I have eaten quite a number of fried rice before, from the north, like the Nasi Goreng Pattaya to the east coast like Nasi Goreng Kampung and some with a dash of western influence like the Nasi Goreng USA, but when I was told that there’s this stall that’s near my office that serve Coke Fried Rice, I of course thought that it was a joke.
I’ve passed by this stall a few times on my way to Masjid Jamed LRT station but I never give it much of a thought because I thought that the bottle of Coke/Pepsi is surely some soya sauce/thai fish sauce. So last week, not having any home cooked lunch, I decided to venture here to give it a try, because a friend actually says that this place is always packed during lunch time and you might wait an hour to wait for your plate of fried rice.
The owner of the stall is busy frying the rice while the Malay lady is busy on her bluetooth taking orders. I sat down and was asked what I want. So I told the lady that I want a plate of Fried Rice, pedas (spicy) with Ayam (chicken).
I was told that the standard order contains prawns, but since I can’t take any of that, I have requested the lady to omit that from my order and replace it with chicken. The fried rice is very aromatic and quite different but despite having the name of Coke Fried Rice, there’s not much coke taste on it. Not too sure how would Coke plays a part in the recipe, maybe it makes the fried rice more appealing?
Remember I told you earlier that the place is almost always crowded? True enough by the time I finished my plate of rice, a queue is building up and most of the places are taken up, so I’m pretty sure that the stall is quite well known among those who work around the area.
For RM6 for a plate of fried rice and a cup of Teh Ais, I find that it’s quite reasonable. Hmm, maybe I should give it a try next week again. Looks like I’m hook!
For those of you working around KL, the stall is located at a small alley connecting Jalan Tun HS Lee and Leboh Ampang. I’m sure you won’t miss it during lunch hour.
