Nasi Lemak has long been a favourite for Malaysians, especially for breakfast.
Recently, this local delicacy has also been winning over the taste buds of the Dutch after a Malaysian introduced Nasi Lemak in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Malaysian-born, Solehan Manger-Ramli, 44, from Penang moved to Netherlands after marrying Jan-Willem Manger.
Her Nasi Lemak business was first just a hobby before the dish caught the attention of locals.
Now, she sells two variations, one regular at RM30 and the other with chicken rendang at RM40 each.
Bernama earlier reported that that these prices were normal in the Netherlands given the difficulty in finding Malaysian ingredients to prepare the delicacy.
Malaysians residing in the Netherlands, too, support her business and have given her the nickname ‘Kak Ann Ayam Rendang Nasi Lemak’.
Solehan’s dream is to open a Malaysian restaurant in the Netherlands and her husband provides her with the moral support that she needs.
