Murni has been around in the Klang Valley for so long that it has become part of the fabric of life for many. It started out as just one outlet in SS2, PJ but has now spread to several parts of the Klang Valley. Murni now has about 10 branches outside of SS2 and they’re all called Murni Discovery.
Murni is one place where you can really feel the Malaysian ‘muhibbah’ spirit. There’s an eclectic mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and Western cuisine here to suit any mood and condition. It’s such a great place to hang out because if its casual, laidback vibe and large servings. Did I mention the serving portions? They’re seriously huge.
So when you get your menu ( which at the Bukit Jalil branch, was falling apart) you’ll notice that the first few pages are naan and roti, and other Tandoori stuff. There’s the usual mamak favourite of roti telur, but you’ll want to bring it up a notch and order the Roti Hawaii with minced chicken, sausages, egg, cheese and pineapples with a mayo topping. Other equally attractive creations include the Roti Beckham, Naan Bombay and Nasi Lemak Murni Discovery with its sambal petai and sambal squids and prawns.
For those wanting some western meals, Murni has several types of pasta including Marinara, Carbonara, Bolognese, Arrabiata and Aglio Olio which can be served with chicken chop, meatballs, lamb chop, beef steak, fish&chips or salmon. You can always choose to have them separately too if having them together sounds overwhelming.
One of the noodles dishes unique to Murni eateries is their Mee Raja, literally translated as ‘King’s Noodles’. These springy egg noodles are fried with a myriad of meat and seafood, plus you can get the tom yam version too.
One thing about the menu is that you can get basic mamak food too, and the hubby was in the mood for just that when we visited. I usually come here at least three to four times a month because it’s so near home. This time hubby ordered their Indomee double. Fuss free, simple comfort food right out from your college dorm years, with a wiggly sunny side up on top.
I was in the mood for rice and ordered the chicken chop fried rice. A warning for small eaters, their portions can be a bit big. Apart from just rice and chicken chop, the platter included some fries and fish crackers, as well as some sauce for the chicken chop.
Their nasi goreng list is pretty impressive, and it includes things like Nasi Goreng Tomyam Seafood and Nasi Goreng Meletup (extra spicy!).
Their drinks section is no less varied, with juices, ice blends, mamak favourites and non-alcoholic cocktails. All of which come in regular or jumbo sizes. One of my favorite drinks here is the Monkey Favourite Special ( it has bananas) and a blended drink called Korea (milky malt drink with plenty of nestum on top).
Murni Discovery literally lives up to its name, which means you go on an adventure of discovery every time you order something on its extensive menu. There are still many things not mentioned here on this article which you can try. It’s family friendly, it’s young people friendly; but most of all, it’s completely Malaysian-friendly.
