What strange culinary voodoo has Lexy wrought? A Jamaican-themed supper club hosted by witchy-woman cook Lex Subramaniam brought a bit of Kingston to Kuala Lumpur this month, leaving guests in a Caribbean state of stomach.
Jerks seem most welcome here, of the spice-rubbed chicken-wing variety, of course.
Curry goat with pumpkin, almost deliciously surreal enough to have us pattering in Patois.
Jamaica's informal national dish, Rice & Peas, nicknamed 'Coat of Arms,' a Sunday lunch staple for island inhabitants. Rice stewed with coconut milk & kidney beans.
Spicy coleslaw & roti breads cast a satisfying spell on our stuffed stomachs.
Banana fritters, avocado mango salsa & lemon compote: it's a deluge of delights.
Creamy coconut rice pudding. A little bit, just enough, just right.
Lulled by hypnotic reggae beats & copious booze that included rum cocktails & homemade chocolate vodka, we could happily have slept over at Sentul's FHL Sports biking store, the home of Lexy's supper clubs.
This theme isn't random; Lexy spent time in Brixton, absorbing the London district's Jamaican influences sufficiently to recreate the flavors & textures of this gastronomic exotica.
