Kukus Stim Habis! @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail

Kukus casts the limelight on Malaysia's quintessential rice platter, nasi lemak, featuring freshly steamed basmati grains, aromatic with coconut milk & accessorised with all the imperative anchovies, peanuts, fried chicken & water spinach, plus a customisable array of add-ons, from fried & boiled eggs to Kukus' true secret weapon: Four tasty types of sambal tumis.

Try to sample each of the sambals (RM1 per serving); every one is distinct & delightfully delicious, with well-balanced flavours & rich textures - the spicy tebaboh, savoury la forfo, non-spicy adek & vegetarian mambang with a coconut base. The sauces play a strong role in elevating the nasi lemak, which in its most basic form is served here with kangkung & timun for RM2.50. Other robust sides include sambal sotong (RM5.50), kari kapitan ayam (RM4.50) & - cockle alert! - sambal kerang (RM6.50).

  2. The nasi lemak platter looks very satisfying and filling for one. May I know how much is the platter minus the RM4 for the four sauces? And I do like a cockle alert! :D Kukus Stim Habis is fine....as long as it's not Kukus Nasi Habis! XD

    1. Contact.ewew: the platter i had was a bit abnormal, but the outlet offers an 'economy' platter with nasi lemak, half a boiled egg, one sambal, kangkung, ikan bilis, bilis & kacang for RM5.90. if you make it RM10.90, you can upgrade it to a full egg and have a piece of fried chicken too. so basically, there are two kinds of platters available - without fried chicken for RM5.90, with fried chicken for RM10.90 :) yes, i was very happy to see cockles on the menu. and they coincidentally had a fresh batch ready when we arrived. i do wonder if they have enough stock of rice etc to last them the entire day until 8pm! :D

    2. For those that run out of sambal during your meal, the second sambal helping is on the house but the third one is chargeable :)

    1. Rebecca: yeah, i think the owners have done their homework, so prices here are pretty much in line with expectations ;) hmmm, it's not quite cosy enough to linger for more than 30-45 minutes though, since people are walking in and out all the time, and it might get very crowded during peak meal times ;)

    2. The set for Alakazam has been repriced at RM15.90 now due to feedback that people prefer to have the whole leg ! As we're also using a Medium sized whole leg as opposed to a Small sized one offered by Village Park based on request, hence the price increase. Alas, the set now comes with 6 choices of drinks instead of the initial 2 too :) Rebecca, best time to do some writing would be between the hours of 3pm-5pm which would be our most quiet period. Also, to update our operating hours, we're now open daily from 9am-9pm !

  7. Looks like a party on a "dulang" so delish looking and the portion seems fair too.
