The best chicken rice in KL is found not in a swanky restaurant but in a hot little coffee shop at Chinatown, a few doors away from the more popular Nam Heong restaurant. I can whack off a whole bowl of the fragrant rice all on its own, and the chicken is smooth and firm even if it doesn’t look like much. The chilli sauce is fragrant and chock full of garlic the way it should be and bottles of thick black soy sauce stand on every table. I’d take anyone here in a heartbeat but not everyone appreciates the rustic environment. Their loss
Here’s a haul I know @samstillreading will approve of and one that made me happier than spending on anything beauty related. picked up loads and loads of books (31) at the #bigbadwolf sale last night for just under RM300. Mostly light reading material. I go for crime, mystery and thrillers. No chick lit or romance for me! Would have loved to check out the fantasy but the selection was tiny. Probably head back next week for another round. I need more bookshelves! Lol!
I’d be a lemony fool not to polish off this delicious light, refreshing dessert of iced lemon fool with a shortbread base and tart raspberries with raspberry sauce.
This was the closing dish to a special set meal by British chef Gary Rhodes for the Majestic Hotel KL. Stumbled on it when I was there for a wedding & I had to go back and have it. I used to love watching Gary Rhodes long before he was involved in reality TV contests. I still remember making his black pudding risotto back in uni. Gosh those were the days!
Hope you’ve had a fab weekend so far! xx
One of the most famous bak kut teh shops in Klang popularly just called “under the bridge”. Typical Klang style thick herbal broth. Haven’t had it for years! Came by on a whim since was in the area. Somehow my memory had it tasting better than my tongue tasted :p Oh but I love the rice. It’s flavoured with shallots and is super yum!
Funnest way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Learned to make Cointreau cocktails may even blog about it some time. So fun when I have no obligations to blog
