When I first heard about 6 to 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak, I thought they are open from 6am to 10pm. One Sunday I went the restaurant at 11am and didn’t see any customers around. Then I shat bricks. Little did I know, their business hour is actually 12pm to 2.30pm, then continued from 6pm to 10.30pm.
Being located within a rather quiet housing area, there was no where else I could go lepak while waiting for them to be ready. I couldn’t even find newspaper to read lol.
Luckily I was told that their nasi lemak was going to be available in half an hour’s time so I simply waited. It was their famous nasi lemak that I was anticipating anyway. If you don’t know, 6 to 10 Grill’s nasi lemak is well known for their rendang dishes especially pork rendang. The minced pork sambal was quite well received too. Besides, I think it is quite rare to see pork rendang and sambal made using pork, right?
Well it seemed like a bad day for me, as they were not preparing any pork rendang that day. But mutton rendang was the recommended alternative. I had no choice but to take it.
Anyway with minced pork sambal thrown in as well, this serving of nasi lemak actually cost me RM10.50. FYI that’s the defined price. Nasi lemak + 1 dish = RM7, additional 2 dishes for RM10.50 and 3 dishes for RM14. Not exactly cheap but lets see if it’s worth it.
If you like your nasi lemak with extra ingredients then you gotta give Village Park @ Damansara Uptown a try. Besides plain nasi lemak, they offer various dishes as additional add-ons like ayam goreng rempah, sambal udang, sambal petai and even rendang.
Village Park is very popular and often comes in top for nasi lemak, especially after they had been named as the best nasi lemak by FriedChillies. I don’t know about FriedChillies’ credibility, but it certainly helps in many ways. For me, I came based on the many suggestions I got from friends.
I anticipated Village Park would be very crowded because of their popularity, but didn’t quite expect the crowd to be so huge lol. On an early Sunday morning, the queue for the nasi lemak alone was shockingly long, and there were no seats too despite having tables set up over a span of three shops including the parking space in front.
Mention Nasi Lemak and Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa @ Kampung Baru is surely one of the places to come into mind. It’s quite possibly one of the most recognized nasi lemak establishment in KL too. Their business so successful they have ventured into franchising now, with branches available at Bangsar, TTDI and Kota Damansara as well.
Despite the many bad comments especially about the quality of food served and service at Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa, I still wanted to give it a try for its legendary status. After trying, I have satisfied my curiosity and concluded that their nasi lemak is not quite as legendary anymore. Don’t get me wrong though, I am not saying it’s bad. Perhaps it was much better back in the days. Click here to continue reading >
On Labor Day we took a LRT ride to Dang Wangi station looking for Yut Kee, an old coffee shop famous for their Hainanese food. We went pretty early thinking that there would be a huge crowd having breakfast due to the public holiday.
Unfortunately our assumption was totally wrong, as Yut Kee was closed. I guess they too need a rest lol. Disappointed and didn’t know where to go, we decided to take walk to KLCC and explore the new area (to us) while doing so.
Then, we stumbled on a large crowd queuing up at a road side stall just behind Dang Wangi LRT station. The curiosity got the better of us so we decided to check it out – it was a nasi lemak stall, called RA Nasi Lemak.
The nasi lemak’s fragrant coconut milk smell from the wooden barrel was so strong it was detectable before we even reached the stall.
At that time the name RA Nasi Lemak seemed vaguely familiar to me, like I seen it before somewhere. I only realized it was the famous Jalan Raja Abdullah‘s Nasi Lemak after some research upon returning home. Click here to continue reading >
