Nasi Kerabu @ Kampung Baru, KL

Meet Sam Worthington ( Marcus Wright in Terminator Salvation) – currently, my favourite action superhero! This super-ripped , hottie-pants hails from Australia is top on my list of lean, mean acting machines:) I was really glad to hear that Sam is currently working on “Clash of the Titans 2010” and will star as Perseus! Swoon!

Terminator Salvation was action packed from the word go. The visual elements were appropriately smoke-drenched and moody and I really loved hearing the über-cliché “I’ll be back” ! (Wait for it!!!)

Anyone who wants to watch it again, please kindly call me. Thanks. (Cumi said once is enough:P)

Anyway the show was starting in half an hour and we had just enough time to head out to Kampung baru for a quick dinner.
Cumi is not a fan of the nasi lemak from antarabangsa, so we decided to go look for Malay Rice instead.
We walked through the pasar malam and I managed to get this simple but effective shot of the twin towers with my (simple but effective) point and shoot.

Ah, the corner seafood/nasi shop… Not as busy as the Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa, thank God!
I had the plain nasi with the LUNG (in red), the stomach (pink in the middle) and the rendang chicken (in orange). All were equally tasty. The Lung was too salty.
Cumi had the kerabu rice. I was amazed at the number of colors that were on his plate! Rainbow Nasi! Of course he added all his own favourite ‘lauk’ to the plate and that’s why he has so many things going on.

Nasi Kerabu literally means ‘rice salad’. Kelantan has a variety of Nasi Kerabu. Nasi kerabu Hitam(black) is actually colored blue! (as in the photo).

The kerabu/salad could be any vegetables or edible leaves though the more or less standard version will have daun kesum, taugeh (bean sprout), long green beans, bunga kantan, cucumber and daun kadok. Apart from that it is also sometimes served with fried breaded fish, keropok keping, salted egg, and pickled garlic.

Hurry up Cumi! Only 10 minutes before Terminator starts.. Eat up, let’s go!


AKAN DATANG! Perseus in Clash of the Titans.

Perseus slays Calibos, slays Medusa, slays Kraken!

    Sam, my man. *drool* Nasi kerabu. *drool* Dunno which one I want more….pulled in all directions. Very very hard decision.

  • Jason says:

    Seriously, I also think that Sam completely steals the limelight in the movie, just like the nasi kerabu!

  • thule a.k.a leo says:

    whenever I go to Pasar Malam, I always look for Nasi Kerabu… partly because I seldom go to Malay restaurant. And I think that it's expensive to have this traditional dish in Delicious…

    for RM2.50 to RM3.50… my lauk-pauk definitely more than what is offered by Delicious 🙂

  • "Joe" who is constantly craving says:

    simple p&s…hahah if it was the big chunky camera, it would have taken all nite to take that pic!

  • thenomadGourmand says:

  • Simon Seow says:

    Hmm..Nasi Kerabu, makes me wanna go to the stall opposite LHDN building in Jalan Duta to buy it for breakfast.

  • Raynebow says:

    Ahh… i just saw one of my colleagues had blue Nasi Kerabu for lunch too – the whole pantry was filled with the yummy aroma!
    I enjoyed Terminator Salvation too but thought the environment (the world in 2018) was too bleak, very depressing but luckily had the 2 hunks (christian bale and sam) to dilute the depression a bit!

  • jencooks says:

    Cumi cannot tahan the show by Sam Worthington more than once obviously, your hero for now ?
    Nasi kerabu hitam with that tinge of blue is simply exotic in look.

  • CUMI & CIKI says:
