Nasi Lemak Monday this week hails from Ipoh, Perak. We were there last weekend and found a delicious one, in a busy kopitiam called 'Hollywood'..
This kopitiam called 'New Hollywood' in Ipoh is somewhat of an institution. There were a LOT of people when we went there. There are several stalls selling various breakfast fare, such as noodles, roti bakar and chee cheong fun.
We had the nasi lemak with rendang ayam that costs about RM5.00.
It comes with the usual suspects of kacang, ikan bilis and a whole boiled egg and slices of cucumber. The rendang ayam is tender and brightly coloured, as well as fragrant with galangal and lemongrass. The rice is crumbly and delightfully coconut-ty. It goes really well with the sambal, which despite the bright red colour, is more bark than bite.

"From pauper... to King!"
If you to go to Raja Burger maybe, just maybe, you would just think to yourself: “Oh it’s just a regular dude, selling burgers.
” Then let’s say you stick around until he closes… and then you see him drive off in a Merc SLK sports car
. Next thing you know, you’re lying in bed, dreaming about owning a burger stall of your own.
Here’s a really great and simple baking project you can do at home. It’s basically a pizza dough, but we sprinkled just parmesan cheese and rolled the edges around gooey mozarella for a savoury, crunchy flatbread. Try it, it’s really good! More »

Monday has rolled around so it's time for Nasi Lemak Monday, folks. This week, pay a visit to Kak Hani at Uptown Damansara. Her nasi lemak is goooood...
There's Kak Hani packing the good stuff..
With Nasi Lemak Kak Hani in Damansara Uptown, the pulling factor is her ayam masak merah
. Along with the usual tones of tanginess and sweetness that comes from chilli and tomato sauce, Kak Hani adds kaffir lime leaves to the dish to give it a fragrant kick. The rice has a smidgen of coconut flavour, light and fluffy. The portion of rice is quite big
, your tummy will be full after just one packet. Her sambal is pretty mellow with a low level of heat so it's ideal for wussy tongues that can't handle too much chilli in the morning. It has a sticky ( almost oily ) consistency that makes it perfect mixed into the subtly flavoured rice.
Dig in, and forget about lunch!
Kak Hani has been operating in Damansara Uptown for the past 8 years. She opens as early as 6.45 am and finishes at about 10 am. The nasi lemak is so good, her husband, Abang Ramli, has set up another nasi lemak stall on another location in Uptown!

"This is borderline burger heaven"
No, the Russian intelligence agency has not set up a makan shop in Malaysia. KGB stands for Killer Gourmet Burgers, and this burger restaurant in Bangsar has been winning over burger fans ever since they opened. After a recent visit, it is oh so easy to see why. The burgers are some of the best I've had in KL
, and anywhere else for that matter. The burgers here are also a clear homage to famous American burgers, and that my friends, is always a good thing.
