We set out to look for Menu Rahmah today and landed at Ali Maju in Setapak. We were informed the choices under Menu Rahmah is served from 10am till 3pm daily.
It consists of rice, vegetables and either chicken or fish which is served together with a drink of either hot tea or iced tea.
The Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry joined hands with Muslim Restaurant Owners Association (Presma), Malaysian Indian Restaurant Owner’s Association (Prisma), Malaysian Tomyam Operators Association, Bumiputra Retailers Organisation (BRO), Malaysian Singapore Coffee Shop Proprietors General Association (MCSPGA), Malaysia Retailers Association (MRA), and Malaysia Retail Chain Association (MRCA) to bring this initiative to fruition, as reported by The Star.
Anyone can order from Menu Rahmah and enjoy the meal. As for the chicken set, there is a choice of between 3 varieties of chicken.
As for the fish set, there is no choice given, however, for the vegetables, customers can choose one from the spread of vegetables that would be served on that day.
The portion of the food served is also very satisfying and if you wish to add more rice or more portion of vegetables, then the workers are happy to oblige.
According to Akhbar Ali, a 37-year-old worker at Ali Maju, around 40 to 60 people have benefited from this initiative just yesterday alone.
Maira, 21, who is working as a dental assistant and Mareena, 25, working as a dental admin, said that this meal set is worth the price and can be very helpful during the middle and end of the month.
Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Minister Datuk Seri Salahuddin Ayub assured that this is not a one-off initiative and the cooperation between the ministry and stakeholders nationwide will be expanded, according to The Star.
