Similar Eatery

So we went to another eatery that serves steamed rice when when we found this one to be closed. I remember reading a post on "Eat What Eat Where"'s blog about this eatery called "Kukus Stim Habis" that is located in TTDI which is nearby Damansara Utama so we went there.

Set Alakazan with sambal Tebaboh - MYR15.90 nett which is steamed nasi lemak (rice cooked with coconut milk) with one deep fried chicken leg. They use basmati rice and because the rice is steamed, the rice is not lumped together but can be eaten grain by grain if you wish to. The texture is firm and bouncy, great for people who loves QQ rice but for me who has weak teeth, I find the texture to be too firm for my poor teeth. The rice here is no where as fluffy as those that I have eaten at Swad Restaurant but very nice for those who love to eat QQ bouncy rice.

When I read ewew's post, I wanted to try the sambal mambang but when I was at this eatery I was in a hurry so I did not order the sambal mambang so I will need to eat here again to try it.

Set Madu Tiga - MYR15.90 nett - steamed rice with 3 types of side dishes - chicken curry, beef rendang and mutton curry. Great value for money!

Nasi Kerabu Tulen with Gulai Kawah Daging and solok lada - MYR18.90 nett.

Ewew mentioned that for sets, drinks are included but I guess in my hurry I forgot to ask about this and none of the staff said anything so we ordered a cup of hot ginger tea at MYR3.20 nett and a glass of cold nescafe coffee at MYR4.20 nett. It could be that the sets no longer include drinks or the staff is just ignorant. Another thing to mention is that the staff did not even know how to put together the set madu tiga - they did not know which side dishes to include and we saw them discussing amongst themselves when putting together the order and it took a while for that order to be served.

Total Bill came up to MYR58.10 nett.

  1. I love nasi kukus. It's different than the usual boiled rice and is even better here with basmati rice.

    I would love to have that Nasi Kerabu set. Looks so good.

    1. Different because it is grain by grain. I think the biggest set would suit you better because you would get to try 4 types of sambal.

  4. The food sure looks good and they have more choices than Lejen. I must come here one day. The rice appears to be fluffy, I mean not clumped up like the one at Lejen.
