Set along Jalan Bangsar, the rustic Makanhouse is backed with local lunch options and not just any, but the heritage-nuanced Melaka Portuguese and Kelantanese food. Run by an amicable family celebrating time-honoured recipes, the small eatery dishes out their best deals at breakfast. Look out for the brown rice paper-wrapped goods, such as the Nasi Lemak (RM5), Nasi Dagang Ikan Gulai (RM12) and the blue-tinged Nasi Kerabu with Spice-Fried Chicken (RM15). Since the shop only opens at 10am, we recommend coming in for first dibs at these ready-to-eat meals, which are all wholesome enough to pass off as lunch! On the pricier side, they also lay out a bountiful buffet-style lineup for lunch every afternoon. Featured in here is a dish that might be worth breaking the bank for: the Salted Fish Ambilla Curry (price varies).
Avg price per person: RM15
