In my previous post, I have posted about Nasi Kukus Harimau Menangis (https://ecency.com/hive-141359/@rosmadirazali/nasi-kukus-harimau-menangis-crying) and Nasi Kukus Sotong (https://ecency.com/hive-141359/@rosmadirazali/nasik-kukus-sotong-goreng-fried)
For yesterday lunch, I go to the same shop. But this time I tried their Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah. Instead of getting my lunch for take-away, this time I went and dine-in there.
Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah = Steamed Rice with Herbs Chicken
When I was there, the place is crowded with customers, but there were an empty table. Joining me for lunch was @irmeyhamidi and both of my daughters. The came all the way from Subang Perdana to my office to have lunch with me 😁
At first, I wanted to bring them to Madam Kwan, but the restaurant was fully booked. So the next place that I have in mind was either Sushi King or Nasi Kukus Tonggek.
Long story short, we decided to get our lunch at Nasi Kukus Tonggek. @irmeyhamidi ordered Nasi Kukus Ikan Keli (steam rice with fried cat fish) and I ordered Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah (steam rice with herbs chicken).
During my previous visit here, dine-in was not allowed, and the shop is only open for take away. This is my first time seeing the way Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah being prepared for dine-in customers.
The steam rice and herbs chicken being prepared by putting it inside a metal cylinder as shown in below picture. Next, the curry is poured on top of the rice and herb chicken inside the metal cylinder.
There were few slices of cucumber and a smidge of chili paste put beside the metal cylinder. You need to lift and slowly shake the metal cylinder in order to pour out the contents inside the metal cylinder.
I was being extra careful when taking out the content because the steam rice and the curry was really hot. I even had a hard time holding the metal cylinder. I think this is one thing that the shop owner / crew need to re-look at. This can turn to be an accident waiting to happen.
My first attempt was not successful because I'm not able to hold the metal cylinder properly due to the heat. I waited for about 10 minutes before I try it once again.
The second time, I am able to pour out the steam rice 😁 After all of the content was poured out, I proceed to mixed the curry evenly with the steamed rice. What I can describe about the taste is the herb chicken was really tender and juicy, and it goes really well with the steam rice and curry.
The total price for I and my wife lunch was 4.5USD. For my next trip there, I for sure will bring my own cutlery set. I was given a plastic spoon and fork. It was challenging to eat the chicken using those plastic cutlery.
