You want Delicious, Natural Blue Rice? You've got it! All 50 Shades of Natural Blue.
These restaurants and private caterers in Australia are famous for their Bunga Telang Nasi Kerabu (blue rice) made with our natural Butterfly Pea! That means they are free of synthetic or artificial ingredients or additives.
The Butterfly Blue Pea flowers are the only superfood plant that gives you a natural blue colouring with no nasties, no caffeine.
Places to find Nasi Kerabu in Australia
Nasi Kerabu is making waves in Australia and it can be found at the following
cafes/restaurants/private caterers. Their Nasi Kerb is made with all My Blue Tea's natural Butterfly Pea flowers or Butterfly Pea powders. Sometimes these caterers or restaurants have them in Nasi Lemak marbled blue and white or light blue. They are gorgeous!
The latest restaurant that has joined the Nasi Kerabu trend is Nan Yang Malaysian & Thai. Western Sydney's favourite authentic Malaysian and Thai cuisine, proudly using Halal Certified produce is located at LITTLE SAIGON PLAZA, 462 Chapel Rd Bankstown.
The original and first Nanyang is "Nanyang Tea Club" which burst into the scene in 2018 with their signature dark blue all natural Butterfly Pea Rice called Nasi Kerabu at Dining 3rd Floor, Haymarket Sydney.
The Nanyang chain of restaurants now includes Nanyang Malaya Cafe and Nanyang Malaya Restaurant which serve authentic Malaysian Singaporean cuisine for lunch and dinner in Marrickville and newly opened in July this year at Macquarie Park, 297 Lane Cove Rd, Macquarie Park NSW 2113.

Some pretty blue rice in marbled Nasi Lemak by Sweet Rita Nyonya Kueh. We love the Nasi Lemak presentation by Indulgence. Made in Adelaide with large prawns and "modern natural blue rice in boat". It is so gorgeous for private catering e.g. birthdays and weddings. The last photo is by Flavours by Dee in Sydney.

My Blue Tea is looking for Cafes and Restaurants around Australia, in particular in Darwin and Tasmania. We have requests from our clients and friends who would love to savour Nasi Kerabu and Blue Tea in your local area. Email us firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us through our website.
And not to forget, Nasi Lemak is Malaysia's national food and we have 2 bundles available - Pandan Nasi Lemak and Blue Nasi Lemak - or create your own Nasi Kerabu at home if you're overseas or in regional Australia.
So what is the difference between Nasi Kerabu and Nasi Lemak?
It depends on the ingredients served
A typical Nasi Kerabu traditionally must have blue-coloured rice (coloured with blue flower extract), fish, chicken, salted egg, vegetables, fish crackers and most importantly — the budu condiment made of fish sauce and fish flakes on top.
This is Nasi Lemak with fragrant Coconut Rice and Chicken curry with all the condiments.
Nasi Lemak has Pandan Coconut rice, fried anchovies, hard boiled egg, sambal and Rendang or Ayam Goreng Berempah (spiced fried chicken), cucumber and peanuts.
Both are amazing and it's eaten all day in Malaysia and Singapore, even for breakfast!
