Here lies a steaming plate of…. Nasi Lemak. This could become a staple! It’s simple — rice with (from 12:00 going clockwise) marinated chicken drumsticks, sambal (fave hot chili sauce), fried crunchy anchovies, peanuts, cucumber and a fried egg. Delicious, filling and fairly “safe” if you’re picky about the meat you eat, like I am. Malaysia claims Nasi Lemak as its national dish and it is sometimes served steamed in banana leaves and traditionally eaten for breakfast. This plate was served at Bushra — an open air cafe on a corner in Kampong Glam, or Arab Street.
Just up the way, the vibrant colors and culture of Little India. I look forward to more walks through this part of town that changes with the time of day, time of year and amount of time on your hands.
