Mamak Corner is situated at Bank Street, opposite Adelaide Railway Station. It has no connection with Mamak in Sydney, apart from serving Malaysian food like Roti Paratha and Nasi Lemak. During our last visit, we ordered Nasi Lemak with Chicken Curry, Roti Canai with Chicken Curry and Roti Telur (egg) with Beef Curry. They have a meal deal of $12 which includes Nasi Lemak/Roti with curry and a drink.
The Chicken Curry had tender meat which easily fell off the bone and the curry gravy was not too spicy. It also had chunks of potato that contrasted wonderfully with the curry gravy. When it is served as part of Nasi Lemak, it is accompanied by a serving of rice that was cooked in coconut milk, roasted peanuts, cucumber slices, half of a boiled egg, chilli paste and fried ikan billis, which is the Malaysian name given to dried anchovies.
The Beef Curry also had tender meat; although my mother thought it was a bit tough for her taste. In addition to the serving of Beef Curry and Chicken Curry, the Roti Canai and Roti Telur also came with a small serving of two types of curry, one of them being a vegetable curry, and sugar to dip the pieces of roti in. The Roti Canai was crisp and fluffy and the Roti Telur was perfectly cooked with the eggs complementing the pastry perfectly.
When ordering the meal deal, the drinks that you can choose are between lemon juice with sugar syrup and a rosewater flavoured drink that included basil seeds. The basil seeds added a unique touch to the rosewater drink with its gelatinous texture while the refreshing flavour of the lemon juice complemented the spicy food perfectly.
