Steven’s Western Corner @ Damansara Uptown

by Edwan S., on Fri, April 18, 2014
Western

"Street-Western done RIGHT."

'Street Western' spots are a dime-a-dozen in the Klang Valley. Often they're just simple stalls and you can find them in food-courts, Chinese eating houses and even Mamak shops (where the 'Western' stall usually consists of a griddle and a deep-fryer). Street-western here means what Malaysians see as 'Western' food, but simpler and served from stalls. Cheap chicken chops, fish and chips and steaks form the trivecta of foods served at these places. And that is the appeal: price! A lot of people want a semblance of restaurant 'Western' fair, but at cheaper prices. And just like with any other makan place, there are good street-Westerns, and there are mediocre ones.

Steven's Western Corner at Uptown 7, Damansara Utama, is definitely one of the good ones.

The WMS Starter Kit

You don’t need to empty the entire ‘kitchen utensils’ and ‘crockery’ section of the supermarket to be able to make Western dishes at home. Often, the tools I use in the kitchen are the same things that you would use for everyday cooking.

That said, there are some things that I absolutely cannot do without in my kitchen. So here…   More »

Linguine with Pan Seared Chicken, Broccoli and Cherry Tomatoes

by Edwan S., on Tue, April 15, 2014
Western

How about a light lunch? Linguine in olive oil, garlic and chillies with a nice, juicy pan seared chicken and healthy, crunchy broccoli makes a nice, balanced meal. This is a straight-forward pasta recipe that’s light, but also filling and relatively healthy, too. You can even make it in the morning and pack it as lunch. It’s quick, cheap and pretty tasty.

Nasi Lemak @ Restoran Irshat, Bandar Sri Permaisuri

by Foodster X, on Mon, April 14, 2014 - 7:00:38 AM, 0 comment
Quickie Review
Today's Nasi Lemak Monday brings you a very 'kenyang' one in Bandar Sri Permaisuri...

If you're hangkering for a nasi lemak to start your week and happen to be in Bandar Sri Permaisuri, check out Restoran Irshat. It's a regular mamak shop, but skip the roti and go for the nasi lemak bungkus on the tables.



They're straightforward nasi lemaks, but the portion is huge. At first glance it looks like just rice and sambal, but that's just the way it is packed. Fiddle around a bit and beneath you'll find cucumbers, ikan bilis and wedge of boiled egg. The rice is tender and taste quite 'lemak', if not that fragrant. The sambal might look fierce, but is actually pretty mellow. Have the nasi lemak with a glass of teh o'. Be prepared to feel full the entire morning.

Best of all? It's only RM1.50.

Capital Nasi Dagang Kelantan

by The Charlie, on Wed, April 09, 2014

"True nasi dagang is a BEAUTIFUL thing"

True nasi dagang is a beautiful thing. Not unlike many of our beloved local dishes, it relies on a perfect confluence of flavours. The best ones are delicate yet robust, with enough oomph to power you through the day without sucking you into a black hole of a sleepy afternoon.

Until recently, there were only a few places in the Klang Valley where you could get yourself a plate of the stuff. Even then, they were usually only adequately tasty. So of course, on the 8th of June last year, KL-based Kelantanese breathed a collective sigh of relief. The owners of the famed nasi dagang stall in Kota Bharu's Capital Cafe had finally set up shop in KL!

Nasi Dagang with Gulai Ikan Tongkol

by Edwan S., on Tue, April 08, 2014
Malay

Nasi Dagang is a Kelantanese specialty. Grains of red and fragrant rice steamed with fenugreek, ginger and shallots and served with various gulais. Our take on the recipe takes a bit of time and effort, but it’s well worth it. Rich and fragrant, this makes an excellent, filling breakfast.
