Pholio Cafe ~ Best Nasi Lemak Kukus Tradisi @ Mutiara Damansara Petaling Jaya

It's All About Nasi Lemak
At
PHOLIO CAFE
Malaysian National Dish
Nasi Lemak

In a country where nasi lemak is a staple dish for many Malaysian and foreigners alike, it is sometimes not easy to find a nasi lemak joint that hits all the right buttons. From street vendors and kopitiam to restaurants that specialise in the delicacy, each one boasts its own unique flavours.

Enter Pholio Cafe, a football themed decor cafe started by Vijian Chan, a foodie himself and his Malay business partner cum chef way back in 2013. They started the flagship Pholio Cafe in Mutiara Damansara with chef's heritage family recipe, serving one of the best nasi lemak kukus in Klang Valley.
Cooking nasi lemak was chef's family speciality dish for their relatives and close friends where everyone would be treated to a gastronomical affair during festive celebration and family gathering. The decades old recipe since 1948 ~ was passed down to chef from his grand father and now taught to him by her mother, Makcik Aia . How sweet and special!

Thumbs Up For Makcik Aiashikin's Awesome Family Recipe

I was told by Makcik Aia that his son strive to maintain the homemade concept by using natural ingredients and methods in preparing the nasi lemak kukus and not cut corners in the preparation. The key to a good nasi lemak kukus is in the tedious preparation of steaming the rice in coconut milk.

Traditional method practise by his family where rice are clean throughoutly, soaked and steam, later to be re-steam for the last time with coconut milk. Lots of thought and effort goes into cooking the nasi lemak kukus that makes a lasting impression with its fragrant and rich-tasting rice. 

Pholio Cafe served their nasi lemak kukus dish with deep fried spice chicken (ayam goreng berempah) garnished with crispy anchovies (ikan bilis), roasted peanuts, boiled egg, fresh cucumber slices and some sweet-spicy sambal. 

The ayam goreng berempah is one of the more popular dishes and is marinated the night before with several spices including lemongrass, galangal, turmeric. spices among others. You will love the deep fried ayam goreng berempah for its juicy and succulent inside with well-marination of herbs and spices. 

Sweet & Spicy Sambal

The key to good nasi lemak is in its rice and sambal, and I have to say that the nasi lemak kukus here makes a lasting impression with its special steam coconut milk rice. For those who like their sambal to be more sweet than spicy, this is right place to try it out.

The rich sambal gives the rice its lip-smacking goodness. One can practically add and mixed their favourite thick sambal like gravy to the coconut rice to enhance the taste!

Juicer Part ~ Drumstick

Meatier Part ~ Thigh

For the deep fried chicken (ayam goreng berempah), the cafe uses only the drumstick and thigh, typically the softer and juicer parts of the chicken, to cater for the majority patrons' preferences.
