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.

We get it: a lot of us are busy nowadays and have (seemingly) less time to cook and eat properly. After all someones gotta go to all the restaurants and kedai makans right? Joking aside though, we think that cooking need not be a laborious and time consuming task. With a bit of forward planning, here’s how you can cook and eat better at home. You'll… More »
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.
This naughty but nice treat uses kuih bakul as a filling. Just make sure you freeze the little slices of kuih bakul for a few minutes before using so it’s easier to handle. Great tea time treat. More »
Nasi Lemak Monday is here again!
At Section 6 Kota Damansara is Nasi Lemak Gmie D'Kota. It's a simple stall selling nasi lemak bungkus in amusing packets that kinda look like teepees (you know, the Native American tents...).
The nasi lemak is a simple, straightforward affair. is not too creamy with santan so it makes light eating. The deep red sambal tumis ikan biis is surprisingly quite mild so this is a good nasi lemak for wussy tongues. Half a boiled egg rounds off the packet along with fresh, crunchy cucumber. If you're into a light nasi lemak for breakfast or brunch, Gmie D'Kota's nasi lemak might just be the thing.
