Promo Eats

Promo Eat 1 on Sunday (2 June 2019):

'Nasi Lemak Salted Egg Fried Chicken Whole Leg at MYR 12 nett. Many thanks to PH who mentioned this "one day (only on 2 June 2019 Sunday) promo of buy 1 get 1 free for this special nasi lemak" to commemorate Mamalee eatery (uptown) for starting to do business on Sundays. Thanks to her, the 4 of us got to enjoy this very good deal. A must try for those who love to eat "salted egg yolk any food" like me.

We also ordered a glass of hot cham (coffee mixed tea) at MYR 2.80 nett, a bowl of bubur chacha at MYR 3.80 nett, and a glass of barley lime kosong at MYR 2.70 nett but I must have eaten the word "barley" because they wrote down the order as lime kosong at MYR 2.40 nett so the latter it is for me, which I don't mind.

The goodies in the bubur cha cha - yam cubes, sweet potatoes cubes and chewy red "jellies" made from tapioca starch (predecessors to those very popular tapioca pearls boba) swimming in coconut milk sweet broth.
The bill is only MYR 33 nett with a savings of MYR 24 nett (2 plates of foc nasi lemak salted egg fried chicken leg) and another MYR 1 nett cashback when we paid using the mobile app boost.

Mamalee eatery in Uptown is now open on Sundays!

Promo Eat 2 on Saturday (1 June 2019):

We visit Gajah Mada restaurant at MyTown again for their "buy 1 get 1 free" promo before it ends on 4 June 2019 (Tue).  We wanted to order 2 plates of Seafood Pad Thai but the staff asked us to order Chicken Pad Thai instead for the 2nd plate of Pad Thai because he says two portions of the same item would be counted as 1 item for this promo. We do not mind the 2 plates of Seafood Pad Thai being considered as 1 item but we did not want to aggravate him so we took his advice. Seafood Pad Thai at MYR 15.90++ (5% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 17.65 nett) - very flavourful.

One portion of  Spiced Chicken at MYR 14.50++ (MYR 16.10 nett) but we chose to have chicken leg instead of other parts so we need to pay another MYR 1.50++ (MYR 1.66 nett) so the Spiced Chicken Whole Leg is MYR MYR 16++ (MYR 17.76 nett). The chicken is fully covered with what I believe is deep fried grated ginger which is very tasty.

Chicken Pad Thai at MYR 12.90++ (MYR 14.31 nett) which is foc due to the promo. Just as flavourful as the Seafood Pad Thai.

Foc Chicken Satay at MYR 13.90++ (MYR 15.43 nett). The pieces of chicken are tender and flavourful on the sweet side. I like the ketupat rice as it is soft with the lovely rice aroma.

The bill is only MYR 35.40 nett with a savings of MYR 29.73 nett.

  2. But PH said the rice not lemak, strong ginger taste. Satay looks good but I would love a lot more ketupat.

    1. Just treat it as normal rice, no big deal. My visit before I also did mentioned the rice won't fulfilled the high requirements of lemak lemak rice lovers but I can't eat too much lemak so it is fine as I don't even eat much rice. buy 1 free 1 is good enough. who cares about the lemak lemak which will only add unwanted calories.

  4. Both Mama Hong and you have influenced me a lot when choosing restaurants to eat. I need to look out for menu outside with good promos! It also saved me money and time from patronizing lousy eateries.

    Happy Holidays to you!
