Wawan Kopitiam @ Berjaya Times Square, KL

Who else is capable of releasing mouth watering food reviews at an hour like this? It's none other than Rosalyn Tan of course!

Again, I had the previllege of following another blogger Stephanie Liah for a food review. This time, it's at Wawan Kopitiam in Berjaya Times Square, KL (1st Floor, located directly opposite to Watson's.)

Before the food could capture my attention, the interior design of the "kopitiam" did. By the way, "kopitiam" is a term used here in Malaysia which directly translates as "coffee shop" although it is widely known to be as a "food shop".

What's so special about the interior design of this "kopitiam"? The wood used, as you can see in the pictures above, are recycled from old "kampung" houses.

Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken. 

Nasi Lemak with Rendang.
As the Malays would say, "lain daripada yang lain".
Which can simply be translated as simply unique.

And we were told by the owner of this little "kopitiam" that during the olden days, the Chinese community in Malaysia (Malaya, then?) used to eat Nasi Lemak like this - with the salted fish.
Can authenticity get any accurate than this?

These are the "rempah" or spices used to create the below:

Curry chicken the-malaysian-way!

Additional sitting area made of wood, outside the kopitiam.

Stephanie is absolutely contented with her food!

Another picture of the Nasi Lemak with Rendang....

A Malaysian delight which most foreigners may not enjoy.
Google it, nevertheless!

The owner also took some time to explain to Steph and I about how the rice is being prepared.
Nasi "kukus" as it is known in Bahasa Malaysia; simply means the rice is steamed and not done in ways most other restaurants would have it.

As for the bread, it is being sliced into half and toasted.
That way, one is able to taste the filling of the bread even more.
E.g. sometimes, I'll ask for more butter or more "kaya" when dining at a certain restaurant simply because the bread is too thick and I'll feel as if I am eating more bread than the filling.

Me with full concentration on the food.
Almost nothing in the world can replace how I feel towards food.
The unconditional love I have towards it.
The need for it every 2-3hours, alright let's stop here.

Last but not the least, we have the NASI LEMAK SAMBAL SOTONG which is my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE EVERY DAMN MORNING!

Yesss.... every damn morning!

I shall end my blog post sweetly with the link below:
