Here are some must-try food:

Roti Prata - Alif Restaurant’s roti prata is a must-try. Their prata is well-toasted and crispy, allowing you to taste the freshness with every bite. Paired with the thick and spicy fish curry that leaves a tanginess on your tongue, Alif’s roti prata is definitely to die for!

Mee Soto - With a flavourful broth and a mix of fresh ingredients such as bean sprouts, shredded chicken slices and cilantro, you’ll be left wishing for more at the end of your meal!

Teh Tarik - At Alif Restaurant, no meal is complete without their teh tarik (‘pulled tea’). Order a teh tarik and watch as they expertly pull the tea to create the hot, frothy drink that we have all come to know and love.

Did You Know?

Teh tarik is frequently known as mamak concoction, which is associated to its Indian-Muslim origins. Mamak or mama is a Tamil word that means “uncle”, or usually the locals use it to refer to an Indian.

Just Tarik!
