Kak Laily Nasi Ayam Original

Hard to find really good Halal 'kai fan' but Kak Laily's kids and proteges is still doing it right

by The Foodster Photography FriedChillies Fri, January 19, 2007

It's hard to find halal nasi ayam hawkers that has been serving 'kai fan' for a long time, and it is even harder to find one that is Halal. This one is. Laily's customers are old timers and even kids whom has grown up eating her chicken rice. Nasi Ayam Laily is located at the SS15 Subang Jaya Food Court called the Square. A typical chicken rice here will consist of a plate of roasted chicken, a bowl of chicken broth, a plate of rice with cucumber slices and of course, garlic chili paste for that extra kick. No steamed version but just as good.

They don't make chicken rice like Kak Laily's anywhere else. The rice is delicious and flavourful. You can taste the chicken stock in the rice, not too overpoweringl, just right. The tender chicken is glazed slightly with honey and roasted crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside. We suspect that the chicken is semi-boiled, semi-roasted and then fried in a huge wok to give it the nice distinctive Laily flavour. On top of the chicken, light soya sauce is poured. You can even ask for some fried liver and gizzards to go with the chicken.

And what else? Chicken feet with the broth. Yup, they have them all. So pour some chili paste on your plate, put in some chicken slices, scoop up some soya sauce to the rice, cut in some sliced cucumbers, mix it all up and in you go... delicious. Order up some kopi ais with that!

Normally the chicken rice comes with soup on the side.. so ta dahhhhh....perhaps the stock comes from the soup & bones

Chicken rice is to cook from chicken stock. If a stall sells mostly roast chicken, wonder where does the stock come from?

I just had lunch there after checking out the review here. There was quite a lot of people there waiting for their food and it did take sometime before the food was actually served to us. I had the drumstick piece, it was ok I thought, nothing really to shout about, of coz this is my opinion. I felt the texture was pretty good but the taste was not up to my expectation. I was also looking forward to the chicken feet but they oni had the chicken rice only nothing more nothing less. Price was reasonable, for 2 people with drinks oni cost RM 9.00.

Al Fatihah to Kak Laily.

I've first known Kak Laily when we first moved in Subang Jaya back in the 80's when she had a small gerai in SS13. She's not only famous for her nasi ayam but also her apam. That was a long time ago.

I guess I wont be able to taste her nasi ayam again now since I'm not in Malaysia anymore.

Grew up with her Nasi Ayam. Her's is the originals. The rest that are selling around the area are all copycats or have learned the recipe from her.

by inaimerah February 03, 2007 9:13AM

chicken rice same ler , but if you're expert in makan chicken rice, the sauce do someof the magical spell, oh yeah...I recommended nasi ayam TELEKOM, located at Menara Telekom Bangsar cafeteria. Very easy to find the stall, just go to the security guard and ask for the guide through to the "power" nasi ayam stall, they will show you the way..hehe..

The owner is a malay and from what I know , they learned the Nasi Ayam ingredients from their Chinese friends long time ago.

by sukral January 27, 2007 5:29AM

Ha ha! only the sauce ah? How about the chicken rice raspberry

by The Foodster January 26, 2007 12:35AM

sorry my mistake..not 'source' but 'sauce'

by sukral January 25, 2007 11:03AM

You should try Nasi Ayam stall beside Kak Lailli - Lina Nasi Ayam, the source was more kick!
