Nasi Lemak – Village Park

Last Sunday I met up with a few CS-ers for the famed Village Park Nasi Lemak.
It’s been in my “to eat” journal for nearly a year, and I jumped at the opportunity when one of the members of suggested a Sunday lunch here.

After a gruelling RPM challenge session and BodyPump, I rewarded myself with this.. ;p
The fried chicken is one of their main sellers… really finger-licking good stuff and kicks KFC’s Colonel Sanders ass anytime 😉
Fragrant, moist, tender flesh and well permeated marination to the bone… fu-yohh!!!

The outlet was packed both inside and outside.

Customers spilling out of the outlet, braving the heat for their nasi lemak fix…

Other than the normal condiments, there were loads of add-ons available of course.. this is a business after all…& naturally, be prepared to fork out the $$$.
Yes, nexxxtt….. “what else do you want??”
For the nasi lemak it is some sort like self service; just head over to the counter to order your meal.
Note: They do bring it over to your table but with the queue, it’s just faster to grab your plate and go.

My order above was RM6.80.
My friend Nina‘s bill, with the added sambal udang was RM10.80.
The prawns were disappointing, very clearly leftovers that was reheated and served. We both agree dry and shrunked prawns are not our kind of thing!

Jian added the petai. It was nice and fragrant, doused in piquant and sour gravy. RM11.80 I think.
Service for food is fast (maybe its cos you queue, order, take your food and go) since the same can’t be vouched for their drinks department. We ordered out drinks and it took around 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive.

Personally, I would have preferred a spicier version of the sambal, but had no grouse with the fluffy, fragrant rice other than it’s a rather small portion. I hate burnt/black/shriveled peanuts and here, the peanuts were fresh, perfectly fried to the right level of doneness and not overly oily.
Other food like kuey teow soup, roti bakar/toast, half boiled eggs and assam laksa is available too
but you’ll notice that the Nasi Lemak is clearly the signature dish on every table.

Next for me is the Nasi Lemak Cikgu, which I plan to visit after my Bukit Gasing hike on Sunday. I can’t wait!
note: .. this didnt happen this mornin ;(
we got lost (yup, in Bkt Gasing!) and by the time we got out; 3 hours later ( we were so famished that we hit the nearest joint which is Raju’s )

    No no no. You gotta go get the Ayam Penyet at the Curve. I think the place is called Ria. The chicken is cooked so tender the meat just falls off the bone. I know it sounds disgusting but it tastes like you won’t believe it. And thanks for the link. I’ll link ya back. Plus, the restaurant i work for will be planning a huge event for KL Food BLoggers somewhere in September. Will keep you posted about that.

    Their NL is highly rated by many and quite close to the authentic Malay ones in Kg Baru, tho still a shade below Tg Puteri Sri Hartamas(nights only) and RA, Jln Raja Abdullah(mornings to evening) which is the Mecca of NL(KL)

    try Cinta Ria in DJ for their NL ayam rendang version which is also superb, and comparable to Village Park

  12. worldwindows

    I’ve been surfing on-line much more than three hours as of late, nonetheless I don’t ever discovered any appealing posting like your site. It’s pretty price ample for me. For my part, if most of web site house owners and people produced great content material materials as you do, the web will probably be much much more useful than ever before.
