  1. I’m pretty sure ‘O’s mean substituting condense milk with sugar, and ‘C’s mean substituting condense milk with evaporated milk and sugar. I think we usually use the term ‘kosong’ to indicate that we don’t want sugar.

    • Hi SK!

      Thanks for visiting our site and voicing that out ๐Ÿ™‚ Appreciate it very much! Yes your point is right. We wanted to share that teh tarik itself usually contains condensed milk that consists of added sugar. Thus the “o” technically omits those extra sugars. We’ll eat more broccoli to keep our brain clearer in the future! Keep such feedback coming! Thanks!

  2. duuuuude thats like, all the reason why we’d go to mamak :p
    certainly more healthy but its like a “watered” version of mamak

    • Hi there! Haha yes! Mamak is like our pride in Malaysia! Key is to have balance. If someone frequents the mamak often, and picks on the less healthier options every time, tak boleh lah haha. Health is king! Hope these tips can help especially for those who always visit the mamak! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. i remember the days when i could bring my own egg from home, and mamak would add to my mee goreng ~ i live in Australia now for nearly 30yrs.. so no more Mamak ๐Ÿ™

  4. Just reading your tips reduced me to another mamak craving. I now live in Sydney Australia and altho there are Msian foods here..where got the same as mamak in KL. Aiyohhhh gotta go home soon ๐Ÿ™
