As I was driving past Jalan Gasing the other day after taking away some food from Lotus Restaurant when I saw this eatery opposite the road. Apparently they have been around for more than 2 months and I’ve only noticed it now despite using this particular road daily. For some reason its name sounded just like another restaurant that use to operate in TTDI. I wonder if these are the same guys…
Another reason why I was interested in dropping by was because I like restaurants that are set up in houses? Yea, there is a certain appeal to it, dont you think? Its not like I can go in and check it out during MCO but okay to take a peep, right? 🤪
Well, since the ordering counter was located outside, I could not take a peep inside. To order, you stand at the counter, take a look at the menu, decide on what you want and someone from inside will assist you. They basically offer you Indian and Western cuisine.
Chicken Briyani, RM 12
The briyani was decent. As you can see, it was made up of briyani rice + a boiled egg + chicken. The chicken was not boneless, taste pretty good though. It was not too spicy, had a good mix of flavor, could pass off as a chicken ‘parathal’. The bummer here was that I was told that I would get some raita with the briyani but I did not receive any. Good thing the briyani rice was soft and flavored enough to be eaten on its on or else I’d be somewhat pissed 😐. That being said, this briyani is priced on the cheaper side, so for what it is, it was a pretty good meal.
Big Boy Cheesy Crispy Chicken Burger, RM 15
This burger I ordered because apparently it was a crowd favorite. If you are expecting a cafe standard in regards to this dish – it’s not it. If you like Ramly burger style + bar food standard – then you’d like this burger. I can see why this is a popular dish, it is a double stacked burger. I dont know about cheesy but it was crispy as its name suggest. The chicken patty was crunchy and meaty, somewhat sweet and with some lettuce, cheesy sauce and buns, made up the burger. With this dish, you’d also get a good portion of potato wedges on the side, about 10-15 pieces.
Mama’s Kitchen is a neighborhood restaurant, the kind that if you live in the area or regularly pass by it, is worth dropping by. I would not tell my friends who live in Puchong to drive all the way to this side of town just to give this indian restaurant a try, there are good enough and even better restaurants that serve the same food there. I however would not mind dropping by because I regularly use Jalan Gasing. Perhaps once dining in is allowed again, I’d visit. As I mentioned early on, I do like eateries that operate in a house, there always is something nice about it.
