Workmate J and I decided to take advantage of a sunny day and walk to Munch Terrace to get their Friday special – nasi lemak. It was as good as ever, with sambal, a large deep-fried battered chicken wing, ikan bilis (little fish) with peanuts, fried egg, achar (pickled vegetables), otak-otak, and of course, a delicious dome of fragrant coconut rice.
J dug into her egg and discovered, to her joy, that the egg yolk was still soft. So of course I had to check my egg for myself. Prodding revealed that my egg yolk was pleasingly gooey too! My egg was quite spicy as it was adorned with sambal. I also got a lot of the fried fluffy crusty bits from the pan. Not good for me but yummy.
We were pleased to see they now sell root beer at Munch – though I wish it was A&W root beer. Still, this Cheers root beer went very well with nasi lemak. It’s funny, I struggle to finish a can of soft drink normally, but when it’s root beer, I get through the can with no trouble at all, and then usually want more.
Sorry I haven’t replied to comments and emails recently – I’ve been very busy at work and finding it hard to fit everything into my day. If only I had time to just blog all day… such a shame one needs money to live.
