At this tiny restaurant, you’ll likely be greeted by its proprietors, both expats. One is an engineer-turned-chef from France, and the other hails from Australia. Mat Salleh is a fitting name for this restaurant indeed.
Joining the ranks of worthy restaurants along the Kurau street such as Bakar, 486 Baba Low and Ganga Café, Mat Salleh is a homey restaurant with a compact menu focusing on Western dishes the likes of eggs Florentine, Big English Breakfast, Bouef bourguignon (this version is served with basmathi rice), salmon soup and more. The hearty home fare is complemented by a tidy list of coffees and liqueurs, and of course, beers. If it’s a rainy evening, hit up the French onion soup.
