Popular eating spot, Rasta that now lies near the Taman Tun Pencala Link exit has started serving breakfast on weekend mornings. At the moment there's just one stall open which is Nasi Lemak Ibu that serves nasi lemak with killer daging dendeng and some pretty good lontong. Nothing like spicy daging dendeng in the morning
We've often wondered why there's no breakfast here because it seems like the perfct spot to read your weekend funnies, chill out and enjoy the sweet morning breezes that wafts into the food area. And now they've started! Huzzah! Nasi Lemak Ibu starts serving from 7am to about 1030am on Saturdays and Sundays. We definitely hope to see a few more stalls opening up in the morning. In the meantime you can enjoy… Continue reading »
"Have a 'gulab split', kulfi, gulab jamun and everything nice"
The thing about Indian sweets and desserts is that it's incredibly sweet. It competes head to head with Arabic sweets for 'Death by Sweetness'. Sweet, sweet, sweet and then a milky, spicy note that makes it slightly confounding for those who don't particularly appreciate things like cardamom in their desserts.
I am one of those people who love her curries and ghee laden breads but shy away from the psychedelic rows of temple hued desserts in Indian eateries. And then I met the kesari at Sangeetha. I've tried this before I found it a little weird, like it can't decide whether to be a pudding or a savoury snack. However... the kesari here is something else. It's wonderfully subtle with a perfect balance of sweetness and spiciness. It looks like a clump of delicate fish roe with a texture of rice pudding but the moment you put that first spoonful in your mouth, the complex flavours will take you aback like a sudden beautiful face in a sea of people. Incidentally kesari is basically a semolina dessert cooked in ghee and coconut milk.

The other day I was counting out my friand dishes and was shocked to discover I had over 30 of them! Though my family and I have always been a fan of cupcakes (we serve it every Raya long before it became a fad), in recent years I’ve grown to love friands just as much. To digress I like my cupcakes petit, two bites at the most and light and fluffy.… More »
