Ein Keller Riesling auf Reisen – Foodmatching im malaysischen Strassenrestaurant

Jeder weiss: Kaum ein Weisswein passt so gut zu pikantem asiatischen Essen wie Riesling. Und so sind die unzähligen Strassenlokale in Südostasien eigentlich ein Wine-Matching Paradies für Riesling-Aficionados. Doch eines fehlt in diesen Lokalen fast immer, nämlich eine Weinkarte. Meist wird hier vor allem (auch sehr passendes) kaltes Flaschenbier angeboten. Daher habe ich mir angewöhnt, wenn ich meinen Bruder in Kuala Lumpur besuche, immer 1-2 Flaschen erstklassigen Riesling in den Koffer zu packen. Viele Lokale sind dermassen casual, dass man problemlos auch seine eigenen Getränke mitbringen kann.

Im Gepäck hatte ich dieses mal unter anderem eine Flasche 2010 Riesling RR vom Weingut Keller. Zum Abschluss unseres Aufenthalts haben wir diese in unser Stammlokal auf der Jalan Alor mitgenommen. Jalan Alor ist quasi die zentrale Fressstrasse der Stadt. Hier reiht sich ein Plastikstuhl-Restaurant an das nächste. Es gibt vornehmlich chinesische Spezialitäten. Read the rest of this entry »

Hooch Alert!

While browsing my photo archive I found these old shots of a supermarket-shelf in Malaysia. It’s the kind of bottles you might stumble upon all over South-East Asia if you’re looking for cheap booze. They kind of look funny, but you have to be aware that hangovers and headaches are included in the price. Thank me! I’ve taken one for the team back then Read the rest of this entry »

Tangkak Beef Noodles, Kuala Lumpur

It’s been quite a while since I’m back from Malaysia but I still didn’t share all there was to share. This is another haven for lovers of beef soup in Kuala Lumpur. A friend who knows my addiction for all that is food or wine brought me there on a quiet afternoon. The place wasn’t busy at all and had really no appeal on its own except maybe that you don’t have to eat on the street (well, I don’t mind). But the food is really convincing. You get a nice clear and rich beef broth with the noodles of your choice and topping of choice. My own bowl was topped with juicy and tender slices of beef tenderloin – what more you need to be happy?
This shop is apparently quite new and an outlet of an already very successful beef noodle brand. It is located on Jalan Imbi in the centre of Kuala Lumpur. Here’s a report on it in The Star.

Chow Kit Market, Kuala Lumpur

image

When travelling and discovering new countries and cities, there’s always one place which is a must to go for me: the market. There you can instantly get an idea of the country’s culture, the way of life, preferences and of course local specialties.

Thus, if you happen to travel to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, you should plan a morning visit of the Chow Kit market (named after the neighborhood it is in). It is the biggest so called “wet market” in the city and far away from usual tourists paths. There you can also buy spices and dried chilies as a gift to bring home and if you have the opportunity to cook in Malaysia also very fresh and inexpensive fish and shrimp.

Just one advice: don’t wear your favorite shoes since the floor is quite “wet”. Here are my impressions from the last visit:

Asia’s revenge on Marco Polo :P

Seen on a menu in a small restaurant on the Malaysian countryside. Somehow Asia takes back a bit of what Marco Polo took to Italy. :=)
