Mamak Asian Street Food – Orlando, FL
Where to go for lunch? A pressing question, probably the most important one of the day, that usually arises as soon as you wake up in the morning.
Today’s lunch adventure landed us at Mamak Asian Street Food located on East Colonial Drive in the Mills 50 District. This fairly new restaurant has a casual atmosphere and the decor is minimal with just enough style. The menu offers a variety of Malaysian dishes so it was difficult to choose.
We decided to start off with the best possible drinks you can order at an Asian restaurant — Thai Iced Tea (with whipped cream of course) and Lychee. I’m pretty particular with how I like my Thai Iced Tea to taste, a Thai Iced Tea connoisseur if you will, and I definitely have to give Mamak two thumbs up!
After going through the tasty-sounding options, we ordered the Char Kway Teow. This dish had wok-fried rice noodles with shrimp, chicken, eggs, bean sprouts, and chives. The portion is better suited for one person but if you and your friends are ordering a bunch of food to share, it’s enough for everyone to get their fill.
Next, we ordered the Crispy Roast Pork served with a side of hoisin sauce, which is obviously super fattening but oh so delicious while it melts in your mouth. And if you’re anything like me, hoisin sauce tastes good with everything. Well, maybe except cereal.
We also ordered the Asian Gwa Bao in BBQ Roast Pork. It came with hoisin sauce, cucumber, lettuce, and scallion nestled in a fluffy white bao bun. So soft and light, I love the way bao buns are quick and easy to eat while still looking absolutely scrumptious!
The last thing we ordered was the Roast Duck, which was also served with hoisin sauce. I’m a huge fan of duck so I really enjoyed this tapa-sized dish.
I’m really glad we ended up at Mamak because the food was well-cooked and the service was great. We’ll definitely be back.
