‘Nasi Lemak’ is Malaysia’s national food. The food in Malaysia has so much variety, but to understand the delicious food you need to come to Malaysia. This article sourced from Mark Wiens site Migrationology, his review is superb that makes me want to go there, I will go there after this MCO inshaallah.
If you come to Malaysia and need to try Nasi Lemak, you need to go to Nasi Lemak Tangling. The reason is the chef uses coconut milk to soften the rice, and then adds pandan leaf as well – it’s this combination that gives nasi lemak both its soft texture, and that gentle fragrance.
Usually serving it in a banana leaf you to-go wrapper, some common ingredients that top this coconut rice include something salty, something crunchy, and a sour and spicy sambal to tie it all together.
I can’t add more about the food, you need to go by yourself and try it!
