Recently I visited Jamaica Blue coffee shop at Melawati Mall in Kuala Lumpur. For the uninitiated, Melawati Mall is a new shopping mall located at Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur.
The menu offering is quite diverse and customers must place their order at the cashier counter. Then, the waitstaff will be deliver your order to you after they have finished preparing it. While the ambiance feels very much like other coffee shops, the order system is similar like Old Town café, which requires payment in advance.

During our visit, the cashier was friendly and recommended us some specials from the café. However, I was more inclined to their three cheese macaroni. Hence, I ordered that item.
Pricing for beverage is not transparent. Only a single price is shown although the beverage comes in three sizes. This has created a negative experience for consumers as they often end up paying more when they decided to go for larger cup of coffee. Creativity is more than welcomed but there is no need to reinvent the wheel. If Starbucks and many orher coffee shops can be transparent with their pricing, why can’t you?
We came here for a takeaway order. The process is smooth, with menu already put on the order counter for easy viewing. The cashier was friendly and we were given a glass of Coke while waiting. Total waiting time is just 10 minutes despite the busy lunch period.
MyKuali is a Malaysian instant noodle brand. Their Penang White curry is our favorite.
Although the price is quite expensive for an instant noodle, it is totally worth it.
Pro tip: for Penang White Curry flavor, try to cook it with less gravy. Since you are not able to eat it while it is still piping hot, do not immerse the noodle in the gravy for too long while cooking. After it softens, turn off the stove, allowing the noodle to soften even more while it is cooling down.
Murni Discovery is a small restaurant chain based in Malaysia. They have a number of outlets around Klang Valley area and one of them is in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. Check out their website here. However, there is not much information about the history of the restaurant chain or who are the people behind it.
The restaurant chain is best known for its wide selection of menus at a reasonable price (for Western Food and many other items) and mamak-like atmosphere. However, some patrons may find their pricing to be a bit expensive. Nevertheless, it still can give you great value for money.
Ordering at Murni Discovery
Ordering at Murni is easy, even for first-timers. As this is not a self-service outlet, you can expect their friendly team of waitstaff to attend to your needs. The waiters will take your order with a tablet at their hand, reducing the probability of an error occurring. Apart from that, their menu booklet is also nice to look at with pictures and price information clearly available.
Other Interesting Menu Items
Another great menu to try at their outlet is Chicken Chop. This is because with the reasonable price that you pay, you will get a generous portion of chicken chop together with several sides. Other than regular Chicken Chop, you can order Chicken Chop Special. It combines two boneless chicken pieces with cheese in between.
Our personal favorite would be Sizzling Mixed Grill. It has a combination of boneless chicken, beef as well as lamb (with bones). Do not be surprised as the Sizzling Mixed Grill, like other sizzling menu items, will arrive at your table piping hot. As you can see on the picture below, there were still a lot of smokes/vapors coming out of the pan!
Bidor Station Kopitiam is a family-friendly restaurant located in Cheras. While the location looks a bit out of place, do not underestimate what is being served there. The restaurant offers an excellent lineup of scrumptious local cuisines alongside some Western cuisines.
When we talk about Malaysian cuisines, we don’t do justice to ourselves if we fail to mention nasi lemak. A variety of nasi lemak is available at the restaurant. However, our favorite menu is mee goreng mamak, which tastes better than many other mamak restaurants.
Mee Goreng Mamak
This is avocado smoothie, one of the special beverage available for order at the restaurant.
Willy Satay is a small warong located at Sungai Ramal Food Junction, a food court in Kampung Sungai Ramal, Kajang. While it opens until late hours, it is advisable for you to reach there by 10pm.
The queue can appear to be long but keep in mind that Willy Satay has several satay lines in place and the queue moves a bit fast too! Expect your order to reach your table in relatively short time. Some reviews have said the waiting time can be long but from my recent visits I found out that I do not have to wait too long for my satay to be served.
Dine-in customers: “Reserve” your table and take its number. Place your order (and specify table number), make payment and your order will be delivered to you in about 10-20 minutes.
Take-away customers: Place your order and wait for your number to be called.
