"Freshly fried chicken every time!"
So, what makes Famous, famous? Their fried chicken, of course.
In the 90’s, Nasi Lemak Famous was a small stall in Bangsar, a supper spot popular with the post-clubbing crowd trickling in from the nearby watering holes in Telawi. At first, many came for the nasi lemak but in the end, many more returned for their juicy fried chicken. Now, more than 30 years on, Famous is still striving and doing well.
"Oven-fresh pizzas, unbeatable prices."
Narvan Italian sounds like such an odd combination. ‘Narvan’ doesn’t sound anything close to Italian and sure enough, they’re not. Mr. Ata and Mrs. Ismat hail from Iran. They’ve been in Malaysia for years and their love of Italian food (pizzas in particular) led them to open Narvan Italian a couple of years ago.
Pasta goes really well in local style dishes. We tried out this sweet and faintly spicy pasta goreng kicap and came away impressed. It’s tasty, quite filling and easy to boot. Should go down really well with the kids! More »
Here's another round of Nasi Lemak Mondays!
'Bestnya', as Malaysians say, that there are just so many nasi lemak places in and around KL. It really is an anytime, anyday kinda food. This week we're checking out Nasi Lemak Kak Long from Taman Bukit Subang.
Yes it's messy, but hey, it's nasi lemak!
Kak Long's nasi lemak is lightly tinted green and is very creamy from the santan used. In fact this is the kind of nasi lemak that you HAVE to have it spicy. Luckily the sambal is more than happy to oblige: hot and spicy. Up the ante with her rendang kerang. Juicy cockles are cooked in a savoury, thick rendang gravy that is deeply spiced yet not overbearing. A good combination all for RM4.

It’s open house season, right? Other than Raya food, whip up this simple tuna dip and serve it with potato chips for a fun snack while you’re catching up with friends and family. More »
"Tender ribs. Fiery sambal. YES PLEASE."
It’s easy to see the appeal of ayam penyet restaurants. Spiced chicken (and beef, and fish, etc.) is fried to a golden crisp on the outside with still fork tender meat within. Served with rice and usually fiery hot sambals, it’s no wonder these restaurants won over the hearts and tummies of Malaysians.
