My Roti Chanai is buttery, fluffy, good, but Mamak’s version is fluffier and crispier. The bowl of curry that goes with is full of flavour, that Monsieur and I use it on our rice.
My Nasi Lemak is super fragrant, the coconut rice keeps its promises and is as coconutty as one could hope for. There’s a choice of chicken curry or beef rendang, I went for chicken curry and it doesn’t disappoint! The chicken curry (breast part) is cooked to perfection (and I’m normally into chicken thigh!) I love the preserved vegetables (achar salad) that go with, and the fact they’re cold does not bother me at all. If anything, Monsieur finds my peanuts a tad too salty.
Love the tidy wall of seasonings!
Monsieur’s Special fried rice is tasty, and good for those who aren’t too fond of dishes with multiple spices. The pink bits of meats are actually barbecued chicken (not pork). If you choose to go for the same two dishes, best us to start eating the fried rice first as the Nasi Lemak might hide the flavors of the fried rice.
