Spice up your life (2)…

Mery Sia dropped by my regular Bandong Malay kuih-muih stall and bought the nasi lemak there but she complained that it was not spicy. I don’t know which one she bought but this one that I used to buy all the time in the past was extra spicy (RM1.50)…

….or at least to me (and even my parents’ Indon maid), it was. Perhaps, she likes things a lot spicier so it wasn’t quite up to her standard.

Well, lately, they have the pandan nasi lemak…

…also selling at RM1.50 a packet. I’m not sure whether this is made by the same person but I do find that it is nice as well and spicy enough for me. It used to look greener though…on the previous occasions that I bought this for breakfast.

Then, there came another version with sambal sotong

…also selling at RM1.50 packet. I love the sambal but unfortunately, you get very little kacang (peanuts) and fried ikan bilis (anchovies)…and there is just one thick slice of cucumber. They do give that bit of hardboiled egg though – like in the case of the rest…and there is one teeny-weeny bit of salted fish too.

Well, whatever it is, I have not come across any nasi lemak that is better and just as cheap elsewhere in town so until I do, I will just have to stick to these.
