One of a famous nasi lemak bungkus place to many of us. It had been a long time since I last step into this area and since I am nearby the area, we have decided to pay a visit. Me and my friend have name this place Nasi Lemak Panas Panas or Nasi Lemak 222 that have been well known for one of our gathering place since college.
Little did I know that I have yet to blog about this place and since Nasi Lemak is now well known for a healthy food by Times Magazine, I guess I should add that in too now.
This place is constantly pack with people and as it hit late night, there will be even more people flocking into this place. Before you sit down, you will be attack by a group of sales people from the individual stall for drinks business. As you sat down then the server will start putting in their respective food stall onto your talbe and feel free to pick what you like.
In this food court, most of the people are here for nasi lemak and there are 2 provider.
The usual servings will be 2 different type of nasi lemak from Blue stall and Red Stall, follow by 3 different stall of Otak Otak – from Pink, Black and yellow. Other waiter will drop by your table asking you to order other items such as mutton/chicken soup, laksa, mee goreng and others.
Lets start off with the Red Chop as when you are seated, there are nasi lemak bungkus with red chop. If you head to their main stall, you might see some people queuing for take away and it is also famous for their fried chicken.
Their fried chicken is pretty good as fried with their own marination and ‘rempah’ to go along also the chicken is not too dry. I do not usually take chicken breast however this chicken breast is still moist and juicy. I add on with three scoop of their sambal @ RM 3
Next, lets head to another stall which I call them Blue stall. If you head to their main stall, you will be greeted with variety of malay economy rice where you can choose to add on their crispy fried chicken or other dishes.
I call this Penang Laksa Malay version @ RM 4.50 as the soup base is very different compare to Asam Laksa. Nearly similar ingredients as Asam laksa, where their soup is pretty thick with fish meat base is good too. Just that the soup is not pippin hot.
Both stalls have their own customer base and let me break down for you.
- Red Stall packet – their sambal is slightly sweeter, and rice is less fragrant
- Blue Stall packet – their sambal is more spicy and rice is slightly fragrant with with coconut. (my personal favourite)
This will depends your individual taste as you can try both pack at one go as both the pack are quite small. If I remember correctly, I used to have it from RM0.80 then to RM1, then to RM 1.20 and now I believe is RM 1.50 per pack.
