Hajjah Mariam Cafe, Westgate
We came across this shop at Westgate (#B2-08 Westgate Shopping Mall, 3 Gateway Drive) selling nasi ambeng. It's steamed white rice topped with Javanese/Indonesian/Malay dishes which are sauce/curry rich and comes in communal dining portions for sharing.
The shop was packed pretty much to the brim and it looked like it was worth a try. The food turned out to be pretty good. Both the curries and the sambal belachan added up sending beads of perspiration down my scalp. Their sotong hitam was rich and delicious. The only thing I thought wasn't well done was the beef rendang. The gravy hadn't much of a presence and the meat was dry and a little tough.
