Selamat Hari Raya from Friedchillies!

Makan Musings
Ramadhan has come to an end again. To be honest, this year's Ramadhan felt a bit quiet. Maybe people are just taking time to wind down, or could be because of some national tragedies. Either way, it has been a good bulan puasa to relax and reflect back on the more important things in life. We hope you had a good one, wherever you are.

Even so, here at Friedchillies, we hope we brought all of you some food-related fun. Maybe you went to one of the PaRams on our recommendation? Kelana Jaya was still good, and we even found some new(ish) PaRams which we were quite impressed with.


Awie Satar is a PaRam KJ institution of sorts

Maybe, too, you tried some of the recipes we've been sharing this Ramadhan and made them for iftar? But hey, you can always make them for Hari Raya as well. Thanks to all of you who tuned in to our Google+ Hangouts as well! We made speedy kuey teow, pengat pisang and that yummy rendang…  Continue reading »

Pasta Goreng

Here’s a quick and easy recipe to serve guests when they come visiting this Raya. Delicious and quick to cook, it’s using stuff you should probably already have lying around in your pantry. Give it a go!

Inside Scoop

by Edwan S., on Wed, July 23, 2014

"Gorgeous, flavourful ice creams. Mmmm..~"

Now is the best time ever to be a foodie in Kuala Lumpur. Never before have we been so spoilt for choice as so many independent and artisanal makan spots are popping out all over the city. You name it they got it: bread, coffee, pizza, burgers… and ice cream. Which brings us nicely to Inside Scoop at Bangsar which has been around for close to a year. This must be one of the best ice creams in KL. The place itself is tiny but very cosy and well decorated. At the entrance is a white board wall of sorts where fans write down thank you notes and tributes. It’s pretty cute.

Hammam Tearoom

by Honey Ahmad, on Mon, July 21, 2014

"A real taste of Morocco in the heart of KL"

Having operated the successful Hammam spas for some years, Adam Demnati and his partner Su En finally branched out to food (about time too, some would say). The Hammam Tearoom hugs the side of their Publika branch and boasts an extensive collection of reviving and therapeutic teas but that is another review. Today, I am here for the food. Moroccan food as far as my travels taught me carries warm spicy heat with deep notes of preserved fruits, namely lemons. They are heavy on other grains like couscous and barley. Their cuisine is often sweet to a Malaysian palate, gravies often thick and caramel-like with intense fruits like apricots and prunes distilled down and liberal scatterings of icing sugar and cinnamon especially on their pastillas (pastries).

Rendang Pedas Udang

Malay

Rendang Udang for Raya. How’s that sound, great right? Prawns might not be the most usual rendang ingredient but this bright, hot rendang beautifully highlights the natural sweetness and flavour of the crustaceans. It’s also one of the quickest cooking rendangs. Have it with nasi impit or lemang to wake up your taste buds on Raya morning!

Lists
I love ‘balik kampung’ especially a few weeks before Raya because I can hit Ipoh's ramadhan markets for local goodies. Here are my Top 5 I especially look forward to finding and bringing home for Iftar with my family.

1. Laksa Kuala Kangsar

This is very similar to Laksa Utara, a thin fishy broth flavoured…   More »

Harley’s

New Hang-outs
A brand new burger joint just opened in Taman Tun. Harley’s brings California-style burgers to a city that’s already pretty mad about burgers. “It’s modelled after In and Out,” says Gan the owner of this brand. With operational outlets in Myanmar, the Harley’s in Taman Tun is the first in Malaysia.

Harley's double beef cheeseburger

Here’s what you can expect from Harley’s. The patties are made from 100% Australian chilled beef (so it’s not frozen), made fresh everyday and grilled on order. Patties are thin but flavourful. The reason for this is so that it cooks faster (your wait time is minimal) and keeps prices affordable. A beef burger starts at RM6.90 and we’re talking quality beef here. “It’s fast food but not junk food,” he adds.

The burger I tried on their 2nd night, buns soft and sauce complements the flat patty

Basic menu at Harley's

I like that concept. Burgers come with a choice of 2 sauces, a classic mustard-ketchup sauce and a Harley’s special mayo sauce, that harkens a little of a 1,000 island dressing. Together, with soft buns, fresh veggies…  Continue reading »
