Ever heard of Murni in SS2? Well, if you haven't, shame on you. Murni is probably the most famous mamak stall in PJ. During peak hours (8pm-12am), tables could be seen being placed out on the pathway of at least 10 shop lots to the right and left of Murni's actual shop lot. Anyway, William's as the name entails, is a mamak/western food place own by the brother of Murni.
Williams is situated behind the old Lim Kok Weng building. My mother would classify it as one of those road side stalls that looks dirty, dusty and any other horrible adjectives she can think of. Anyway, from the looks of how dodgy and dirty looking William's is, I doubt I would even bother to eat there if I wasn't introduced to this place by a friend quite some time back. Parking shouldn't be a problem here.
The food are pricier than Murni's. They share a few similarities though eg: Ribena Longan, Mi Raja, Roti Hawaii etc. As to which place serves better food, it is subjective. Some people argue Murni's is better, some people choose Williams. I personally feel that William's serves better food.
The portion at William's are extremely big. Some of their dishes could easily feed 2 people.
Each of the ice blended drinks are RM4. I actually ordered Ice Blended Banana and Passion Fruit (this drink can only be found at William's), but the waiter somehow brought me the wrong order. Being the nice person I am, I chose not to make him redo my drink. The Ice Blended Strawberry and Passion Fruit tasted too sweet and syrupy. I'll still prefer the banana and passion fruit over this. The mango ice blended was alright.
The meatball carbonara came with a good deal of beef bacon and beef balls. The beef balls were stuffed with Mozzarella cheese in the middle, giving it that nice, gooey texture when sinking your teeth into. The carbonara sauce however, wasn't anything special. The plate of pasta was priced at RM20.
I still can't really tell what the 3 H stands for. All I gathered was Ham. Anyway, the burger came with two large slabs of beef patty, ham and cheese with a side of mashed potatoes. The burger bread of stuffed with lots of planta margarin (that contains loads of trans fatty acid which can lead to cardiovascular diseases). As for the taste, it was alright. The burger was RM25.
We also ordered a plate of fried Calamari to share. Calamari is actually a type of squid and does not mean fried squid which people tend to confuse themselves with. Although extremely unhealthy and oily, I always liked their fried Calamari at William's. That plate was RM15.
Other popular dishes at William's are the various types of Naan, Beef ribs, Steak, soft-shelled crab fried rice, pastas cooked either with tomatoes, cream sauce or Aglio Olio.
All in all, if you're looking for relatively cheap Western food that comes in extremely big portions, or you're looking for a nice place to hang out, head over to William's. William's is an extremely cool and funny guy. I especially like his inverted Mc Donald's logo shirt that shows a 'W' instead of M.
