Fifth Palate @ Kota Damansara
If there is one dish that represents Malaysia and if that particular dish must fit into any meal of the day (all breakfast, lunch and dinner); then it would inevitably be the nasi lemak for sure. And with the celebration of Merdeka and Malaysia day in August and September respectively, we are celebrating it with an assortment of nasi lemak renditions. We have the nasi lemak kukus, nasi lemak bungkus, and even nasi lemak with pork rendang. Fifth palate at Kota Damansara is celebrating patriotism with the national dish itself with the addition of Pork rendang on top of the usual suspects.
Their intereperation of this emblematic national dish is well executed here at the Fifth Palate. Not only did the sambal perfectly complementing the pandan infused rice, their pork rendang itself was absolutely delicious with aroma and thick flavours to accentuate the umaminess of the tender pieces of pork.
Together with this dish is the Teh Tarik with Gula Melaka. This combination was cleverly done albeit a little weird but to go with their nasi lemak, is pleasantly acceptable.
Finishing with their pandan flavoured eggette folded and filled with tasty coconut ice cream, is probably the best dessert to complete such satisfying meal. Sprinkled with some juicy corn kernels, this dessert can be a meal on its own if you are not sharing but hey, best things are shared and what’s a better to celebrate Malaysia if not over some sweet treats with your best bud?
The Pork Rendang Nasi Lemak and Gula Melaka Teh Tarik is available now till 18th of September so take note to not miss out on that delicious pork rendang.
Happy Malaysia Day.
