It’s a yet another working night for my husband, but one got to eat and fuel up before slaving at work for the rest of the night, so we meet half way for dinner as there one perfect place is the vicinity of Midvalley where busy urbanites could have quick but wholesome local delicacies in one go, MyNasi.
The restaurant practices self-service concept and is quite small for my dining in- standard, but I guess it is all right, as it’s mostly catered to busy working people who wants to have a quick takeout.
MyNasi, Mee Rebus, Mee Siam, MyLaksa with Cockles, Assorted Side Dishes, Taufu Telur and Otak-Otak Muar.
Their specialty, is of course, their assorted selection of Nasi Lemak. The one that we tried is this, MyNasi set (RM10.90) with whole chicken thigh. As usual, it’s served with a side of sambal, fried anchovies, peanuts and a a slice of boiled eggs. The coconut rice was very rich with coconut milk taste with fluffy texture. The sambal is a tad too mild for me and I thought it should be better if it’s much spicier, but if you’re busy at work and looking for a comforting meal that will not hurt your tummy, then you will feel that this level of spiciness is just nice. The chicken was adeptly fried and have a hint of lemongrass taste in it. Not exactly the authentic kind of nasi lemak you usually get on the sidewalk, but good enough for me.
MyLaksa with Cockles (RM8.90) is actually rice noodles served with thick, creamy curry, topped with condiments like blanched beansprouts, fried tofu, a slice of halved boiled egg, chives, cockles and of course, sambal. Honestly, although I like the texture of the thick rice noodles, the curry is way too creamy and milky for me and the sambal was really mild instead of spicy. Personally, would like a less rich version where you could savor the curry taste, but like I said, the restaurant cater to busy working individuals who needs a quick meal. And this sort of food would just settle their tummy during lunch of dinner without upsetting their tummy.
Mee Rebus (RM8.00). Yellow noodles served with spicy tapioca gravy with condiments. The usual suspects like fried tofu, boiled eggs, blanched beansprouts is of course there. The texture of the noodles is all right. The tapioca gravy was rich and flavourful. It would have overwhelm those who are not familiar with strong tasting food, but this one’s quite all right for me.
Mee Siam (RM8.00). Rice vercimille served with sweet, spicy and savoury sauce. This dish was one of my favourite that night. The dish was not only aromatic but it is positively, sinfully delicious. Could easily tempt me for a second helping, I assure you.
Fried Chicken Wings (RM3.50) per piece. Adeptly fried and flavourful. Nice to have on it’s own as a snack or as a side dish to a plate of nasi lemak.
Additional side dishes like breaded fried fish, fried fish, chicken luncheon meat, chicken sausages etc can be ordered separately. Price per piece of these is Rm2 and above.
The house special, Taufu Telur (RM7.90) is practically the star of the night. It’s merely a smooth tofu fried in omelete style, drizzled with sweet soya sauce and topped with shredded cucumber and carrots, but this humble dish is delicious enough to warrant a second or third helping. Highly recommended and a must try if you dine in MyNasi.
Otak-Otak Muar and other snacks is also available for you to enjoy, but I can’t comment much on those as I did not try it out.
Overall, the dining experience here in MyNasi Midvalley is decent. The food here is not really authentically spicy for Malaysian standard, but you’d find it enjoyable to eat nevertheless, especially if you are looking for something warm, quick and wholesome to eat.
