So, dried anchovies:



Comes in curried form too:



It's good stuff. Unless you're allergic to it.

While we're on the subject of Malay food,



Nasi Lemak, meaning roughly "fat rice" in Malay. The rice is usually cooked with coconut or pandan, and eaten with what you see around it. Staple food for many in Malaysia, especially schoolkids.

Maggi can be served as wet or dry depending on what you're feeling like, one of the cool things about it.
Sounds like a pretty funny scene. Man, wouldn't have minded seeing your faces watching him do it!

So, what is this stuff exactly, other than the egg and rice? Are those anchovies on the top? Apple and some kind of sauce or chutney? Fish jerky?

That boiled egg looks nice. Boiled is basically the only way you can get me to eat egg.

Let's see, on top is anchovies and onions fried in chilli and spices, on the right is something called sambal (Sambal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), boiled egg, dried / fried fish, cucumber and boiled egg. Usually has raw peanuts too.

Oh, Wikipedia has an article on Nasi Lemak too: Nasi lemak - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Can't say it's the most appetising looking stuff as far as what I usually enjoy goes, but I'm sure it's nicer than I imagine it is.

It's probably an acquired taste. I daresay you'd be interested in this stuff:



It's called rendang. From Wikipedia: "Rendang is made from beef (or occasionally chicken, mutton, water buffalo meat, duck or vegetables like jackfruit or cassava) slowly cooked in coconut milk and spices for several hours until almost all the liquid is gone, leaving the meat coated in the spicy condiments. The cooking process changes from boiling to frying as the liquid evaporates. The slow cooking process allows the meat to absorb all the spices and to become tender. The spices may include ginger, galangal, turmeric leaf, lemon grass and chillies."

Rendang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Water buffalo meat? Sounds interesting.

I really like the spices they use. I'm not very good at eating red meat though, so yeah, maybe I'd go for one of those vegetable ones.

Well, mum apparently found a cheap place that does that well in the city, so there's another option for us to eat at if Greek and Indian fail us.

If made well, it's really, really, really good stuff. Occasionally it blows the back of your mouth out, but that's half the fun of eating it.

That sounds cool to me. I'm not particularly familiar with South East Asian food, in fact I wanted to delve into it a little bit more since everyone always talks about how great Thai is. A lot of far Eastern food places at food courts tend to blend together to me because of the sheer amount of them, but there's one I particularly enjoy which I'm pretty sure is Malay, which is encouraging.

Spicy food is great. But I have to keep training my spice tolerance, building it up - otherwise it dies down a little.
