When it comes to finding great Nasi Lemak, not a lot of us would think that an unassuming rundown hidden warung in an old neighbourhood of Jalan J, Taman Melawati would be the "die die must try" go to place for it. But it's these kinds of places that have the good stuff, like Nasi Lemak Ajis Jalan J.

As the years went by it got better and better! Especially with the addition of roti jala and roti canai, to answer the call of the customer’s demand for more breakfast fare. Memang baiklah macamni because it means more food to choose from!

I decided to have my Nasi Lemak with both of their signature lauk, that is the crunchy and moist Ayam Goreng Kunyit and super succulent Ayam Masak Merah.

Best part about this place is that the nasi lemak and all the lauk compliment each other really well. The rice has a balanced taste of "lemak" from the coconut and ginger which cuts the through the taste of the Ayam Goreng Kunyit and Ayam Masak Merah to not make it "jelak". It just makes you want to have a couple more extra AYAM!!!
