For nasi briyani lovers who don’t feel like paying an arm and a leg to get a plate of these yummy rice from mamak chains, here’s definitely a place you should check out.

Located right within the heart of financial district at Lorong Bandar 13 just off Lebuh Pasar Besar is Warong Nasi Briyani Tajudin where you can still get a plate of nasi briyani for as low as RM 5. (that’s about the 2 teh ais at those “high class” mamak these days right?)

Since parking is a bitch at the area, we decided that take away was the best option. Luckily, even though the stall was plenty busy, they are well prepared for big number of tapao orders and we got our 5 packets of nasi briyani in less than 10 minutes.

There are some cozy tables at the lorong where this stall operates, so it is an option to dine in, though not a particularly great idea to do so during peak lunch hours.

Chicken briyani is RM 5, lamb at RM 6. I had mine with lamb, and while the size of that one piece of lamb wasn’t exactly big (barely sufficient), it was rather tasty, and certainly worth the price we paid.

The rice was fragrant, and I love the extra couple packets of curry that comes with it, one being the normal curry and the other tasted almost like satey sauce, kinda interesting but it worked. There’s also a tiny portion of cucumber and onion, I guess you can call those vege?

Other than lamb & chicken, they also serve briyani burung puyuh (RM 7), briyani fish/sotong (RM 6), and plain rice with those ingredients.

Happy eating!

Warong Nasi Briyani Tajudin

“Hello Makcik, kueh teow soup satu, tapau yah!”

I lied, that line wasn’t what I uttered to the employee at 60s Teow Chew Fish Ball Noodle Restaurant at Sea Park, for the very simple fact that she is probably a Chinese national who does not speak nor understand our National language.

In fact, I didn’t really have to specify the word “tapau” (or take-away, in non-Malaysian English). As soon as she saw the Tupperware in my hand, she had already asked what I wanted to order for take-away. Smashing!

The Tupperware that I brought for this very purpose was the very aptly named Tapau Set!

The Tapau Set comes with 3 containers – 2 Crystalwave dish (1L), and a single Crystalwave bowl (2L) that comes with a noodle holder. This noodle holder gadget eliminates the whole problem of soggy kueh teow altogether, you wonder why nobody has thought of that till now.

In the above “exercise”, I bought a portion of kueh teow soup, with soup and fishball in the 2L Crystalwave bowl and the kueh teow on noodle holder. I also used the 1L Crystalwave dish for some yong tao foo. (since the tupperware containers are quite big, sometimes hawkers will unknowingly give you bigger portion! shhhh…)

The Tapau Set also comes with this very nifty Grip n Go Cariolier that allows you to hold all 3 containers at the same time. A bit like a modernized version of old picnic set, no?

Together with the Tapau Set, Tupperware also have some new 500ml  Eco Bottle Spring that comes in several colors. They’re small enough to fit into a handbag, and big enough to quench your thirst.

Ultimately though, the most important message in this advertorial is about something that is better than recycle - REUSE. Using Tupperware for all your take-aways eliminates disposable plastic bags that ends up in landfills (or worse, the ocean where turtles can mistakenly ingest them), it is a step to the right direction for a better environment.

After all, the Penang government has already say no to plastic bags, shouldn’t we do our part too?
