It's always hard with Malaysian food because we're lucky to have family and family friends who are expert cooks when it comes to Malaysian food but here we go...
Mamak still reigns for roti at the moment however if you want something else then Petaling St is a decent alternative. During this visit we tried some classics. Cheong Fan was pretty authentic, roti had good flavour but not the right texture. For the rest of the mains it was also a question of detail. Things like using the wrong parts of the ribs that aren't very meaty or having a pretty good rendang sauce but then not cutting the beef small enough to allow the flavour to penetrate the meat. Cendol a bit milky and the gula melaca had crystalised at the bottom so not very good, ice kacang was good - it'll come in handy in summer.
It seemed that the beauty (or more accurately, flavour) was only skin deep in a lot of the dishes and Petaling St would be a lot better if they paid attention to what was sitting underneath the sauce.
