Our routine for the weekends is pretty much standard. I cook lunch and dinner is anywhere and anything (Old Town White Coffee, Pak Li Kopitiam, Pak Hailam Kopitiam, Seri Melur, Spicy Crab Portuguese & Restaurant Padi Prada). Can be at high end restaurants as once in a while treat. Usually at coffee shops. We have been regularly eating in Restoran Poh Yap (opposite McDonalds Kota Kemuning) and only recently I noticed the nasi lemak stall right at the back. As I walked up to order, I found out that there's been publicity in the newspaper about the stall. All the more I was keen to try their nasi lemak.
For the coconut rice, I asked for asam chicken, kerang/cockle sambal, chilli dried prawn flakes, sambal belacan, fried egg and the rest were the standard condiments.
I ordered and joined my other half who won't eat anything except his favourite fried kuey teow which he claims is simply the best among the rest. I too have eaten a few times. Since I am not a fan of fried kuey teow or fried mee, I have no comments neither I would dispute about the taste. Anyway, I was eagerly waiting for the nasi lemak which came within 5 minutes, priced at RM7.50.
I sampled a bit of everything first instead mixing all up with the rice. Sambal belacan was the clear winner. I know better. Its a must when available anywhere I eat. Even at home too (sambal belacan). The taste was right - not too spicy, not too salty and not too sour. Yum is the word to describe. The other which stood out was the chilli dried prawn flakes. Equally good. In fact good enough for the rice without the other dishes. As for the asam chicken, its a pass though I still prefer asam dish with fish. Similarly, pass for the plain sambal. The kerang sambal was not my favourite but can't be faulted. Of course when everything is mixed and eaten, its truly a satisfying meal.
The stall has been around for a while now and is quite popular too. If you come over after 12pm, perhaps there will be less choices on the dishes as well no more Bihun Siam and Mi Hailam.Like nava-k’s facebook page for other lifestyle reviews.
