to hop over...and of course, I would grab a bottle of the cili tumbuk to try. Looks good!

    1. Suituapui: sounds like you're a fan of johor fare ... my favourite would be johor laksa, i think! :D

  3. family loves otak-otak but I've not had it as a burger or on pizzas or in pan mee! Would love to try :)

    1. Contact.ewew: it's an interesting concept ... i think i prefer my otak-otak richer and more robust, but if you're ever in ss2, this could be worth checking out to satisfy your curiosity :)

  4. Hmm....pasta with otak otak, maybe I can duplicate this at home since I like otak otak :P

    1. Choi Yen: i think you'd be able to produce a delicious otak-otak pasta :)
