This experience was a rather unique one. I’ve been to an all Malay hawker stall restaurant and all Chinese hawker stall restaurant. The kind of restaurant that has several stalls within them, provides a variety of dishes …. yea, I’ve yet to come across an Indian restaurant with similar concept, untill now. Mango Tree Cafe is exactly that. It consist of all – Indian hawker stalls serving a variety of cuisine including Yong Tau Foo, Satti Sorru, Nasi Lemak, Satay, Thosai, Chapati, Mee Goreng, Nasi Goreng, Western food and etc.
Mango Tree Cafe is located less than 5 – 8 minutes away from the Sunway exit of Federal Highway. It is by the roadside, out in the open. Almost everyone here dressed comfortably – tshirt and pants. I would advise against wearing layers of clothing and makeup because you are bound to sweat. While some areas have fan, it is mostly dependant on natural air to keep us cool. If it is a windy night, great. If it isn’t, then sweat a little lah 😊
Yong Tau Foo, RM 9 + Chicken Satti Sorru, RM 10 + Chicken Kottu Roti, RM 9
The dishes ordered were tasty. Yong Tau Foo was surprisingly good. I ordered this dish because some of the reviews I found online mentioned how good it was. Yes, it was good. I ordered 7,8 fried items with the noodles and it cost me RM 9. I liked that the fried items were not coated in oil and it was crispy, crunchy and a delight to bite into. The sauce used was good and added to the appeal of the whole dish.
The Chicken Satti Sorru here is literally the cheapest I’ve come across so far. At RM 10, you’d get a proper dish served in claypot. It tasted pretty good, with 3 – 4 pieces of chicken.
The Chicken Kottu Roti, at RM 9, came served in large serving size. Good enough for two people. I kid you not. The amount served here is doubled the amount you’d get at a normal Indian restaurant, for the same price. It was tasty. A good amount of chicken to roti ratio.
Would I head back here? Yes, I would. I am looking forward to giving the Mee Goreng a try because not only did it look good, it smelled good too.
