The simple food I miss

by Volvoxx On November 11, 2010 5:34 PM
  1. I miss Nasi Goreng Cendawan from that friendly malay stall in Siswa, MMU. Their chicken rice is kinda awesome too (for those who fancy their style of sticky somewhat glutenous rice). The owners are really really nice people. One will often ask if I'm from Korea/Japan, then say "Ur BM banyak bagus ya". Another will tease me that I'm still around :P ...Once I forgot to go ATM machine before 'tapau'-ing my lunch. He went and "takpe takpe...besok baru bayar" eventho I said I'd go down and tekan some cash out to pay in a bit. The next day, I went back there to tapau and makan....he refuse to accept my money. "Saya dah halalkan :) " ....awesome people. I miss them, and the food.
  2. I also miss the next stall's 'middle eastern' food...ESPECIALLY the kebab. The kebab's kinda hard to 'catch'. Either I'll be too occupied with classes (that tend to flock to the 10-2pm slots) or I don't wake up early enough to go, or is too lazy to move my ass to Siswa to tapau. And they finish quite fast. Once I went there around 12.30 noon and they were OUT! /sad. I love to have the rice, with the kebab meat, and their mayo. Add the vege and japanese tofu. Yum. Their fried chicken ain't too bad too. Once, they had some debating competition (when QJ and I first hooked up I think) and they ordered too much of the rice and friend chicken. Boy did we have a field day 'curi makan' the leftover chicken.
  3. The curry 'mix' rice from food court is pretty awesome. I went there last weekend with QJ, had lunch there, and cheekily took a picture of my platter, and MMSed to Shindee saying "Yum." ...I didn't even say where I was, or that I had gone Melaka that weekend. She instantly replied "MY FAVOURITE CURRY RICE!" Hahaha!
  4. I also miss banana leaf rice. One's from the indian shop in between MMU Corner and (Apollo?). There's one guy there who would always come and serve us. He'd ask the same question everytime: "Tak bawak you mia kawan-kawan ka?" Hahaha. Saravanan's banana leaf is good too. My only problem is that if I order a plate of meat, I can't finish it myself. Oh the banana leaf shop near Kerjasama shoplot row is pretty good too.
  5. Nasi Goreng Thai from that stall in Ixora food court. I don't know if they are still around (cuz I haven't gone there for a long LONG time). Love the raw kacang panjang and carrots and egg and yellow fried rice. And the sambal that goes with them. 
  6. I MISS MISS MISS MISS MISS MISS 886's MI HUN KUEH. Nothing can express how much I miss this! OMG SUKA!
  7. I love 886's fried rice too. Really fried very well but because of my infatuation with #6, I never order it. I always steal QJ's.  Nyehehe.
  8. The duck rice in the corner shop near food court (they changed stalls ade...not there nemore :( ). Great portion, great taste.
  9. Chicken/duck/roast pork/char siu rice from 'Pa Bai'. Yums
  10. Vege shop! (omg how could I forgot). Butter fried mushroom, yam basket, mixed rice, tofu rice.

So there. A list of 10 items I love in Bukit Beruang area, that I probably wouldn't bring some guest/visitors that I'll bring to Melaka...but love so much still. I guess its the fond memories I had there and the lunch/dinner company I had then that brings back thoughts to those places.

p/s: Its a snack so I guess it doesn't really count...but the 'bonda' kueh from the indian stall near Vege shop there...kicks ass.
pp/s: I forgot the awesome nasi lemak kukus stall in food court for dinner. I guess that makes it 11 things then :P

    Wow, your quite adventurous. I only miss a few, like Black Pepper Chicken at the old RTM, the burger and hotdog stall infront of PBBU and PS Nasi Goreng Ayam stall ( always order the Nasi Goreng Cina, yummy ! ;9 )
