and chefs have to raise their game, relooking at viable in-house
specialities that can withstand the tricky transportation journey to the intended destination without compromising the eventual taste quality too much.
‘tried and tested’ food takeaways and delivery service providers are worth considering if you are tired of the heat and wish to get out of the home
Nasi Lemak Lah!
This nasi lemak specialist comes recommended by a foodie friend. Initially I was sceptical until I tasted the offerings myself. From there on I was won over - proof of the pudding being in the eating you know?
rice has nice discernible coconut milk aroma, the fried anchovies and
peanuts, crispy without being burnt and the sliced cucumber, fresh and crunchy. Most
importantly, the sambal hits the spot with its balanced sweet-hot nuances. If you order the fried lemongrass chicken, be sure to sprinkle on those crispy bits from the fried chook to the rice to amp up the deliciousness.
My favourites are Nasi
Lemak Ayam Goreng Serai (RM13.90), Nasi Lemak Chicken Curry (RM14.90) and Nasi
Lemak Sambal Sotong (RM14.90) but seriously, my family members who had tried the sambal sotong and mutton curry
can vouch they ain't too shabby either.

The Oriental Group
While dine-in is now
permitted with compulsory SOPs in place, the house
specialities of this established Chinese restaurant group can be savoured in the comfort of
We tried the excellent
Mother’s Day Set (RM398 nett for 6 persons) from Oriental Landmark: Boston
Lobster Guangdong Style, Braised Soon Hock with Yam, Smoked Farm Chicken, Fried
Rice with Teochew Spicy Sauce and Stir-fried Seasonal Vegetables with Garlic.
Portions were generous
and most importantly, the food is packed with care to ensure the taste quality
stays close to that of dining-in at the restaurant. Kudos to the culinary team
for stepping up their game under such trying circumstances.
Also available for
takeaway and delivery include the trademark Oriental Group’s Chargrilled
Iberico Pork Ribs (RM18/100g), four different preparations of Boston Lobster
(RM220, 1.2-1.4kg each) Dim Sum (easy heat and eat) and Premium Japanese Dried
Scallop Dumpling (RM48) among others. To enhance noodles or fried rice, served
as a complementing dip for seafood and other dishes, you’d find the Teochew
Spicy Sauce (RM28) a great condiment for the pantry.
Xiao Long Kan
It was such a novelty experience, having Xiao Long Kan HotPot at home. This was enhanced by the loan of Xiao Long Kan's signature dual-section brass Hotpot + Induction Cooker (shown in pix below).
We opted for the resto's famous Tomato broth and the Mushroom broth - both are distinctive in their own way when eaten with the various assortment of ingredients: meat slices, chewy noodle strips, lobster and meat balls, greens, etc.

We give thumbs
up to the hearty and filling portions of Nasi Tomato and Ayam Masak Merah with

Kelapa Parut Ikan & Keropok (RM18) featured in Hotel Maya Kuala Lumpur's
Each set comes
in compartmentalised containers so there’s no mess and the different
specialities remain distinctly delicious. The Salmon Teriyaki set with Japanese
rice, mesclun salad and miso soup (RM28) also scores well since it is a
complete, balanced meal by itself. The huge jarred Chickpeas and Corn Kernels
with Feta Cheese & Green Salad (RM23) is substantial enough to feed a
family of 2-3 depending on the voraciousness of your appetite.
