It is common for travellers to representation a internal cuisine whenever they transport to a unfamiliar land. With a appearance of blurb tourism, however, it has turn utterly a plea to locate an eatery that serves authentic internal cuisine as against to food served to tourists. So where would one be means to find a grill portion affordable nonetheless authentic Malay cuisine in Kuala Lumpur?
The answer is Restaurant Kampung Melayu, conveniently located during a belligerent building of Low Yat Plaza, in a heart of Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur’s selling district. we had cooking there recently, pleasantness of Moola, a initial ever homegrown Cash-Back Lifestyle programme by ICT Utopia. Joining me on that day was Emily Tang of Sunrise Emily blog and all of us had a superb time and good laughs too, interjection to one sold dish. More on that later, though for now we can check out what Emily suspicion of Restaurant Kampung Melayu on her blog!
Why is affordable authentic Malay food that ambience good rather tough to find? Simply since of modernization and a change it brings with it, and maybe a time and bid taken to ready good Malay dishes. So we could suppose my pleasure to find myself face to face with some Malaysian favourites that evening.
Rice is an critical prejudiced of Malay cuisine, and served in many ways during Restaurant Kampung Melayu. We had a Mutton Claypot Biryani Rice, a Chicken Claypot Biryani and a Nasi Goreng Kampung, or encampment styled boiled rice. The biryani rice originates from a Indian subcontinent, and is a organisation favourite among Malaysians due to a incense and formidable reduction of tastes. Restaurant Kampung Melayu’s biryani tastes good though being overwhelmingly oily. The mutton was tender, while a duck was only right. Both were spicy, so those who are inexperienced to a feverishness should be aware of a sharp curry. The boiled rice was great, though once again counsel should be taken if we are not prejudiced to sharp food as this has manly chili padi influenced into a rice.
The rice dishes were accompanied by several unfeeling side dishes, including stir boiled cabbage, curry eggplant and churned preserved vegetables. These unfeeling dishes are customarily served with many Malay rice dishes and move a light and lovely ambience in contrariety to a abounding and flavorful rice dishes. The churned preserved vegetables, famous as acar, is really common and elementary plate to prepare, done with proposal cucumber, pineapple, onion and red chili preserved in vinegar. While sourish in taste, a plate is light and really refreshing.
We were also served with 3 categorical dishes – Daging Masak Merah, a sharp beef dish; Ikan Pari Bakar, sharp grilled ray; and Kailan Ikan Masin, stir boiled kalian with pickled fish. These dishes are meant to be taken with rice, customarily plain white rice, that is a tack for many Malaysians. The beef was tender, and had a sharp aftertaste, while a grilled ray was truly sharp and good grilled. The kalian was an engaging dish, a pickled fish providing a lot of flavour.
We also had dual opposite soups – a Tom Yam Soup, that is indeed a Thai dish, and a Sup Lidah, or Cow’s Tongue Soup. The Tom Yam is a favourite among Malaysians, and is a common underline during many Malay and Chinese eateries. The Cow’s Tongue Soup might sound rather daunting, due to a prejudiced of beef that it features, though is indeed rather of a sweetmeat in Malaysia. The soup is a transparent soup incorporating an collection of ingredients, including spices. It is amiable compared to any Tom Yam as it does not use chilli in a preparation. we have to acknowledge that we customarily drive transparent of offal and that a Cow’s Tongue Soup was left alone by a cooking celebration for a incomparable prejudiced of a evening. That is until one of a braver souls ventured for a bite, and to a surprise, rated it really favourably. That sparked everyone’s interest, and before we knew it, we finished adult dogmatic that a Cow’s Tongue Soup was one of a nicest surprises of a evening!
Restaurant Kampung Melayu also offers standard Malaysian favourites like Satay and Otak-Otak. Satay, we consider would need no genuine introduction, being utterly good famous via a world. A elementary beef dish, satay is cooking grilled beef skewers served with peanut salsa accompanied with cucumber and onion slices. Otak-otak is sharp fish pulp wrapped in leaves that are afterwards grilled over an open fire. The Satay and Otak-otak served during Restaurant Kampung Melayu were tasty and are a good introduction to Malay cuisine.
During a visit, we also had a ambience of Roti Tissue, a honeyed movement of a Roti Canai, an Indian bread. The Roti Tissue is a paper skinny roti canai that is flavoured with sugarine and precipitated milk. Different restaurants offer a roti hankie in opposite ways, Restaurant Kampung Melayu serves theirs in a cone shape. Finally, to hang adult a evening, we had some lovely honeyed lassi and mango lassi, as good as internal shaved ice desserts famous as ABC or Ais Batu Campur, and a fruity variant, a ABC Mango.
