Sungai Way, situated across from Heineken factory divided by Federal Highway, is a pretty old part of Petaling Jaya. The main road at Sungai Way has a few rows of shop houses near the morning wet market and police station, with a few kopitiam open for business, which make for a perfect spot for weekday breakfasts.

Arguably, the busiest stalls at the center of Sungai Way has got to be the nasi lemak stall at Wing Lee kopitiam, situated just before the wet market if you’re coming from Federal Highway. The little stall operated by a few Chinese ladies always sell out their goods by around 8ish in the morning.

So I decided to take a stab at what they have to offer.

Chinese nasi lemak at Sungai Way, the kopitiam next to wet market. They usually sold out before 9am. #kyeats #breakfast #kopitiam #nasilemak #sungaiway

Other than the standard hard boiled egg, deep fried anchovies, peanuts, fresh cucumber, and sambal on coconut milk rice, there are also a couple add-ons you can ask for to spice up the dish, namely cuttlefish, potato, and curry chicken.

While I find that this version of nasi lemak isn’t the most fragrant when it comes to the amount of santan in the rice, the coconut & curry chicken were on point, and I also particularly like their the texture of their cuttlefish.

Overall it is not hard to see why they sell out so early in the morning. Prices are reasonable, and the nasi lemak is certainly above average. Will tapao for work again!

  1. Aiyor…sell out by 9 am…that’s too early! Haven’t wake up yet…kikiki! 😀

  2. Sure does not look like the regular nasi lemak platter, more like chap fan.

  3. KY, a good nasi lemak make a dish. I not sure the different between regular and Chinese one? But your seem rather good .

  4. Potato curry for me.

  5. for chinese nasi lemak i still prefer paramount sunday market …excellent.

  6. I prefer potatoes in curry chicken more that the main star, the chicken so I always scoop more potatoes and less chicken 😛

  7. I think your map is wrong as it is pointing to Heng Lee instead of Wing Lee.

    • KP: you’re right, I was reusing the map from previous post. It’s actually opposite the red dot 😀

  8. I did try the Nasi Lemak once…with Sotong and potatoes. It was good but I was starving so I may have had better ones elsewhere.
