Nasi Lemak Bungkus at Restoran Ameer Ehsan

Quickie Review

It's not often that I find good nasi lemak bungkus at mamak shops. Here's one though from Restoran Ameer Ehsan at Taman Maluri. It's mysteriously non-branded i.e. there is no identifying stamp or mark. The waiters at the shop just said they get it every morning. Further questioning (and perhaps a language issue) yielded no further answers.



It's cheap (RM1.50) and basic: just rice, sambal and an egg. The rice is good - nutty and not too creamy with a crumbly texture. The sambal is great. Hot and laced with chillies and ikan bilis. It's hot enough that a drink of teh tarik afterwards gives your tongue and throat a nice, comfortable and slow burn going down. A good nasi lemak bungkus... even if the origins are unknown. I'll find out more with the next packet I have....

Nasi Lemak Saleha

It's a Nasi Lemak Monday...

Nasi lemak is fun when you have a range of lauk like sambals and rendangs and fried stuff. But I also absolutely love 'quintessential' nasi lemak stalls. You know, the ones that pop up every morning or night and sell just no frils nasi lemak. Like this one, Nasi Lemak Saleha Kampung Pandan.



It says there Kampung Pandan, but I've never been to the stall or shop there. The one I bought here, I found at Jalan Pandan Indah 6/8. It's a wee stall propped up at a busy intersection between the main road and some houses. It's a great nasi lemak and only RM1.30.

PARAM Taman Tun Dr. Ismail 2015

There's a lot of the usual same-old same-old stuff at the Pasar Ramadhans (Param) this year. Thankfully we also managed to unearth some new gems. This year's Pasar Ramadhan at Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (TTDI) had the usual stalwarts and a couple of new tricks up its sleeve.

But first, this popiah stall. You'll recognize it easily: it's the only one with the looooooong line. The reason for this is two-fold. First of all, the owner, Mr. Shahiful, takes his time and ovingly rolls each popiah by hand, one by one.


Lovingly hand-crafted, one by one


Each one is filled with corn, taugeh, shrimp and a secret saluce. The second reason for the line is because people order the popiah by the bunch! But trust me, if you're up to queue at least 15 minutes, the popiah is worth it: fresh, crunchy and spicy. A perfect snack for iftar.

Make your way into the Param and stop by Kuih Peneram Pak Su, selling, well, kuih peneram. They're like…  Continue reading »

PARAM Simpang Balak 2015

This is the place you go if you are fed up of the bland commercial stalls in Klang Valley and need to find a pasar ramadan that punches your tastebuds and give you a bit more flavour. Simpang Balak.

Once a month in a year, the road along the Shell Station Simpang Balak turns into a food carnival serving local favourites from murtabak to inconspicous malay kuihs such as Jongkong (It's a higher grade than Tepung Pelita.)



Our top favourite here, this year,are the Kuih Jongkong stalls. There are 2 of them. One by En. Md. Noh and the other Putra at No 49. Made from tepung beras, gula melaka and wrapped in banana leaf, this hard to find kuih sells out fast. Normally around 6.30pm. Bulan ramadan is the only time you can pick up Putra's Jongkong. other times, its made to order at RM2.20 per Jongkong.



Hanif serves simple nasi Arab, both…  Continue reading »

Nasi Lemak Amril, Pandan Indah

Let's enjoy some nasi lemak for brekkie before Ramadhan rolls around!

If there's one food that no one will have trouble finding it is, of course, nasi lemak. I think in just one neighbourhood anywhere in Malaysia, you're bound to find more than one Kakak or Abang selling it. In Pandan Indah, near MidPoint Shopping Centre is Nasi Lemak Amril.


Simple but spicy and nice..~

The nasi lemak here is crumbly ('ceroi' to some people) and not too heavy on the santan. The fried chicken is juicy and salty, but in the nice kind. Not the purse your lips and cringe kind of way. What I really love about the nasi lemak here though is the sambal. It's bright, rich and hot with the perfect consistency. Not too greasy, too. The other supporting characters are just nice too. The half boiled egg pre-sliced is a nice touch. A good nasi lemak that's available all day too!

Top 3 Things to Munch in IOI City Mall below Ten Bucks!

Slap bang next to the Marriott Putrajaya is this new huge shopping mall that will definitely make your head turn because its so huge and supposedly in the middle of nowhere. But then again, this location proved to be quite strategic as people all the way from KL to Seremban come shopping here. The local concept shops are fresh (some of them), there's an ice rink, parking is easy (for now-lah) and there a host of new food that you can try. Here are the Top 3 things we like to munch there.

Magnum Ice Cream, GE-3, Ground Floor
On weekends, the lines gets to be about 30- 40 people long nonstop. Why? because you can custom make your magnum ice cream with a variety of toppings from rose petals to chili flakes. A maximum of three toppings per ice cream. You get to select the ice cream base (vanilla or chocolate), then select the dip (dark, normal or white chocolate) then select the three toppings you want. The Magnum staff will then build the ice cream right in front of your eyes until it becomes like this!

Nasi Lemak Kak Diana, Taman Maluri

You know what's a diamond in the rough? It's a gem that's hidden, or unpolished, or basically a saying that means something wonderful that's remained hidden or unpolished. This term applies to the food world too of course. I found one such diamond in the back streets of Taman Maluri.

Kak Diana Sharif sells nasi lemak from a table along Jalan Jejaka 9 Taman Maluri. She sets up her table in front of a Chinese restaurant that closes for the evening. Yup, she only sells in the evening. But her nasi lemak is a hot seller in the area. She opens from around 5pm, and normally by 6pm she'll run out.



Her nasi lemak is delicious, and that is why she runs out fast. The rice is nutty with santan with a great creaminess and fragrance hallmark of a good nasi lemak. The sambal is superb too: deep red and tasting of slow-cooked onions and chillies, it's rich with flavour and hot as hell too, which plays well with the nasi. She also sells a killer sambal ikan sardin made…  Continue reading »
