So many new businesses have happened and developed unexpectedly during this pandemic. Just like unexpected white mushrooms appeared after a heavy downpour.
Recently, I met up with a neighbourhood friend who has a Thai wife. His tastes for food is very trustworthy and he had never failed me with good recommendations. He told me that there was a daily makeshift stall right behind my office. They sell authentic Malay styled nasi kandar in front of the famous TTDI Starbucks. He observed that they were quite a newly set up and enjoyed long queues of faithful customers under the hot scorching sun at noon. So he was curious and went to buy 2 packets to bring home. He SWORE to me that it was superb since his fussy Thai also approved that the curries were very rich and tasty.
The greedy me, on hearing this, went to queue up the next day! The line was long and I stood there for some 30 minutes!
Remember that the name is Nasi Anak Tanjung - Original Nasi Kandar Langgaq. I bought one packet of yellow rice with beef, 2 pieces Okra, ikan bilis and egg.
Next door was selling the Pure Mango Juice. It was such a hot day and this icy cold juice was very tempting. So I bought a cup just in case the curry was too spicy.
Look at my lunch! The curry beef was so fragrant with rich spices and very tender meat. Yums! The okra, ikan bilis and yellow rice was fragrantly cooked. It costs me only RM7.00! I SWORE that it is the best Nasi Kandar in my whole neighbourhood and PJ!!.... Next day, I went to buy again but 2 packets. One was for my wife and I got her fried chicken with her rice. She ate too fast for me to snap photos. Her verdict: She SWORE that the nasi kandar was better than all the 3 curry shops overlooking this Nasi Anak Tanjung. Wooohooo!! Calling Phong Hong to order via GrabTM.
This is the refreshing Pure Mango juice that costs me only RM5 which included cut pieces of sweet mango flesh. An ideal drink after the nasi kandar. Burp! I will be back again and again.
