Best of all, the ingredient set is still pretty simple. This recipe is quick to cook, and just about perfect for those lazy weekday nights or weekend afternoons.

Kamal Mee Goreng Mamak Joins Pak Nasser and Uncle Chin on AirAsia

Quickie Review
AirAsia Girls on Show


After Pak Nasser Nasi Lemak and Uncle Chin Chicken Rice, AirAsia is now introducing Kamal Mee Goreng Mamak. Available on air on all flights by AirAsia (not X). They launched a slew of other stuff but its the mee goreng mamak that we love. This yellow noodle fried furiously in a wok indian muslim style is a favourite amongst Malaysians as a late dinner snack and AirAsia's version is filled with chicken bits, fishcake, tauhu (beancurd), eggs and cauliflower.

It's available now and AirAsia explains three reasons who you should pre-book ahead instead on inflight. Firstly, you get 20% off the retail price, secondly it guarantees you the mee goreng mamak onboard and lastly you get to be served first. All pre-book meals will be given a 100ml mineral water free of charge.

Now you may ask why did they named this after 'Kamal'. According to AirAsia, apparently Kamal is the name of one of the aircraft schedulers for AirAsia. One fine day Tony Fernandes saw Kamal's face and went "I have to have his face and name on the mee goreng mamak" .So there you have it. Tastewise, this is well prepared for aircraft food. Taste like the real thing. A bit spicy and salty on ground but should be quite allright 24,000 feet in the air. You do know that your tastebuds go slightly numb due to…  Continue reading »

Photo Essay
Last Saturday (9th November) we packed a hall full of nasi lemak lovers. With us were 10 of the Top nasi lemak sellers in Klang Valley. [Video]

CrowdThe earliest birds came at 8.15am eventhough the event started at 9am and way past 2pm people were still calling to come

Friends and family who are seldom seen before 12pm woke up early to join us. People of all races and all ages came together for the love of something so simple as a scoop of rice, sambal and perhaps a fried chicken or two on the side.

There were queues.

QueuesBawa bertenang dan makan nasi lemak was our motto and yeah people were cool as cucumbers

But everyone pretty much got along and ate together, sharing tables. Old friends hooked up. New friends were made.

The vendors too had a ball because they got to show off their craft (and they are our artisans folks, make no mistake)…  Continue reading »

Nasi Lemak Ujang Corner

by Edwan S., on Mon, November 04, 2013
Malay

"100 kilograms of rice a day!"

Imagine going through 100 kilograms of rice each day. ONE HUNDRED KILOGRAMS. That’s a whole lotta rice! Yet, that’s exactly the amount of rice Nasi Lemak Ujang corner goes through in a day. Read that right? A DAY. That means 700kg of rice a week, at least! With good reason, though. This unassuming stall, which has been in operation for 30 years (and now with branches too!), was started at Medan Selera Taman Greenwood by Pn. Juairiah Mohd Sharif, and is now run by her amiable daughter, Pn. Nora. That’s some longevity, huh?

Kak Nora

So what makes the nasi lemak special? It’s the rice, naturally. The rice is soaked, par-cooked by steaming, cooled, then steamed again before the coconut milk is added. The result? A crumbly, fragrant, deliciously coconut-ty and nutty rice that pairs wonderful with their range of lauk.
