Nasi Ayam Hailam



Greetings my friend, here I am still alive and what a post I got for you guys....For us Malaysian, Nasi Ayam, or Chicken Rice are common but yet there are so many varieties of Nasi Ayam in our region, and they are all good to every individual taste... for me what makes Nasi Ayam special are the combination of four (4) element that makes a Nasi Ayam complete... they are the rice should be fluffy with a taste of the chicken essence, then the broth should be hot and aromatic, then the sauce which consist of the sambal and the soy, and lastly what makes the Nasi ayam complete is the chicken itself either steamed of roasted (normally fried) but the chicken should be moist not dried.... Mmmm mouth watering Nasi Ayam...

So this are one of my favorite place for my favorite Nasi Ayam, the restaurant is called Nasi Ayam Hailam Restaurant... Hailam stands for the one of the region in main land China that the recipe was originated. Not to forget the restaurant is certified with Halal certificate, actually I was told that the owner is a mualaf, a chinese convert to Islam, So lets have look at what is going on at the restaurant.....

This is the main entrance where they display the finely cooked chicken

This is the fluffy rice, cook to perfection

We had the steamed chicken

And also the roasted chicken

as a side dish we add the best kerabu mangga ever (mango salad)

and finally the comfortable environment, with a touch of string music instrument decor 

Well guys how's that? even when I'm writing about it makes me imagine that I'm still there... hehehehe

Here the Info of the restaurant:

Nasi Ayam Hailam Damansara Utama S/B
102, Jalan SS21/39,
Damansara Utama
47400 Petaling Jaya.

My rating for the place 4 and a half thumbs up...
plus a recommendations from me.....

P/S: I don't want to talk about the broth, actually it tasted like full of MSG (Ajinamoto)... I once saw in front of my eyes when they prepare the broth they put one bag full of MSG... that's why I give them 4 and a half thumbs up... if they make the broth with natural flavor then I give them a 5 thumbs up...

Its that time of the month where I go hunting with my partners for new food joints... so last Sunday I came across this newly fast-food joint, I normally don't want to cover any fast-food, but this time its different..

This is Mo'men, its a fast-food concept, where you order at the counter and enjoy your meal at the table while sitting on an uncomfortable chairs... just like any other fast-food joints.... Mo'men is a chain of fast food restaurants based in Cairo, Egypt. and now it's available in Malaysia, in Shah Alam, section 7....

A few views of the interior of the restaurant.

That day I had Philly Steak Sandwich Combo
