Best Ever Nasi Lemak Spots In Malaysia

Nasi lemak or the "fatty rice" is the most commonly found food in Malaysia. Good nasi lemak must carry the fragrant from banana leaf which blends very well with the soft and fluffy, coconut milk-infused rice. Coupled with the fiery hot and oily sambal...hmmm, it's the most sinful food for any weight watcher out there.  
There are many good nasi lemak spot in Klang Valley, below are the few good ones which I have tried.

R.A. Nasi Lemak  
15 Jalan Raja Abdullah, Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 012-244 4911. Open: 6am to 11am (Monday to Sunday), 4pm to 12am (Monday to Friday).)
The rice is steamed in the traditional wooden barrel, making each grain fluffy and separate. You can choose have your
basic package with the thick sambal and usual condiments of peanuts, ikan bilis, hard boiled egg  or add extras from a selection of accompanying dishes, including its famously crunchy "kerisik"(fried coconut). 

Village Park Restaurant

5 Jalan SS21/37, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya. Tel: 03-7710 7860. Open: 7am to 8pm.
Village Park’s nasi lemak is extra special with fluffy rice grains and a rich coconut taste, thanks to the special way they steam the rice over coconut milk and pandan leaves within a traditional wooden tub. Basic nasi lemak costs RM2+ but if you’re feeling indulgent, try their chicken rendang, fried chicken and sambal udang which are hot-sellers. The shop sometime closed as early as 4pm when they finished selling their nasi lemak.

Nasi Lemak Outside Central Market 

Central Market (Monday to Friday).Morning only
The nasi lemak is sold on a white coloured van. Only for take-away. Standard set with slices of cucumber, fried ikan bilis(anchovies) and fried egg costs at RM2.20 per packet. The serving is huge when compared to other nasi lemak bungkus. 

There are some other favorite nasi lemak spot s which are popular among KL city folks, eg Nasi Lemak Tangling at Lake Garden, Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa at Kg Bahru. Anyway, i found them so-so only. Perhaps these few outlets have other better side dishes. As for me, I normally love it plain. 

There are also many outside Klang Valley. While I haven't been revisiting these places for years, I have better paused here till I pay a visit to these spot for their nasi lemak again...
