Won­der­mama

Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Malaysia’s Best Casual Eats -

Won­der­mama, over­look­ing the main en­trance of Bangsar Vil­lage, adopts a ‘ so­phis­ti­cated twist to the tra­di­tional lo­cal flavours and ca­sual din­ing’ phi­los­o­phy. The flag­ship restau­rant has one of the best views in Jalan Telawi while the buzz that seeps into the airy restau­rant is elec­tri­fy­ing.

Much of the menu is in­spired by tra­di­tional, lo­cal flavours. The por­tion of the Su­per Ro­jak Buah Malaysian is just nice and it has the right mix­ture of fruits, ro­jak sauce and crisps, def­i­nitely a dish that perks up the ap­petite.

The rec­om­mended dish — Hainanese chicken chop — is cooked to a nice crisp and the sauce is a nice ac­com­pa­ni­ment. The nasi lemak salted egg chicken, an­other favourite, has all the mak­ings of a mouth-wa­ter­ing dish. The salted egg taste in the chicken is not prom­i­nent but the half-boiled salted egg in­stead of the usual boiled egg, sure makes up for it. The sambal is a per­fect blend of spicy and sweet, and com­ple­ments the fluffy and san­tan-in­fused rice to per­fec­tion.

The Durian Krep and Pisang de Goreng are def­i­nitely worth go­ing back for. Although it may be easy to get car­ried away with the dishes here, room for these two fu­sion sweet end­ings is a must. Also worth a men­tion are the smooth­ies in dif­fer­ent flavours such as Milo, mango, lemon mint and bandung Malaya.
