Nasi Kukus, means steamed rice in bahasa.
Nasi Kukus is originally from Kelantan and became trendy in Klang Valley area 6-7 years ago. To me, it seems like a fixed version of nasi berlauk or nasi campur. HAHA!
Rice is soaked in water, rinsed, and is placed in a small aluminum bowl (portion enough for one person), and steamed for 20 minutes. The steamed rice should be fluffy and chewy, then drizzled with spoonful of curry, some pineapple chutney, and a piece of spiced fried chicken (ayam goreng berempah).
Nasi Kukus D'Garden is located at Chong Thien Vun Park, just next to KK High Court. The spiced fried chicken is cooked on the spot so you are guaranteed with crispy skin fried chicken, yum! Downside is the oily fume from the open air kitchen might stick on the cloths when you dine here!
For me, the factors which make a good Nasi Kukus is:
Rice > Fried Chicken > Curry > Pineapple Chutney
Do you agree with me? 😁

|They are serving Nasi Lemak Kukus too! The sambal is a bit too salty to my liking, but nevertheless the nasi lemak is still yummy with the same Ayam Goreng Berempah and lots of ikan bilis|
