Adam and Eve's Food Found in Kuching

Whenever a friend foreign to Malaysia asks you about Malaysian food, what comes to your mind? I'm pretty sure that nasi lemak will emerge on the top three of the list besides satay and roti canai.

What makes good nasi lemak? Well, to me, the rice must be cooked with freshly squeezed coconut milk. That's the foremost important. Secondly, the sambal has to have lots of anchovies and spicy and sweet enough. The rest are just the icing on the cake.

This is a plate of 'nasi lemak' special.

A plate of basic 'nasi lemak' usually comes with deep-fried anchovies and peanuts only.

A more deliberate plate of 'nasi lemak' sometimes comes with deep-fried whole-fish toddlers, and the 'sambal' is a standard spicy paste served with any type of 'nasi lemak.'

A 'nasi lemak' a la special normally comes with curry chicken, sometimes with curry lamb or curry beef too.

Alright. If your foreign friend asks you to cook a Malaysian dish, I think the first thing that comes to your mind is curry. And I'm pretty sure that the most common of Malaysian curry is the chicken curry.

Chicken curry in a clay pot is quite common way of serving it.

I like curry chicken with brinjals and the lady's fingers.

With all these spicy food, what is the best drink to wash them down with? The answer is definitely non other than the teh tarik!

A glass of 'teh tarik' is just perfect for a cool rainy day.

Where to find all these? I'm sure you can find them easily in most of the food outlets in Kuching, but I enjoyed this meal at the Eden Café of Kingwood Inn Hotel.

The Eden Café is quite cozy for a quiet lunch with a couple of good friends.

Hello Sifu.

Ahh no wonder it looks very familiar :) A bit pricier then most but as the pictures show, it's well worth it.

Just look at the sambal...
