Chinese New Year is around the corner!
The first major holiday of the year is the perfect time to be with friends and family, and what could be better to make that circle complete than with... FOOD! Think about it: reunion dinners, delectable treats and sweets, home-made specialties.

Welcome to Nasi Lemak Mondays, where we highlight noteworthy nasi lemaks in and around the Klang Valley.
Tucked in the quiet neighbourhood of Denai Alam, Shah Alam is the family run Pak Ron Kopitiam. Here, the crowds are mostly easy going families, giving the place a friendly, welcoming vibe. Make your way here on weekends before noon (as they run half day), take a seat in their comfy chairs and have their Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (RM6.50).
The nasi is crumbly and nicely scented with pandan and is not too 'heavy' tasting. The sambal though is fiery hot and will leave your brows beaded with sweat. The ayam goreng, however, is the star of the show! Fried fresh in the morning to a delicious burnished colour, you can taste the seasonings: hints of cumin, coriander, turmeric and spicy with chillies, it's the kind of fried chicken that'll have you nibbling it down to the bone and combing for crumbs on the plate.
All in all, a satisfying, lovely dish of nasi lemak, in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood.

This is the year of rising prices, apparently. Go on any social media site and you'd see people talk about how this is expensive, that is costly and whatnot. There is talk that some sacrifices need to be made, or some concessions that have to be done to our lifestyles.
And of course, us food lovers are feeling the pinch too. It could be… More »
