Quickie Review

As soon as you step out of your car, you can smell the inviting aromas coming from Kak Sofia’s stall. Kak Sofia has been at Mutiara Damansara for about 6 years and her nasi lemak is a popular breakfast option among the residents there.

A great little early morning nasi lemak

Kak Sofia’s nasi lemak has a subtle flavour, it’s not too creamy or rich, well-balanced with just soft notes of coconut milk. The rice is wonderfully non-clumpy, each grain separating with just a nudge of your spoon. Her sambal is red and thick, not too sweet and not too spicy. You can only taste the heat in your first bite, as soon as you mix it with the rice, the heat disappears.

Delicious daging kunyit with coconut rice... mmm...

There is an array of lauks on offer. Her more popular ones are the sambal sotong and daging kunyit.…  Continue reading »

Usop Burger Celup

Take a moment to feast your eyes on the picture below.

The special at Usop Burger Celup

This is one of the finest examples of a 'celup'-style street burger. In this case it's an oblong patty dipped in a thick a peppery black pepper sauce, then wrapped up in egg with more sauces and vegetables. Usop plies his trade from a little food truck and on most nights, he's steady at the grill as orders come in non-stop. In one night he sells from 3 to 4 bags of buns, that's about 150 burgers- not bad for a guys who started doing it part time.

When we chatted with him, Usop can't even sit down because of orders

Although there are many burger 'celup' out there, Usop's burgers are quite addictive probably due to the fact that he fries up his burgers then dip them in his black pepper 'berhantu' while it's still hot. He leaves it in so that…  Continue reading »

Nasi Lemak Kak Long, Taman Bukit Subang

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.

Nasi Lemak Gmie D’Kota

Quickie Review

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.

Top 5 @ PaRam Kota Damansara, Section 7, 2014

Quickie Review

About a week or so of Ramadhan has passed and we've been checking out PaRams (Pasar Ramadhans) in and around KL. This year we're trying to check out the less well known ones (you know, in comparison to the big ones like Bangsar or Shah Alam).

Our colleague, Meen, pointed us out to Section 7 of Kota Damansara. A little PaRam has been there for awhile, right behind a Shell station. So we checked it out and here is our Top 5!


Street Burrito Malaysia



This fledgling stall is testing out their burritos at the PaRam in hopes of setting up a shop (in TTDI they said). Their burrito features tasty, savoury and perfectly cooked rice inside a warm and soft tortilla. The chicken is griddled and remained juicy even when bought earlier. A touch of (very) tangy salsa rounds it off.

PaRam Season Is Coming!

We're on the verge of Ramadhan, so that means it is PaRam (Pasar Ramadhan) season again. We've gathered some of our favourite PaRams of last year and our picks of the bunch. Here's hoping these stalls are open again this year. In the meantime when you do go to the PaRams, remember: be cool, buy only what you need, don't waste, and whenever possible bring your own tapau boxes.

Selamat Menyambut Bulan Ramadhan.

PaRam Stadium Shah Alam
Seksyen 13, Shah Alam



Probably one of, if not the, biggest PaRams in the Klang Valley. It's absolutely packed with vendors selling everything from drinks and kuih, to whole roasted lamb and laksa. Amza's Kebab is a mainstay every year, so do check them out.

Nasi Lemak @ Al-Rafi Bistro

Quickie Review

Nasi Lemak Mondays is back! After a few weeks of intense burger-stuff, it's back to Malaysia's all time favourite nasi dish. This time, try one from a Mamak shop..

One of the best things about nasi lemak is that you can eat it at any time of the day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper. There's bound to be some place selling nasi lemak. Of course you can count on the neighbourhood Mamak shop to have their own as well. Over a World Cup screening, I tried the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (RM7) at Al Rafi Bistro in Shah Alam.



I must say I was surprised as I rarely have good nasi lemak at Mamak shops. But this nasi lemak had wonderfully aromatic nasi, laced with onions and ginger and nutty with coconut milk. The deep red sambal is not too spicy. That perfectly fried 'telur goyang' is a highlight. Sambal, runny yolk and nasi is a killer combo. The Ayam Goreng is good: freshly fried, with a shatteringly crispy crust and juicy, flavourful meat inside. Just about…  Continue reading »
