What is KL without their late night supper places? Studio 5 opens in the afternoon but it gets jumping when the sun goes down. All manner of fried menu, chicken rice, satay, big glass juices- all can be found within this gerai area. But for me... when the craving hits, this is my go-to place for late night nasi lemak...
Cute nasi lemak bungkus for supper...
5, 6 & 7, Gerai Statik Jalan Kolam Air Lama, Ampang, Selangor
There's all sorts of other food you can have here too and opens late
It's hot and a bit tight on space during dinner-time
Everyone has a late night nasi lemak joint that never lets them down. Whether it's the 24-hour nasi lemak bungkus at 223 or a midnight fried chicken at Bumbung, there's always a nasi lemak within easy reach in KL. Well mine is at Studio 5. In fact, I can walk here from my which is a fact I often try to ignore lying in bed at night.
They have it in ready packets in a steamer so it's nice and warm. I like it like this because the rice has time to get aromatic from the banana leaf. However if you're eating here they can serve it up for you on a plate too. To me it's just a good sized nasi lemak bungkus, nicely fragrant rice, a thick red sambal and boiled egg.
You can add on timun or more ikan bilis and nuts from the counter. I usually have mine with the sambal sotong which hits the spot if you're hungry but they also have rendang, sambal kerang (pretty good too) and paru. The paru on a good day is nice and bouncy.
It opens pretty late and the same place also has legit goreng-goreng, nasi ayam and even steamed fish. Within the same gerai area there's also the famous Zaini Satay and of course Naan's Corner is just next door. I prefer this no frills gerai though even if you do leave the place smelling like satay and fried rice. It's an institution, as far as I know everyone in Ampang grew up going here plus the food is good and filling.
