Being a true blue Malaysian, I love my nasi lemak. When my futsal buddy decided that we should head down to Kampung Baru from PJ after our game at 11pm on a weekday, I didn’t think it was a bad idea at all. I will happily trade a little bit of sleep for a good session of nasi lemak anytime.

There are several famous nasi lemak places around the area. The nasi lemak RA few hundred meters away, and nasi lemak antarabangsa that is even closer (I’ve yet to try) to this nasi lemak CT Garden situated right at Kampung Baru.

plenty off add-ons to go with your nasi lemak

The actual nasi lemak packets are rather small and pretty basic. A quarter of an egg, a small cup of rice, and plenty of very tasty sambal. The difference at this place is the availability of the huge variety of lauk (side dishes). Chicken cooked in half a dozen methods, fish, eggs, vegetable, squid, cuttle fish, cockles, beef, lamb, liver, lung, and more.

we didn’t leave anything behind

We had 2-3 packets of nasi lemak (RM 1) per person to go with some ayam madu (honey chicken), cockles, potato, and cuttle fish. Chicken and cockles were pretty good, but the cuttle fish was the one that caught my attention. The texture was just right, a little bit like biting down well cooked cartilage and went very well with the sambal. Personally I am not a huge fan of spicy soggy potato chips, but the other two dudes seemed to love it though.

The nasi lemak with lauk and drinks costs us about RM 6-8 per person. I guess nasi lemak isn’t exactly the cheapest meal these days, but it was worth it at this place though.

Nasi lemak CT Garden opens from 6pm to around 5am, parking is not too difficult. The place is also pretty clean and comfortable. Now I’ll have to try antarabangsa and see what the fuss is all about.

  12. boon,
    Interesting, I shall keep that in mind. 😀

  13. been there.. very good selection of lauks – though was there when i already had my dindin.

    Yes yes, I agree. Parking at late night wasn’t too bad though 🙂

  15. my last experience at CT garden was lots of cockroaches running over your feet and stuff. I agree CT gardens NL taste quite nice, I’d prefer NL Antarabangsa because u don see those roaches running around…

  16. Bernsy,
    They’ve renovated the whole place since then though! 😀

  17. the Nasi Leman is only 60 cents if i am not mistaken, not RM1

    the nasi lemak is cheap … the lauk is expensive …

    we had 6 pack os nasi lemak, so that like less than RM4

    but the lauk, 2 portions rendang + 2 portions sotong + 2 ayam goreng + few skewers of paru …RM25++

  18. earl-ku,

  22. The nasi lemak now is RM0.70.

    There is already a comment of your inaccurate reporting on the price. Are you able to edit it?

    Your pricing only encourages other nasi lemak seller to sell at much higher price at RM1.20 to RM2.50
