I am starting a tag here.. wanted to write about this for some time.. but at last I think its a great tag to do as well..
Food that I could remember… as long as I live… until recet day I mean.. 😀
1. Nasi minyak at Tanjung Api
I dont know if it still available, but it was at one of those stores that sells breakfast at Jeti Tanjung Api, where all the fishes are up every evening. People came here to get fresh fish, to fish or to eat as well. Fishermen hang around here at times. I remembered my dad took me to the store, to eat nasi minyak, damn those were my favorites. In Kuantan, we ate nasi minyak for breakfast, and for weddings, it is usually more than usual, maybe nasi minyak hujan panas. The nasi minyak here was eaten with ayam masak merah, or ayam kari with acar timun and nenas.. it is really yummy.. until today, I couldnt found any nasi minyak tastes as good as this one.
2. Mee goreng and sambal at SMART
Yup, it was the foodstall food at my canteen, at SMART – Sek Men Abdul Rahman Talib Kuantan. This canteen really does serves yummy food, so irony with the fact that foodstalls at canteen serves crap. I usually pour a lot of sambal onto the mee goreng, and add with ayam goreng. It was a simple mee goreng, put seriously I could remember it till today.
3. Mee sup, also at SMART
Told ya they serves yummy food. Mee soup with sambal cili kicap.. wow.. yummy.. we ended up throwing chicken bones to the boys after those meal.. naughty huh?????
4. Mee goreng at MRSM Jasin Melaka
It was not the canteen food.. sorry dear school… nothing from your dewan makan touch my heart.. (hahaah) It was those mee goreng made by, makcik.. errr owwhh I forgot, which makcik, but it was sold after prep class every night. almsot every night. People would rush and ran to get it, as it usually finish very early. sometimes, you have to have a representative to get it for you.. it was like the ‘have to have’ food every night.
5. Nasi lemak zaman
Also available only in Kuantan. There was a very big restaurant, near the old Kuantan airport, and it was very very famous that serves nasi lemak in banana leaves. Every morning you could see the front of the restaurant was jammed up with cars, lorries, and the restaurant, which was huge, was crowded with people! You have to get into the kitchen to get the nasi lemak in daun pisang on your own, or else you’ll be left behind. All the waitresses are very very very busy. It was famous as it is located along the way to leave Kuantan for KL or Temerloh. I dont know how it is doing today as there was a new highway and this is not anymore the main entrance into Kuantan. At first this restaurant only sells nasi lemak, can u imagine, people came just for nasi lemak. After sometimes, they have other things as well, maybe to be more competetive.. oh I wish I could have one pack of Nasi Lemak Zaman.
6. Nasi tomato at Canteen C, UIA PJ
Was it called the Canteen C? I cant remember, but it was the jejantas canteen – thats what we called it, as it was on the jejantas above the road. There was this stall, at the end, selling nasi tomato and ayam goreng. (maybe they are selling more than that, but that was what I always buy) I remember buying those nasi tomato, ask for the ayam goreng and some kerak. And add with their masak merah gravy.. oww yummy.. I think Mye, Riza and Zatul should remember this.. we always bought them after classess to have it in our kolej – Kolej Fatimah Azzahraa tak de canteen remember???
7. Ikan Keli Bakar at Kolej Hafsa
Seriously cant be forgotten.. those ikan keli bakar and air asam.. mashallah.. sedapnyaaaaa…. (air teh ais dia pun sedap) uhukuhukuhuk… there is where I learnt to eat ikan keli. Never had any back in my home town. But those ikan bakar were great, we could the smell of they grilling it from far… I remembered everything from their canteen in nice as well – teringat bila time I got sick, Mye would buy me food from the canteen, and she never get it wrong.. the only person sho exactly know what I eat, and how i eat…
8. Red ruby at KLCC foodcourt
I think it is the best desert I ever had.. it was some kind adik beradik cendol, but in it was red thingie 9the red ruby thing) made out of err. I cant remember, with slices of jackfruit. all in cold coconut milk.. my husband will try and get it, whenever we went to KLCC (whihc was like, ermm once a year now) hmm yummmmieeee
9. Nasi lemak and char kuey tiaw at Mali
It was at wangsa maju – not sure whether it is still there. But it was the best char kuey tiaw I have ever eaten. Their nasi lemak and fried chicken was special too
(errgh I’m trying to make it 10)
10. Nasi with pecelele and bergedil and fanta merah!!!
Yeah!!! that complete my list!!! It was our favourite food (or among those I could gulp) during our short study in Indonesia. I had fanta merah every day! I could remember the tastes, as it came together with good memories of Studio 99 members being together. When you were away from home, you could know who your true friends really are. And thats how I remembered how happy we were eating nasi pecelele froun our food pack.
