Been wanting to give this restaurant a try for ages but we were travelling quite a bit and when we actually got down to paying this eatery a visit – it was closed for renovations. Bummer! We waited it out and soon enough, barely 2 weeks ago, they were opened again. Yay!
As soon as you enter Mukha, it oozes a Moroccon vibe? The way it is designed, it kindda feels like you are at a different place for a bit.
It is evident that the owners did quite a bit of effort into making/giving the place the ability to offer its customers the Marakesh feel. That they certainly did. Yet, at the same time, it also has a homely feel to it – the kind that says ” hey, its your neighborhood cafe, come and lepak here!” Makes sense?
Chicken Scawarma, 10 ringgit
Man, this was sooooo tasty that I just had to order it twice!! And for 10 bucks each? Totally worth it!! Of course I did not eat all of em myself…. duh! I had company with me and we could not refuse it. This pita wrap came with generous filling of chicken and greens. The chicken tasted like those pieces of chicken from a really good chicken kebab. It was cooked and spiced to perfection and totally lives up to its name – Arab Spiced Chicken. It tasted soooooo good that I would gladly munch on it every single day….. yummmmm.
Chicken Gulf Rice, 12 ringgit
This was another delicious dish. It basically was made up of yellow rice with briyani sauce + Arab spiced chicken + cucumbers + fried onions. I almost alway need gravy when I am eating rice – dobt know if it is a Malaysian thing or just my thing – it just adds flavor and aides in making dry white rice a lil more soggy? Which it turn makes ot a whole lot tastefull but this was one of those that didnt need even a bit of it. The rice was warm, gooey and moist, and on top of that, filled with spices – I guess thats why gravy wasnt needed. The chicken thigh had plenty of meat on it and although both the chicken in this review – the pita bread and the rice, had the same Arab Spiced Chicken, it tasted different at both times. That being said, both the chicken were tasty and complimented its respective dishes positively. Loved it ! And for 12 ringgit ? It is another totally value for money.
Would I head here again?
Most definitely. Loved it. And oh, did I mentioned about the complimentary cupcakes I had towards the end of my meal? Yummmm…
