Mama Kim

Mama Kim Sauna Mee Cafe has an outlet in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur. The restaurant occupies a small building between Chong Hwa Primary School and Wisma Hrih Lotus. The food menu here revolves around healthy cooking. Mama Kim shares the premises with Herbaline Facial Spa, which is also under the same management.
Fish Meat Sauna Mee (鱼肉桑拿面, RM15.00) is the signature dish here. It is served sizzling hot in a preheated stone bowl. Simmered for several hours, the soup is quite rich in taste. It comes with mushroom rice noodles (other choices are pumpkin noodles or brown rice), fish slices, tofu skin (腐竹), mushrooms and vegetables. Condiments are fried garlic and sambal (chili paste).
Mama Kim also offers Vegetarian Sauna Mee (素食桑拿面, RM15.00), where fish is replaced with sweet potatoes and taro. Despite the fact that meat is not used, the soup is still pretty good. Nevertheless, I prefer the fish version if I were given a choice.
Baked Cheesy Mushroom Rice (野菌焗饭, RM13.00) uses brown rice, which is a healthier choice compared to white rice. Covered with gratinated cheese, the rice comes with assorted vegetables like broccoli, cauliflowers, carrots and potatoes. All in all, the taste is reasonably good.
As for Western dishes, Cheesy Chicken Chop (香草芝士鸡扒, RM17.00) comprises of cheese-baked chicken cutlet with enoki mushrooms, mixed vegetables, bread roll and garden salad. In terms of taste, it pales in comparison with Sauna Mee. Perhaps Western food is not the restaurant's forte.
Homemade Passion Fruit Juice (秘制百香果汁, RM11.00) is served in a glass teapot and is kept warm by a candle below. The passion fruit juice is also infused with natural sweetness of apples. The teapot is meant for up to 4 people. Hot water refills are complimentary.
In summary, the dishes at Mama Kim (especially Sauna Mee) are generally delectable. It is also evident that the restaurant places emphasis on balanced nutrition. As for people in Penang, Mama Kim has another outlet in Tanjung Tokong.
