Mamalee @ Damansara Uptown

Originally from Penang, the Khoo family brings its cooking to this casual new restaurant with a Nyonya influence - nasi lemak comes complete with fried chicken or ayam masak merah for a hearty lunch with satisfactory flavours (RM10 for a set with teh or kopi tarik), while assam laksa is endowed with a pleasantly mellow tang (RM5), complemented by chicken lobak that's both juicy & tasty (RM10), plus capably executed jiu hu char (RM10) & sambal sotong petai (RM5). Wrap up your meal with classic bubur cha cha (RM3.50). Familiar local comfort food for Damansara Uptown's workers, served with warmth that evokes home.
