Local Malaysian Cuisine : Kedai Malaysia (2)

Just last night, I came back to this Malaysian restaurant I wrote about in my last blog entry. I’m loving all thing about spice so I can wholeheartedly come to any place serving spicy (not hot, but spicy) food at almost anytime.

Last night was a cold one, rain poured and something that can warm my body could be one heck of a great choice. My friends and I were discussing a place to have dinner and back to Kedai Malaysia we went.

*Intermezzo : This is gonna be a shorter post compared to the previous one about Kedai Malaysia since I’ve been talking about a lot of things there and here I’m just going to talk about the food I got last night.*

So.. Last night I tried another menu, but it’s still a Nasi goreng (literally, translated to English to ‘fried rice’, a stir fried dish made of rice basis with various kinds of ingredients and toppings, depend on personal preferences) like I ordered last time, just different style. Last post, I talked about chicken buttered fried rice, but this time, I ordered curry fried rice. It’s a fried rice dish, seasoned with curry spices and stir fried with various toppings like sweet corn sprinkle, fish cake, vegetables, and chicken.

Curry Fried Rice

That curry fried rice is a little bit too hot for me, even I think it’s mild for average person. However, the spiciness give a great sensation during cold time like last night. Even it’s too hot for me, I love the spices. The taste really resemble curry from what I’ve had in Singapore. I don’t know, maybe the chef used the same curry spices. It wasn’t salty nor sweet, so it’s really well-balanced. That side dish on my top left of my plate is called ‘kerupuk’ or crispy crackers. Compared to my previous chicken butter fried rice, this curry fried rice, is more brown in color due to its curry ingredients.

*note : that portion is a little bit over for an average eater like me, so if you are a massive eater, you might like the size*

Spices will never get old for me, even though I don’t like spicy (hot) food, and that’s very unfortunate of me. Born and living in Indonesia where most of the delicious food are seasoned with spicy ingredients. Well.. well.. 😐

OK, this time let’s call it a day. I know it’s much shorter than some of my previous posts, but I think that’s more than enough for now. Stay tuned for my next foodie trips!

CHEERS!!

Local Malaysian Cuisine : Kedai Malaysia

Hello, I’m back with another culinary experience after a long time hiatus in culinary review due to financial problem (a.k.a money shortage).

Long story short, my friends took me to a Malaysian style restaurant one night. Actually, I’ve been here before, once, but it was before I started to blog. This place is a simply-styled restaurant. It is quite spacious actually, but the arrangement is a little bit different. Right after you come in, there will be only 2 or 3 sets of table and chairs. As you move to the rear area, going down some steps, you’ll soon find much bigger area with some tables (but no chairs! you will sit on the floor). The place is located in Jl. Selokan Mataram (actually, I don’t know the exact address, but the restaurant is known as Kedai Malaysia)

People say that the owner (as well as the head chef, probably) has been living in Malaysia for some time, so the food he cook is deeply influenced with the authentic Malaysian style and taste. That’s awesome! Having authentic taste of a far place just right in your city is always a great choice to consider as food lovers.

We only ordered 2 kinds of food. I ordered Chicken Butter Fried Rice and my friends ordered Chicken Curry. I will start to talk about the curry first. Here’s the snap picture of it :

Chicken Curry

Actually, for anyone who loves spicy (hot) food, this isn’t that spicy, but just full of spices. For me, since I have nearly zero tolerance against spicy food, this is pretty spicy for me, but I love it. Since it’s my friend’s dish, I only took a sip of the curry. It’s thick and literally full of spices. As soon as it entered my mouth, I felt a little bit of stings in my tongue but a lot stronger in my throat! The spices didn’t attack the tongue, but the throat instead. I dare to say, if I’m into spicy food, I’ll surely love the Chicken Curry. About the chicken, the meat is chopped into pieces and my friend said it’s quite tender.

Now, for mine, the Chicken Butter Fried Rice :nasgor-mentega-ayam

 Butter Chicken Fried Rice

Now, this is a magnificent recipe and execution. The fried rice is cooked without soy sauce (like how normally fried rice(s) are cooked with Indonesian style). However, the chef coated the fried rice with butter, so the taste was amazing. Buttery, but not overly oily. So, the overall taste is savory and a little bit salty. The chicken meat is right in the between of tender and chewy. It’s not exactly ‘dissolved’ in your mouth, but not very ‘rubbery’ as well. You will find chopped meatball and fish cake as well. The side dish (upper right corner of my plate) is called ‘kerupuk’. It’s a cracker that is commonly eaten with any dishes in Indonesia (maybe some other countries’ dishes as well). The platting was supposed to be neat and tidy. The rice is shaped like a giant dome (oh right, the portion is quite big for average eater like me) and you can get it with Rp 14k. It’s messy because I forgot to take a picture before I started to munch. 😀

So, it’s cool to be back talking about food again. I hope I can do it a lot often in the future. Stay tuned for the next stories of my life, give ‘like’ if you enjoy it, give comments if you have any opinion or suggestion for me.

CHEERS!!
