Restoran Mahbub @ Damansara Damai, Petaling Jaya

Restaurant Mahbub is the restaurant that dominates the Indian Muslim food scene in Damansara Damai. Being located along the main access road in and out of Damansara Damai, they operate 24 hours a day and all throughout the day, they have a steady flow of customers right from breakfast to the wee hours of the night. Besides this particular outlet in Damansara Damai, they also have another outlet in Bangsar.

Outdoor Seating Areas Are Available Too
The outlet in Bangsar has been around since the 1970's and Mahbub is very famous for their Briyani Ayam Madu and Briyani Buhara. They also have a good array of dishes for lunch but this entry is focused on the other individual dishes and I would be specifically highlighting dishes which in my opinion is the best that they have to offer. Being located in a corner unit, they have the advantage of space and by evening, you would be able to see tables also arranged along the sides of the inner road. Typical of any other Indian Muslim restaurant, the service here is quite efficient and they would usually attend to you quite fast. The only setback here is that the cleanliness is just average.

Ice Lemon Tea @ RM 1.80
Just like any other Indian Muslim restaurant, the tea here is quite good. It is decently sweetened and is slightly bold. I would rate their Ice Lemon Tea at 8/10 .Do note that generally the prices here are slightly higher than other Indian Muslim restaurants, yet, due to the consistency of food quality and portion sizes, customers are willing to pay the slight premium. 

Mutton Soup @ RM 6.00

Closer Look At The Meat Cuts
I was in a all soup mood today and wanted to try both their Mutton and Chicken Soup. To start with, I went with their Mutton Soup. I have tried their Soup here before and it was a class of it's own. I decided to try it again today to see if the taste was consistent. Once again, the soup was mind blowing and I must confess that it was the best Mutton Soup that I have had. It was made in a spicy and rich soup that was filled with spices and it was cooked with chunks of mutton along with their marrow that definitely added to the taste. Definitely a must try for Mutton Soup lovers! I would rate their soup at 9.8/10 . 

Chicken Soup @ RM 6.00

Chunks of Chicken
Their Chicken Soup was also good but not equally good. The broth was the same but when cooked with Chicken, it lacked the wow factor. Nevertheless, it was good and I would rate it at 8/10 .

Besides these dishes, their rice and curry offering during lunch is also worth a try but it is slightly on the pricey side. Perhaps during my next visit, I would try some of their other items like Mee Goreng and Rojak and post my comments on those. It is definitely worth visiting this place for their Mutton Soup!
