Malaysian Food Blog, Travel, Diving & More

On a lazy weekend morning a few weeks ago, I was looking for a lunch buddy and happened to see Lorna coming online over MSN.

    • “Lunch?”


    • “Why not?”


    “Let me bring you to this Malay chicken rice place”

I said okay with a mixture of apprehension and curiosity, then proceed to get ready and wait for the lady to pick me up. (sexual equality, right? :P)

note: sadly this place is closed.

As it turned out, the nasi ayam bakar special (special roasted chicken rice) place is located pretty close to where I stay, at SS5 just next to the big Kelana Jaya Giant. The Malay food court area was not as busy in the afternoon as it is at night, there were only a few tables occupied.

drum stick, rice, soup, satisfying

We ordered two sets of nasi ayam bakar with drum sticks, and another extra drum stick for good measure. To properly Malaysianised the meal, we had iced syrup to drink.

The bbq chicken was rather unique, I could only describe it as a cross between roasted chicken and the chicken tandoori with the sauce that is somewhat similar to paprik style, slightly sweet and a little spicy. The rice was cooked together with other chicken parts (such as neck) and I presume, fats; thus carry a very fragrant smell that goes very well with the meat. It was very unique and certainly delicious. We finished devoured everything to the bones.

If I remember correctly, the chicken rice was less than RM 5 per portion and only available during lunch. The same place also have a big sign board that says “steamboat”, I wonder how Malay steamboat tastes like, maybe another time.

  12. KY, When are you going to do reviews on the eateries at Dataran Sunway, Kota D’sara? There’s so many to choose, like to read your reviews first. Thanks.

  13. It looks good, unusual (roasted style chicken with gravy) but unique.

    Hey, KY, have you had the Nasi Ayam Special Palembang at Wisma Genting (the food court) at Jalan Sultan Ismail? It’s the best nasi ayam I’ve ever eaten.

    I don’t know if it’s still around but it’s REALLY popular during lunchtime. Last time I had it was 2003 when I was working in KL.
