Chawan

CNY Day 3 - Breakfast at Chawan, Bangsar.

Muar Coffee - MYR4 - a refreshing aftertaste it said on the menu. Toast with butter and kaya - MYR3 and 2 Omega 3 eggs MYR3

My order - Soto Nasi Impit - MYR4 - I think this dish originates from Indonesia

Nasi Impit means Compressed Rice


Begedil Kentang made from potato

Nasi Impit (Compressed rice) - 4 cubes only - just nice for my breakfast. I love to eat nasi impit.

  1. Mun, I like Soto too but not too much nasi impit. I like the begedil kentang. We also had toast bread and eggs on toast for breakfast during CNY.

  4. What's with the two eggs in the bowl? Snow fungus? Why do they wrap the toast with kitchen towel when there's butter and kaya on it? Wouldn't they stick to the paper, wasted...or there isn't all that much for that to happen?

    1. Hahaha, not snow fungus but cooked egg whites. It is a paper towel wrapping two slices of toasts. The butter and kaya were in between the two slices of toasts so they were safe from the paper towel.

  5. The eggs look way overdone (not for me). I love begedil and I love soto, just not with nasi impit. I like to eat nasi impit with kuah kacang.

    1. I guess they were overdone and could no longer be considered half boiled eggs for true fans. I love to eat nasi impit anyway they are.

  7. Never seen this nasi impit before. So soupy. Look like ketupat to me.

    1. Basically nasi impit is like ketupat except they are not cooked in kelongsong ketupat made from coconut tree leaves.

  8. I usually take the nasi tomato with rendang or the fried chicken. Hmm nasi himpit I just don't like coz of the tasteless-ness hehe. Same reason as ketupat.

    Did you wrap the toast yourself?

    1. No, I did not. The toasts were served wrapped like that. I just love the fragrant taste of rice in ketupat and nasi impit. Not tasteless lah, far from it.

    2. Ok la must try 'opening' my nose to taste.

    3. I think more of the tongue, not nose for the fragrance of cooked plain rice.

  9. Er.. don't really like soto. In fact, don't really like any Indonesian style soup. I can't specifically mention why, it is a mystery even to myself.

    1. Is it because of the spices used or the oil used that you don't like the taste?

      Delete
    2. I don't really know what part of the ingredients (probably the oil), just the overall taste that I dislike..

      Delete
    3. I still think it is the spices used.

  10. So you took Indonesian food on the 3rd day? Nice for a change... I have suggested taking Indian food to my kids during CNY but they prefer me to cook something simple instead....

    1. Actually I prefer Indian and Indonesian food to chinese food.

  11. I like Indonesian food. Full of flavor from the spices they use. Will be interested to try the Nasi impit. Reminds me to ketupat.

    1. That's right, I like the spices that they use.

  12. Wow! I have memories of this place when it was newly opened. They have survived so well for so many years while their neighbours all folded up! I really must go again.

  13. The egg yolks of the soft boiled eggs look hard! I have only had soto once and I remember it is quite nice. But I am not too fond of the nasi impit.

    1. Seems like not many people like to eat nasi impit here. Yes, the egg yolks looked too cooked to be soft boiled eggs.

  14. I love begedil. I can eat it on its own and lots and lots of them eventhough on normal days I usually stay away from potatoes
