"Nasi Lemak done right!"
In Kampung Baru, there are arguably a few household names for nasi lemak, Nasi Lemak Wanjor
, Antarabangsa, City Roses and one of our favourites, Pak Hassan. He is right there up on top along with the best of the best and is situated right beside the main road (opposite of Menara DBKL). Pak Hassan is renowned for two of Malaysians' favourite breakfasts, which are nasi lemak and roti canai. More »
"No frills affordable kambing"
Dubbed to be one of the best places to enjoy kambing bakar, Warung Kambing Bakar Ayam Penyet Sahara (quite a mouthful) has quite the reputation. We have good reason to believe that a certain Kambing Bakar place in Ampang was so inspired by the Kambing here that he opened a Kambing Bakar shop himself. More »
Situated right beside DUKE highway, this establishment teases me everyday. With a tagline "Makan sampai puas" and being a "kambing" maniac I knew that I had to make a pit stop one day. After I placed my order for drinks, I took my plate and made a beeline towards the buffet table. The buffet table is split into different sections, there are raw meats, an assortment of meatballs for your steamboat, a nasi lemak section, ice cream section, dim sum and sauces. Feast your eyes!
"The Nasi Lemak Specialist"
The winning side dish that always keeps people coming to Ejam is their fried chicken. It’s even more enticing when paired with a dark crimson sambal and rice richly-flavoured with coconut. It’s no surprise that Ejam has been a favourite for residents of Malacca for more than 7 years. More »
"If it was in KL, we would go here every day!"
Cik Chom’s nasi lemak doesn’t look like the usual nasi lemak. Even the rice itself looks different – a dome made up of green rice on top of white, unusual yet appealing. And of course, sliced cucumbers would be too mainstream for this unconventional offering, so they use sliced green apples instead. Most importantly, it’s not only the appearance that sets Cik Chom’s nasi lemak apart from the rest, but it’s also the taste. More »
"One of the best places to enjoy tongue!"
I must confess I was seduced by a picture of sambal kerang on social media one day which led me to try the nasi lemak at Lesung Batu. Jasmeen who runs the place and is pretty much a wizard in the kitchen herself serves mainly Malay-Patani food like tomyum and daging merah. Their specialty here is the lidah goreng kunyit. That’s fresh cow’s tongue, boiled, sliced thinly then fried crispy. Wowsers it’s good, firm outside but still a little soft within.
"Petite but Powerful!"
Each packet from Angah is wrapped meticulously in paper and banana leaf. Its enticing aroma pulls you closer, the quintessential packed meal that is undeniably Malaysian. Rice is rich with aromatics like ginger and lemongrass. You can also taste a strong pandan flavour (they actually add in pandan juice to the rice during the cooking process). The mild sambal has equal tones of sweet and sour, a lovely combination of de-seeded dried chillies, tamarind and tons of onions. You don’t taste the heat initially, you only notice it as it lingers after finishing a packet. Nasi Lemak Angah personifies that age-old adage – great things do come in small packages.
