PETALING JAYA, Oct 24 — An extremely creative, albeit ludicrous effort to jazz up his nasi lemak left a bad taste in the mouth for many Malaysians when Twitter user Syafeeq FaXys introduced the nasi lemak cheese.
With unorthodox food trends usually revolving around the addition of cheese or durian — plus a whole host of other ingredients that are not used traditionally — Syafeeq’s experiment of adding grated cheese to regular nasi lemak before popping it into a microwave oven to melt it, did not exactly produce a culinary hit as he would have hoped for.

Many were not amused by the mix with some even claiming there is a special place in hell for those who dare mix nasi lemak with cheese.
Just no… https://t.co/62HRQSqgwS

The one on the right looks like someone regurgitated hydrochloric acid from its stomach upon seeing the photo on the left.
Whoever thought of putting cheese on nasi lemak should undergo exorcism.

But it wasn’t all bad news for nasi lemak lovers out there, with at least one person having a DIY go at the dish. Do you reckon you’ll be trying it out too?
