Ikat Perut? Pilihan Menu Super Murah, Sedap Dan Berkhasiat

Sediakan payung sebelum hujan. Berjimatlah agar kita dapat bertahan dalam menangani kesan kejatuhan ekonomi dunia yang drastik akibat wabak Covid-19.

Ramai yang sudah dan bakal hilang punca pendapatan, terpaksa bercuti tanpa gaji, dipotong gaji dan mungkin hilang pekerjaan jika keadaan ekonomi dunia bertambah teruk.

Mulakan perancangan awal, amalkan sikap yang positif serta sentiasa bersyukur atas apa yang kita ada dan sentiasa belajar untuk mengadaptasi cara hidup kita bersesuaian dengan keadaan semasa.

Itulah yang kami lakukan untuk menyambung kehidupan setelah kami hilang punca pendapatan setelah arwah ayah meninggalkan kami hampir 2 tahun yang lalu.

Tepung lebih murah daripada biskut, beras lebih murah dan lebih berkhasiat daripada mee segera, begitu juga tahu telor sangat murah harganya. Kita mesti bijak memilih bahan makanan yang murah tetapi berkhasiat.

Kami suka sup campuran kacang kuda, dal, lobak merah dan kentang yang lazat serta senang untuk disediakan. Begitu juga dengan berbagai roti buatan ibu yang boleh dimakan bersama ulam organik tanaman kakak yang dijadikan salad. Semuanya murah dan berkhasiat.

Daun kaduk goreng tepung boleh menggantikan ikan atau ayam, daun murunggai yang amat tinggi khasiatnya boleh dijadikan berbagai hidangan manakala daun bawang juga boleh digunakan dalam berbagai masakan.

Kakak-kakak menanam beberapa tanaman yang boleh dimakan dan senang dijaga seperti daun kaduk, kangkung, murunggai atau kelor, daun bawang dan sebagainya yang membantu menjimatkan perbelanjaan kami. Adakalanya tumbuh pohon tomato, cili dan lain-lain tanaman daripada kompos kakak.

Walaupun ayam, ikan atau daging bukan lagi lauk harian kami sejak ketiadaan ayah, namun kami masih mampu menikmati makanan yang lazat dan berkhasiat. Kami tetap bahagia walaupun ada kalanya kami makan berlauk sayur sahaja atau hanya ditambah ikan kering, ikan bilis atau telur.

Galak "Social Distance": Kedai Nasi Kandar Ini Perkenalkan "Drive Thru"

Setakat laporan terkini, seramai 1,183 orang telah disahkan positif Covid-19, manakala 9 orang telah terkorban akibat penyakit ini.

Walaupun kerajaan telah melaksanakan Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan di seluruh negara, namun masih ada yang gagal mematuhinya.

Memerhati laporan media, “membeli makanan” ialah di antara jawapan paling popular apabila ditanya kenapa mereka perlu keluar dari rumah semasa Perintah Kawalan Pergerakan ini.

Walaupun kini restoran dan kedai makan hanya dibenarkan menjual makanan yang dibungkus atau menyediakan perkhidmatan penghantaran makanan, namun orang awam yang beratur untuk membeli makanan seakan-akan menyebabkan “mass gathering” secara tidak sengaja pada ketika terdapat ramai pelanggan yang beratur.

Idea kreatif Restoran LC Putrajaya dalam usaha untuk menggalakkan amalan “social distancing” dalam usaha menangani wabak Covid-19 telah menarik perhatian saya.

Sebagai penyelesaiannya, mereka telah menyediakan perkhidmatan pandu lalu atau “drive thru” di mana pelanggan hanya perlu mengehon untuk membuat pesanan.

Dari laman Facebook LC Restaurant Putrajaya.

Memetik laporan The Star, pengurus restoran ini berkata, mereka tidak pernah menyediakan perkhidmatan tersebut sebelum ini.

“Bagi perkhidmatan pandu lalu, pekerja kami akan mengambil pesanan daripada pelanggan yang berhenti di hadapan restoran kami, dan menghantar pesanan mereka dengan sendiri. Maka mereka tidak perlu keluar dari kenderaan mereka.

“Kami juga menyediakan perkhidmatan penghantaran bagi makan tengah hari dan makan malam bagi mereka yang membuat prapesanan, dengan caj 50 sen bagi setiap item.”

The Star – “Putrajaya eateries told to put away tables and chairs” – (Terjemahan)

Semoga seluruh rakyat Malaysia terus mematuhi nasihat kerajaan persekutuan dalam usaha untuk memerangi penularan wabak Covid-19.

Tanpa kerjasama seluruh penduduk di negara ini, segala usaha kerajaan akan menjadi sia-sia.

The Best Sate Kambing!

Looking for a very delicious sate kambing or lamb satay?

A few days ago, on our way home from Tangkak in Johor, we purposely drove to Pedas, a small town in the district of Rembau in Negeri Sembilan to buy tasty sate kambing from a small road-side stall owned by Encik Sudirman and his wife Azizah.

Their sate kambing is the best sate kambing that we had ever tasted, well marinated, tender and juicy; and for us they are tastier than the sate kambing offered at the popular Restoran Sate Wak Radol in Taman Sri Skudai, near Johor Bharu.

Other than their scrumptious sate kambing, the friendly couple also offer tasty chicken and beef satay, all at a very decent price.

We came across the satay stall last year, as we drove to Pedas looking for a place for dinner while we were at the Nation Buidling Camp in Ulu Sepri and this is the third time we had the chance to enjoy their delicious satay.

Located near the Pedas Police Station, it opens at around 6:30PM or on wards, so if  you happens to be in the town of Pedas, please give it a try.

But if you are planning to purposely drive to Pedas for the satay like we did this time, please contact the stall owner in advance to make sure that they are open for business.

Please click the first photo for their phone numbers.

The coordinates for the stall is 2.620221, 102.058153.

The Iconic ‘Mee Racun’ of Batu Pahat

The district of Batu Pahat, Johor is known for the iconic Mee Racun 3G restaurant, which is located in Kampung Kenangan Dato Onn, in front of the Pinetree Hotel.

Featured in the Johor state newspaper, Jauhar, it serves delicious dishes with the ‘racun’ (poison) themed name, such as Kuew Tiaw Racun, Nasi Goreng Racun, and of course, the iconic Mee Racun.

Despite its frightening name, each dish is actually not poisonous at all; but the gravy is red and looks ‘poisonous’, thus leading it to the peculiar name, as what had been explained to me by a lady at the restaurant.

I’ve already eaten at the restaurant three times, the food was constantly tasty and the people who work there are also very kind and friendly.

My personal favourite is the ‘Kuew Tiaw Racun’, a spicy and delicious dish that I really enjoy, where every mouthful was a treat in itself with its unique and distinctive flavour ‘explodes’ in my mouth in each spoonful.

One of my favourite parts of eating the dishes here is to sip in the bone marrow using a straw.

So if you visit Batu Pahat, you won’t want to miss the chance to try these marvellous dishes.

Terbaik! Ikan Baung Tempoyak @ Restoran Nasir Corner, Segamat

Restoran Nasir Corner, Segamat, Johor.

Wondering where to have lunch while in Segamat?

As Segamat is known for its fresh water fishes and prawns, ‘ikan baung’ is the ‘must-try’.

During our visit to Segamat early this week, my parents and I had lunch at the popular Restoran Nasir Corner in Taman Utama Segamat, Johor.

The restaurant which is popular for its fresh ‘ikan baung’ and huge fresh water prawn or ‘udang galah’ dishes also offers lots of other very Malay dishes, including the very tasty kerabu and a huge selections of vegetable dishes which are very, very tasty.

Despite feeling rather full, I ate more than I usually do, as the food served are just really delicious especially the tasty ‘ikan baung’ and the kerabu.

For me ‘ikan baung’ is tastier than ‘ikan patin’. 

The owner of the restaurant is a very friendly man, he stopped at our table a few times, asking us if we enjoy the food. 

Below are some photos of the restaurant.

Bubur Lambuk Paling Sedap Di KL

In the Malaysia, bubur lambuk is a special dish that is not to be missed in the holy month of Ramadhan.

People enjoy this delicious dish for iftar, and it is only sold during the month of Ramadhan.

In Kuala Lumpur, the most popular bubur lambuk comes from Kampung Baru and the best comes from Aunty Sham’s stall, Bubur Lambuk Warisan Kak Sham which is located across the street from the Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru.

We never fail to buy Aunty Sham’s delicious bubur lambuk at least a few times each Ramadhan.

Aunty Sham’s bubur lambuk is so popular that some people even cheated the customers by claiming that their bubuk lambuk is the Bubur Lambuk Warisan Kak Sham

Today we got to enjoy the tasty bubur lambuk for the first time this Ramadhan.

Usually we will be having our bubur lambuk on the first few days of Ramadhan, but this year my father had been very busy that it was postponed until today.

It is delicious as always and eating Aunty Sham’s bubur lambuk is very nostalgic because it is what I have been waiting for every Ramadhan ever since I can remember.

If you happen to be in Kampung Baru and looking for the best bubur lambuk, please look for the banner for the authentic and most delicious bubur lambuk!

Lunch At Nasi Bamboo Sungai Klah

Nasi Bamboo Sungai Klah restaurant.
Nasi Bamboo Sungai Klah restaurant.

The restaurant is situated near the Plaza Tol Sungkai or Sungkai Toll Plaza in Perak.

Similar to the ‘Restoran Kari Kambing 40 Hari’ in Johor, this is also a self-service restaurant; but unlike ‘Restoran Kari Kambing 40 Hari’, this restaurant serves a huge variety of dishes and the service is good.

I love the tasty Nasi Bamboo which is rice wrapped in a type of Malaysian jungle leaf called ‘daun lirik’ or kalatia and steamed in bamboo.

The Nasi Bamboo set came with serunding which is a spicy meat floss dish, curry, slices of cucumber and sambal belacan.

We also tried the barbequed venison and ‘Ayam Kampung Bunian’ which were very tasty and the venison and kampung chicken were sweet and juicy.

The laksa was also delicious and so was the Air Batu Campur or better known as ABC and other food that we ordered.

I truly enjoyed the tasty foods at the ‘Nasi Bamboo Sungai Klah’ and I would love to eat the restaurant again.
