Otak Otak Place, Tropicana City Mall

While I was away for an offsite meeting in KL month back, I’ve managed to check out this place at Tropicana City Mall.  And it does have a fair share of patrons as well. It was filled with customers during lunch time when we arrived.

P1450976-1 P1450977-1 P1450979-1

The menu resembles our primary/secondary school’s exercise book. Notice how they spelt “cikgu” there.. haha…

P1450981-1   Aunty Lai Meng.. the ambassador, I think :)

P1450992-1 First up was the Mee bandung Muar @ MYR 9.90. It’s a peanut based beef broth served over mee with sliced beef, prawns and poached eggs.

P1450995-1Presentation is okay (although the illustration in the menu looked more hebat :P)… serving wise is normal, it does reminds me a little on jawa mee..


Taste is also not bad, according to Eric. And it sure does look appetizing too..

P1460005-1Next is Otak-otak fried rice @ MYR 10.90. It is nyonya-style fried rice with otak-otak , prawns and keropok. I have to say that the presentation is good, most of the food served looked very appetizing.


And according to Adrian, it is also not bad. :)

P1460015-1 I ordered Nasi lemak ayam perchik @ MYR9.90. It’s whole chicken leg marinated in spices and served with fragrant coconut rice, hard boiled eggs, and acar rampai. Besides that, it comes with basic nasi lemak condiments which are the fried ikan bilis and peanuts, cucumber slices and sambal.


I’m overall satisfied with it, presentation was okay, serving was huge and it tasted good. The chicken was tender and nicely marinated.


Ordered Otak-otak rolls @ MYR 5.50.  Otak-otak mixed with shredded carrots and wrapped in  egg-based popiah skin. Taste okay, served in the little dim sun steaming basket. Have to consume once served else it will become soggy after a while.

P1460025-1 We also ordered Otak-otak sticks (Fish) @ MYR 5.50. It is smokey-flavoured otak-otak made from tenggiri and spices, grilled in nipah leaf. This is my second time having this kind of otak otak. My first one was at some food court and it was years back. Otak-otak sticks were new to us then, we tried and it wasn’t a pleasant one. It was dry, slightly burnt and very little otak otak fillings.  So I was a little skeptical about this order.


Well, good thing it did not fail me. The pieces came out juicy and tender.

P1460030-1Both were overall okay, they have more otak-otak snacks available. Perhaps can try next time.

P1460009-1 Sarsi float, barley lemon and blackcurrent longan MYR 4.00.


Their weekdays lunch sets. Comes with main of choice, drinks and 2 otak otak sticks.


And also their weekday breakfast and tea sets.


Interiors are modern with slight touch of the past… things that brings you back down memory lane…memorabilia such as the grandfather’s bicycle… the old suitcase, flasks and tiffin carriers…..


They use the olden days concept such as the small tiled floors and old fashioned chairs…..

P1460048-1 Black boards with cute graphics and drawings…
