Excellent nasi lemak @ Tukdin, Paddington/Lancaster Gate, London

The rice in nasi lemak here has the right aromatic depth -- with coconut and probably pandan. Ikan bills/small anchovies with peanuts and sambal belacan (a chilli paste with fermented shrimp) was spot on - sweet, spicy, pungent. Comes with fried chicken, a boiled egg and cucumber slices. Probably the best I've encountered in London so far.

The nasi goreng kampong/"village style" fried rice was also very tasty -- marked by a good depth of spicy flavour and very crunchy fried anchovies/ikan bills and lacy trails of fried egg. The rice had a lovely vibrance from a hot wok and reached a delicious well-calibrated dryness.
