It's Nasi Lemak Monday again! We're featuring one of our I EAT NASI LEMAK 2014 Heroes this week...
Sometimes life hits you hard and it's up to you to get back up. Imagine suddenly losing your job and having to start all over again. That's what happened to Mr. Bahrin and his wife, Pn. Hajar. They had to scramble to get back on their feet. Then lo and behold, a silver lining appeared... in the form of nasi lemak.
Mr. Bahrin cooking his sambal. Good sambal needs hours to cook.
It all started when they couldn't give pocket money to the kids to bring to school. Instead, they made nasi lemak as a packed lunch. When their kid got home, a strange thing happened. "Our child said the friends wanted the nasi lemak and 'ordered' it. So we agreed," said Mr. Bahrin and Pn. Hajar. So the next day they made some extra nasi lemak. A few packets soon became 10...20... 30! That's when they decided to turn it into a full fledged business. And thankfully, their nasi lemak, now branded BK4 (Bandar Kinrara 4) is doing well and supplying to various places.
There's an almost retro look and feel to their nasi lemak. The rice is tasty and crumbly with a deep red sambal that takes them hours to cook. It's not too spicy and the portion size is just nice. There's a slice of omelette instead of boiled egg and the ikan bilis is crunchy and salty. A great combination that makes a simple nasi lemak, well, nice!
