1. The nasi lemak at SS19/6 PARK WAY restaurant. is kind of - OK -

2. A stall open by a malay near USJ 1/1B ( further down of MYDIN and GIANT)
their rice is alot and sambal is very HOTTY SPICEY.
worth eating ! - FINE -

3. THE SS19 nasi lemak stall run by a chinese man.
(which is another corner of down the row of PARY WAY restuarant)
His nasi lemak is nice, tastey but sambal not very good.
overall - NICE -

4. SS2 , indian mamak, RM 1.20 or RM 1.50 ( i forgoten the price, is in a very small packet leaf form, though cool but the NASI LEMAK is tastey - OK -



The lousy NASI LEMAK.
1. i ate at CHATTERS. They serve me cool nasi (rice ) of the NASI LEMAK.
the sambal is really sucks , not very tastey. - BAD -
Dont waste your money there, eventhough the environment does looks simply nice and common design to for chit chat and sitting down.
At SS17 ( in the row of AYAM NOR )

WHO ELSE KNOWS what is NICE AND NOT NICE, what is Excellent and FINE?? :cool:

There was this strong recommendation from another thread bout the fantastic nasi lemak from the red van outside 7-11 in Taipan. I tried it. Found it a big disappointment.... Rice not fagrant, fried chicken was burnt, sambal not spicy, condiments like peanuts, cucumber & boiled egg was NOT included. Mebbe, cos I sent my mum to ta-pau, they bully her, see her aunty aunty dunno how to speak bahasa fluently....

There used to be a stall in Court One, by the roadside, a nice makcik.Her nasi lemak was the greatest... fragrant rice, good rendang & lovely sambal kerang (without the fishy smell nor too sourish as they tend to be). However, this was more than a year ago, she stopped for 'maternity leave' then disappeared. Anyone spots her, pls, pls, lemme know!

Oh I have more bad one to tell.... The makcik who sells opposite Taipan, near Telekom building used to be very friendly & generous with portions when she first started... Now, she has prospered to a very big stall, complete with van & 3 umbrellas - attiude turned stuck up. Only smiles with the regulars.

Best one? I think the malay family who runs a stall from home at Kampung Baru KL..donno if they're still operating and sorry, I don't know how to get there exactly cos I don't drive to KL..

Recently tried the Penang Village nasi lemak. The branch in Mont Kiara/Sri Hartamas? Could be a little costly about 9 bucks I think.. Like the chicken rendang and sambal. And the acar. Go try.

and yes, one more good one. Beside Wawasan school is USJ 18/19 right? Where you could see lotsa fruit stalls opposite the petrol station? There's a malay couple there selling nasi lemak ayam panggang (something like that) in a small stall..tried it once and so much better than the one outside 7-11 Taipan. I think they're the best so far, in USJ, for good and cheap.

So far the best one I've tried is Madam Kwan's nasi lemak, or the one in sakura cafe.
That one really yummy... and it's the first time I've tried a nasi lemak which cost more than RM10
The nasi lemak of Cable Car in Sunway Pyramid also quite nice
2 shop lots next to Cable car is Lemon grass, their nasi lemak also no bad, but come in a small potion... for me not even half tank

Oh, yes! Sakura cafe nasi lemak is tops! Almost forgotten all about them already, must visit soon. :D

Madam Kwan's is so-so but overated and kinda expensive, and ferget about Uncle Lim's nasi lemak too, no consistent quality, I won't visit these kinds of trendy joints for food unless it's for some gathering with friends as the food is just so-so.

Small stalls are too many to name and they come and go, sometimes u can't find them when u crave for it. I just go to a few of decent ones I know that are nearby.

There is an outlet in SS2 (near the ex-Chow Yeang / behind Nasi Kandar Kayu). From LDP, after turning into SS2, first right turn and you should see the restaurant after 100 metres. The outlet claimed to be related to Nasi Lemak Cikgu, together with some newspaper cuttings. The Nasi Lemak is available for both breakfast and dinner. A word of warning - I have never tasted the original in SS3, so, not sure whether this outlet is imposter or not. :)

Its possibly more than a decade since I savored NL Cikgu when they started to get famous with mostly non-Malays making a beeline there at SS3.
As time went by, from my once a while visits, I'd noticed the place started to look run-down and a somewhat filthy cooking area that made me puke. Since then, I stopped going there, not bothered about it till todate, NOT entirely due to the reason I've stated.

The plain nasi lemak is nothing really special, outstanding or an edge over others but its obvious to me its the hot fried chicken thats the crowd puller and almost everyone would go for a piece or half on their plate. Was there Sotong too?..I think there was..either was delicious too!.

I'd rate good NL by its quality of coconut rice and sambal, add hard boiled egg,(lazy vendors will have friend egg instead!) plain cucumber and a sprinkle of crispy anchovies, only then I can call it Nasi Lemak. Every other variety of dishes are just additional to enhance and further appetize patrons. Not surprisingly, that's the modern way of selling NL commonly found. So one can ask oneself, is it the plain NL that's good or is it the other delicious dishes that attracts one more.

hmm... anyone tried the nasi lemak at USJ 4, opposite 7-11, next to the burger stall? well, it's considerably nice, except that the sambal's not spicy enough. its also considerably hygiene, as the fried chicken r freshly fried (not like those that has been fried n left for god knows how long n with flies wandering around). what can i say? "tasty is in the mouth of the beholder"!

p.s. SS14 mamak bistro's nasi lemak is not that bad too, but look carefully at its fried chicken before you order or eat...

I totally agree. If the rice taste good even on its own... add with good sambal.... that's good NL to me too. The rest are just compliments to the dish. Same concept applies to me for chicken rice, it's all in the rice. ;)

Mon the nasi lemak cikgu was really fantastic. Last time went there the other stall operator told me they have shifted to somewhere nearby. She couldn't give me the exact location so gave up after searching for a while.

Hope u will find it n let us know its latest location.

BTW the nasi lemak shop opposite summit at usj2 is pretty decent.

Hey Stanley, thanks. Haven't tried the USJ2 nasi lemak tho. Will let you know about the cikgu later. Goodnight.

If I'd see that, I'll surely tell them off, cancel the order and walk out!..for the sake they buck up from unhealthy methods. :rolleyes:
At least I witness the mamak shop near my home, use gloves when processing my plate of rojak.

Rice - so, so, not fragrant enough
Sambal - average (run of the mill)
Toppings - Egg, Fried chicken, sotong (dried cuttlefish type) and spare parts
Price - cheap, cheap Rm2.50 including sotong (plenty) - this is their selling point.

As written on an earlier thread on nasi lemak, this stall might not be the best but it is value for money for the portions. A similar dish in Mentari will damage you RM5.50!!

The only delectable fragrant rice available near my ideal at one stall I know has disappeared..where it was located at USJ7 / food court behind Metro Bus depo. That couple even used to sell Nasi Dagang at one time but on enquiry, had to give up due to inconsistent supply of beras dagang..oh how I miss a round of that high cholestrol pack!.

Mamak shop NL, hmmmm... somehow none of those in & around USJ/Subang I've tasted would have me smiling. Its always lacking in somewhere..either the rice or sambal.. :(
