Nasi Lemak Wak Kentut KTM

by Honey on Sun, March 05, 2017

This nasi lemak with fried chicken institution was one of the most popular stalls during I Eat Nasi Lemak last year. And for good reason, a solid nasi lemak with a sweet chunky sambal and battered fried chicken that is lip-smacking good! Ah... if only it's not in Kulai...

Try it for fart's sake!

Wak Kentut came on our radar because of the cheeky name and news of excellent ayam goreng. This fried chicken folks, is the battered kind, with a crispy crunchy crust that hides within succulent chicken flesh. The process of making this chicken is not a big secret. Whole chickens are cut into 8 (so the pieces are large), marinated in a batter made from a self-concocted spice and flour mix, then fried in hot oil.

“Dia lembut di dalam, crispy di luar,” smiles Ira, Wak Kentut’s daughter. What makes the chicken consistently good is that everything is mixed fresh on the day it is fried. When hot, it's kinda like KFC but better. It’s her father that developed the recipe. As for the nasi lemak, sambal and other dishes and mee rebus on offer it’s her mum’s recipes. They have been opened since 1989 near the KTM station in Kulai hence the reference to the name.

Now the nasi lemak kukus itself is worthy. It has a sweet, chunky sambal that is riddled with onions. It's quite mild so quite alright for kids. The rice too is nicely fragrant, well balanced to go with the other stuff. All you need is just a piece (or two) of Kentut's fried chicken and a plate nasi to make you happy.

The Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken
Now to the colourful name. Ira says, her father loved to drink teh halia which as we all know is a rather flatulent beverage. “Lepas tu suka kentut kenakan kawan-kawan rapat dengan dia,” she explained rather deadpan. Brilliant! He became known as Wak Kentut and well the rest as they say is history.
