FOOD FINDS: Nasi Lemak KitKat at KitKat Chocolatery

Discovering new food is such a joy especially if it comes in a nice box. ;)

During my travel to Kuala Lumpur last year, I came across this article about Malaysian KitKats. Of course, we are very much familiar with the different KitKats in Japan like the sake, sakura, and even soy sauce- flavored ones.



KitKat Chocolatery in Kuala Lumpur is located at the Mid-Valley Megamall which happens to be a short train-ride away from my hotel in KL Sentral.


I love how the store played with colors to make the KitKat more appealing and mouthwatering.


The special KitKat flavors are: Apam Balik (pancake with corn and peanuts), Ice Kacang which is similar to our very own halo-halo iced dessert, Durian Delight, Café Latte with Cookies & Cream, Red Bean (mooncake inspired), Ondeh- Ondeh (dessert made with tapioca and pandan), and Nasi Lemak (Malaysia's famous dish with chili and coconut milk).


I got Ice Kacang, Durian, and the Nasi Lemak. I also wanted the Ondeh-Ondeh but belatedly found out that it was a popular choice that it already ran out when I went back to the store. The Ice Kacang was interesting since it has nuts and peanuts, the Durian.. well, it's chocolate with durian bits, but the Nasi Lemak KitKat was literally an explosion of flavor--- err, spicness! Haha, I wasn't able to finish it and gave up eventually.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
