On normal days, the walkway in front of Lembaga Tabung Haji building on Jalan Tun Razak might see a few office workers walking about, but on every Friday afternoon, the place transforms into a unique food bazaar thanks to the crowd drawn by the Friday prayers conducted within the mosque of Tabung Haji building.

There are stalls selling burger, kebab, and of course, nasi kandar & nasi briyani. My first experience with the food here started after one of my swimming sessions at G-Tower’s Element Gym on the long Friday lunch break.

This stall is one that is stationed closest to the right side if you’re facing the building, and one that is usually the busiest as well.

There are usually at least some two dozen dishes to choose from, with most of them spicy (just the way I like it!). There’s lamb, beef curry, rendang, brinjal, honey chicken, fried chicken, curry chicken, fried kembung fish, fried egg, hard boiled egg, various types of sambal, bitter gourd, and even bergedil.

The food is very delicious, and best of all, prices are rather reasonable as well.

For example, this packet of nasi briyani with a hard boiled egg, fried chicken drum stick, bitter gourd, and a huge chunk of egg plant with sambal costs RM 9, with a papadem thrown in as well. I particularly love the egg plant, very juicy, spicy, and full of flavor.

I also suspect that if you get there really late, like say around 3pm, sometimes the owner will throw in really great deal as well. This example above includes some beef tripe, fried fish egg, and long beans with nasi briyani, and I was charged less than RM 5.

If your’e up for some delicious no frill nasi briyani on a Friday afternoon, this is definitely a place to check out. They offer “dine in” options as well, though there won’t be any chairs or tables by the stall. You’ll merely just be served with a plate instead of the container.

  1. fish egg and beef tripe! great combo, exactly my kind of lunch! :D

  2. What a line up of dishes! I wouldn’t know where to start.

  3. Good grief!!! No sign of the rice in the end, all buried. I love nasi bryani too! They’ve banned the use of styrofoam here, so they do not use those containers anymore.

  4. KY, wish I could be there to taste these food with special spice in it they used. Do they serve rice or bread with it?

  5. I love rice dishes (nasi kandar, nasi dagang, nasi briyani…) but i can’t each much.. always waste food leh… and scare fat. hahahahaha…

  6. Wah… can you finish that portion by yourself?
