The Romantic Picnic

by Honey Ahmad, on Wed, February 12, 2014
Special Feature
Here’s a thought. You and me. A tiffin full of delicious food. Somewhere green and secluded with the gurgle of nature. Klang Valley has tons of little nature pockets you can spend a Valentine weekend lazing under a sky (blistering or moody, it will always be warm) and sucking sauce off each other’s fingers. Feb 14th is a bit of a loaded gun. After…   More »

Nasi Lemak Lereh @ Tanjung Puteri, Melaka

by Edwan S., on Mon, February 10, 2014 - 10:38:09 AM, 0 comment
Time for Nasi Lemak Monday. This week we're sending you to historical Malacca and a breezy beach!

Nasi Lemak Lereh in Tanjung Puteri is one of the more talked about nasi lemaks in Malacca town, and with good reason too. There's something very 'Malaysian picnic' about having nasi lemak by the beach, right? And when the nasi lemak is as nice as the one in Nasi Lemak Lereh, then that's a bonus!



The nasi lemak here has crumbly, fragrant rice that is light but still scented with coconut. It is matched really well to a sambal that errs more on the sweet side. Of course the customary telur rebus, ikan bilis and kacang round it up. The chicken is very nice, tasting reminiscent of a good ayam kampung goreng. It is a bit greasy, but the turmeric flavour is well balanced with the salt.

A word of caution though: they run out very quickly, so be early!  Continue reading »

Nutella Chocolate Cake

by Honey, on Sun, February 09, 2014 - 6:10:40 PM, 0 comment
Quickie Recipe
So world Nutella day was on the 5th of February and since everyone was so excited when I talked about making a cake to celebrate this, here's a recipe. This is a cheat's cake because let's face it I'm lazy most days. So essentially this is a simple chocolate cake dressed up with Nutella.



Beat 3/4 cups butter with 1 cup sugar for about 3 minutes. Beat in two eggs and you should have a soft batter. Add 1 tsp vanilla (unable to find this in my pantry so I used a bit of coffee) and 3/4 cup milk. If your batter is not smooth don't worry.

Sift 1 cup flour with 1 Tbs baking powder, pinch of salt and 3/4 cups cocoa powder. *It's important to sift your dried ingredients for this recipe. I usually don't do it but in this instance it just makes mixing a whole lot easier. Switch to a spatula and fold dried ingredients in gently until you get a thick and rich chocolaty batter. Don't over mix but make sure it's even. Put it in a loaf pan 9 x 4.5 inches, pop in a 180 degree oven for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Check it after an hour and if you insert a knife in and it comes out clean- it's done!

Let it cool before just drizzling Nutella on top. This is a killer Valentine's cake but I just like to make it on sultry Sundays and enjoy it with a good book.

Tartlets are surprisingly easy to make and store. You can make the shells in advance and simply chill or freeze them for another day. The fillings are endless from chocolate to egg custard and can either be savoury or sweet. We filled ours with custard and fresh fruits for a classic French version.
