Hot on the heels of nasi lemak burgers and nasi lemak risottos, is this newly launched Nasi Lemak Lobster in Damansara Uptown that will raise your eyebrows and send foodies hyperventilating

This heavy-duty nasi lemak dish is served by Mamalee in Uptown, PJ. The fresh lobster is cooked to order and it is served with creamy butter sauce topped with salted egg yolk bits.

It comes with a colourful mix of classic nasi lemak sides like cucumber, hard-boiled egg, and homemade sambal.

The Nasi Lemak Lobster is available on weekdays for a limited time only and if the price is a little hard to swallow for you, order the dish between 4pm to 6pm for a discount

The dish is priced at RM59 for a 400gram lobster, and RM79 for a big 600gram lobster between 11am to 3pm on weekdays. Both dishes will come with a complementary coffee or tea, and dessert to complete your meal.

If you go between 4pm to 6pm on weekdays, the price dips to RM45 for the 400gram lobster (you save RM14), and RM65 for the 600gram one, and you also get a coffee or tea, for each dish you order. No free dessert though.

You’ll have to dine-in on weekdays as the Nasi Lemak Lobster at Mamalee is not available on weekends and public holidays.

Besides the lobster dish, Mamalee also specialises in other nasi lemak and some nyonya food

Meet Mamalee’s icon, Madam Lee, who is also the recognisable face you see on the restaurant’s logo. She picked up her cooking skills from her late mother-in-law, who comes from a peranakan heritage.

Intrigued by her cooking, her youngest son Cavin, was determined to learn more about his family’s heritage cooking and discovered his hidden culinary talents. He left the advertising world after 15 years to open Mamalee, as his mother strongly believes that good food should be shared with everyone.

Their signature offerings are mostly nasi lemak based like the buttermilk salted egg fried chicken and salted egg fried chicken that are highly popular orders among the lunch crowd in Uptown

If you prefer a seafood option, go for the Nasi Lemak Buttermilk Salted Egg Yolk Calamari. You could also add RM2.50 to any nasi lemak dish to get your food wrapped Pattaya style.

There’s also a ‘secret’ menu item that’s there just for kicks - their crispy chicken rendang nasi lemak that would make MasterChef UK proud

If the whole MasterChef UK hooha made you wonder what a plate of crispy rendang would taste like, all you have to do is to pour Mamalee’s rich rendang sauce all over their signature fried chicken and you’ll really get the best of both worlds - crispy chicken with an aromatic sauce.

Don’t miss out on classic nyonya dishes that would rekindle some of your childhood memories too

Mamalee’s jiu hu char (shredded carrots, radish, with cuttlefish, chicken and mushroom) tastes exactly the one my mum used to make for me as a child. The Spicy Sotong Petai is also highly addictive.

There’s also Mamalee’s signature asam laksa dish that’s everything you want in an authentic bowl of pungent asam laksa, only available on Fridays and Saturdays

Asam laksa was voted seventh out of 50 most delicious food in the world, and rightly so. Mamalee’s version does this beautiful dish justice as it is fragrant, spicy and sour, and tastes just like it was made in Penang.
