5 Top Nasi Lemak Stalls In KL

Nasi Lemak is the much-heralded national dish of Malaysia and one you can eat any time of the day. Whether you prefer the banana leaf wrapped version (bungkus) or a full plate, itís all about the coconut rice, sambal and ikan bilis.

Village Park Restaurant 
Village Park Restaurant is famed for having the ‘best nasi lemak in town’, and looking at the crowds and returning diners, this could very well be true. For RM9.90, you get fluffy coconut-infused rice, crunchy slices of cucumber, sambal with the just the right amount of spice and succulent fried chicken to ensure every food group is covered – the perfect plate of Malaysian goodness!

Restoran Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa 
What makes this nasi lemak stand out is the sweet and spicy (some say addictive) sambal. Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa has been around since 1980, so it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing. What began as a stall has now become a successful chain with branches in Bangsar, Taman Tun and Kota Damansara. The generous portions of rendang (beef and chicken), fried chicken and ayam masak merah are the perfect foil for the coconut rice (cooked using reduced fat coconut milk).

Jalan Sentul Chinese Nasi Lemak
If the queues are anything to go by, then this Chinese-style version must be really good! Located in Sentul and only opening at 6pm, nasi lemak fans come here for the wide variety of side dishes, with the pork and potato curry and fried luncheon meat being favourites. The rice is on the lighter side of the coconut flavour, there’s always a couple of vegetable dishes to choose from, and you can wash down your meal with their fruit juices.

Nasi Lemak Tanglin
Nasi Lemak Tanglin started out as a humble stall under a tree. Their nasi lemak became so popular, they are now in a food court and also have a food truck in Taman Tun. The recipes have been passed down through the family and they are famed for their squid sambal, which is said to be the ideal combination of tender and chewy (in a good way!). Order the basic nasi lemak (rice, anchovies, peanuts, cucumber) and choose an add-on of beef, chicken, egg or lungs (from the cow and not for the squeamish).

Chong Kok Kopitiam
Chong Kok Kopitiam is a traditional Chinese coffee shop with the mandatory half-boiled eggs, kaya toast and strong cups of steaming kopi-o (local black coffee). It’s a real neighbourhood joint and you can imagine some of the patrons have been coming here for a long time. Their nasi lemak is of the bungkus variety and sells out very quickly in the morning. So if you happen to be in Klang, head here early.
