Mum’s place has all this crazy dishes that would almost drive you nuts when looking at their very homely and localized dishes. With the very extensive choices of poultries, vegetables and seafood, I would say the dishes are real suitable for communal eating but not individual or solo eating. The mix of choices is somewhat a whirled up combination of Chinese, Malay, and Nyonya dishes. Starting with the Protugese “Devil” Curry which is not entirely devil. In contrary, it was lovely tangy spicy selling at RM 16.80.
Followed by the Fried Cencaru Fish with Chili Padi Paste and Petai, this one doesn’t have very complicated flavours. But the petai would be distinguish and outstanding along with the piquant gravy paste.
Next is the Lemak Kuning Pedas Prawn which sells at RM 29. The flavour is great with lots of spicy sensation. The prawn lack freshness so that did not quite make this dish a star that night.
This Fried Otak-otak Cubes served with Thai Sauce is a good dish for appetizer. Selling at RM 16.80, the cubes are addictively tasty with the cube size just nice for bites.
To balance off the meal with some plants, the Daun Keledek with Lime Juice, dried Shrimp and chili padi is great at RM 13.90. Very mildly spicy despite the chili padi in it and instead the lime juice enhances the dried shrimp flavour and brings out the sweetness in this dish.
Also similar to that is the Four Angle Beans with Belacan or with garlic. Also selling at RM 13.90, this could be slightly pricier given how this dish is so commonly sold everywhere else at a lower price.
And as mentioned earlier, the whirled mix of dishes comprising of many choices which happened to also include some for those who do not fancy piquant flavours. There is the Steamed Taufu with Minced Chicken (RM 13.90), “Foo Yoong” Tan (Chinese-Style Omelete)(RM 13.60), and the Steamed Egg (RM 13.60).
The Fried Honey Sotong was a little hard and tough when I tried it, and if is supposed to be as such, then I absolutely would not order this again when I return. This is priced at RM 16.80.
With a wide selection to cater for dinners, the restaurant also have sweeter dishes like the Honey chicken which would inevitably leave a smile on any child after eating this. This dish sells at RM 16.80.
For those with fond memories of authentic home cook soup, here is where you get a taste of it and would be blissful after the meal. The Lotus Root Soup with Groundnuts and Chicken Fillet sells at an affordable price of RM 14.80 per portion and every portion serves up to 4 pax.
And lastly some ice flakes of Cendol with red beans for RM 5.90. With generous amount of red beans, and rich Melaka coconut sugar hence makes this as a refreshingly sweet and great dessert after such delectable meal.
Mum’s place has got this huge space which keeps dining so pleasurable. The decors at each corner are absolutely charming and creatively exploited into partitions to create privacy for dinners. One of the rooms is filled with pictures and old memorabilia which palpably add few dashes of character to this otherwise very blandly themed colour of the restaurant.
The Mum’s restaurant is a great place to introduce the local home flavours under one roof. With the bright signage, it is easily spotted. Also, the parking bay is easily available around the restaurant.
