Nasi Lemak: Malaysian’s Favorite Dish

If there is one dish which represents Malaysia, I think we Malaysians will pick Nasi Lemak to be THE ONE! A basic plate of nasi lemak can be rather plain but the spices that adorn this dish simply, unforgettable! Fried anchovies, eggs, cucumbers, sambal and fragrant rice infused with coconut milk….seriously, tell me what is there to not like about this dish?! Add rendang or any other dishes such as fried chicken, fried fish or curry beef, I bet this dish will blow your mind.
