    Restoran SalimPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Taking a twist from the local kopitiams, the mamaks here boast a good range of roti bakar too. Take Restoran Salim for example- a mamak which roti telurs and roti boms sell more than their roti bakar, but give them toast a try and you’ll definitely be bewitched. Throw in a soft boiled egg or condensed milk to elevate the flavours too.

    Tips

    Your typical mamak feel here.

    Things to expect

    Simple and quick meals.
