Memories : 1998 ( nasi lemak at mad jiwa )

Ok.go :

Nasi lemak is not in my favor list. Why ? because I hate anchovies..
I prefer roti canai more if I have to choose what to eat at stall for breakfast.

But it reminds me of something, back at my school days at boarding school, we were dying to get nasi lemak after night preparation class. Even though it wasn't taste that good, but still, I had to grab at least one , if not, I felt like, the day was not completed. Plus, we didn't had that much of choices.. I bet you guys would prefer nasi lemak more than a cup of tea and biscuits served at dining hall.

Today, nasi lemak has been improved . Just go to any stall, you will see different kind of dishes served with nasi lemak. Whether rendang ayam, sambal sotong, spicy fried chicken etc.. I bet its a mouth watering for you guys. But not for me.

People always said, you should go to Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa or Nasi Lemak Kukus Ampang, but for me it's sucks.

But still, if you guys want to taste the best of it .. then go to these places

C.T. Garden Nasi Lemak (aka Nasi Lemak Stadium Sulaiman)
Jalan Dewan Sultan Sulaiman, Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur. Open 6pm to 5am.
Serving up one of the best and cheapest nasi lemak bungkus in town (RM0.60), C.T. Garden is packed from dinner time ‘til the wee hours. Each packet wrapped in banana leaf and newspaper consists of rice, a dollop of sambal full of ikan bilis and hardboiled egg portion. Though the rice is slightly wet, the sambal packs a punch. One packet is never enough so don’t be surprised to see customers scarfing a few packets in one go.

R.A. Nasi Lemak
15 Jalan Raja Abdullah, Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 012-244 4911. Open: 6am to 11am (Monday to Sunday), 4pm to 12am (Monday to Friday).
Popular among inner city workers, the nasi lemak here is served buffet style. R.A.’s rice is steamed in the traditional wooden barrel, making each grain fluffy and separate. You can choose have your nasi lemak with the thick sambal and usual condiments of peanuts, ikan bilis, hard boiled egg (RM1.50) or add extras from a selection of accompanying dishes, including its famously crunchy deep fried paru (cow’s lungs).

Village Park Restaurant
5 Jalan SS21/37, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya. Tel: 03-7710 7860. Open: 7am to 8pm.
Never failing to attract fans of nasi lemak and nasi dagang, Village Park’s nasi lemak is extra special with fluffy rice grains and a rich coconut taste, thanks to the special way they steam the rice over coconut milk and pandan leaves within a traditional wooden tub. Basic nasi lemak costs RM2 but if you’re feeling indulgent, try their Nasi Lemak Set (RM11) which is served with beef, squid, chicken rendang and sambal udang.

Kak Ton D’Condo Enterprise
110 Jalan 1/38B, Taman Segambut SPPK, (Opposite Prima Duta condominum), Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 012-3377820. Open: 6.30am to 3pm.
Trading from the back of a house, this small stall attracts customers from its surrounding high rise condos. The sambal here is spicy with chili seeds and chopped onions which meld with the rice when stirred (RM1 for the basic). Besides a selection of sambal sotong and various rendangs, they also serve the unusual quail eggs sambal. The fried chicken is also extremely popular and is snapped up straightaway by its patrons when it emerges fresh from the wok.

Nasi Lemak stall (in front of Restoran Kopitiam Mr Pau)
54 Jalan Desa Bakti, Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur. Open: 7am to 12pm (Closed on Monday and alternate Tuesdays).
Run by a Chinese lady from Tampin, this stall is one of the few places in town which serves wild boar rendang (RM3). Unlike other places, her version of nasi lemak is served with pickled cucumbers, pineapples and onions instead of sliced cucumbers. Although the rice is not as fluffy or fragrant compared to the Malay version, the sambal is thick with lots of crunchy onions and ikan bilis (RM1.50 for the basic). Also available are her popular Nyonya kuih

But I will not !
