If you are a youngster living around the Klang Valley, you would never have missed this place. For the benefit of those who do not know, Malaysia’s best hang out spot, besides our malls, are the Mamaks. Mamak means the Indian Malay Mixed community. However in plural, Mamaks, it is a sort of only-in-Malaysia charm.
In essence, these are the places where you get cheap food, good food (though possibly unhealthy), similar food in ALL mamaks, (worry not about what to order because we have the entire menu in our heads), 24 hour service, available at every corner of the country, and the best atmosphere to just sit around and, well, talk cock. That’s how Malaysians de-stress after a long, exhausting day of work/study and getting caught in massive traffic jams.
Murni’s is deemed to some as the ‘epitome’ of all mamaks. It is located in SS2, Petaling Jaya, one of the busiest places when it comes to good food. One very interesting characteristic about this place is that the place is HUGE! It occupies two separate shops, both side by side. One furnished with air-condition and the other is your usual adopt-the-Malaysian-weather’s temperature. However, due to its massive popularity, the tables and chairs available for its customers extends through the corridors of the shops. Indeed Murni’s is two shops in the entire row, its table and chairs however, are lined up right outside other shops for the entire row! When first visited by our MFD’s agents, we were indeed shocked! Even more amazing is the fact that ALL the tables and chairs are filled up!
And rightly so! Here are some pictures of the food we’ve tasted while we were there! Some of their popular food includes:
We have come to the conclusion that Murni’s is the extended Mamaks. It is by itself so unique and popular among Malaysians that google map Murni’s or Waze it, you’ll definitely find it! Here are some details to assist you:
