This was my very first time to try Malay food in Japan and Malay Asian Cuisine was really really good. My Bruneian friend Amy and I ordered Nasi Lemak and we both loved it!! The chef is Malay and the sambal is their original. The whole menu is halal and they use halal meat only, but they do serve alcohol (I’m not sure if any restaurant in Tokyo can survive without selling alcohol…).

These are real candies coated with resin!! I immediately fell in love with these from nanaco plus+ (http://www.nanaco-plus.com/jp/index.html) that would go so well with Yukata fashion and the mood of summer in Japan. Konpeito is too cute!!
