Best Nasi Lemak in KL & PJ

Best Nasi Lemak in KL & PJ

Nasi lemak is always amazing, but we bring you 12 nasi lemaks to die-for in KL and PJ. Don’t believe us? Try them all today!By the HungryGoWhere team
Nasi lemak needs no introduction. It comes close to being Malaysia’s national dish. A collective favourite, it’s as common as the ‘lahs’ that pepper our speech. With its fluffy fragrant coconut rice, crispy fried anchovies and crunchy nuts, you can have it anywhere, at any time. It’s also a versatile dish with sambal that can range from sweet to savoury at all levels of spiciness. You can even have it with side dishes, the most popular of which is the ayam goreng berempah. From dirt cheap at roadside stalls to a more premium plate in restaurants, we hunted down 12 must-go places to have the best nasi lemaks in town!Village Park @ Damansara UptownVillage Park has made a name for itself over the years and continues to remain a favourite among Malaysians. It’s famous for its nasi lemak ayam goreng berempah and one reason for its popularity might be its consistency, although some may argue the portions have decreased steadily over time. Nevertheless, you can trust the rice to be aromatic and the chicken crispy and nicely seasoned. The sambal here is on the salty side and is just the right amount of spicy. With a healthy helping of peanuts, fried anchovies, and fresh slices of cucumbers, it’s no wonder the place is always crowded.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_village-park_nasi-lemak.jpgPiles of nasi lemak waiting to be devoured
Nasi Lemak Tanglin @ KLStarting out in the 80’s as a tiny stall under a tree opposite Tanglin Hospital, it has remained hugely popular till today. Almost everything you’ll find in Tanglin Nasi Lemak is guaranteed to be delicious. Its rice is fluffy and aromatic, and sambal sweet and runny. Pairing it with their side dishes takes it to another level. We recommend their sambal sotong with sweet and spicy gravy waiting to be soaked up by the rice. For offal lovers, the limpa (spleen) is to die for! Nasi Lemak Tanglin just defies description, it’s an absolute must-try.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-tanglin_side-dishes-1.jpgHow do we even decide? We want everything!

Nasi Lemak Bumbung @ SeaparkAnother nasi lemak hotspot, Nasi Lemak Bumbung is street food in every sense of the phrase. Found in a back alley behind Maybank in Seapark, it’s always filled to the brim with hungry patrons looking for a no-frills nasi lemak ayam goreng. There’s an almost-perpetual crowd, and it’s not surprising as the rice is warm and chicken tender, but the highlight here is most definitely their sambal. It’s the saltier kind that is mildly spicy, bringing everything together perfectly. Portions can be on the small side, but all the more reason to go for seconds and thirds!http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-bumbung_nasi-lemak.jpgWho could forget the all-important egg to top it all off (Photo courtesy of HGWMY user Helen Lai)
Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa @ Kampung BaruOne of the most famous nasi lemak joints in Kampung Baru (and beyond), Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa has been catering to loyal customers since the 80s. Opening in the late evening until late, you can be sure the humble stall will be bursting with people waiting to try their nasi lemak with springy sambal sotong (RM4.50) or chewy paru goreng (RM3.50). Their sambal here is worthy of mention for the sheer fact that they labour over it for six hours. Visit them for yourself to see why they’ve garnered such a huge fanbase.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-antarabangsa_stall-and-nasi-lemak-collage.jpgHave your pick – ayam goreng or sambal sotong?
Nasi Lemak Famous @ BangsarOperating under its signature red tent, Nasi Lemak Famous dishes out delicious nasi lemak ayam goreng berempah with an assortment of side dishes that’s sure to tantalise your tastebuds. Their ayam goreng is well-loved for a reason.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-famous_stall.jpgDishes ready to be snapped up
With meat that was tender and nicely seasoned, we could really taste the rempah it was made with. Other choice picks include their sweet and springy sambal sotong (RM2.50 – RM4), and lumpy and savoury bergedil (RM1.50). Their sambal, while sweet is also spicy, which complemented the milder flavours found in their side dishes. While their rice was disappointingly clumpy and dry plus a hefty bill that came up to RM14 a plate, Nasi Lemak Famous is famous indeed as their tables and chairs are rarely ever empty.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-famous_nasi-lemak.jpgThe best midnight snack
Nasi Lemak @ Peel RoadNasi Lemak Peel Road serves Chinese-style nasi lemak (you can have your pick of regular white rice but that just takes the lemak out of nasi lemak), with the sambal falling on the sweeter side. While there are all-time favourites like curry chicken, sambal cockles, and sambal sotong, the wild boar curry here is a must-have. Tender and bite-sized, it’s bursting with all the flavours that it has stewed in. Complete the meal with the smooth and gelatinous-like sambal sotong and you’re good to go.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak_peel-road_stall.jpgInviting tubs of red-hot curries

Nasi Lemak Medan Selera 223 @ Petaling JayaAt Medan Selera 223, it’s always a showdown between Suri and Yatie.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-223_nasi-lemak-223-collage.jpgDING! We have Suri in the blue corner and in the red, Yatie. Let the fight begin!
The former seems to have garnered more fame, with a selection of dishes to go with their packets of nasi lemak panas. Their sweet sambal has a distinctive taste and packs quite the punch. You may not taste it at first but it will creep up on you.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-223_nasi-lemak-suri.jpgA little bit of everything goes a long way
Yatie, on the other hand, serves just good ‘ol nasi lemak packets. Their sambal is saltier than Suri’s and slightly milder which we personally preferred. Medan Selera 223 may be located in an industrial area but it’s almost always spilling over with a crowd, there to savour the warm freshly-made packets of nasi lemak (both priced at RM1.50 each) from Suri and Yatie.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-223_nasi-lemak-packet-yatie.jpgSan Peng Nasi Lemak @ PuduSan Peng Nasi Lemak is another go-to place for late-night crawlers looking for a hot plate of non-halal nasi lemak. Come 10.00pm, the queue will only get longer and longer.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-san-peng_stall-and-queue.jpgGet in line! A queue like this is already quite forgiving
The rice here was incredibly fragrant and probably made with generous amounts of santan (coconut milk). Fluffy, warm, and grainy, it was the perfect base for their curries and sambal which was on the milder side. Chopped long beans offer an extra crunch or pig out on add-ons like lap cheong (Chinese sausage) and deep fried luncheon meat. A plate of nasi lemak here could easily cost up to RM10 depending on what you take, making it one of the pricier roadside stalls around.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-san-peng_nasi-lemak.jpgThe rice makes the dish
Nasi Lemak CT Garden @ Kampung BaruWhile not as well known as Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa, Nasi Lemak CT Garden is one of Kampung Baru’s established nasi lemak eateries. Line up à la school canteen style for their nasi lemak packets which are the perfect vehicle for a delicious spread of dishes that include paru sambal and tempeh goreng sambal. Plus their rendang daging is as good as any nostalgia-inducing homemade recipe. Be warned, though, the food here is spicy and you’ll be sweating profusely by the time you’re done. It might burn a hole in your mouth but not your wallet (a meal for four came up to a reasonable RM40.50).http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_ct-garden_montage_nasi-lemak-kentang-paru-goreng-assortment-sambal.jpgIt’s easy to get ahead of yourself with all these food calling out to you
Karen’s Nasi Lemak@ Taman DesaKaren’s Nasi Lemak is no stranger to Taman Desa folk, serving nasi lemak with hints of nyonya influence with pickled pineapples, onions, and cucumber (fresh nyonya kuih are also available at RM0.70 a piece). Unabashedly non-halal, one of the signature dishes here is the dry curry wild boar, tender and mildly spicy with textures similar to the rendang tok.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_karens-nasi-lemak_nasi-lemak-packet-with-wild-boar.jpgFor lovers of pork, a nasi lemak packet with a side of wild boar curry is as good as it gets
It also helps that her basic nasi lemak (RM2 small, RM2.50 large) is very well done, with rice that is consistently fluffy and grainy with just the right touch of santan, crispy fried large anchovies, and freshly cut cucumbers. Karen’s sambal is spicy and savoury rather than sweet, just the way we like it. There’s always a line at her stall with patrons hungry for delicious fuss-free nasi lemak.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_karens-nasi-lemak_nasi-lemak-1.jpgFresh off the assembly line with rendang and luncheon meat
Nasi Lemak Sentul @ Jalan SentulAnother non-halal favourite can be found at Nasi Lemak Sentul. You’ll find the usual suspects like the chicken rendang and sambal sotong. While their staples are delicious, the star of the show is their curry pork ribs. The meat was bursting with flavours of the spices it was marinated and cooked in. While their rice was lacking in coconut aroma, the curries will make up for it with their spiciness. Add a slice of luncheon meat to balance it out and you will leave a very happy camper.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-jalan-sentul_nasi-lemak.jpgIt’s just as delicious when packed home
Nasi Lemak @ Wisma Genting Food CourtAn unassuming stall found in between Wisma Genting and Wisma Cosway, the nasi lemak here is the go-to breakfast place for office workers around the area. Hungry salarymen can be seen lining up to fuel up for the day with a piping hot plate of nasi lemak with a selection of curries and fried goods. The nasi lemak here might be more ‘banjir’ than other places but that adds to the tummy-warming factor. There are other breakfast essentials available too like curry puffs and fried bihun. There’s no better way to start the day.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist/best-the-ultimate-nasi-lemak-shortlist_nasi-lemak-wisma-genting_dishes.jpgWith all these goodies, we wish it was open all day

Nasi Lemak Itik Salai at Izwan Woon Abdullah
BY KAR YEONG • JUNE 26, 2013 • 11404

Instead of nasi lemak paired with the usual sotong, ayam goreng and daging rendang, try it with itik salai, aka smoked duckBy KYSpeaks for HungryGoWhere

Nasi lemak itik salai – now that’s something that you don’t commonly see. We are used to nasi lemak paired with sotong (squid), ayam goreng (fried chicken), daging rendang (beef), and for the non-halal version, even pork. But itik salai, aka smoked duck? That’s pretty interesting as far as Malaysia’s national dish nasi lemak goes.http://cdn1.hungrygowhere.my/izwan-woon-abdullah/izwan-woon-abdullah-1.jpgIzwan Woon Abdullah, located just behind Taman Bahagia LRT StationRestoran Izwan Woon Abdullah is one of the rare few that offers this dish. This halal eatery is located just behind Taman Bahagia LRT station at SS3, a few doors down from the famous pork noodle and Lucky Loke tai chow (which literally means “fry up” in Cantonese) at the corner.http://cdn1.hungrygowhere.my/izwan-woon-abdullah/izwan-woon-abdullah-2.jpgNasi lemak itik salai, you don’t see this very oftenhttp://cdn1.hungrygowhere.my/izwan-woon-abdullah/izwan-woon-abdullah-3.jpgThe sambal and the rice itself were quite awesome tooThe restaurant serves nasi lemak and a few other more traditional Malay dishes, but I had to try their nasi lemak itik salai. My plate came with fragrant nasi lemak on a piece of banana leaf, a side of sambal, anchovies and peanuts, half a hard-boiled egg, smoked duck and some brown sauce for the duck. The brown sauce was a waste of time to us. Instead, we asked for more sambal, which was top-notch, spicy, and very flavourful. The duck tasted pretty close to Chinese-style smoked duck but with a slightly different taste that I couldn’t exactly pinpoint. It was good though and certainly a different experience when paired with nasi lemak.http://cdn1.hungrygowhere.my/izwan-woon-abdullah/izwan-woon-abdullah-4.jpgThey have nasi lemak ayam too, and the otak-otak is pretty goodTheir nasi lemak with chicken satisfied one of the biggest nasi lemak fans I know, and the otak otak Johor (RM0.80 per stick) was so delicious, we ordered second servings. Even my friend Suan, who was from Johor approved.The restaurant has been in business some two to three months and I sure hope it stays. I’ve only dined there a couple of times but am looking forward to heading there more often.

Discover the multi-racial interpretations of this perennial Malaysian favourite, the perfect meal any time of the dayBy Karen-Michaela Tan
Because of the ease in which it is to be found, one would be forgiven in thinking that nasi lemak is an easy dish to make. One of Malaysia’s best loved dishes, nasi lemak can be as simple as rice and sambal with slices of cucumber, or expanded into an entire gastronomic meal, with a whole range of condiments which may include rendang, fried chicken, ikan bilis or cockle sambal; eggs, both fried and hard boiled; and fried fish.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/nasi-lemak-feature/nasi-lemak-with-fried-chicken-from-village-park.jpgAs nasi lemak evolved over time, it was no longer confined to the breakfast tableBeing a society where much borrowing (either by design or chance) happens, it is only natural that there are as many variants of nasi lemak in Malaysia as there are skin tones. Nasi lemak has been around even before Malaysia became a nation, being first mentioned in 1909 by Sir Richard Olof Winstedt in his book ‘The Circumstances of Malay Life,’ where he described the dish as rice soaked in, and then steamed with coconut milk.That description continues to remain true for the nasi lemak of today. Any cook will tell you that the success of a nasi lemak will always boil down to the rice and the sambal. All three of Malaysia’s core ethnic groups have their versions of the country’s national dish, but it is largely the Malay and Chinese variants which are most often available.While nasi lemak used to nearly always come pre-packed in banana leaf and newspaper, as Malaysia grew more prosperous, the range of offerings grew to include extra side dishes, thus giving rise to nasi lemak sold in Styrofoam or plastic boxes in order to accommodate the bigger portions of rice and meats.RiceWhen it comes to the rice, Malay nasi lemak is often the most fragrant, as it is made with fresh coconut milk infused with lemongrass. Knots of screw pine, or pandan leaves are always added to the mixture of raw rice and coconut milk, for its aroma.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/nasi-lemak-feature/nasi-lemak-with-paru-goreng-from-ra.jpgThe rice is the leading star of the show, make no mistake about itSome nasi lemak vendors subscribe to a trade secret of preparing the rice, where they cook the rice with water the night before, and then add coconut milk and pandan leaves in the morning for the final steaming, to complete the process. According to one nasi lemak hawker, this keeps the rice fresher for longer.The Chinese variant of the rice sometimes uses less coconut milk, or an even distribution of water and coconut milk, resulting in grainier and harder rice. Rice cooked in more coconut milk tends to look whiter and will be softer and mushier than rice with less santan. The Chinese also tend to steam their rice with ginger, as they believe it drives out wind and flatulence which coconut milk can cause. The Indian community rarely puts any kind of herb into their rice and coconut milk mixture, in deference to some of their clientele who may be strict vegetarians. Ginger and garlic are deemed to have aphrodisiac properties and are avoided by Hindus trying to live austere lives.SambalAfter the rice, sambal is the most important component of the nasi lemak. A basic sambal is made from a paste of ground chillies (chili boh, usually commercially made), fresh red chillies, garlic, ginger, and sliced onions. Vegetarian Indians omit the last three and substitute with tomatoes and tamarind juice instead.Malay sambal tends to be hotter and sweeter, while Chinese sambal may be more pungent, as some cooks add belacan (dried shrimp paste) to their mix for a stronger aroma and flavour. Many Malay cooks add lime juice, for tanginess in the sambal, and use a mixture of shallots (small red onions) and yellow onions for a better balance of sweetness and astringency.Indian vegetarian nasi lemak is usually sold in packets, and is very basic, seeing that there can be no fried ikan bilis or even egg. Therefore most packets simply contain rice, sambal, some fried nuts and a slice of fried tofu. Basic, but if done correctly, still filling and fulfilling.CondimentsThe Malays offer the most number of accompanying dishes to the basic nasi lemak. Any nasi lemak stall worth its wares will have at least two variants of chicken, a beef, and cuttlefish or squid as a side dish to go with the basic nasi. Some even have cockles, tempeh (fermented soy bean cakes either deep-fried or in sambal), deep-fried beef lungs, and the vegetable most associated with nasi lemak – stir-fried kangkung (water spinach). Every vendor worth her coconut leaves will also offer a choice of either a hard-boiled egg or fried bullseye egg.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/nasi-lemak-feature/zam-zam-nasi-lemak-2.jpgYour tastebuds recognise that ‘tasty’ and ‘delicious’ manifest themselves under different guisesChinese nasi lemak rarely has this spread of dishes, save when it is prepared at home, and the family gathers for a slap-up-bust-the-waistband kind of meal; in which case the sky is the limit, with curry chicken, prawn sambal, fried luncheon meat, and vegetable acar. Most Chinese nasi lemak sellers operate from coffee shops and sell a basic dish of sambal, cucumber, egg, ikan bilis, and a choice of either chicken rendang or chicken curry. Some Chinese nasi lemak stalls offer pork rendang or sometimes even wild boar curry to differentiate themselves from other traders.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/nasi-lemak-gallery/nasi-lemak-antarabangsa.jpgA piece of banana leaf adds fragrance when combined with steaming hot fluffy riceHere are some spots we recommend to get your fill of nasi lemak today:Village Park Restaurant | Address: 5, Jalan SS21/37, Damansara Utama, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor | Tel: 03-77107860 | Opening hours: 7.00am – 7.30pm daily, 7.00am – 6.00pm on public holidays | HalalNasi Lemak Bumbung | Address: Jalan 21/11B, Petaling Jaya (North) Klang Valley 46300 | Opening hours: Mon – Sun 5:30 pm – 4:00 am | GPS coordinates: 3.1098054 , 101.6224358 | Halal

Sambal Hijau nasi campur in Kampung Sungai Penchala
BY YAP PIK KUAN • OCTOBER 9, 2014 • 400

Serving the most dazzling array of traditional kampung-style Malay dishes, Sambal Hijau’s nasi campur selection will leave you truly spoiled for choiceBy Yap Pik Kuan
Located right next to a mosque just after entering Kampung Sungai Penchala off the Penchala highway, Sambal Hijau is hard to miss. While it opens at 7.00am every day, the crowd only really starts to come in during lunchtime (11.30am onwards) when the restaurant brings out the bulk of their delectable nasi campur spread.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/review-sambal-hijau-kampung-sungai-penchala/review-sambal-hijau_interior.jpgTables and chairs are laid out closely canteen-style so it’s totally normal to be elbowing a stranger while chowing down on delicious foodhttp://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/review-sambal-hijau-kampung-sungai-penchala/review-sambal-hijau_nasi-campur-spread_collage.jpgWith such a big selection, it can be hard to control yourself when heaping on the foodThere were no less than 50 delicious dishes to choose from and we were greeted by the sight and smell of aromatic curries, grilled meats, and stir-fried vegetables with prices ranging anywhere from RM1 to RM4 or up to RM15 for more premium items.The system at Sambal Hijau is simple. Grab a huge plate of rice, head over to the ulam table for fresh vegetables, salads, and seriously spicy sambals and chillies before heading over to the buffet proper to pile on the food.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/review-sambal-hijau-kampung-sungai-penchala/review-sambal-hijau_ulam_01.jpgThere is a selection of ulam to go with spicy sambal and chilli dipshttp://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/review-sambal-hijau-kampung-sungai-penchala/review-sambal-hijau_ulam_02.jpgRaw vegetables are available too for those who want crisp and fresh flavoursWe immediately went for the grilled chicken. Crisp on the outside, the meat was juicy, tender, and bursting with savoury flavours from its rempah marinade. Alternatively, fish lovers can head straight for the fried fish or ikan bakar. Seasoned with spicy sambal and cooked to perfection, the fish was so fresh they flaked off in delicious chunks.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/review-sambal-hijau-kampung-sungai-penchala/review-sambal-hijau_plate_01.jpgA little bit of everything makes for a delicious and varied mealhttp://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/review-sambal-hijau-kampung-sungai-penchala/review-sambal-hijau_fried-fish.jpgFreshly fried fish just adds on to the enormous amount of dishes available at Sambal HijauWith a huge selection of gulais and curries to choose from, we fell back on the classic chicken rendang.

Best Nasi Melayu @ KL & PJ
BY YAP PIK KUAN • JULY 1, 2014 • 23773

Delve into the heart of traditional Malay cuisine with these top 5 awesome rice dishes loved by allBy Yap Pik Kuan
Malaysia, much like its Southeast Asian neighbours, is a nation of rice lovers. From long- to short-grain, white to brown and everything in between, rice is the perfect accompaniment to any curry or condiment. In honour of five classic Malay rice dishes, we have selected the best stalls and restaurants where you can fulfil your cravings for nasi kandar, nasi kerabu, nasi briyani, nasi dagang, and nasi campur.Zainul Nasi Kandar @ PJ New TownLocated in the MBPJ Food Court near A&W, expect to find a long line of customers waiting to get their hands on a healthy helping of nasi kandar from Zainul. You’ll be spoilt for choice with a selection of dishes ranging from meats to vegetables.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-nasi-melayu-klpj/best-nasi-melayu-kl-pj_zainul-nasi-kandar_kitchen.jpgHuge takeaway packets of rice
Zainul is known for their fried chicken which comes in two sizes (RM5 for small, RM7.50 for large). Our small piece was still quite a big chunk and juicy. They were also very generous with the servings, piling on two large pieces of succulent squid and heaping on the curries. Our nasi kandar with a mountain of rice, squid, chicken, and fish came up to RM20.50. Pricey but the serving was big enough for two, incredibly filling and delicious.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-nasi-melayu-klpj/best-nasi-melayu-kl-pj_zainul-nasi-kandar_nasi-kandar.jpgThey don’t call it nasi banjir for nothing

For Ramadhan, they’ll be closing later at 8.00pm.Nasi Kerabu @ Jalan SemarakIt’s hard to find good and cheap traditional nasi kerabu in town but look no further than the nasi kerabu at Selera Semarak. The rice is distinguishably stained blue from pea flowers (bunga telang) and served with a good sprinkling of shredded cabbage and chopped long beans plus the all-important kerisik (toasted ground coconut), a must-have in every nasi kerabu. If you’re feeling particularly carnivorous, you can throw in a piece of fried chicken. The dish was positively bursting with flavours from the crispness of the vegetables to the distinct aroma of the rice rounded by the sweet kerisik. Best part is, the whole dish only cost RM5.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-nasi-melayu-klpj/best-nasi-melayu-kl-pj_selera-semarak_nasi-kerabu.jpgTrue blue nasi kerabu
Nasi Dagang Anak East Coast @ SS2Anak East Coast serves quality Northern Malaysian cuisine and it’s not surprising that nasi dagang (RM8) is one of their centrepieces. Literally translated to mean ‘trade rice’, it’s said to have sustained merchants and travellers on their adventures way back when they made frequent journeys away from home. Their rice struck a perfect balance between the fenugreek seeds and coconut milk, aromatic and a touch creamy. The fish curry, a crucial component of nasi dagang, fell off flaky, piquant with flavours of lemon grass and turmeric. Even without the kerisik, the dish was filled with flavours aplenty with a kerabu salad and salted egg.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-nasi-melayu-klpj/best-nasi-melayu-kl-pj_anak-east-coast_nasi-dagang.jpgNasi dagang – wholesome and delicious
Gerai Nasi Biryani Special & Fried Chicken @ Medan PasarAlso known as Nasi Biryani Tajudin, this humble stall is hidden in an alleyway not far from Central Market. They serve no-frills cheap nasi biryani in the heart of the city. But be warned, the place can get really crowded as lunchtime approaches. And let’s not even start on parking (it’s virtually non-existent). Yet people flock to Tajudin’s, some even claiming it’s the best nasi briyani in town – we’re inclined to believe them. A simple chicken briyani will only set you back RM5, and lamb RM6. While the meat portion was on the small side, with that kind of pricing in the city, we’re not complaining.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-nasi-melayu-klpj/best-nasi-melayu-kl-pj_nasi-biryani-tajudin_biryani-packet.jpgBiryani packet – best value for money!
Nasi Campur Tupai Tupai @ KLDine in style at Tupai Tupaiwith its charming rustic setting of wooden beams and thatched roof. For lunch, the restaurant serves about 50 types of dishes, a fair amount of lauk for the usual nasi campur. From 11.00am to 3.00pm, have your share of all manners of stir-fries, curries, stews, and deep-fried foods from various meats to vegetables. Laid out in stainless steel containers à la buffet style, you can pile on as much (or as little, but why would you?) as you want. Their fried chicken sells like hot cakes, running out faster than it can be made. Along with favourites like asam pedas fish, ikan bakar, squid sambal, and bergedil (fried potato patties), your belly will thank you for the fulfilling meal.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/best-nasi-melayu-klpj/best-nasi-melayu-kl-pj_tupai-tupai_nasi-campur-spread.jpgYou will be spoilt for choice

Capital Nasi Dagang Kelantan in PJ

Enjoy a taste of the east coast with this rich, fragrant and delicious rice dishBy Alice Yong
Klang Valley residents are making a beeline to Capital Nasi Dagang Kelantan to satisfy their craving for nasi dagang – a popular rice dish originating from the east coast.Visitors to Malaysia’s east coast will find folks there are more likely to start their day with nasi dagang(translated to trader’s rice) for breakfast unlike their west coast counterparts who usually prefer nasi lemak.Word has it that in the old days, sea-faring merchants and itinerant traders who embarked on long, arduous journeys would pack this fragrant rice which is enriched with coconut milk and infused with aromatics such as fenugreek, shallot, ginger and lemongrass, together with some gulai ikan (fish curry) to sustain them whilst they ventured to their destinations.While the Kelantanese use beras nasi dagang (brown-speckled rice that’s steamed twice with coconut milk resulting in its semi-glutinuous texture) for their nasi dagang, Terengganu folks usually prepare theirs with a mixture of glutinous and normal rice. Ubiquitous accompaniments include gulai ikan tongkol (local tuna fish curry) or gulai kawah (east coast-style beef curry cooked in a huge wok) with condiments such as sambal, pickled vegetables, fried silverfish and fried salted fish.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/capital-nasi-dagang-kelantan-pj-gallery/entrance.jpgCapital Nasi Dagang Kelantan – now in PJ!In Kota Bahru, Kelantan, Capital Cafe is one of the most popular nasi dagang restaurants. Now the eatery has spread its wings to the Klang Valley, to ply its trademark rice speciality in a simple, coffee shop-style setting.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/capital-nasi-dagang-kelantan-pj-gallery/interior.jpgComfortable premises that come with marble-top tables and chairshttp://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/capital-nasi-dagang-kelantan-pj-gallery/serving-counter.jpgAt the nasi dagang station, go crazy!Our order of ultimate nasi dagang capital (RM18.90) turned out to be an indulgent rice platter that was laden with various types of curry: gulai ikan tongkol, chicken curry, curried squid and prawns, and beef rendang. A piece of fried salted fish, some crispy fried silverfish, cucumber pickles, sambal paste and half a hard-boiled egg complete the ensemble of goodies.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/capital-nasi-dagang-kelantan-pj-gallery/nasi-dagang-capital-ultimate-2.jpgDon’t drool, just head over there yourselfThose unfamiliar with Kelantanese nasi dagang may find the slightly sticky rice a tad sweet for them but this is exactly how I remember the dish tasted from my visit to Kota Bahru last year. Although the rice was doused in curry gravy, its rich creaminess with a subtly sweet, nutty aftertaste was discernible on the palate.The delicious prawn and chicken curries also hit the spot for us. Despite its somewhat rubbery texture, the squid was palatable enough. We also like the beef rendang for its melt-in-the-mouth tenderness and deeply aromatic and tasty kuah (spice blend gravy).http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/capital-nasi-dagang-kelantan-pj-gallery/nasi-kahwin-is-a-mixture-of-nasi-dagang-with-white-rice.jpgMarry this Nasi Kahwin to your belly right nowAlternatively, try the nasi kahwin which comprises a mixture of normal white and brown-flecked rice served with your choice of two curries (RM12.90). Other delectable rice options include nasi lemak (RM8.90) and nasi ayam goreng berempah (RM8.90) which included a chunky piece of flavourful spice-marinated fried chicken (available as a side dish at RM3.50 per piece). Come weekends, diners will have a chance to sample lakso (RM6.90) – a Kelantanese-style rice noodle dish in tangy, creamy fish and coconut milk gravy.http://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/media2.hungrygowhere.my/capital-nasi-dagang-kelantan-pj-gallery/roti-kahwin-comprises-toasted-bread-spread-with-butter-and-kaya.jpgIf the rice wasn’t enough for you, there’s always roti bakarSoft-boiled eggs with toasted or steamed bread are also available. Spread generously with butter and homemade kaya (coconut and egg jam), the thickly sliced toast served as the perfect sweetener to wrap up our brunch
