    I’ve never eaten truly blue food before!

    The sauce was way too spicy for me and I would have liked a little more coconut flavor in the rice, but it was a fun dish

    Blue rice is a new fave!

    The Malaysian Coconut Rice, a beautiful blue, was delicious with all the fixin's (well OK, I admit I ditched the fried anchovies). I added a little kekap manis to the sambal to temper it, added the shrimp option, and oh, did we enjoy it! Please invite Sekali again as a guest chef - any chance of getting a taro root fried ring with chicken or shrimp in it? (hint, hint)

    Excellent ... and blue

    Blue rice is definitely unexpected, but this dish is good overall. The dried anchovy garnish doesn't work well, though. Liked this dish overall, will definitely reorder if it shows up again.

    Loved it!

    Each of the sides beautifully fit together with the rice and meat (shrimp in my case). They complemented one another. I don’t normally eat anchovies but it was so good mixed in with everything else. Portions were generous and equal to 1.5 servings.
