Nasi Lemak at Pasar Seksyen 6, Shah Alam

A pasar is always a good place to get yummy food, Nasi Lemak included!

Pasar Seksyen 6, Shah Alam is one of the smaller pasars around, but it still has loads to offer. Fresh vegetables and fruits to meats and seafood, it is also one of the more affordable pasars to shop at. Of course, there's plenty of good eats too.

This nasi lemak being sold at the pasar is what I like to call the 'quintessential' type. Nasi, sambal, cucumber, a slice of omelette and crunchy nuts and ikan bilis. The nasi is densely packed and quite creamy with santan.


Classic nasi lemak.

The sambal tumis ikan bilis strikes just the perfect balance between sweet and spicy, and plays well with the salty ikan bilis and mellow slice of omelette.

For less than RM2, it's a pretty good bargain.  Continue reading »

Let's check out some of the best nasi lemak in Shah Alam for our Nasi Lemak Monday this week..

As with any other city in the Klang Valley (or Malaysia, come to think of it), Shah Alam is chock-a-block full on nasi lemak sellers. Shops, stalls, people going around carrying baskets of the stuff and not to mention the ones you'll find at the pasar pagi and pasar malams. You're spoilt for choice. Here are three of our current picks. Expect this list to expand soon!

Nasi Lemak Pak Ayob
(stall behind Petronas Seksyen 20, in front of KPJ Selangor Medical Center)



One of the big names in the Shah Alam nasi lemak scene. They were part of our I EAT NASI LEMAK event last year and with good reason. Their 8-hour slow cooked sambal is just packed with flavour and is rich, sweet and spicy. The nasi is wonderfully 'lemak' as well. Portions are huge so if you're hungry this is the one to go for.

Nasi Lemak @ Ellysal, Pasar TTDI

Nasi Lemak Monday this week takes us to Pasar Besar Taman Taman Tun Dr. Ismail...

I love TTDI's pasar. It's clean, organized and full of good produce. As a bonus on the upper floor there are some pretty good makan spots as well. That's where I found Ellysal Makanan & Minuman (absolutely adore the name, so 'no frills'). There was a queue of people and when I checked it out, of course it was for nasi lemak.

Naturally, I ordered one.


The simple ones are always the nicest

The shop has quite a selection of dishes but I always go for fried chicken. The rice is crumbly and light while still packing the requisite 'lemakness' from santan. I loved the sambal! Spicy with a kick but with a gentle underlying sweetness. The fried chicken was also surprisingly well seasoned and tasty. My only gripe is that it was a bit cold when I got to it. The other condiments were fine too.

All in all, a great way to either 1) start your shopping…  Continue reading »

Nasi Lemak Kak Sofia

Quickie Review

As soon as you step out of your car, you can smell the inviting aromas coming from Kak Sofia’s stall. Kak Sofia has been at Mutiara Damansara for about 6 years and her nasi lemak is a popular breakfast option among the residents there.

A great little early morning nasi lemak

Kak Sofia’s nasi lemak has a subtle flavour, it’s not too creamy or rich, well-balanced with just soft notes of coconut milk. The rice is wonderfully non-clumpy, each grain separating with just a nudge of your spoon. Her sambal is red and thick, not too sweet and not too spicy. You can only taste the heat in your first bite, as soon as you mix it with the rice, the heat disappears.

Delicious daging kunyit with coconut rice... mmm...

There is an array of lauks on offer. Her more popular ones are the sambal sotong and daging kunyit.…  Continue reading »

Usop Burger Celup

Take a moment to feast your eyes on the picture below.

The special at Usop Burger Celup

This is one of the finest examples of a 'celup'-style street burger. In this case it's an oblong patty dipped in a thick a peppery black pepper sauce, then wrapped up in egg with more sauces and vegetables. Usop plies his trade from a little food truck and on most nights, he's steady at the grill as orders come in non-stop. In one night he sells from 3 to 4 bags of buns, that's about 150 burgers- not bad for a guys who started doing it part time.

When we chatted with him, Usop can't even sit down because of orders

Although there are many burger 'celup' out there, Usop's burgers are quite addictive probably due to the fact that he fries up his burgers then dip them in his black pepper 'berhantu' while it's still hot. He leaves it in so that…  Continue reading »

Nasi Lemak Kak Long, Taman Bukit Subang

Here's another round of Nasi Lemak Mondays!

'Bestnya', as Malaysians say, that there are just so many nasi lemak places in and around KL. It really is an anytime, anyday kinda food. This week we're checking out Nasi Lemak Kak Long from Taman Bukit Subang.


Yes it's messy, but hey, it's nasi lemak!

Kak Long's nasi lemak is lightly tinted green and is very creamy from the santan used. In fact this is the kind of nasi lemak that you HAVE to have it spicy. Luckily the sambal is more than happy to oblige: hot and spicy. Up the ante with her rendang kerang. Juicy cockles are cooked in a savoury, thick rendang gravy that is deeply spiced yet not overbearing. A good combination all for RM4.

Nasi Lemak Gmie D’Kota

Nasi Lemak Monday is here again!

At Section 6 Kota Damansara is Nasi Lemak Gmie D'Kota. It's a simple stall selling nasi lemak bungkus in amusing packets that kinda look like teepees (you know, the Native American tents...).



The nasi lemak is a simple, straightforward affair. is not too creamy with santan so it makes light eating. The deep red sambal tumis ikan biis is surprisingly quite mild so this is a good nasi lemak for wussy tongues. Half a boiled egg rounds off the packet along with fresh, crunchy cucumber. If you're into a light nasi lemak for breakfast or brunch, Gmie D'Kota's nasi lemak might just be the thing.

In front of Palma Putri Apartment,
Jalan Cecawi 6/6, Kota Damansara
47810, Petaling Jaya.  Continue reading »
