Warung Leko

"Tender ribs. Fiery sambal. YES PLEASE."

It’s easy to see the appeal of ayam penyet restaurants. Spiced chicken (and beef, and fish, etc.) is fried to a golden crisp on the outside with still fork tender meat within. Served with rice and usually fiery hot sambals, it’s no wonder these restaurants won over the hearts and tummies of Malaysians.   More »

Fried Nian Kao ‘Sandwich’

by Foodster X, on Tue, August 05, 2014

This naughty but nice treat uses kuih bakul as a filling. Just make sure you freeze the little slices of kuih bakul for a few minutes before using so it’s easier to handle. Great tea time treat.

Nasi Lemak Gmie D’Kota

Quickie Review
Nasi Lemak Monday is here again!

At Section 6 Kota Damansara is Nasi Lemak Gmie D'Kota. It's a simple stall selling nasi lemak bungkus in amusing packets that kinda look like teepees (you know, the Native American tents...).



The nasi lemak is a simple, straightforward affair. is not too creamy with santan so it makes light eating. The deep red sambal tumis ikan biis is surprisingly quite mild so this is a good nasi lemak for wussy tongues. Half a boiled egg rounds off the packet along with fresh, crunchy cucumber. If you're into a light nasi lemak for breakfast or brunch, Gmie D'Kota's nasi lemak might just be the thing.

In front of Palma Putri Apartment,
Jalan Cecawi 6/6, Kota Damansara
47810, Petaling Jaya.  Continue reading »

Gula Melaka Creme Caramel

by Edwan S., on Thu, July 31, 2014
Dessert

This looks like your regular caramel custard pudding, but it’s actually sweetened with a gula melaka syrup for a local twist on a classic dessert. The subtle flavour of the palm sugar really brings out the smooth creaminess of this dessert. It’s easy to make, too!

Purple Cili Padi

One of the best things about balik kampung is you get to visit local markets and see the produce. Of course there won't be that much of a difference compared to markets in the Klang Valley (maybe East Coast markets are, though) but once in a while you will come across unusual ingredients.

This year I was walking around the vegetable section at a market in Taiping, Perak. The sellers sold the usual suspects: fresh leafy greens like bayam, sawi and kangkung, to taugeh and various tofu products as well. Then I saw small plastic plates of what I thought were really tiny eggplants.

But as it turns out, they were actually purple cili padi!



I've never seen them before and if you have any idea what cultivar this is, do let us know in the comments. I bought RM1 worth (a tiny packet) to try them out. These pretty chillies had the exact hue of a good eggplant.  Continue reading »
