Malay brunch

On the  lateish morning  of the first of May, we went out to  pick up some nasi lemak, creamy rice, from reputed  Village Park at Damansara, Petaling Jaya.

Tables outside and inside were full of people enjoying their breakfast and day off.

The queues for ordering and paying were long, but once the order was placed, procedures were immediate.

Of course, as a typical Asian breakfast dish, nasi lemak is savoury and hot. It is composed by a generous amount of rice cooked in coconut milk and served with peanuts, anchovies, sliced cucumber, half an egg and sambal, a spicy sauce. It all comes wrapped in a banana leaf, which has an indisputably decorative and appetizing finishing effect.

Piscivores and carnivores can indulge in nasi lemak accompanied with chicken, fish or beef. No porc, please, as this is a predominantly Muslim country.

For tea-time cravings, nothing better than some seri muka, meaning beautiful face, made of glutinous rice and a coconut milk pudding containing pandan leaf juice for the green colour and special aroma. Other options include curry puffs, tapioca cake, or grilled pandan leaf rice-wraps.

What do you say? It looks quite tasty, la?
