I have been curious about Masak Masak for a long while. We don’t live close by so we never found an opportunity to visit. Then I saw on ourdeal they were advertising a pretty good deal!
The $29 deal for 2 people which included
- 6 satay sticks (either chicken, beef or mixed)
- Hotpot either seafood or beef
- A side where you can pick between
* Bok choy with xo sauce, and salted fish
* Kai-lan Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce and garlic chips
* Kow low mee (dried egg noodles) with prawn wontons
* Wok-fried rice with Chinese sausage and spring onion.
- 2 tiger beers.
Such a good deal I could not pass up! I was worried about the tiger beers since hubby is allergic to beer but they kindly answer ed on twitter you can pick other drinks for the menu pheww!
For our drinks we both ordered Teh Tarik. It was good but a bit small in the tiny mug! I believe they froth it up in a milk frother rather then the “pulled” action but it did satify our The Tarik craving.
First up we had the satay sticks. I am so nitpicky about satay sticks I only really like them when they are chared on a grill and these were charred on the grill. They were perfect and reminded me back in a time when I was sitting in run down food court in Melaka. The satay also came with compressed rice which I don’t see too often in Australia. The only thing we dislike was the sauce but the sticks didn’t need the sauce at all.
Next came the hotpot, it’s generous in the amount of seafood. The broth was spicy and gave a reminiscent of tom yum but I couldn’t figured out what the exact flavoursare . The hotpot wasn’t a winner in our books sadly.
Lastly was the kow Low Mee. I have been trying to master the art of a good KL mee at home. Restaurants just don’t make anything decent in comparison. I did quickly change my mind once we had this. It was a small portion but it was delicous. There was some white pepper sprinkle on top but when mixed it, the sauce was perfect not very heavy like how other restaurants make this. The only thing I would rather prefer is have the wontons boiled then fried. The hubbie actually prefers them fried so it’s down to personal preference. So far it’s the best KL mee I had in Melbourne so far, I heard Kitchen Inn has a good one but in a different style
On top of the deal, we ordered a dessert. We could not resist ordering the luxbite dessert they featured. The Chocolate delice with peanuts, salted caramel & passionfruit was divine. Now my only regret was sharing this with hubby I wished we ordered 1 each!
After our first time here I am glad to say I will gladly return again, I was eyeing the beef ribs all night! Service was so fast & prompt despite using a voucher. I know many people’s experiences bad service just because they had a voucher but luckily we didn’t experience it. The deal has a few days left so look for it on ourdeal.
Dear reader, do you prefer your KL mee to have fried wontons or boiled ones?
