Ham & Eggs............

Uncle Lim’s Café @ Ikano Power Centre, Mutiara Damansara

Friday, May 1, 2009

Nowadays, the Kopitiam can rightfully claim to be a part of the history and the melting pot culture of modern Malaysia and even Singapore. The ever-present Kopitiam had long been the social focal point for the peoples of this region. Leisure time was enjoyed with friends over cups of freshly brewed aromatic kopi; important decisions were often made; personal and communal feuds were amicably settled. Such were the significant roles played by the humble Kopitiam apart from serving wholesome and affordable traditional fare.
So this particular Kopitiam, Uncle Lim’s in Ikano serves good coffee and Malaysian food. Uncle Lim’s is about modernizing the Kopitiam whilst preserving its old charm. And this particular visit is to try their Nasi Lemak… Nasi Lemak is indeed one of the best loved staple foods in Malaysia. Various versions are available, from the simplest form (those RM1 per packet nasi lemaks) to the more elaborate types where you can pick and choose your dishes to go with the rice.

In Uncle Lim’s, they offer Nasi Lemak serve in Chicken Rendang or Fried Chicken Drumstick, which comes with the usual stuff and a generous amount of sambal squid. Rice is fragrant and the sambal is fiery hot. The Rendang Chicken is alright thought with nice tender meat. By the way, the Fried Chicken is crispy, may need more improvement.

This kopitiam I have try few year ago at Subang Parade and there otak-otak is quite nice. If just compare with coffee, I still prefer Old Town.
