20 Dapao : Ilham Nasi Kukus, Mutiara Damansara

It was boasted on the flyer - Sambal belacan yang 'hot & kicking' pasti akan membuat anda berpeluh! (Chilli so spicy that you will surely sweat!)

That's precisely how it went down with me as I tucked into my nasi kukus (steamed rice) that came packed with a large piece of spiced fried chicken, pineapple and anchovies on the side. My rice was flooded with plain curry gravy and a shrimp paste chilli condiment that had quite a bit of seeds in it.
 
Nasi Kukus with Pineapple and Anchovies

Besides RM6, this nasi kukus adventure cost me many tissues and several sips of chilled water. I would have thrown in the towel had it not tasted oh-so-marvelous. I knew I was punishing myself, really. My tongue was burning. Funnily, all I could think of was, "Yum, yum, yum!". I couldn't stop myself!

Have you ever been in a situation where you go, "I can't do this anymore! " , but strive on anyway? Yep, exactly how I felt. If only this can-do spirit extended to the gym..sigh!

Spicy Sambal Belacan and Curry Gravy

I rate this as one of the best meals I'd ever dapao-ed home, even if beads of sweat had rolled down the sides of my slightly flushed cheeks.

Is there a Nasi Kukus stall which you frequent, that you would describe as 'ada kick' (got kick)?  Do share the details with me here because I'm always game for good food, and will hunt it down if I were in the area!

Dapao = takeaway.

  2. Naso kukus? Just plain white rice??

    Hmm. I wouldnt mind trying too although I do not have high tolerance for spiciness. I love spicy food though. Just that I know I do not have that high tolerance.

    1. Yes, plain white steamed rice, Rose, sometimes made fragrant with pandan. Same here on the tolerance level - that's why I had so many sips of water ..lol! ^.^

  6. Sharon, I love steamed rice, chicken wings (barbecued, baked or fried and not too spicy), and pineapple! In fact, I wanted to tell you that I love the name of your blog. Why? Because I love elephants and mangoes! :) Great post, and I love your photos.
