Nasi Lemak Tanglin has been around for ages. If you're craving for a nasi lemak from these people, you can queue up for one somewhere along Jalan Cenderasari (lake Gardens, Off Jalan Tanglin) with everybody else(Open Mornings only, Closed Sundays). If you're unlucky, the queue is very long, if you're lucky, the queue is just long. If there's no queue, then they are probably closed or the food's all gone!
There are two good items at this place. The nasi lemak and the kopitiam tea. Let's put the kopitiam tea aside first and try some nasi lemak tanglin style. Tanglin sells the usual fried chicken, chicken rendang, sambal sotong and beef lung dendeng among others. From all the myriad of lauks available, my heart fell for their beef liver sambal and sambal sotong. Their sambal sotong has ground peanuts in them giving it a slightly nutty taste but with a slight chili kick. Complimenting their sambal is the beef liver. The sweet sambal has somehow found its way deep into the cuts which makes it that more enjoyable eating.

Did we forget about the kopitiam styled tea? We certainly didn't! You will find walking around the tables, a small polite old man carrying a tray full of drinks, most of them are white tea served in an old kopitiam teacup. Oh... this tea is so smooooth, it just glides through the tastebuds, teasing it a little before easing it's way down. Not much aftertaste, this may be the best ninety cent tea I've ever had. The nice 'tea server' man told us that he was lucky to get a supply of tea from a good year. Although he has a good supply of them , he doesn't know how long it will last. We ordered another two cups each .. just in case he overestimated his supply of good tea. With that done, we're back on the highway joining the 'happy people' braving the morning KL traffic jams....
