For Tommy and Camie Lai, owning their own restaurant was practically destiny. After all, the siblings were raised in a small town north of Kuala Lumpur whose name means "taste" in Malay. That town eventually became the namesake for their restaurant, Rasa, where the Lais serve a fusion of their home country's street and comfort foods. Tommy, the first Malaysian chef to receive a Michelin star, serves as head chef, though Camie's experience as a restaurateur has made her a more than capable menu designer and co-chef. They're so in-tune with their native food, in fact, that the Village Voice said, of the Malaysian restaurants in New York, "none present the level of authenticity" that Rasa does.
Perhaps not surprisingly, the Lais' massive talents have yielded an equally massive menu, comprising everything from fried-rice dishes to Malaysian-inspired sushi and sashimi. Tommy's specialty dishes include one of the siblings' personal favorites: nasi lemak—a mixture of curried chicken with anchovies, boiled egg, and coconut rice that they have considered including in their family portrait.
