For the past 6 or 7 weeks, me, May and the boys went back to Kepong normally during the weekends to have a look at May’s parent’s house as they were away in New Zealand, have always wanted to try this Chinese Nasi Lemak that KY mentioned in his blog post before but every time that we were there on a Sunday morning, the place is normally closed. However, 3 weeks back, we managed to drop by the place on a Saturday morning to give it a try.
The restaurant is a corner shop off Jalan Segambut (Jalan Segambut Selatan to be exact) and the easiest landmark would be the RHB Bank diagonally opposite the shop. It houses quite a selection of stalls, from the Nasi Lemak to Jawa Mee.
The stall is manned by a Chinese couple, and the selection of dishes is spread around the stall. Being a Nasi Lemak lover, sometimes I like how we Chinese cooked the Sambal and Curry Chicken, there’s almost this distinctive taste that separates from the Malay ones. Of course, there’s also the varieties that can be included like pork and wild boar meat.
The rice is just nice, with a very fragrant santan that’s not too heavy. The sambal is like what I’ve expected, with lots of onion, sweet but spicy. The Fried Pork is alright, marinated with five spice but I find it a bit watery, maybe because my family version always comes with thick gravy.
Nevertheless, it’s always nice to have a good old Nasi Lemak, Chinese style. If you can’t make it in the morning, consider Nasi Lemak San Peng that operates around the San Peng area at night.
