Nasi Lemak Kukus

20 11 2009

Nothing beats having a packet of nasi lemak for breakfast. And that was exactly what I had last week when my colleague surprised me with a packet of nasi lemak kukus (steam nasi lemak). There is even a sticker with the contact number of the seller in case you want to order more. How enterprising…

Anyway, what makes this packet of nasi lemak different from the usual nasi lemak bungkus is the extra piece of sambal chicken. Definitely a good way to satisfy a hungry stomach in the morning.





Delicious Nyonya @ Tropicana City Mall

16 11 2009

There was a new restaurant recently opened at Tropicana City Mall called Delicious Nyonya. It is apparently owned by the Tai Thong Group which has a whole range of other F&B outlets such as San Francisco Steakhouse, Royal Thai, Room Eighteen, Bad Ass Coffee and etc.

Nyonya cuisine is synonymous to delicious food since its history traces back to the days where early Chinese settlement from China weds local Malay folks. As a result, the first generation of mixed Chinese-Malays were known as Peranakan (male being known as Baba while female as Nyonya). Consequently, nyonya food is a fusion of the Malay and Chinese style cooking style.

I had high hopes when I walked into Delicious Nyonya that day for lunch with my colleagues. The restaurant is spacious and bright while the furnishing is reminicient of the Baba Nyonya style restaurant.

Food however was a mixed bag. I ordered the nasi lemak which was recommended by the waiter.

It was ok as far as the taste is concern. As usual, the dish came with some Acar and ikan bilis.

Oh apart from ala carte meals, they also sell Nyonya Kuih. Kuih Seri Muka is commonly seen everywhere.

This is called Kuih Ketayap which has coconut fillings wrapped with green pancake skin.

Pulut panggang is another crowd favourite.

The Asam Fish was a disappointment. My colleague told me that it tasted raw or uncooked. When we raised this up with the waiter, we were told that the fish that they used (ikan Tenggiri) has that natural smell / taste in them.

However, we didn’t buy the story and they promptly swapped it with Nyonya Curry Chicken. This one actually fared better and I like it although my colleague said that the ‘santan’ (coconut milk) taste was very heavy.

Similarly, the Nyonya Laksa shared the same comment.

Some of the food came with side dishes such as this small bowl of Acar and mixed vegetables.

As for dessert, they threw in a bowl of green bean dessert soup. I find it too sweet for my taste.

Overall, I wouldn’t recommend this place as I have tasted much better Peranakan food elsewhere. Perhaps, we were there on the wrong day when the food somehow weren’t that great.

6 to 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak @ Petaling Jaya

26 10 2009

I have always wanted to blog about this place. Located just a stone throw away from my old house, 6 to 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak is a very famous eatery at Section 17, Petaling Jaya. During night time, the place is usually packed with customers.

Ever since it is opened many years ago, I have been frequently dining at this place. Their business hours were from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. (hence the name) but they have since catered to the lunch hours crowd as well.

To me, a good nasi lemak is determined by the santan or coconut milk rice, the accompanied dishes (sotong, beef, mutton or chicken) and of course the sambal.

6 to 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak has perfected their recipe and make one of the best tasting nasi lemak ever.

I chose their sambal cuttlefish last weekend and it tasted really good.

The sambal was not overly spicy which is a good thing as it doesn’t overpower the overall taste. Besides, I don’t like sambal that is too hot.

Beside Nasi Lemak, one must also try their western menu. We ordered the grill dory fish. The meat is soft with a tinge of wine taste to it.

The price ain’t expensive (I can’t remember how much it was but I think it is less than RM 15). The fries were nice and crispy.

And they gave a spoonful of mixed vegetables too.

Overall this is a good place to have delicious food. For your information, this restaurant was also featured in the popular eating show ‘Ho Chiak’.
