Monday has rolled around so it's time for Nasi Lemak Monday, folks. This week, pay a visit to Kak Hani at Uptown Damansara. Her nasi lemak is goooood...
There's Kak Hani packing the good stuff..
With Nasi Lemak Kak Hani in Damansara Uptown, the pulling factor is her ayam masak merah
. Along with the usual tones of tanginess and sweetness that comes from chilli and tomato sauce, Kak Hani adds kaffir lime leaves to the dish to give it a fragrant kick. The rice has a smidgen of coconut flavour, light and fluffy. The portion of rice is quite big
, your tummy will be full after just one packet. Her sambal is pretty mellow with a low level of heat so it's ideal for wussy tongues that can't handle too much chilli in the morning. It has a sticky ( almost oily ) consistency that makes it perfect mixed into the subtly flavoured rice.
Dig in, and forget about lunch!
Kak Hani has been operating in Damansara Uptown for the past 8 years. She opens as early as 6.45 am and finishes at about 10 am. The nasi lemak is so good, her husband, Abang Ramli, has set up another nasi lemak stall on another location in Uptown!

Burgers, burgers, burgers. Who doesn't love a burger? No one, that's who!
Anyway, pretty soon Friedchillies will be organizing a major event for all burger lovers out there, so be on the lookout, okay? In the meantime, check out these great burger pieces from our site. The Ramen Burger It's a bujang burger, that's what.

and then went all out wacky. You wouldn't think of it at first, but did you know you can make some awesome, unconventional… Continue reading »
"This is borderline burger heaven"
No, the Russian intelligence agency has not set up a makan shop in Malaysia. KGB stands for Killer Gourmet Burgers, and this burger restaurant in Bangsar has been winning over burger fans ever since they opened. After a recent visit, it is oh so easy to see why. The burgers are some of the best I've had in KL
, and anywhere else for that matter. The burgers here are also a clear homage to famous American burgers, and that my friends, is always a good thing.
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.
