Nasi Lemak

Last night, I got the chance to finally try this little restaurant I always pass by on the 2nd level East Lane of my home mall -- Robinson's Galleria. I have been meaning to experience their food because I always see that it's full of people -- always a good sign when eyeing a novel diner.

Nasi Lemak mainly serves Hainanese, Malaysian, and Thai cuisine although in reality it's called Nasi Lemak Authentic Singaporean Restaurant. Interestingly, at least according to Wikipedia, Nasi Lemak means "a fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and "pandan" leaf commonly found in Malaysia, where it is considered the national dish".

Since most of their dishes are good for sharing, my friend Ghea and I tried their Penang Char Kway Teow for 265Php which, even with our best effort, we weren't able to finish. Not that it's not good, it's just that it's barely one week before the wedding and we're so careful to maintain the waistline we have been wanting to and have already achieved. (She's one of the secondary sponsors) Lol! Anyway, this is mainly spiced noodles with very savory pork, shrimp, and bean sprouts. It was too tasty for my liking I was tempted to eat rice on the side!

Reggie got himself this Singapore Laksa for 275Php. And yes, he finished it on his own and even got some tummy space left to savour the remains of our Kway Teow.  Singapore Laksa is basically a noodle dish with curry soup. It also has egg, shrimps, and fishballs (or squid balls?). I like its kind of spicy than that of Penang Char Kway Teow -- very subtle amidst a hint of creaminess.

According to Munchpunch, currently, this is their only branch. I'm a happy kid to be near this mall because I'm definitely going back here to try the other side of their menu.

  1. Reading your post, I just realized I am not that big a fan of Asian food. I eat Chinese (at Flavors of China usually) but that's about it. Given a choice between Japanese or Italian cuisine, I'd go for the pizza and pasta without batting an eye.

    1. Ok reading your comment, I just realized I have not exactly categorized the food I eat. Haha I love them all. But if I really have to choose, I'd go with pasta any day. :) But no pizza.

  2. The food looks deli! I want to try cooking Laksa for hubby this weekend. He will surely love the dish. :-)

  3. We shall return!^___^
    Mentioning our waistline is kinda offensive! lol XD


Thanks for the visit :)
Leave me something and I might just love you forever ♥
