A staple dish in Malaysia is the simple, delicious “chicken rice”.
I try to order more exotically-named things, but they all turn out to be variations on “chicken rice”.
Nasi Lemak – chicken rice – plus dried fish, peanuts and egg
Nasi Goreng – chicken fried rice – with a fried egg on top
Lelapan ulam-ulaman – chicken and rice – with some veggies and sauce
Pandan chicken – chicken in a leaf and rice
Thankfully they don’t make you eat chicken and rice for breakfast. Breakfast is toast and coconut spread, plus an orange if it’s Chinese New Year.
