It's Monday again? So it's another Nasi Lemak Monday! Today's nasi lemak shout-out is for the stall that had the longest lines during our 'I Eat Nasi Lemak' event last year. They go through 100kgs of rice a year, so you know it's going to be good..
Rice is the star here
: 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.
Go for the basics: their sambal is thick with chili and onions
, and is a luxurious, unctious version of this compulsory accompaniment. The flavours are deep and rich
, and not too spicy either so you can enjoy this without scalding your tongue. Don’t forget to try their lauks as well; they have quite a wide array, from ayam goreng, to various sambals (sotong being wonderful!
) and rendangs. Check out the full review here

Hey ho, it's Nasi Lemak Mondays! This week, hidden in a housing area in an 'older' part of KL, is V3 Corner and their scrumptious nasi lemak...
In an old taman perumahan, at the corner of Lorong Tiong Nam 1 and Jalan Tiong Nam, at the backroads of Jalan Raja Laut, lies a stall. The stall, Gerai V3 Corner (which I think is a hilarious, and very incongrous name!) is run by a family of four. Now, the nasi lemak here is always hot and fresh every morning. The rice is crumbly and tender, with salty ikan bilis and peanuts adding wonderful crunch, and the fresh cucumber slices give a burst of coolness.
This is important, as the sambal is hot, wielding a deep, savory chili heat and flavor. Now remember the fried egg, and why I said you should always take up the offer of a ‘telur mata’ on top? It is because the eggs will be fried in-situ, and plopped onto your nasi lemak piping hot. The whites will be crunchy and crisped up just enough, while the yolk will still be liquid and runny. Break into the yolk and let the golden goodness ooze onto your sambal-fied nasi lemak. Continue reading »
So there was this really, really busy day at the office in which I decided that I just had to bake cookies because nobody else decided to cook that day. I was also slightly angry (okay maybe very angry) at the notion that my resident chef promised to bake me doughnuts but decided not to that very day [sorry! - Chef Eddie]
. Using this anger as fuel for inspiration (and the fact that I ate some pretty darn good walnut cookies over the weekend), I made a historic attempt to bake my very own cookies.
After a quick lookup in the internet, I realized that I wanted a delicious tasting cookie that had only a few ingredients in it. And lo and behold the 4 ingredient ultra delicious Nutella cookies…
