Mamak Village ~ Malaysian Street Food - Glebe
Woohoo! There's a new Malaysian street food joint on Glebe Point Road: Mamak Village. Yum.
[UPDATED APRIL 2013]
We're always happy to see a new Malaysian joint appear. Alison spotted Mamak Village when she was out for lunch today, we raced back for dinner the same night. Mamak Village replaces the Chinese skewer joint Mr Fire, which replaced Glebe Noodle House not so long ago.
Looks promising! The explanation of what the cuisine stands for is a nice piece of stomach friendly writing! We've always been amazed it has taken so long to get more roti joints in Sydney.

Pandan Chicken - chicken skewers in pandan leaf, $6.00. The plastic bamboo plates are a nice touch.
The pandan chicken is devine. When it's unwrapped it has some crispy bits that are incredibly tasty. There's also small bits of green herbs inside, it has been flavoured so well it really doesn't need the dipping sauce it comes with.
Roti Canai - quite a good one too, with three dipping sauces. $4 at lunch. $5 at dinner. Very happy.
Nasi Lemak - coconut rice, acar acar (delicious freshly pickle salad), chicken curry, ikan bilis (peanuts & anchovy), and sambal. $10 at lunch, $13 at dinner. Double happy.
[BACK AGAIN APRIL 2013]
Kapitan chicken - $14. Chicken curry never blows our mind but we kinda felt like it tonight. Plenty of tender chook and the sauce has some interesting spice notes. We dig.
Kampong Nasi Goreng - about $13. Fried rice with a couple of hunks of crunchy fried chicken, some slithers of tangy pickled vegetables and a little sweet sambal. Nothing earth shattering but a good pre-pub meal.
Mamak Village is at 25 Glebe Point Road. www.mamakvillage.com.
