What to Cook

Stif Fry Surf and Turf

by Edwan S., on Tue, September 30, 2014
Asian

Surf and turf in culinary terms refers to a dish that mixes seafood (the surf) and meat (the turf) together. The most popular kind is a steak with a lobster tail on the side. But we decided to give it an Asian twist and make a savoury and spicy stir fry with beef bacon and shrimp. The mushrooms give it a great earthiness that brings the whole dish together. Delicious!

Nasi Lemak Nayan, Lenggeng, NS

Quickie Review
Out of KL we go for this week's Nasi Lemak Monday...

Think of a sambal that you get with nasi lemak: it's almost always sambal ikan bilis or sotong, and at the furthest stretch would probably be sambal kerang (which itself is often an add on lauk rather than standard). But at Nasi Lemak Nayan, they give you... sambal ikan keli! (catfish sambal!)

From KL we went to the little town of Lenggeng near Seremban. After losing our way for a while, we asked directions. "Terus jo, lopas Pos Ofis tu masuk kanan. Nampak banyak keto parking and Cino ramai tu, tu la kodai dio," said a resident Negeri Sembilan lady. I'll translate: "Just go straight (from where we were) and turn right after the Post Office. Once you see a little shop with lots of cars parked and plenty of Chinese people, that's the place."

So we found it eventually. A small, family run business, Nasi Lemak Nayan is only open on weekend mornings. Even then the nasi lemak pretty much runs out after 9am. So come early if you want to try. The roads leading here are smooth and during early mornings are cool. Great for window down driving or motorcycling.


Classic packaging!

Take a packet of nasi lemak. It only costs RM1 per packet. The nasi lemak is freshly packed and is still steaming…  Continue reading »

Restoran Sri Paandi PJ

"Curry-induced nirvana!"

Banana leaf rice is as 'up there' as nasi lemak or char kuey teow when it comes to favourite makan-makan choices amongst Malaysians. It's easy to see why too: a heaping pile of rice, customary selection of vegetables and gravies and if you want, great side dishes of the fried or curried kind. Sri Paandi in Section 11, PJ is no different. This restaurant has been here for more than a decade and was even involved in a 'Curry War' some years back!   More »

A patty with cheese and the usual vegetables are fine and all, but every so often one might have a hankering for more unusual combinations. Peanut butter? Cornflakes? Who would've thought, right? But these three hot burger spots in the Klang Valley are all about unique toppings and flavours that work surprisingly well!

I like black buns and I cannot lie...

Of course the crazy folk at myBurgerLab would top this list. When a restaurant has 'lab' in its name, you're pretty sure to expect some off-kilter and more unusual fair. myBurgerLab is famous for their 'experiments' that ultimately end up being delicious and satisfying. Burgers topped with lychees? Peanut butter? Even watermelon! It seems that the sky is the limit when it comes to flavours at myBurgerLab. Who knows what they'll come up with next? But we betcha people will be lining up for it!
