Ulam - Malay Salad

3_2

More Ulam Components

4_2

Condiments: Sambal Belachan, another raw shallots & belachan-based one, sliced chillies in kicap (soy sauce), pickled chili padi (bird's eye chillies)

5_2

On the front left is one of the most delicious bergedil (cutlet) I've tasted...next to it, an equally tasty tempeh.

6_2

Grilled Fish stuffed with sambal and various curries

7_2

Mouthwatering Grilled Fish in all shapes and sizes

8_2

Right in the foreground is an incredibly flavoursome tempoyak (dish based on fermented durian), interesting, because it was cooked with chopped spinach. All of us at the table kept coming back to this dish. Yum!

9_2

More dishes...Just behind this table is a stall where the noodles are fried in a very fiery wok.The spicy heat level was (thankfully) monitored, as I heard someone telling the cook that the noodles were too pedas (spicy hot), and that he should have a lighter hand the next round.

Round #1 : Tomato Rice surrounded by some ulam, kerabu 4-angled beans, tempeh, bergedil, ayam masak merah

11_1

We were served jugs of air sirap (rose-flavored syrup drink) with biji selasih (basil seeds), and also air cincau (black jelly drink) which is not pictured...both perfect cooling drinks to wash down the spicy meal.

12_2

Kuih/Desserts Table - There were sago gula melaka, kuih jagung (corn cakes), various glutinous rice flour cakes, kuih koci, wajik, kuih sago, jemput pisang & etc...

13

((Blush)) Look at the kuih-muih (local cakes) on my plate..."Sorry, I'm not sharing!" Wajik (front left), rose-flavored agar-agar next to it, and various pulut (glutinous rice)-based dessert at the back.

14_1

They served a very basic ABC or Air Batu Campur. My preference is an over-the-top one. Teh Tarik ('pulled' tea) -

15_1

Tea Malaysian style

16_1

Our night was accompanied by these musicians playing ghazal music. See the ketupat (pressed rice in weaved leaves) lights?
