Nasi Lemak has survive throughout the years as Malaysia's No.1 Breakfast, so it is no wonder that many try to find some uniqueness when serving it up. Here at Appu Uncle Curry House, instead of coming up with a different interpretation like Nasi Lemak Apam or Nasi Lemak Ice-cream, they decided to bring fortune into their Nasi Lemak. Like the famous Chinese fortune cookies, Appu's Nasi Lemak comes with 'fortune notes' that is filled with cheeky quotes which they call- Nasib Lemak. Pure genius!

"If it's called Nasib Lemak, does it mean that whatever I get is based on luck?" If you thought the same, worry not - you will get a warm and aromatic Nasi Lemak, wrapped in banana leaf and then wrapped in brown paper with a logo of Appu Uncle Curry House stamped on the side. Inside each packet resides that 'fortune note' you come here for and trust me, it will be a joy to unfold both the fortune note and the pack of Nasi Lemak.

They have two types of Nasi Lemak here; a standard Nasi Lemak with Sambal Ikan Bilis and a special Nasi Lemak with Sambal Sotong. I am happy to note that the Nasi Lemak is fragrant and mildly rich in coconut milk. The Sambal Ikan Bilis is briny and spicy, mixing well with the crumbly Nasi Lemak. The Sambal Sotong is just perfect - not too chewy, not too spicy with a little hint of sweetness in the sambal and simply sedap! Both of course comes with a side of the usual hard-boiled egg, cucumber and crunchy fried anchovies and ground nuts. It is pretty much your classic, pack full of flavours Nasi Lemak, that comes with a side of quirky fortune note to put a smile on your mundane morning.

Ps. You will also go for seconds, just for the fortune notes! Here's one that we got; "When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane." Haha #LOL!

Appu Uncle Curry House starts their Breakfast from 7am till 11.45am and Lunch starts at 11.30am till 4pm. They serve a good Banana Leaf Rice for lunch and if you come in a group of 4, you can try their Prosperity Set for just RM88! This awesome-foursome set comes with Appu's Signature "Fierce Like Wife Fish Head Curry", 4 Banana Leaf Rice set, Fried Bitter Gourd, large Mutton, large Chicken, free flow of their tangy Rassam and 4 drinks. Now that's a steal if you asked me!
