Family-owned casual diner specializing in homemade Indonesian-fusion-style noodles with a selection of side dishes. Try the sweet, spicy and tangy Mee Siam ($5.90) that’s best paired with classic bee hoon (thin rice vermicelli) for soaking up the fusion of belachan, assam and salted soy beans flavours. My Makan Place offers five choices of noodle, including yellow noodle, kway teow (flat rice noodles), udon and ramen – which would make an interesting combination with Mee Siam. Or go for the rich Mee Rebus ($5.90) that features a richer-than-usual savoury sweet potato gravy.
All three Mee Siam, Mee Rebus and Mee Soto ($5.90) comes with nuggets of ngoh hiang (deep-fried five-spice seafood rolls) and battered fish fillet. The latter can be found as a side dish, together with My Makan Place’s specialty Gado Gado ($4.90) and Tahu Goreng ($3.90).
If you don’t do spice, consider the Beef Noodle Soup ($9.90) comprising of tender braised beef shortribs and beef meatballs in an aromatic beef broth. The traditional noodle option is with kway teow, but we say try pairing it with udon for something different. Drinks-wise, apart from the usual classic Bandung ($1.50) and Homemade Ice Lemon Tea ($2.90), check out the unique Homemade Pear Beauty Mix ($2.90) that’s brewed from a family recipe.
