BEST Nasi Lemak & BEGGAR Chicken Cooked in MUD!

  • Published on May 25, 2018
  • You can't come to Malaysia without having Nasi Lemak, and my local friend took me to one of Kuala Lumpur's most iconic chicken and Nasi Lemak places, Village Park Restaurant.
    The next stop was at a hidden mom and pop restaurant that makes a specialty that's rare to find in Malaysia, and that's beggar's chicken. To get it, you have to make your order a day in advance, and the cooking process is exceptionally unique like no other.
    Crazy enough, this chicken that I'm eating was covered in mud and cooked in the ashy dirt to achieve its tender, juicy flavor. I also ordered the pork and sticky rice dishes that underwent the same process, and they were equally, mind-blowingly, delicious!

    Here in Europe we have an almost identical way of cooking trout to that beggar's chicken. It's a traditional way of cooking, when you are up in the mountains fishing and you don't have many utensils with you. You clean the fish, then you wrap it in leaves and you pack it in mud and then throw it in some charcoal and cover it. It takes much less time than a whole chicken, maybe an hour or two and it tastes absolutely delicious...

      yea we here in Austria normaly cook potatoes and sausages this way. I live next to the danue (big river that crosses many countries of Europe ) and this method ist typical to cook food on the rivers beaches. During a party or fishing.

    The soup of the mee rebus is so creamy because it is made of sweet potato. And it's not at all weird adding the sambal to it.
