We were recently contacted by a new cart called Mamak, who serve Southeast Asian street food. Never having been to Southeast Asia, we were looking forward to checking them out.
They’ve had a cart parked at 7 Hanover Square in FiDi for a couple of weeks. Nn Friday they brought out a 2nd cart on 21st St & 5th Ave, where we caught up with them around 2:30pm.
Mamak specializes in rendang, an Indonesian curry stew popular across Southeast Asia. They even put “Rendang Stew” under their name on the cart.
The menu inclues beef rendang for $11 and chicken or veggie for $10. We got there late, and they were out of chicken, so we ordered beef rendang for our First Look.
For a drink, we got honey calamansi lime tea for $3.
