Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock Publika Review
It is time for another food review. This is the Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock Publika review as we went there for brunch to try their famous Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng and Hainanese Chicken Chop. Last week, we visited the Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock’s new outlet in IOI City Mall Putrajaya and this week we visited their Publika outlet.
We still remember how Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock started their first outlet at Oasis Square, Ara Damansara 9 years ago. Now, they have expanded to 12 outlets around Klang Valley and they are:

2) Menara LGB, Taman Tun Dr Ismail
4) UOA Business Park, Shah Alam
5) Plaza Zurich, Bukit Damansara
6) The Sphere, Bangsar South
7) PJ 33
8) Jalan Balai Polis, Petaling Street
9) Dang Wangi
10) KL East
11) Menara Hap Seng
12) IOI City Mall, Putrajaya (newest outlet)
The Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock Publika is located at G2 66 & 67, Publika, 1, Jalan Dutamas, Solaris Dutamas. It is located opposite the Publika West Gate entrance (across the road).
Brunch during weekends at Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock Publika are usually packed so please be early to avoid the crowd.
What we like about Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock Publika is they offer outdoor area and indoor area with air conditioner. Ordering is via QR code so you don’t need to find the menu and it is contactless.
We ordered the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng, Hainanese Chicken Chop and Roti Bakar Set. Since the boys were hungry so we didn’t take the food group shot.
For starter, we ordered the roti bakar set for our boys. This comes with toasted bread with kaya and half boiled egg and a drink. We ordered the Teh Tarik for the drink.
Our boys loved toasted bread with kaya and half boiled eggs and hence they loved this very much. The toasted bread comes with generous amount of butter and kaya and the boys enjoyed this.
This is their signature Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng. Coconut rice with their famous deep fried crispy fried chicken with sambal and the usual suspects like sliced cucumber, egg, peanuts and fried anchovies.
Their fried chicken thigh is deep fried to perfection with crispy skin and tender meat. This is to die for and one bite will makes you addicted to this fried chicken.
The nasi lemak comes with hints of the coconut fragrant, sambal is sweet and not too spicy and it makes a great combination with the fried chicken.
Finally, we manage to order the Hainanese Chicken Chop. This is our first time tasting their version of Hainanese Chicken Chop.
Chicken chop is coated with batter and deep fried to crunchiness and topped with the Hainanese gravy. The gravy is sweet and sour and kids loved this as it reminds them of their favourite dish.
Our boys loved this Hainanese chicken chop that comes crispy chicken with juicy meat, the Hainanese gravy or sauce and the fries too.
The cham is combination of coffee and tea, it is not too rich and not too sweet while the Teh Tarik is not too sweet and taste is spot on. We do understand everyone preference is different on their food or drinks so please manage your expectation.
Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock Publika is a great place for families with good food. We love their menu as they offer true Malaysian food from all races and this is the real ‘muhibah’ restaurant.
On top of that, Ali, Muthu and Ah Hock also offer 3-in-1 White Coffee for white coffee lovers. It is available in 3 variants Original, Kurang Gula, and Tak Mau Gula to suit everyone’s preferences and taste!
