Nasi Lemak ‘Bakul’ @ Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam

Quickie Review
Nasi Lemak Monday time! Today we're checking out a 'brader' that sells nasi lemak in a basket in front of a supermarket. Sometimes, good food doesn't mean it comes from a cafe. From a 'bakul' also can!

In front of the My Mydin supermarket in the hilly neighbourhood of Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam, a 'brader' is always there in the mornings selling packets of nasi lemak from a 'bakul' (origins of bakul cannot be traced back to the Mydin he works in front of...). On weekdays, one can see a bunch of cars dropping by to get nasi lemak from him. He sells basic packets of nasi lemak; egg, ikan bilis, ayam goreng. Take your pick. They're all good, quintessential nasi lemaks, with no frills, just deliciousness. Do take note it is tapau only.

The Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng* (RM3.50) here is fragrant and wrapped in banana leaf and wax paper. It is not too 'lemak' tasting, which makes it a light and easy nasi lemak to start off your Mondays with. The sambal is more on the sweet side, so sweet sambal fans, do take note. Ayam goreng is fried to a wonderful dark brown, and is seasoned with just enough salt to bring out the flavours of the chicken. Crunchy ikan bilis tops it off, though the cucumber slice is negligible and would be better off elsewhere.

*yes, we're featuring a lot of nasi lemak ayam goreng so far, but fret not, more interesting…  Continue reading »

Where To Eat

Mr. Junior Burger

by Acacia Daud, on Wed, January 29, 2014
Street Burgers


Splash, Merry Go Round, and Flame Thrower might sound like the name of theme park rides – and it’s probably where the founders of Mr. Junior drew their inspirations from when they opened up a burger stall six years ago. Having discovered a knack for kitchen experiments, the brothers found a burger patty recipe that tickled their taste buds and decided to develop their talents. They opened a home based burger delivery service and from there it grew to a small stall lodging on the premises of another restaurant, before continuing to open outlets in Shah Alam and Kelana Jaya.

We should tell you early on that the best part of the patties is that they are 100% homemade beef and chicken. This means that the goods are completely free of preservatives, and are made of real, raw meat flavored to the Junior standards and recipe. The sauces are made fresh every day, so you’re ensured a good batch upon ordering. Patties come in interesting squares instead of your standard circle.

The menu is pretty simple – six original burgers, all with special names and themes. The first, Mr. Junior Original, will have you appreciating the crumbly texture of the patty, chewy and with a good thickness and salted flavor, served with veggies and a dash of chili sauce. The Flame Thrower cooks up a chockfull of spiced meat that will leave your tongues steaming for water, a great zinger to fuel an all-nighter.

The most popular burger in the clan is the Pizza Burger. We don’t understand how the concept of combining two extremely good comfort food - Pizza (!) and Burger (!!) - has not taken over the world yet, but safe to say that Mr. Junior does justice to both deliciously. A meaty beef patty enveloped in gooey, warm mozzarella cheese, drizzled with a tomato based pasta sauce. The sauce lightly recalls a Bolognaise flavor, heavy on tangy tomato yet sweet. The combo definitely brings to mind thoughts of devouring pizza but nope, you’re actually chewing on a good, solid burger.

Nasi Lemak Ayam @ SA Anjung Seri Timur

Quickie Review
It's Nasi Lemak Monday again... well, almost Tuesday actually. We had a busy, glam filled time over the weekend (checkout the I Eat KL FB page for a glimpse!), hence the late update. But better late than never! Today's nasi lemak is a bit further out of KL...

Nasi lemak by the ocean. How's that sound? Nice, right? At SA Anjung Seri Timur in Port Dickson, you're but a stones throw away from the Malacca Straits as you enjoy a plate of Nasi Lemak with Ayam Masak Merah, which is a steal at only RM4. Remember, we're out of KL now, hence the prices.

The nasi lemak is pretty run of the mill, with the usual suspects: coconutty, fragrant rice, a very well cooked hard boiled egg (it's a treat to get one without a grey ring surrounding the yolk, for once!), and crunchy kacang and salty ikan bilis. But the Ayam Masak Merah takes this nasi lemak to a whole new level. Juicy, well fried chicken is bathed in a spicy and tangy chilli sauce, laced with pungent but sweet red onion. This plate of nasi lemak would be awesome after a beach outing.

Sweet! Love this as I'm looking forward to claim a version of my own. Though, I've heard about beef to fat ratio of the minced beef, can you share what ratio you guys used?

Hi Jonathan, so glad that you like the recipe. We didn’t use any particular type of dried chillies, just the normal dried red ones. We do like it spicy so we left the seeds in when we blend the chillies, but if you like it milder, it’s better to remove the seeds.

I love spicy food but this is by far the spiciest dish I have ever made.
Are the dried chilies you use a certain type?
Do you remove the seeds from the chilies before you blend them?

The flavour of this dish was amazing. I can’t wait to make it again.

Ok, you've missed a couple of gems here - Espresso Lab which arguably serves the best coffee in Publika/Solaris Dutamas. Nathalie's Gourmet Studio, which has great French food. Osteria Real Blue for authentic Italian cuisine. Yamagoya Japanese ramen. Go explore, there's much more to be found.
