George Town - Nasi Melayu Kak Ema

This is a familiar sight all across Malaysia - banana-leaf wrapped cones pre-made and ready to be purchased to take away.

Nasi Melayu Kak Ema was tucked along the side of a street we frequently took when walking to and from our hotel. Needing something for breakfast one morning, we stopped in.

The contents of these parcels are almost always very similar to this:

Nasi lemak with sambal, ikan bilis, and a bit of hard-cooked egg.

We could eat this on a regular basis - and it's no wonder that many Malaysians do.

We also got some sweets to go.

The green ones were pandan-flavored, both with sweet fillings. The other had custard inside.
