In Malay, ‘nasi’ means ‘cooked rice’ and ‘goreng’ means ‘fried’. Nasi Goreng is very popular here, many Malaysians eat Nasi Goreng for breakfast, often using leftovers from the previous day's dinner. The rice used to make Nasi Goreng is cooked ahead of time and left to cool down (so it is not soggy), which is one reason to use rice cooked from the day before.
Nasi Goreng Ikan Masin (or Fried rice with salted fish) is my favourite. It's ready to go (if you want to tapau), hot from the wok, appetizing (salted fish?! Oh yeah) and it has all the vitamins too (hmm..). Most Malaysian eateries from mamak stalls to big 5-stars resorts serve Nasi Goreng Ikan Masin and every place has their own unique taste (Chinese, Malay, Indian), that's why I would say this dish will never go out of style. It will always be my personal favourite!
