[Singapore] "Lontong" from Kampung Glam Cafe

klyeoh | Jun 12, 201507:11 AM

Kampung Glam Café in Singapore's Malay quarter around the Sultan Mosque has always been one of my favourite spots for "teh tarek" and Malay "kueh-mueh".

It also offers a plethora of good Malay eats: "Mee Rebus", "Mee Siam", "Kacang Phool", "Nasi Lemak", "Gado-gado", and "Soto Ayam", among others.

One of the dishes that they do really, really well is the "Lontong": cubes of "nasi himpit" (compressed rice cakes) in a turmeric-spiced coconut curry of tofu, cabbage and long beans, topped with "kerisik" (spiced, chilied grated coconut) which provided a spike of flavour to the milky concoction. A piece of curried chicken wing added to the "lontong" brings it closer to its more elaborate Indonesian counterpart: the "Lontong Capgomeh". A dollop of sweet, piquant, spicy "sambal" (chilli paste) completed the dish.

The "Nasi Himpit" has a faint pandan scent and was perfectly-textured. Washed down with a glass of hot, milky "Teh Tarik", it makes for a substantial and very satisfying breakfast.
