Kayu Nasi Kandar - (Penang Road) Penang

We were back again in Penang (Shangri La Rasa Sayang & Chi Spa) after almost a year for another family occasion. This time an evening flight and by the time we arrived at about 9pm, I was hungry as a cow. There was no time to decide, neither pick and choose where to eat/makan. Straight away to the nearest - Kayu Nasi Kandar, we have been to many a times especially Kayu Taipan

Known for their nasi kandar, Kayu also offer various types of other food as well. Between those, we opted for sup kambing, sup ayam, nan bread with tandoor chicken and of course nothing like washing down with teh tarik.

Both the sups were flavoured up in a similar style, garnished with coriander leaves and paired with crusty bread. Lovely loveable aromatic soup and tender to its core kambing and chicken until every bit polished off. In fact for small eaters like us, quite filling and always been our favorite compared to the nasi kandar. 
The cousin who had naan with dhal curry and tandoor chicken was happy as well. He liked the soft fluffy bread, the thick delicious curry and the spicily grilled chicken. 
Considered a reasonably priced dinner though there's a little hike in the price

  11. Nava, that is a cool review. First thing caught my eyes was teh tarik, being a tea/coffee lover myself - this is a very inviting cuppa, looks effortlessly tasty.
    And the soup, Oh my! I have heard a lot about the chicken and mutton soups. My granny used to talk in specific about the "mutton leg soup" all the time, they taste so good because of the meat releasing its fat content, i guess. I have no expertise in cooking meat, but remove the meat and add some veggies, you definitely won't get the killer taste :)
    And the dal in the meal, looks just like home made one with no extra garnish, neat.

  12. Hi nava.... maybe u should try the soup kambing at nasi kandar pelita chai leng park perai for comparison...then you will know which is better....penangite!!!

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
