What to Cook

Sambal Goreng Ikan Keli

Malay

This is an all time favourite lauk for many Malaysians when it comes to mixed rice. Heck, it was a hot seller with nasi lemak at I EAT NASI LEMAK 2014 too when two vendors from Lenggeng, Negeri Sembilan brought it to the event. Easy to see why: it’s cheap (ikan keli/catfish is one of the cheapest fishes you can buy!) and damn tasty. So of course we had to make our own.

You came, you saw, you conquered. On Sunday, 2 November 2014, Friedchillies welcomed lovers of nasi lemak and food lovers in general at TM Convention Centre for I EAT NASI LEMAK 2014. And what an event it was!

The event was to start at 10am… but people were already lining up in droves from 9am! Some people were buying coupons and a lot of them were ready to stuff their faces with nasi lemak. The vendors were hastily preparing in anticipation of the onslaught. Some of the first time vendors looked visibly nervous (hehe).


You guys came in legions!

At 10am all you nasi lemak lovers walked in. There were LOADS of you that even we were surprised! We thought people would sort of trickle in slowly and gradually the turnout would increase. But nope! You guys showed your support by the bucketload. By 1130am the hall was already packed with nasi lemak lovers.


Packed hall? NVM. Just sit outside!


Warung Rindu were busy outside the hall too as they were frying fresh, hot chicken. .

The vendors had a busy time on their hand as they served…  Continue reading »

From Down South: Nasi Lemak from N. Sembilan

Quickie Review
It's hot on the run-up to I EAT NASI LEMAK 2014 and today we're featuring nasi lemak heroes from Negeri Sembilan..


It Must Be Something In The Water...

Port Dickson must be the go to beach destination for us Klang Valley folk. And of course: it's nearby and the beaches are really quite nice (after those 'dark ages' in the 90s) nowadays. Well here's one more reason to go to Port Dickson: nasi lemak. We found this great nasi lemak at Seri Mesra restaurant. It's a seafood and ikan bakar restaurant, in actuality. But we found out that boy does it have a great nasi lemak.


Simple done right at Seri Mesra.

It's a simple nasi lemak done right, that is far more than the sum of its parts. According to owner Zie, it's all in the 'air tangan' of her mother that does the cooking. We suspect they might be cooking the nasi with sea water for this distinctive taste. Crumbly, coconutty rice is paired excellenty with their sweet and spicy sambal. The best part and what makes the nasi lemak here unique is that it goes really well with the seafood sold here too! So nasi lemak with ikan bakar? Tomyam? You'll find it here at Seri Mesra!


The Yellow King of Kuahs... and Nasi Lemak

In the sleepy town of Lenggeng, Negeri Sembilan is a kedai makan full of joy. Well that…  Continue reading »

Healthier Nasi Lemaks: Ruyi & Greenlicious

by Edwan S., on Tue, October 28, 2014 - 2:52:52 PM, 0 comment
Quickie Review
As much as we love nasi lemak (and really, we do love it: any nasi lemak review or article on this site gets loads of hits compared to others), we gotta admit that it’s not the most healthy of dishes. Yes, it’s all that santan and oil and fried stuff that makes a nasi lemak so, so good but too much of a good thing can be… well, bad.

So can a nasi lemak be tasty but healthier at the same time? It sure can! And we’re thankful that there are folk who took it upon themselves to do healthier versions of nasi lemak without sacrificing the flavours that make it delicious.

Ruyi Vegetarian Restaurant

Mr. Foo was a graphic designer and photographer before he decided to open Restoran Sayur-Sayuran Ruyi in Kepong. “My wife and I thought that vegetarian foods are healthier and better in terms of nutrition,” said the softly spoken gentleman. “So we figured, yes, let’s share our love of vegetarian food with all Malaysians. At the same time we knew that there are some dishes we cannot stray away from. Nasi lemak is one of them.”


The soft spoken Mr. Foo

It’s really tasty too. The rice is cooked with freshly pressed pandan juice so it acquires this pleasant green tint. The sambal eschews onions in favour of Chinese cabbage for pungency while maintaining a thick texture and great…  Continue reading »
