BR Corner for Soto & Nasi Lemak

by Arslan Z. on Tue, February 27, 2018

BR Corner has been at the same spot in Desa Pandan since 1997. That itself shows that this quaint little warung has a special place in the hearts of the locals here.

The kind of pedas that you’ll keep coming back for!

Recommended by our Chef in Residence Lisa, who loves the Soto and stands by it - we finally went for taste-test at BR Corner. Fellow foodies, this place serves pretty legit Soto and we also discovered that the Nasi Lemak here is quite a crowd pleaser, up to a point where it was recognised as one of the Top 50 Nasi Lemak in Malaysia by the Malaysian Tourism Board. It doesn't end there because the Laksa Utara is a force to be reckoned with as well.

BR Corner’s Nasi Lemak is loaded with flavours, especially the notably spicy Sambal. “Pedas Gila” but it’s perfect when you pair it with the rice where the “lemak” combines well with the spiciness of the Sambal to give you that addictive kick. We even piled on the Rendang Pedas Hijau Ayam that is one of the special lauk here that adds a bit of tanginess to the overall dish. The Sambal Sotong is an essential lauk as well, no work needed as the sotong is soft that melts in your mouth as soon as you tuck into it.

If you’re looking for a wholesome 'just like your grandma’s Soto Nasi', they might just have the perfect version of it. Filled with all the important elements of a simple and hearty bowl of Soto; you will enjoy every spoonful of the warm and spicy chicken broth served with cubes of nasi impit and topped with shredded chicken, nuts, crispy meehoon and cute cutlets of bergedel. The Soto broth is light compared to others that we've tried and but it’s packed with flavours that will satisfy your soupy food cravings.

Persuaded by the owner herself, we slurped on BR Corner’s Laksa Utara. The kuah- is spicy and packed with flavour, like the other dishes here. The sourness that comes from the asam keping compliments the spiciness that goes hand in hand with the fish based stock. If you’re a Laksa fan then you definitely gotta give this one a try.

If you enjoy all the food we've reviewed here, go try it and let us know what you think.

Ps. We wondered what BR stands for and apparently its a mystery that even the people we talked to at the Warung can't explain. Or maybe you know what it stands for? Let us know in the comment section below, please :D
