Thank you so much for the rating. Liked what you read? Like or share it to your friends!Surrounded by sky scrapers, this single-storey outlet stands its ground in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city. Serving traditional Malay dishes with sides of satay and kuih, their specialty is the Ayam Masak Merah – cooked to order with a blend of tomato base, chili and spices in a thick gravy to slather over your choice of rice. Be it nasi pandan or nasi kerabu, the Ayam Masak Merah easily complements any selection on the menu. It’s not common for locals to want to spend extra on everyday fare which can be easily found at a bargain in a warung or home-cooked in mom’s kitchen; but Songket Restaurant is an exception as the quality of their dishes and the authenticity of the flavours override any qualms. An award-winning restaurant, it is the perfect place if you have guests who would like to experience a true Malaysian feast.More info

ChawanThere is no missing out on Chawan’s famous Nasi Tomato with Ayam Masak Merah. The dish is an all-day serving with dhalca as a condiment. The chicken is cooked in a deep red sauce made from chili and tomatoes with the quintessential spices that give it its distinguished flavour. The rice is a bright amber colour from the ingredients cooked together such as tomato paste, onions and ghee. This palatable dish is perfected with the crunch from crispy deep-fried papadoms. Serving the best dishes that Malaysian cuisine has to offer, their menu ranges from light snacks to substantial mains and sweet desserts. Chawan currently has three outlets in Kuala Lumpur and one in Ara Damansara.More info

Word spread and soon enough they decided to launch a restaurant. Their ultimate dish to try is the briyani rice with Ayam Masak Merah. The chicken is cooked in the typical Masak Merah style with the addition of coconut cream and fresh herbs for its distinctively rich and flavoursome gravy. Raisins and cashew nuts dot the bright auburn tones of the briyani rice, drawing a fine balance of sweet and savory. Accompanied by vibrant fruit acar (pickled stone-fruits) and dhalca gravy, it is nothing like other briyani rice you have had before. Being in the business for over 20 years, the duo has developed more dishes to intensify the Johorian food experience and to spread the southerly love across 17 outlets in the Klang Valley.More info

Like or share it to your friends!An old-fashioned, Malaysian street-style dining experience, this briyani rice stall only operates on Fridays (it is believed that Fridays offer more fortunes, rewards and intrinsic benefits to oneself). Located directly opposite the CIMB bank at Chan Sow Lin, their Ayam Masak Merah definitely manages to pack a punch with its deceptively simple tomato-based sauce devilishly enriched with pounded chili paste and a majestic blend of Indian spices. Served alongside a plate of fragrant basmathi briyani rice and pickled vegetables, it’s no wonder patrons around the area literally worship this humble food stand. All the better to look forward to Fridays!More info

Thank you so much for the rating. Liked what you read? Like or share it to your friends!Kak Taim is the name of the owner of this mobile stall which has never relocated as she aims to cater to the people in the area. Providing only take-away service or as we Malaysians call it bungkus, this roadside food vendor has been operating over eight years and is renowned for its superb Nasi Tomato and selection of Malay dishes. Like a flower crowning the dish, the Ayam Masak Merah is a perfect pairing, with large caramelized onion rings, green peas and julienned spring onions adding contrast to the rich red gravy beneath. The meat is cooked tender and seasoned with a robust flavour from the spice mix including cardamom, cinnamon and star anise. A perfect balance of hot and spicy emanates from the blanched dried chilies blended to a paste, while the pleasant tang from canned tomato paste gives the dish its distinct identity. When served together with the fragrant and fluffy Nasi Tomato, you know it’s worth the travel to seek this alley despite the lunch hour traffic and the beeline.More info

This year, they will be serving a Ramadhan Iftar Special until the middle of July. Their reputable Ayam Masak Merah is served together with 12 other dishes. However it is this dish which has been voted as the most favourite dish among customers as it complements scented briyani rice and a mix of curry gravy. The poultry is first fried to give it that crisp exterior while the sauce is made from a blend of chili, tomato paste and selected spices to give that audacious bang diners normally anticipate. With an interior cheerfully decorated in batik prints and twinkling lights, this Ayam Masak Merah will make you feel like you’re back in your kampung.More info

Thank you so much for the rating. Liked what you read? Like or share it to your friends!The perfect energy fix in the morning, noon or night, the restaurant has established a reputation for its nasi lemak and currently operates six outlets around Kuala Lumpur. This popular meal is served with a choice of eight dishes including the much-coveted Ayam Masak Merah. The slight sweet taste of the sambal helps to balance the heat from the chilies while the addition of belacan aid in bringing out a subtle savoury taste. Blending amicably with the fragrance of pandan from Sri Menanti rice and garnished with refreshing cucumber slices, crispy fried anchovies and roasted peanuts, it’s no surprise that the restaurant is always packed.More info

Thank you so much for the rating. Liked what you read? Like or share it to your friends!A dialect of Urdu origin, the word ‘mahbub’ directly translated means ‘dearly beloved’, and oh how dearly it is to the loyal customers this beloved restaurant is. Unlike any other typical mamak shop, the restaurant has gained a following from all over the Klang Valley since the 70’s. Famous for the Nasi Briyani Ayam Merah Bermadu (Honey glazed chili chicken briyani rice) served with pickled cucumbers and turmeric dhalca gravy. The basmathi rice is cooked to a perfect fluff and lightly spiced with several classic Indian seasonings and onions. The Ayam Merah Bermadu starts off with a dip in a seasoned batter which is then deep-fried. It is then slathered with a chili based gravy that is balanced with oodles of honey and more Indian spices. Be ready for a sticky situation as it is only satisfactory to dig in with your hands! Some say bungkus or take-away is the way to go as the gravy is well infused in the rice during the journey home (or maybe it’s just the comfort of your own home). Over the years, the restaurant has expanded their menu and serves more Indian dishes to complement their briyani rice. Other food served are rojak and all kinds of roti for the breakfast and supper crowd. A second outlet is available in Damansara Damai.More info
