Nasi Berlauk

After a long tiring bumpy ride all the way from Seremban, through the jungles of Bahau, the shores of Kuantan and Terengganu, I finally set my foot at my home sweet home. Seven hours of back-aching journey had been really uncomfortable for me, not to mention about the same insomnia that I had every time I ride a bus. Thanks to my laptop anyway. Watching Madagascar 2 on the bus last night made me consider of having a new nickname; Moto Moto. Cute isn’t it?

Arrived at the Bah Steseng at 5am, I was then picked up by my parents and as soon as I lay me ass on my dear bed, I can’t remember anything until my eyes finally open, glaring at a ticking clock with it’s shorter arm pointing at 12. (Subuh aku tak tinggal ok, ak bangun semayang pastu sambung balek tido..sila jangan bersangka buruk.)

Forcing my ass with all my might to leave the lembek, I later found an RM10 note on a table in the living room. The sight of that red piece of paper tells me that I have to buy my own brunch. My parents had gone to Besut to makang puluk, leaving me alone with my eye’s shit (taik mata). After a few splash of water on my face and my hair to get them neat together (gosok gigi jangan dilupa), I dashed to the nearby cybercaf√© by my old Modenas Kris without any bath (please dun think of any negative things).

With none of those monkeys playing and shouting in the cybercaf√©, I had a good time surfing the net peacefully. When will my neighbour set up a wireless connection so that I don’t have to spend so much to use internet? After warming the chair for nearly 2 hours, I rode the nearby Warung Kak Minah to buy a brunch.

And my choice is Nasik Berlauk!!!

It is damn good! It is damn nice! It is damn delicious! I miss this sooooo much! You cant find this in Seremban fer God sake! This masterpiece is the favorites of the Terengganumen and the Kelantanese. I better describe this in Malay for ultimate explanation...

Dengan ayam gorengnnya yang terlebih dahulu diperap dengan pelbagai rempah dan herba yang menangkap aroma, setiap urat-urat cebisan ayam ini mengeluarkan rasa yang amat sedap sekali memenuhi mulut dan tunas-tunas rasa di lidahku. Rasa adunan ramuannya memnuhi segenap mult dari bahagian luar sehinggalah ke tulang temulang yang tidak jemu dihisap-hisap dan di mama-mamah lembut. Pastinya ayam itu tidak menyesal disembelih kalau ia tahu bahawa ia akan dimasak sebegini sedap!

Potongan-potongan daging lembu yang digoreng dengan kunyit, kacang panjang, dan bawang besar betul-betul mengiurkan. Setiap kunyahan terhadap daging yang agak kenyal ini mengeluarkan pelbagai rasa yang menkjubkan, memenuhi segenap ruang mulut. Setiap satu tunas rasa di lidahku tergeletek riang dihamburi jus-jus kenikmatan dari potongan-potongan daging ini.

Kuah kuning yang pekat inilah yang menjadi kunci kenikmatan terhadap hidangan Nasik Berlauk ini. Sunnguhpun aku tidak tahu nama sebenar kuah kuning ini, namun aku tahu bahawa ia dimasak bersama timun air, bawang besar, ikan tongkol, belimbing muda dan lain-lain dan telah betul-betul menghasilkan rasa yang menakjubkan serta membuat sesiapa sahaja melupai masalah yang dihadapinya seperti berada di alam fantasi! Ditambah pula dengan sambal belacan yang pedas-pedas masin sememangnya menjadi pelengkap pada masterpiece yang agung ini.

Better than tandoori chicken, better than cheese nan, better than chicken chop, better than Gardenia Butterscotch, better than watching Watchmen, better than the cakoi in front of the Ampangan mosque...

Chan hai ho liao!~ chan hai hao sek ge!~

Nok Lagi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
