Covid-19 MCO : Day #63 (Thinking of Nasi Kerabu)


Way before the MCO, I had the hots for Hayaki's Nasi Kerabu. Via Grabfood  because I somehow couldn't bring myself to sit alone at Hayaki@Damansara Uptown. Why? Why? Why, you ask.

Well, I finally stepped into Hayaki soon after that and that is another story for another post. You wait, ah, I tell you later.

So. I think it was before Chinese New Year that I ordered nasi kerabu and nasi kukus many, many times from Hayaki. I just loved the food.


The meal is packed in paper boxes. Top marks for environmentally friendly packaging.


But alas plastic can't be avoided to contain the sauces and sambal. This was the Nasi Kerabu Ayam Percik, I think.


After I removed the chicken leg (apparently there are people who complained on Google review that they were disappointed because they wanted breast. How silly) you can see the rice, sambal kelapa (yummeh!), fresh herbs and veggies.


I transferred all to a plate and gave the rice a nice mix.


Poured the sauces/sambal.


And had a jolly good feed.


Another day I add on rojak buah and concluded that it is not worth it. Not nice at all. Just stick to the nasi kerabu.

I also ordered a packet of keropok.


Somebody had her share.


And was very pleased. Meow!

  1. I used to bring midnight guests to dine at HAYAKI as that's the only 24 hours outlet closest to home. The foreigners loved the food there. I tried everything except Nasi Kerabu! I should try that next time. I was surprised to discover that their HQ is in Kota Bahru and KL is the only branch!

    2. Np, cos many people think it is silly to want to eat chicken breast. Someone even say it to the face of my brother when he requested for chicken breast meat, lolx!

  3. So what did you give Girl Girl? Can't see clearly in the photo. Keropok? Or chicken?

  4. The nasi kerabu looks good except I can hardly see the colour of the blue-tinged rice. I would have been highly disappointed if I had gotten the chicken breast. What can I say, we're both chicken leg lovers! ;) I think I know what you mean about dining alone. There are certain places I've no qualms about dining alone but some places I just don't feel comfortable sitting alone. Anyway, I'll wait for your story. Your cat eats fish keropok? Wow, she really likes food...of any kind! :D
