Mamak is a popular Malaysian eatery located in Chinatown. They always have line ups outside! I didn’t get to try them on my last visit to Sydney so this time we came early to line up. The turnover rate is pretty fast though so the wait isn’t too bad.
While you wait, you can watch the chefs make roti through the window. I knew we had to order some! Read more
Tropika used to be at Aberdeen mall but now they have moved to Lansdowne mall. The new location is where the California Cafe used to be. We actually tried to go to Yah Yah Ya Ramen first but they were closed on Mondays, then we tried to go to G-Men but they were also closed…hence we ended up at Tropika since I had read a post about it by Vancity Noms.
Surprisingly, the interior was super fancy and classy looking. It did not feel like you were eating at a Malaysian restaurant at all. We totally over ordered and the old lady beside us stared at us and she was like “wow you guys are big eaters eh?”… SO awkward… =S
My friend really wanted Hot and Sour soup so we got the only size which was a medium. We did not expect it to be this big. This was enough for like 4-5 individual bowls. The soup was not too thick and more on the sour side but wasn’t that good.
