Grilled Seafood And Nasi Kerabu At Taman Bukit Indah, Johor

ONE FINE EVENING NEARING DINNER TIME, WHEN I WAS ASKED WHETHER I WANTED TO GO FOR "GREEN RICE", the only answer from me was YES, YES!!  Any new place to try new food, I am All for it.  "Just lead the way... " I told them and we followed their car from behind.  The place is in Taman Bukit Indah and I was surprised to see that the it is actually a corner terrace house facing the main road.  It was almost 7.30pm when we reached and there were only one or two tables vacant.

I was told that it is normal to wait for an hour for the food to arrive... so if one is too hungry, one can buy the fried fish crackers hanging by the stall.... just eat that as appetizer first before the food is served.  Yes, the fried fish crackers were tasty, no itchiness on the tongue and they are rounded instead of longish in shape.

Here is the place.... open air and spacious at the corner house.....
Can pick and choose whatever seafood we like.... 
We ordered Grilled Stingray.... 
Grilled Big Prawns.... 
Squid or Octopus... I am not sure but they were really fresh and springy!
A very appetizing dish!
And Okra.... 
Well, all the dishes looked spicy and hot alright!
But I couldn't resist... so I kept cooling myself with glass after glass of herbal drink... 
Yes, this is the green rice but it is now no more green in colour.... 
It is something like Nasi Kerabu... only available during weekends, I heard...
Normal days are white rice.... 
The bill came to around RM120 plus... 
First time coming by here and tasting all the new Food
and won't mind coming again and again next time.... 
Nice!!

  1. Green rice? Kerabu is blue - the bunga telang flower is blue. Ah yes!!! I think the Johore one is green, if I remember correctly - the one I had here, probably using pandan.

  4. I first had my taste of grilled stingray in Penang many moons ago.

    Yes, please to the grilled food. Is MYR 120 reasonable for the bill?

  6. real nasi kerabu (khao jam) is tat color, from the many herbs used, with their distinctive taste and smell... then people resorted to use blue bunga telang cos easily available...

  7. That green nasi kerabu is khao jam - the Thai version. I heard about it at Capital Nasi Dagand Kelantan. They have it only on special occasions. I have yet to try.

    1. Yes, but half an hour is a normal waiting time.. stingray by itself is bland, so it must be cooked with some other sauce..

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
