Quickie Review
It's hot on the run-up to I EAT NASI LEMAK 2014 and today we're featuring nasi lemak heroes from Negeri Sembilan..

It Must Be Something In The Water...

Port Dickson must be the go to beach destination for us Klang Valley folk. And of course: it's nearby and the beaches are really quite nice (after those 'dark ages' in the 90s) nowadays. Well here's one more reason to go to Port Dickson: nasi lemak. We found this great nasi lemak at Seri Mesra restaurant. It's a seafood and ikan bakar restaurant, in actuality. But we found out that boy does it have a great nasi lemak.

Simple done right at Seri Mesra.

It's a simple nasi lemak done right, that is far more than the sum of its parts. According to owner Zie, it's all in the 'air tangan' of her mother that does the cooking. We suspect they might be cooking the nasi with sea water for this distinctive taste. Crumbly, coconutty rice is paired excellenty with their sweet and spicy sambal. The best part and what makes the nasi lemak here unique is that it goes really well with the seafood sold here too! So nasi lemak with ikan bakar? Tomyam? You'll find it here at Seri Mesra!

Healthier Nasi Lemaks: Ruyi & Greenlicious

Quickie Review
As much as we love nasi lemak (and really, we do love it: any nasi lemak review or article on this site gets loads of hits compared to others), we gotta admit that it’s not the most healthy of dishes. Yes, it’s all that santan and oil and fried stuff that makes a nasi lemak so, so good but too much of a good thing can be… well, bad.

So can a nasi lemak be tasty but healthier at the same time? It sure can! And we’re thankful that there are folk who took it upon themselves to do healthier versions of nasi lemak without sacrificing the flavours that make it delicious.

Ruyi Vegetarian Restaurant

Mr. Foo was a graphic designer and photographer before he decided to open Restoran Sayur-Sayuran Ruyi in Kepong. “My wife and I thought that vegetarian foods are healthier and better in terms of nutrition,” said the softly spoken gentleman. “So we figured, yes, let’s share our love of vegetarian food with all Malaysians. At the same time we knew that there are some dishes we cannot stray away from. Nasi lemak is one of them.”

The soft spoken Mr. Foo

It’s really tasty too. The rice is cooked with freshly pressed pandan juice so it acquires this pleasant green tint. The sambal eschews onions in favour of Chinese cabbage for pungency while maintaining a thick texture and great…  Continue reading »

Nasi Lemak Alor Corner

by Edwan S., on Fri, October 24, 2014

"Mountains of lauk and delicious nasi lemak."

Jalan Alor. Two words that mean only one thing to most if not all Malaysians (and tourists too!): FOOD. So well known it is for food that a move by DBKL to change the name was met with vehement protests from tenants and visitors alike. It’s a street that is renowned internationally as being a haven for street food of all kinds. Seafood, mamak food, tom yum shops, even ice cream and drinks. And while most of these are Chinese makan places, in the mornings you’ll find a gem of a nasi lemak place: Nasi Lemak Alor Corner...   More »

Nasi Lemak Kukus Fauzey

by Edwan S., on Thu, October 23, 2014

"Fried nasi lemak. Do you need anymore reason?"

Nasi lemak is a beautiful dish in the way that there are so many interpretations of it that somehow, still hold true to the ‘spirit’ of a nasi lemak. This is mainly because despite the variations, most people will agree on several key components: rice in coconut milk, a sambal, egg, peanuts and anchovies. But once every so often, there’ll be a nasi lemak that would seem strange… but somehow work in all manners of deliciousness…   More »
