Nasi Kerabu @ Restoran Bok Kito, TTDI

NASI KERABU is one of my favourite rice dish. And if you know me well,  you'd know that I don't like rice too much :p I'm that sort of person that eats economy rice without rice, and I'd never go out of my way to get a rice dish, unless...it is like a Nasi Kerabu, or a special dish with toppings that excites me).  Nasi Kerabu is an exception...because there is so much going on in one dish.

The rich is cooked with butterfly pea flower, which, I feel, gives it a unique fragrance, and makes it look much more appealing (at least to me). On top of that, it is served with lots of shredded veggies (In case you didn't notice - most Malaysian dishes don't come with veggies/come with a mere few slices/strand of veggies :p), toasted coconut (gosh this is genius!), some sambal, pickle veggies for that extra tang and (usually) salted egg and keropok (fried fish crackers)! Gosh, I'm feeling fireworks in my tastebuds just by typing this :p

I am always on the lookout for good Nasi Kerabu place. My favourite is definitely Ad's Corner at Johor Bahru - used to patronise that place often but since I have moved back to KL now, and travelling is hard during this pandemic, I'll have to get down to the ground and hunt for my new favourite Nasi Kerabu place!

A close and dear friend of mine, who is also a big fan of Ad's Corner (:p) recommended me this place for Nasi Kerabu, at TTDI - Restoaran Bok's Kito. 

A word of warning - parking is certainly an issue at TTDI! Just saying. Haha. There were many cars that double-parked and left their number out on their dashboard around there.

The Environment

The interior was clean, spacious (perhaps due to the social distancing measure in place) and bright. I was there before 12pm and hence there were many seats available. My friend told me that they tend to get pretty packed during lunchtime! 

Some of the dishes were out in display to help you visualise what meat you'd like to go with your dish! You can place your order at the food display corner. Really appreciate that there is a yellow tape to prevent people from getting toooo close. 

Bok's Kito also serve Nasi Dagang, Laksam, and other rice dishes. But I was here for the Nasi Kerabu and hence, today's review will be solely about the Nasi Kerabu.

The Food

Nasi Kerabu RM6 + Ayam Kunyit Goreng (Tumeric fried chicken) RM7 = RM13
I thought that the Nasi Kerabu was a little pricey, but that's because I was comparing it to other roadside stalls and Ad's Corner in Johor, which I thought wasn't a fair comparison. 

But anyhow, I was really satisfied with the portion. The portion was hugeeeee. I could split this meal into two! Lots of chicken me likey. 
But nah I devoured it at one go - because it was delicious! The sambal was flavourful and after you mix everything together. The crunch from the veggies. The slightly spicy punch from the sambal. The juicy ayam percik. And that nice toasty coconut. Ahh. Love it. 

Overall, not bad. I think I still prefer Ad's Corner in Johor, but this place is decent too :) Definitely will be back one day! But parking will definitely be a strong deterrent. Would like to try their Nasi Dagang one day!
