The coconut jumbo prawns at Mamak Malaysian in Chinatown’s Dun Huang Plaza is the “don’t miss” entrée at this stylishly decorated and spacious restaurant. Eight enormous shrimp are perfectly fried and coated with aromatic toasted coconut, then arranged in a crown around a mound of fried noodles. The dish smells like a cookie, or maybe a Zagnut candy bar; the juicy shrimp and the crispy coating taste amazing together. Mamak is also popular for its noodle dishes, salads, and exotic appetizers.
