Monday again.. so time for Nasi Lemak Monday! This week, it's off to Subang we go.. The friendly Pakcik and Makcik
Nasi Lemak Subang Jaya has been around for 30 years
or so, run by Pakcik Syafiq and Makcik Yati. Some people call the Nasi Lemak here the working man's Nasi Lemak. This is due to the generous heap of rice
Makcik and Pakcik pile up in the individual packs. It is literally a mountain. A full portion is made out of 2 huge scoops. But this is a lighter version of Nasi Lemak that has just subtle hints of coconut. Generous portions!
They have two different types of sambal. If you like it sweet but shy away from heat
, opt for the squid sambal. If you prefer more kick, choose the onion one. It's orange in colour, made up of onion slices, anchovies, chillies and tamarind. It has a lovely tangy flavour and plenty of heat
. There's also a bounty of lauks to choose from. Popular ones are the crispy fried potato slices and chilli squid. They even have quite decent paru too. Whatever you choose will go great with your rice-laden packet.

The sleepy (well, relatively) town of Temerloh is famous for masak lemak and gulai tempoyak featuring local freshwater fish. People travel from all over Malaysia to this town in Pahang to have a taste and even ‘tapau’ the dish. Why, my colleague said his parents used to bring him over to Temerloh during weekends just for lunch!
Everyday Gourmet will be on Friedchillies Food Network soon!

Nasi Lemak Monday rolls around again. Today we're taking you to Shah Alam for some honey fried chicken to go with your nasi...
18 years in this business and Kak Ayong still smiles happily as she mans the cashier of her huge restaurant.
Peace Akak Yong!
The full blown Akak Yong experience comes in when you try a) the telur goyang, slivers of egg whites with wobbly thick yolk that will just dribble down to your rice, and b) the famed ayam goreng madu. Her nasi lemak comes in healthy portions.
That chicken is begging to be nom-nom-nom-ed!
Her ayam goreng madu is to die for. It’s well marinated and fried to a crisp, and is nicely sweet-ish with succulent flesh. Prices depend on the amount of lauk you grab, but it’s within the RM4-8 range. Akak Ayong takes great care in ensuring her place is shining clean, to her customer’s comfort. Opens 10am-10pm, closes over the weekends.

"Burgers bigger than your face!"
How dedicated are you to a burger? Or rather to finding out what makes great burgers? We've heard about how some people go to extreme lengths to have the best culinary experience of their lives... but to actually do a thesis on it? That is some dedication, my friend. And that is exactly what Abu Yazid, of Yazid Burgers, is doing.
Here’s the thing: I’ve always been sceptical of themed restaurants
, especially when they seem completely out of context. So when I was recommended to head over to Stable Steakhouse, I immediately wondered why would you have a “stable” in the middle of Kampung Bharu? Because they specialise in good “western” eats? When we arrived, I was immediately taken with the amount of horse decorations filling up the restaurant.
Even the restaurant’s logo incorporated a horseshoe!
