One of my favorite food is Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah or hot steamed rice with fried chicken. This is a simple staple dish that I could eat daily without ever tiring.

Nasi kukus means the rice is steamed instead of boiled. The rice is nice and fluffy with a delicate pandan (screwpine) flavor and it tastes great when served hot!

Ayam Berempah!

The best dish that goes well with the rice is the “Ayam Berempah” (spiced deep fried chicken).

The chicken pieces are marinated with yogurt and milk. Some of the fragrant ingredients include lemongrass, onions, curry powder, and garlic and fennel seed!

Zukis makes his “Ayam Berempah” (spicy fried chicken). The crust browns easily when you cook with yogurt. The cook’s skill is in manning the fire.

Every piece is perfectly cooked through. So you don’t have to worry about cold spots.

Gulai Gravy

The Kuah Gulai or spicy gravy is made of an assortment of fragrant spices and “Air Assam” (tamarind) which gives it that piquant taste.

The green sambal is made of green chili and “chili padi” (bird’s eye chilis) which gives the heat.

The rice set which cost RM4.00 is served wrapped with the hot rice doused with “Kuah Gulai” some green sambal and fried chicken.

Tapau or Take Away

Most regulars will tapau this home. But if you’re starving at the sight of fried chicken, you could eat that in the kopitiam immediately.

I’m talking deep chicken flavor. The juicy tender meat has a crisp coating on the outside. The best parts are the ribs actually where the thin meat is coated heavily and fried to a nice brown crisp.

Deeply Delicious Ayam Flavour

For fried chicken lovers this stall is the place to head to for a delicious and tasty simple dinner.

You may find a little queue even as Zukis sets up the stall by 5.30 pm and closed when all the food is sold.

Zukis cooks everything from scratch and serves it piping hot! This little stall is at the road junction at Happy Café, Taman Pekaka, Sg. Dua

The chicken pieces fried in the hot oil and turned ever so often to prevent burning.

I love biting into the big fat chunks of white meat and tasting the salty, crispy, brown bits from the frying pan!
