The menu for MAMAK Asian Street Food has been uploaded to their Facebook page (Thanks Paul C. for the tip!) We are looking forward to the Malaysian Coconut Kari, Nasi Goreng, and the different kari mee noodle soups!

Mamak is now unofficially open – they are conducting a “soft opening” to get their staff in the groove of things with a full grand opening coming in the next few weeks. Check out these photos we took today inside:
Thanks to our friends Evan, Tony, and Paul, we have news of a new restaurant coming to Orlando’s Mills 50 District.
Mamak Asian Street Food restaurant will be taking over the space of the Vietnamese restaurant Ha Long Bistro. “Mamak” is a Malaysian term for street food stall.
According to Wikipedia, a mamak stall usually offers different varieties of roti canai to eat and teh tarik tea, coffee, Milo, and soft drinks to drink. Most mamak stalls also serve several varieties of rice, such as nasi lemak (coconut rice) and nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice), as well as noodle dishes such as mee goreng (fried noodles). Some stalls also offer satay and Western dishes.
The theme reminds me a lot of Hawkers Asian Street Fare which also has a few Malaysian dishes like curry laksa on their menu. I hope Mamak will be able to take Malaysian cuisine even further here in Orlando.
