Something old, something new…

This is new at my regular Bandong stall in the morning…

Nasi lemak cute 1

One of the girls there called it “nasi lemak cute”. Wrapped in plastic instead of the usual brown paper, it is nicely-rounded and shaped like a burger.

Inside, there are thin strips of omelette slices, some kacang (groundnuts) and a salted fish besides the rice and the sambal.

There are no ikan bilis (dried anchovies) though but I guess the salted fish is supposed to be the replacement. This is also priced at RM1.50 like the rest and I would say that it tastes more or less the same.

Now, this is something new as well – the muruku


…but do not bother buying as it is bland and hard. I bought one packet at RM1.00 to try and after a bite of two, I threw the rest away.

Moving on from that, the bakwan that I blogged about not too long ago now comes with a little plastic bag of very nice sambal

Bakwan plus sambal

I don’t know what they use to make it but I could sense a little bit of rojak paste and I thought it was very nice.

The Malay food stall at Bandong around lunchtime is certainly getting very popular as I would see lots of people there whenever I drop by. There has not been anything new there though – you may see them alternating between the usual fare that  they sell like this very nice sambal petai, for instance…

Well, if you’ve never sampled any of the things they sell, do drop by and give it a try. I assure you that you would find most of what they have to be very nice and satisfying…
