Fried Chicken Nasi Lemak

Fried Chicken Nasi Lemak at Madam Tang, Bishop’s Gate Road

Nasi lemak is also a very popular Malay dish that that can be found in Kuching and is a breakfast and lunchtime favorite. The term “nasi lemak” literally means “rich rice” as coconut milk is added to the rice as it is being cooked giving it a pleasant and mouth watering aroma. The rice is often accompanied by a half slice of hard boiled egg, “sambal belacan” (spicy prawn paste), peanuts, crunchy anchovies (sometimes a whole fried fish) and sliced cucumber. Other nasi lemak offerings also include fried chicken, chicken curry or beef rendang depending on the shop offering the dish. Be sure to sample this dish when you get the chance!
