Nasi Lemak @ Restoran Irshat, Bandar Sri Permaisuri

Quickie Review

Today's Nasi Lemak Monday brings you a very 'kenyang' one in Bandar Sri Permaisuri...

If you're hangkering for a nasi lemak to start your week and happen to be in Bandar Sri Permaisuri, check out Restoran Irshat. It's a regular mamak shop, but skip the roti and go for the nasi lemak bungkus on the tables.



They're straightforward nasi lemaks, but the portion is huge. At first glance it looks like just rice and sambal, but that's just the way it is packed. Fiddle around a bit and beneath you'll find cucumbers, ikan bilis and wedge of boiled egg. The rice is tender and taste quite 'lemak', if not that fragrant. The sambal might look fierce, but is actually pretty mellow. Have the nasi lemak with a glass of teh o'. Be prepared to feel full the entire morning.

Best of all? It's only RM1.50.

Nasi Lemak 6 Time @ Kota Damansara

Quickie Review

Nasi Lemak Monday is back! Sorry for the hiatus, but let's kick off this return with a pretty tasty one from Kota Damansara...

Sometimes a nasi lemak doesn't need too many accompaniments or lauk. A simple basic one can be just as satisfying and a good way to kick off your day.


A quintessential packet of nasi lemak...

Nasi Lemak 6 Time is sold in a small make-shift stall in front of SMK Seksyen 4 Kota Damansara, just in front of a TNB 'pencawang'. They're cheap: RM1 a pack! The brother that sells it runs out by about 930am so get it quick if you want one.

The nasi lemak is a quintessential one. Just rice, sambal tumis ikan bilis and and a boiled egg. The rice is firm and crumbly when unpacked. It is not too fatty either, which makes it light eating... and also means you can probably eat more than one! The sambal packs quite a punch, though. Spicy with a subtle sweetness, it's just the thing to wake up your tongue.

Nasi Lemak Ujang @ Taman Greenwood

Quickie Review

It's Monday again? So it's another Nasi Lemak Monday! Today's nasi lemak shout-out is for the stall that had the longest lines during our 'I Eat Nasi Lemak' event last year. They go through 100kgs of rice a year, so you know it's going to be good..

Rice is the star here: soaked, par-cooked by steaming, cooled, then steamed again before the coconut milk is added. The result? A crumbly, fragrant, deliciously coconut-ty and nutty rice that pairs wonderful with their range of lauk.



Go for the basics: their sambal is thick with chili and onions, and is a luxurious, unctious version of this compulsory accompaniment. The flavours are deep and rich, and not too spicy either so you can enjoy this without scalding your tongue. Don’t forget to try their lauks as well; they have quite a wide array, from ayam goreng, to various sambals (sotong being wonderful!)…  Continue reading »

Nasi Lemak near Masjid Bukit Indah

by Honey, on Mon, February 24, 2014 - 7:30:46 AM, 0 comment
Quickie Review

This week's Nasi Lemak Mondays brings us to Bukit Indah in Ampang where every morning you are spoilt for choice. There's a nasi lemak on every corner and then some. This is one of our favourites.



This unnamed stall is run (like most makeshift nasi lemak vendors) by a husband and wife team. Sambal here is plenty spicy with a good after bite. At first it seems to overwhelm the rice but after a few mouthfuls you realise that the rice has a subtle 'lemak-ness' that wins you over as you carry on eating. What's good here is the ayam masak merah and the sambal paru ain't bad either. However, being a kerang fan this particular morning this is my deal. It's fresh and spicy- a noteworthy kerang dish.



A nasi lemak kerang sets you back RM4. Ayam merah with fried egg is about RM5.50. They also sell kuihs like curry puffs and burger Malaysia. All…  Continue reading »

International Buffet @ Maya Brasserie, Hotel Maya

Quickie Review

I don't know about you but I love hotel buffets. There's always a lot of good food, and the lunch buffet at Hotel Maya is no exception. It's a smaller buffet than what you'd usually see in high-end hotels.

Zen-like ambience

Small doesn't mean lacking, though. The buffet menu is extensive enough to offer a wide selection, but it is not too overwhelming. I particularly like the atmosphere of the restaurant: it's modern without being too kitschy.

It's a lovely restaurant

Start your makan-makan with handmade sushi. There's fresh sashimi as well for you raw food lovers.

Yummy, fresh sushi

You can also slurp down oysters and scallops on the half shell, as much as your tummy can hold. The oysters, in particular, were fresh and briny.…  Continue reading »

Gerai 13 @ Medan Selera Jalan Raja Muda Abdul Aziz

Quickie Review

Nasi Lemak Monday time! This week we go to what can be called a 'heartland' of sorts for good Malay good, Kampung Bharu...

The nasi lemak at Gerai 13 is a combo punch: you have to have it in harmony with all the ingredients. The rich, coconutty nasi goes brilliant with their crimson sambal. Up the ante with chunks of beef rendang and pieces of squid that gets cut up into bite sized slices when you order a plate of nasi lemak here. Order the rendang and sotong together for a little nasi lemak surf 'n' turf. It'll only run you about RM4 for a plate,

Nasi lemak surf 'n' turf.

Do come early though, as even at 730hrs the queue can get quite long.

Nasi Lemak ‘Bakul’ @ Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam

Quickie Review

Nasi Lemak Monday time! Today we're checking out a 'brader' that sells nasi lemak in a basket in front of a supermarket. Sometimes, good food doesn't mean it comes from a cafe. From a 'bakul' also can!

In front of the My Mydin supermarket in the hilly neighbourhood of Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam, a 'brader' is always there in the mornings selling packets of nasi lemak from a 'bakul' (origins of bakul cannot be traced back to the Mydin he works in front of...). On weekdays, one can see a bunch of cars dropping by to get nasi lemak from him. He sells basic packets of nasi lemak; egg, ikan bilis, ayam goreng. Take your pick. They're all good, quintessential nasi lemaks, with no frills, just deliciousness. Do take note it is tapau only.



The Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng* (RM3.50) here is fragrant and wrapped in banana leaf and wax paper. It is not too 'lemak' tasting, which makes it a light and easy nasi lemak to start off your Mondays with. The sambal is more…  Continue reading »
