Bijan, KL - Succulent ayam goreng berempah first arrive at our table. This Malay-style fried chicken is never about the crunch, but the bold spicy flavours. Marinated overnight in rempah paste somehow makes the chicken extremely juicy, and then deep fried to intensify the flavours of the spices, predominantly turmeric. Serve with a tub of curry sauce on the side, you simply can’t stop at one piece.
Lebanese Potato Salad. So, so, so good. I made it with russet potatoes, and I think it would be better with red potatoes, but it was still terrific. I bought fresh mint from the farmer's market, so I've been looking for recipes to use it before it goes bad, and this is a great one. The lemon juice just completes the whole dish.
