Nasi Lemak Wak Kentut KTM

Quickie Review

Wak Kentut came on our radar because of the cheeky name and news of excellent ayam goreng. This fried chicken folks, is the battered kind, with a crispy crunchy crust that hides within succulent chicken flesh. The process of making this chicken is not a big secret. Whole chickens are cut into 8 (so the pieces are large), marinated in a batter made from a self-concocted spice and flour mix, then fried in hot oil.

“Dia lembut di dalam, crispy di luar,” smiles Ira, Wak Kentut’s daughter. What makes the chicken consistently good is that everything is mixed fresh on the day it is fried. It’s her father that developed the recipe. As for the nasi lemak, sambal and other dishes and mee rebus on offer it’s her mum’s recipes. They have been opened since 1989 near the KTM station hence the reference to the name.

Look at all that crispiness!

Now to the colourful name. Ira says, her father loved to drink teh halia…  Continue reading »

Sangkaya Coconut Ice Cream

Quickie Review

If you've been out and about at food events or the city lately, chances are you've seen Sangkaya. Sangkaya's specialty is their coconut ice cream made from - yup, you guessed it, coconut. Coconut milk, to be exact. Pure, Thai coconut milk (or cream) is used to make their ice confection.


Coconut heaven.

You can have it by the scoop but the way to have it is to go for the Signature (RM10). Three scoops of their coconut ice cream with shavings of coconut and of course, served in a coconut shell. The coconut ice cream is ridiculously delicious: creamy with a gentle sweetness and none of that 'muak' people often associate with coconut milk based desserts. It's super refreshing too. As a bonus, those coconut shavings are a wonderful textural contrast to the silky smooth ice cream and you can have it with a myriad of toppings: Nestum cereal, peanuts, corn kernels. They're all awesome.

Sangkaya has opened a few outlets at most hip and happening spots…  Continue reading »

Nasi Lemak Bungkus at Restoran Ameer Ehsan

by Edwan S., on Wed, August 26, 2015 - 9:36:12 AM, 0 comment
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

Quickie Review

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

Quickie Review

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

by Foodster X, on Mon, June 08, 2015 - 10:34:13 AM, 0 comment
Quickie Review

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!
