Kampung Baru within KL – a Good Place for Nasi Kerabu and other Malaysian delicacies

IMG_5169

Kampung is the Malaysian word for village and is often used for referring to the lifestyle outside the big metropolis Kuala Lumpur.

But there are also areas within the city which seem like countryside villages. Kampung Baru, for example is a small enclave where everything seems like you’re in a completely different place. Only the view on the skyline indicates that you’re still in KL.

Corner Seafood seems to be the name of the place

There you can find a multitude of local food offerings. One restaurant in particular attracted our attention. At 3 pm in the afternoon on a sunday, they were building up their buffet with loads of freshly cooked specialities. People kept rushing in while we were asking ourselves why they would all eat at that time of the day… The deliciousness of the food might be the reason. If you’re visiting KL, make sure you stop by Kampung Baru for a bargain feast. At the “Seafood Corner” (mostly meat actually lol) you can even try Nasi Kerabu, a not so frequently seen specialty.

Looks all delicious, some more spicy, some a little sweet (manis)

Huge choice of “toppings” for your rice

Check out the blue Rice! Nasi Kerabu, literally meaning Rice Salad is a local specialty you don’t find on every street corner in Malaysia. It is made of rice coloured by some blue flower and served with coconut scrapings, soy sprouts and veggies. You then put your choice of meat on top. Very fragrant and delicious rice! (I can assure you the rice really is blue despite the blue light within the food stall)

“Go for it!”. See now where the blue light comes from?

    Hello Mei. I am not quite sure. I think they’re open for lunch, but right now with Ramadan I guess they’re rather open in the evening.
