NASI KUKUS BOSS TAIPAN SETIA ALAM
Today we chose to review Maggi Tom Yum from Nasi Kukus Boss restaurant located in Taipan Setia Alam. Maggi Tom Yam is quite famous among Malaysians and will be available almost everywhere. Maggi Tom Yum is usually available with prawns, chicken, or beef and we can add mushrooms and other ingredients. It is a signature food in Malaysia usually eaten for dinner.
Nasi Kukus Boss was officially opened in the year 2019, 10th October. The owner of Nasi Kukus Boss is a Malay Kelantan individual. The restaurant looks quite simple just like any other Malay restaurant but one unique thing about Nasi Kukus Boss is that they play all-time famous local songs that make customers feel déjà vu. They have a variety of Maggi Tom Yum available on their menus, such as Ayam Penyet, Ayam Geprek, and many more. The price of all the food varieties available is less expensive as it is below RM10 and almost everyone can afford it. The taste is quite unique as they have a special ingredient which they would not disclose to the public.
The Maggi Tom Yum we bought is for just only RM8 and if we wanted to add extra rice or soup, we have to pay just RM1. Not only that, another specialty of Nasi Kukus Boss is that they provide lunch set menus which is suitable for individuals who do not have enough time in hand to cook at home due to their busy schedules. They also provide fresh drinks such as orange, watermelon, and many more varieties. They also have milkshakes, tea, coffee, and soft drinks as well. Furthermore, the restaurant is suitable for family dinners because they have special family dinner sets and for the kids, customers can request to make it less spicy.
The Tom Yum broth was exceptionally flavorful and we can taste the individual flavors like ginger in the mix. It is definitely worth having around in the pantry for the days when one wants to have something quick to eat. Moreover, it is no doubt that most Malaysians love to eat Maggi Tom Yam and have the willingness to travel to try new kinds of food. We would definitely recommend Nasi Kukus Boss if anyone would like to try out a tasty Maggi Tom Yam. The capturing signature taste of Maggi Tom Yam is also famous in our neighboring countries as well.
One of the employees at Nasi Kukus Boss explained how Tom Yum paste is prepared. It is prepared by crushing the herbal ingredients and frying them in oil. Then, add seasoning and other ingredients. The paste is sold all over the world in bottles and packs as well but at Nasi Kukus Boss, it is prepared by talented chefs. The paste made using fresh herb ingredients are much tastier than those in bottles or packs.
The soup would be often mixed with prawns, chicken, or beef depending on the customer’s preference. It also has sour and spicy flavors. As a base for the soup to which water, herbs, and meat are added, a paste called Nam Prik Pao is added. Roasted chilies, shallots, and garlic are used to prepare the Nam Prik Pao and the ingredients are best grilled on a charcoal fire
In conclusion, the Maggi Tom Yum is a local food well known not in just Malaysia but all over the world, especially in the Asian region. It can attract people who love spicy and sour food. Nasi Kukus Boss is located in a strategic location that people can easily access and the marketing carried out by them are effective. As it is a new place, we hope that they will receive more customers and open more branches. The pandemic has affected all the businesses around the world and we do not hope Nasi Kukus Boss or any other local food restaurants or street food vendors to be affected.
