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).

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.

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?

After saw Bangsar-Babe posting on this nasi lemak stall, it had been a tempting sensation till I have been visiting this stall for twice a week for the past 2 weeks. Bumbung Nasi Lemak Seapark at Maybank is indeed one of a supper place to hunt for when it comes to best nasi lemak in PJ. It is addictive at times were last time I used to come 3-4 times a week here.

*they used to operate at the road side and this is their new home, where they have clean and brighten it up.

As it is getting late the crowd is getting more and with free music from the opposite shop. Nice place to hang out in a mamak. Not so dangerous also as less car pass by unless you sit in one of the corner whereby the car U-turn, chances of getting hit 20%.

Bumbung Nasi Lemak (2)

Bumbung Nasi Lemak Seapark signature stack that goes out very fast to diners. It is like a fast food of nasi lemak.

This is the mamak war-zone where they prepare all the nasi lemak, fried chicken and indo mee.

As I every time dine here, I never failed to order this Nasi Lemak Ayam. The best thing in this nasi lemak is the sambal(forgot to take) too busy eating. The chicken is also their signature especially you aim for those chicken that is just freshly fried up.(Must not miss it) It is crispy on the outside and soft in the inside of the chicken eat well along with the sambal which I find it not so spicy but a bit sweet that blend it so well together but of course me and my friend were mentioning that if it were a bit spicy, sure taste much better. With the portion quite okay, comes to a price of RM7.50 only.

This is my second item that I never miss, starting off with  nasi lemak then ends with Indo Mee plain telur atas hehehe. If you request the person to fried it abit dries it taste much better compare to sometimes it is a bit wet. I find that they know how to cook the indo mee here compare to alot of places out there. Of course with this comes with a drink of their Limau Ais which is just giving me a satisfying meal. Of course, it cost only RM2.50

Nasi Lemak is one of a staple food for Malaysians. It can be eaten anytime any where. Another of my favorite joint in Kepong is this place – Big Tree Head Mamak which next to the location of Famous Sunday Pasar Malam. Good news is that I do not need to drive all the way to PJ for my favourite nasi lemak.

Big Tree Head Mamak (1)

It is hard for you to miss them as, all the trees are lighted up and you can see a sea of red tables.

Big Tree Head Mamak (3)

One of their well known item is Rojak, but I find it not bad as I had better peanut gravy before but at this supper hour, they are consider decent enough.

Big Tree Head Mamak (4)

Because of demand, most of their chicken are freshly fried.

Big Tree Head Mamak (6)

My usual would be their Nasi Lemak + Mata Kerbau + fried drumstick @ RM 8.50

Big Tree Head Mamak (9)

Rice is mild fragrant, where it is just nice for night palate, and their chicken is perfecttly cook where skin is crispy, meat is well marinated with some spices taste in it. Best of all is their sambal – slightly sweet and spicy end. Their sambal here is like a luxury item. Any additional add on, they always give you a very small plate that I ended up asked a 3-4 rounds. Constantly got the cockstare! Trick to go around is to ask for different macha.

This is my new discovery as, there is this fried radish or known as carrot cake food truck which sits just a few steps away from their stall and right at the traffic light corner. The way he fried and the colour of it looks decent.

For a Rm 4.50 plate of fried carrot cake, this is certainly emerge one of the best in my list to try for. Filled with woke hei, and each piece of the fried carrot cake is fried evenly that have a little cripsy edge on it. Dip with his homecook chili is a bomb. This stall certainly mark as one of a recommended place! Best of all, its just next to the nasi lemak.

Its a great place to dine for where I can enjoy two items at one place.

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.

nasi lemak 222 (1)

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

nasi lemak 222 (9)

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.

New folder4

Both stalls have their own customer base and let me break down for you.

  1. Red Stall packet – their sambal is slightly sweeter, and rice is less fragrant
  2. 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.

This place is totally new to me as Nicole told me she is gonna bring me to her favourite nasi lemak stall in Uptown I was like, “huh, there got famous Nasi Lemak one meh?” she said yes! just meet her there and I could not even remember there was one located along the stretch of HSBC. Have not met her in ages as she is busy travelling around and its a great to see her again. Village Park Nasi Lemak is one of a famous nasi lemak that gain huge popularity.

village park (1)

It is a place surely to  impress and I was here at lunch time. Its chaotic in Uptown as to find a parking spot at this time is your worst Nightmare!!! The only choices is to double park and being risk of either being kena Saman or Tow away. Be sure that you are there to monitor your car. I have seen a group of people came out from a restaurant and looking for their car as I saw their car got tow away.

village park (2)

Its amazing to see how this shop got huge coverage on media and not only that. As behind the payment counter you can see some celebrity and even our PM, ex PM Tun Dr Mahatir and many others came here to dine before.

village park (3)

Well, parking is not only the thing you have to be concern at as inside the shop is also chaotic, as the queue on this rice counter had build to outside and customers are pouring in.

village park (4)

Look at the Ayam goreng is just so tempting.

village park (5)

and my friend told me this is one of a must have!

village park (6)

Prices are slightly a bit more expensive for a plate of nasi lemak cuz you are dining in a restaurant.

village park (7)

This is how full house it would be and many other people behind me are waiting too.

village park (8)

This is a portion that according to my friend their signature ‘Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng’ @ RM 8. Something simple yet delightful, as rice is fragrant with light santan taste, fried chicken is nice and I would love to have mine with the extra crispy left over from the fried wok. Sambal is not bad as I prefer it to be more spicy and I was told that it used to be spicy and due to general taste bud, they have tone it down.

village park (9)

Kangkung Belacan order extra for side dish.

If you start comparing, I would compare it in this way, as Village Park Nasi Lemak they are cheaper than any malls restaurant that have to offer and taste much better or one of the best so far. If you compare with the makcik pakcik little stall on the road side, cant be comparable as those are street food category and of course their price is much cheaper and you can find a few stalls that taste better than them.

As this place is not that far from my place, I find that the price and quality is pretty decent. Been returning for couple of times already. 🙂
