Gertrude of My Kitchen Snippets is back for the CNY and I thought it would be great to meet up with her last Wednesday since I had a mission to accomplish in KL on that day. Killing two birds with one stone as the saying goes :p I am an opportunist LOL! I asked Gert, can we meet up on the 12th since I will be there with Cheah of No Frill Recipes . Gertrude told me that her classmate , Yik Wah and Sonia of Nasi Lemak Lover will be joining us and you can guess how happy I was to hear that ,coz I have not seen Sonia since our very first blogger meet up in March 1, 2010...almost four years I have not seen Sonia, though I do meet up with Gertrude each time she is back from the States. It was a great meet up and we had fun catching up with one another . And guess what, we met up at Madam Kwan's again :) Sonia brought along some of her Pumpkin Kueh With Mung Beans for us....as dessert. It was delicious and now I have bookmarked it for my next kueh making . My wish came true, I wanted her "gold bars" and truly she brought some for us :)
After Sonia left us, Gertrude, Cheah , Yik Wah and myself adjourned to Mid Valley's Oasis Food Court for our second round of food :) Yea , I won't return to Ipoh without trying out Mama Yu 's Nasi Kukus....highly recommended by Andy Lee :) Let me introduce you to Mama Yu's Nasi Kukus .
Mamayu was born into a family of cooks from Tanah Merah, Kelantan. At a very young age, like those before her, Mamayu has shown passion for cooking, often following her mother to their stall to learn the trade. After years of cooking and guidance from her mother, she has managed to master the skill of cooking authentic Kelantanese cuisine such as their very well received Kuah Kerutuk & Gulai Kawah.
If you have not been to MamaYu's Nasi Kukus kiosk at Oasis Food Court, do drop by and try out their Nasi Kukus With Ayam Goreng Berempah that comes with Kuah Kerutuk and Gulai Kawah . And they serve Nasi Lemak With Ayam Goreng Berempah too. And in the morning , they have Rice Noodle Balls ( something like Chee Cheong Fun but rolled up like spring roll ) . We didn't get to try their rice noodle balls. But I promised myself that I will return with Wild Boar when we next visit Mid Valley. Andy Lee, thanks for introducing us to Mama Yu's. We love the Ayam Goreng Rempah...crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. Nasi Kukus....yea their rice are steamed !
It would be 100% perfect if it the owner has added more rempah and salt to the chicken :) On the whole it was good. Prices are reasonable and for KL standard, it is really worth eating. Needless to say, we left for Ipoh so full that Cheah and myself just have to skip dinner :p sometimes I am not wrong when I called myself a glutton ! Of course not you la Cheah...I mean myself LOL! Btw, I lugged back a barrel of fried chicken from Popeye and a sandwich from Subway * all for Wild Boar **
these delicious looking Ayam Goreng Berempah
enough to make me drool while I was taking shots of it
