Though Mum's Place has operated in Damansara Perdana for over 16 years, it was only when their later venture Little Mums (now closed) popped up in Uptown that more diners discovered this stalwart. This pork-free establishment also doubles as a catering whiz, feeding their fair share of Muslim customers. The Nyonya cooking at this homely restaurant is known to run on the spicier side, so gather friends who you know love a little heat! The often-lauded dish is the Otak-Otak Cubes with Thai Sauce (RM18.20), tasty cubes of melt-in-your-mouth otak-otak that's way too easy to wipe out.Tastemaker Alyssia Yu names the popular Assam Pedas Parit Jawa Jenahak (snapper, RM8.80 per 100g) an addictive result of acidity and spice, but be warned that depending on size, the fish can go up to RM80 a pop. Take her advice and clarify the price before ordering.
Avg Price: RM35
