Datanglah Rumah Ku jikalau bang lapar! Makanan sedap, enak, lagi berkhaksyat.. or something…

Anyway.. I shall not attempt to compose this entry in Malay, the ability to write a proper essay has already gone out of the window since after SPM. These days my ability in our national language is reduced to having small talks with colleague, and ordering food.

note: I’ve been notified that this restaurant has changed ownership, menu is different from this blog now.

Rumah Ku at Kelana Jaya
Rumah Ku, air bandung, ulam (and the sambal!)

I first got to know about this little Malay restaurant at Kelana Jaya from a sales person (who also happened to read this blog) that my company had dealing with. The first impression was very good, and I’ve meant to go back there again for a while but didn’t manage until just a few days ago.

nasi timbel ayam & nasi timbel tenggiri
Nasi Timbel with Ayam Goreng, and with Ikan Tenggiri

Other than your usual nasi goreng, danging merah, ayam paprid, sotong kunyit and so forth, this place serves the very unique (to me anyway) nasi timbel.

Nasi Timbel is an Indonesian thingy with steamed rice wrapped in banan leaf, serves with ulam (raw vegetable with sambal), keropok melinjo, spicy anchovies, beef gulai, and also ayam goreng. Alternatively you can have it with ikan tenggiri (Spanish Mackerel), kembung (Indian Mackerel), or tilapia.

I tried the tenggiri version and the fried chicken version (both at RM 12 while the other 2 versions slightly cheaper) and they tasted rather quite awesome! The beef in gulai was tender and flavorful, and I also particularly like their sambal that packs a serious kick.

The fried chicken was one of the best I had too, with the texture still very firm and I can only inappropriately described it as .. “fresh”. Give this place a try, the restaurant is situated by one of the lakes and spot a pretty nice view if you’re sitting al fresco.

Not all things are perfect here though, if you go there in the afternoon, make sure to park in the covered car park to avoid getting clamped. The food also usually takes quite a while to be served, but I guess this was due to the fact that everything was prepared from scratch

  7. slurp. must try! ❗ ❗ ❗ ❗

  9. New management taken over. Different menu.

    • KH Hong: ah, thanks for the tips.

    • Shucks! I was just going to give it a try 🙁 I had awesome nasi timbel in Jakarta and would like to eat it again. Sad…

      • Piq: perhaps you can try again, maybe still has it? never try never knowwww

        • Taken over by new management and serving totally different food. All they serve now is very forgetable, very common, very lousy food. Don’t need to go there anymore, coz its a waste of time and money.
