Restoran Gulam Maju @ Kajang, Selangor
Restoran Gulam Maju is the only Indian Muslim restaurant that is available in Bukit Mewah 9, Kajang. In fact, it is the only restaurant that is available there. The food here has been nothing great and that is why most people have only been coming for drinks.
The Restaurant At Mewah 9 Residences
Not too long ago, I blogged about the Nasi Lemak at this restaurant which I found to be reasonably good. This entry however is about another new cuisine that had been recently added. They have recently hired a Kelantanese guy in their kitchen who specialises in those South Thailand dishes like Tomyam etc. that we would usually find in those Kelantanese restaurants. Having heard about this new hire, I decided to give his food a try.
Ayam Masak Pedas
Sup Ayam (Chicken Soup)
Their Ayam Masak Pedas was pretty good and I found the portion to be huge, way more than those Kelantanese restaurants and their prices were reasonable. In fact, it would have been good for me to solely order one dish and have just that with rice. The mix of ingredients were decent and I really enjoyed this preparation. My rating for this shall be 8/10. The next dish that I tried was their Sup Ayam. This again was another dish that I quite enjoyed. In fact, I would say that it had a hint of Indian taste to it. I would not even mind having this soup alone for dinner. Again, I would rate this preparation at 8/10 as well.
Kailan Ikan Masin
Sup Tomyam Ayam
Kailan Ikan Masin was again a huge portion. I loved the generous usage of salt fish. The only thing that slacked was the freshness of the vegetable. If only that was better, then obviously it would have been a better dish. Nevertheless, taste wise I would give it 7/10. The Chicken Tomyam Soup was also pretty decent. The flavours were lovely and I enjoyed it as well. Again, another one that I would rate at 7/10.
It is great that Restoran Gulam Maju had recently hired this Kelantanese cook who does prepare some good dishes. Instead of the usual South Indian curries, we can now also have Tomyam and the other varieties under the same roof. Taste wise, I found the dishes to be reasonably good and the portions were huge. Another good option to have here.
