Laksa Johor

Here is another view of Johore Laksa as served on the table at Warong Mak Tim. That is before we cleared the garnishing and lifted the noodles to uncover it for photography. See earlier pic and post titled Women's Day Treat.

As legend has it, the then Johor ruler, Sultan Abu Bakar, also the first Malay ruler to visit Europe in 1866, instructed his royal chefs to use spaghetti instead of the traditional rice noodles. The royal recipe caught on.

Nasi Tomato Ayam Masak Merah at Mak Tim

I love tomato rice. At Warong Mak Tim, I ordered a plate of Nasi Tomato Ayam Masak Merah (with red cooked chicken). Not sure if it is of Johor origin but it is nice that they used long grain Basmati rice. Mak Tim also serves Nasi Beriani Gam and they most likely use the same long grain.

Women's Day Treat.

Laksa Johore

It is International Women's Day and a nice woman took me out for lunch at a woman's place. When I was lamenting recently about friends letting me down when I needed help to go run errands, Elizabeth Chong, was one few empathetic people who contacted me to tell me she can help when necessary. It cheered me up greatly, on that day. Since we have not met in person, I suggested we meet up for a "trial run" in the form of a meal or drink.

Gum Chewing Woman Of 168

How about the non-smiling curry laksa chef who's chewing gum non stop? As I was to find out later, Restaurant 168 is also famous for its curry laksa and curry noodles in addition to its prawn wonton noodles (wantan mee).
