Review: I'm Chef Cafe, Taman OUG

>> Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Ah, time flies! I've been so caught up with work, house-moving & CNY that this poor blog has been abandoned for more than a month *cries*

To revive my blog, allow me to introduce to you to a pocket-friendly cafe that's located at OUG Garden. I'm Chef 我是煮人 is a humble cafe located on a relatively new grey-colored building behind Shell petrol station (near myBurger Lab). This cafe aims to serve Penang-style food with a home-cooked-food feeling, where all the dishes are specially prepared by the restaurant owner's mother from Penang, whom we refer to as "Miao Ma".

Simple cafe with seats available inside & outside
The cafe's concept is very simple, straight to the point with nothing fanciful. One may mistake it as a cafeteria, but it's actually more comfortable than a cafeteria yet not as fanciful as our usual coffee joints/cafe.

Some of the dishes that we reviewed are as below:

Penang Lobak (RM5.00/serving)
This Penang lobak is not available at all times; only when Miao Ma gets the lobak itself personally, fresh from Penang. It's pretty tasty & serves as a good appetizer/snack. Firm, fragrant, tasty meat 'rolls'. Noms!

Penang Rojak (RM5.00/serving)
Fresh fruits, vegetables & crispies with fragrant home-recipe rojak paste. Another good snack/appetizer.

Penang Hokkien-Fried Mee (RM7.90/serving)
It's been a long time since I had this dish. The best part of this very homey-tasting fried noodles was the home-made sambal! SO GOOD - fragrant, "seductive" - makes you want more although it's very spicy!

Penang Mamak Mee (RM7.90/serving)
Maio Ma fries this mamak mee as well, but I felt that her version was slightly too wet for my liking. I prefer dry, fried mamak mee. This version was slightly sweeter as well.

Aunty Chicken Chop (RM12.90/serving)
I actually found the sauce for this chicken chop very interesting & different (a good different). It had a VERY familiar 'breakfast taste'...and we found out that there's actually blended baked beans in the sauce! Very interesting. I'm not a huge fan of baked beans, but this was good with the crispy & juicy deep-fried chicken thigh :D

Three Taste Fish w/ Rice (RM8.90/serving)
This is a good portion for lunch/dinner. A generous serving of fried dory fish fillet, 1 fried egg + a bowl of rice for RM8.90. The sauce for the fish is Miao Ma's own home-made recipe as well. She revealed that she mixed onions, garlic, soya sauce, cap Arnab chili sauce, & lime (kat zhai) juice as well. Very appetizing.

Eight Treasure Drink RM2.00/cup (Hot), RM2.30/cup (Cold)
We concluded the review with her recommended Eight Treasure Drink (Pat Poh Leong Cha). To me, such drinks can't go wrong ;)

If you're working/studying/living around the area, this is a good option to a satisfying economical meal. Miao Ma is more than happy to share her love for cooking with you!
