Warung Mak Tim

Warung Mak Tim.as seen from outside

To the many people planning to go to Warong Mak Tim for the first time, after reading my posts, here is a view of Warong Mak Tim from outside, for you.

It may be best to look for the road facing it; which is Jalan AU 1A/2F. Google Maps is a bit lacking here. Waze is better.

Also note the sign says business hours are from 11 morning to probably 10 at night. The time was blanked out or painted over, possibly due to changes. Hopefully, Mak Tim's daughter Dalilah can comment/update us again.

A Rose By Any Other Name Would Taste As Sweet.

Rose Syrup With Soda at Mak Tim

At Warong Mak Tim, I ordered a carbonised rose syrup (with soda) and shaved ice after finishing my first drink of Muar iced black coffee. The rose drink wasn't fizzy enough, so I ordered another with regular ice cubes. Elizabeth thought I drink too much, when I had another drink (fruit juice) as after meal drink elsewhere. Heh.

The resident cat in the background can be seen in a standalone pic in Eli's Fb.

Ais Jagung

Ais Jagung at Mak Tim

One of Mak Tim's signature drinks is this Ais Jagung or iced corn drink. According to Elizabeth Chong, who ordered the famous concoction created by Warong Mak Tim, the drink had corn, evaporated milk and aromatic Gula Melaka (brown palm sugar syrup) in one layer and was topped up with a layer of blended or finely shaven or frothy soft ice.

The maize (jagung) is most likely canned sweet corn as those used in ABC drinks, I think. One regular reader in IG said she was hankering for the drink after finding out about the shop's new location. Must be good.

Laksa Johor

Laksa Johor

Here is another view of Johore Laksa as served on the table at Warong Mak Tim. That is before we cleared the garnishing and lifted the noodles to uncover it for photography. See earlier pic and post titled Women's Day Treat.

As legend has it, the then Johor ruler, Sultan Abu Bakar, also the first Malay ruler to visit Europe in 1866, instructed his royal chefs to use spaghetti instead of the traditional rice noodles. The royal recipe caught on.

Nasi Tomato Ayam Masak Merah at Mak Tim

I love tomato rice. At Warong Mak Tim, I ordered a plate of Nasi Tomato Ayam Masak Merah (with red cooked chicken). Not sure if it is of Johor origin but it is nice that they used long grain Basmati rice. Mak Tim also serves Nasi Beriani Gam and they most likely use the same long grain.
