"Savoury soup, amazing fried chicken and a to die for Duck Egg Gulai!"
At a glance, behind Restoran Ayam Kampung Publika could be any other nasi campur restaurant. But this place in Damansara Perdana does things a bit differently. Most nasi campur places have rows and plates upon plates of dishes, but not here. Oh no no, this place isn't into that. After all, how often do you really take more than 3 lauk into your rice plate? Exactly. Here, the selection is small. And that my friends, is a good thing.
Here at FriedChillies, we love our local markets. There's something evocative about going to a morning or night market, something intrinsic that you would never experience in the all too sanitary mega and hypermarkets that we're fast becoming accustomed to. Luckily, Malaysians are still going to the markets in droves. Markets are often colourful and quite a sight to behold.
Going to the market is almost like a ritual in itself. Once you get there, it's an awesome spectacle of loud noises from the vendors vying for your attention and promising bargains. It's the sights and smells and the ability to get up close and personal to people who really know their stuff. And if you're smart enough, sometimes the market offers great savings over your neighbourhood mega retailer too.
A while back we wrote a little guide on how to best experience markets. You can check it out here!
Though it was written awhile back, those rules still apply and will be of great help if you haven't been to our local pasars
much. And take your pick of what market to go to. There's dozens of them out there across the country. Famous ones include Pasar TTDI, Pasar Chowkit and Pasar Selayang. I know of people who actually drive up to a couple of hours out of KL… Continue reading »
