|in the heart of Sri Rampai|
We then remembered Restoran Ali Maju in Sri Rampai and headed there. We were pleased as punch to find it open, and even more pleased to find that they welcomed our camera with wide open arms. That speaks volumes to the supreme confidence that they have in their restaurant’s cleanliness, don't you think Mani?

This has got to be one of the most spacious 1Mamak restaurants anywhere in Kuala Lumpur and only Steven’s Corner Setapak (sadly closed for renovation) is larger in terms of floor space. Brendan had the (what else?) Chicken Curry with white rice while Cat tried the Fried Mackerel with a side dish of Chilied Pickled Cucumbers with her white rice. I on the other hand ordered the Chicken Chop thinking that I’d avoid carbohydrates as much as I could (though the French Fries that came with it sort of defeated the purpose).

|Brendan's delectable chicken curry|
|Cat's ordinary fried mackerel|
|my (low-carb?) chicken chop|
|they could hardly wait, so they started without me|
The verdict? Brendan absolutely loved his Chicken Curry while Cat thought her Fried Mackerel was pretty much on par with the standard Mamak fare. My Chicken Chop was also pretty average and took a pretty long to prepare, Cat and Brendan were already done eating when it was finally served. And the damage? It came to a pretty easy on the pocket RM30.80 even with a round of Coca-Cola for everyone. Would we come here again? Brendan says heck yeah!
