Nasi Lemak

Fat Butter’s nasi lemak (RM12.90) is decent; the rice is fresh, warm & moist, fairly fragrant but perhaps not as punchy as some might seek in flavor. The accompaniments get passing grades.

Laksa Mee Pantai Remis

Laksa Mee Pantai Remis (RM8.90), a recipe from Perak’s coastal town. Fans of soupy-spicy prawn mee might like to give this a shot; otherwise, other Malaysian pleasures like Mee Muar, ubi kayu kukus, keropok lekor & rojak buah are available.
