Throughout Malaysia we can find warungs or street side food stalls which are popular places for a tasty and affordable meal with family and friends.
My friend Joe brought me to the famous Warung Kurniawan in Taman Suria.
Warung Kurniawan was typical of the thousands of warungs across Malaysia.
Warung Kurniawan is well known for its nasi lemak, sup tulang and its soto which can be eaten with bee hoon (rice vermicelli), yellow noodles, or rice cakes.
The soto soup at Warung Kurniawan was clear, not oily and mildly flavoured.
The generic yellow noodles were also somewhat bland.
Add a dash of their spicy sambal and the soup and noodles were instantly energized and perked up. As my friend said, the secret of Warung Kurniawan's soto is in their sambal. So, the flavour of Warung Kurniawan's soto is basically mild, and customers can adjust the spiciness to their liking by just adding their special spicy sambal. I also liked the crispy shallot crackles generously sprinkled on top of the noodles.
Warung Kurniawan's popular nasi lemak come tightly wrapped in these banana leaf and brown paper wraps.
For RM1.50, we get a fistful of fragrant coconut flavoured rice and sambal, slice of cucumber, half an egg, and a couple of small salted fish to go with it.
My friends and I liked this nasi lemak very much. This small package was packed full of delicious kampung flavours.
Come again? Yes! I want to try those enticing sup kambing and sup tulang!
