Chow Kit Pasar is one of the oldest market in KL. Also mark of many stalls that had been operating in the area for many decades. This particular stall known as Taste Legendary Nasi Lemak Chow Kit Pasar that had been operting for more than 35 years in this location. Following Ah Xian food Channel as he mention about this place, we decided to drop by and follow along.
It was a location that is hard to find till a few people saw we are lost and asked are we looking for the Nasi LEmak Stall, which is actually located in the building next to this small police station.
Famous for their Braised pork belly with black fungus cooked in five-spice powder and the other dishes with their curry gravy is superb. The only thing is that you need to wake up early to hit for this place as they start selling from 6am – 10am (or till finish).
They sell many bucket of rice a day.
As the seller cup the rice and putting it onto the take away bag, you can listen to the sound of rice drops that shows how good is the rice cook.
Dishes here are very much straight forward as they have their ingredient of the day . If you reach there late, there are some dishes that you could not get anymore as the cook with limited quantity. If not, you will be ask to come back again.
Sambal here is a must as it is quite different from others.
Sotong seems to be one of the crowds favorite here.
Only take away are available as we order their famous 5 spices braised pork belly and drench with sambal and egg. It is pretty amazing that bursting in flavours.
Next we did order mutton and turns out to be good too. Soft and juicy.
Overall, if you ask me, is there anything which is fantastic about this? YES, there is as I love the taste of the curry mild herbs flavour. As the ingredient is pretty normal but the curries is something to shout about.
Just that, are you able to wake up this early for a pack of Chinese Nasi Lemak?
