Nasi lemak is commonly found in Malaysia and considered one of the national dishes. The name is derived from the cooking process whereby rice is soaked in coconut cream and then the mixture steamed. The rice is normally cooked with pandan leaves that gives it a distinctive flavour and aroma. Although both dishes are often served for breakfast and can be served in a variety of ways, it is often eaten throughout the day.
Complement your nasi lemak dish with Ipoh White Coffee which originated from Ipoh in the state of Perak. Due to it's popularity, Ipoh is being named one of the top three coffee towns by Lonely Planet.
