Cheng Leong of xes.cx, avid wall climber, the original Melbourne shuffler, and lawyer extraordinaire only goes to several places for food. Village Park, Pappa Rich, Yut Kee, restaurant O&S, and maybe Cristang.

So when we met up for breakfast a couple weeks ago, it was over one of these handful of restaurants.

This wasn’t my first time to Village Park, but to be honest it isn’t exactly one of my favorite places due to the fact that it is always packed on the weekends, and parking is a bit of a nightmare at Uptown.

They do, however, serves very good nasi lemak and really awesome roti bakar (toast bread).

glorious nasi lemak with everything!
nasi lemak – chicken drumstick, cuttle fish, sambal, peanuts and anchovies

The claim of fame for this place is their nasi lemak. A full set of this signature Malaysian original comes with beef, cuttle fish, chicken rendang, sambal prawns, and all the other typical nasi lemak ingredients such as sambal, fresh cucumber, anchovies, peanuts, hard boiled egg, and of course, fragrant rice cooked with coconut milk.

The ful set costs RM 15, but if you don’t include all the main ingredients, they do come a bit cheaper. While a tad on the pricier side, it is really one of the best high end nasi lemak you can get.

The other absolute must-try dish from Village Park is their roti bakar (RM 2). The difference between their toast bread and those you get from other places is simple – the bread here is sliced twice as thin as typically done. Extra crunchy, and of couse twice the amount of kaya and butter over amount of bread.

I’ve tried their Soto Ayam (RM 5.70) and it turned out to be pretty decent. The restaurant also serves prawn mee, ipoh hor fun, curry mee, asam laksa, and other local dishes. Try those at your own risk, I’ve not heard very good things about them though.

Other notable nasi lemak include the one with minced pork at 6-10, the triangle nasi lemak at 223, the seapark nasi lemak with awesome fried chicken, and nasi lemak tangling.

    This place is packed like crazy. But the food (especially nasi lemak) is very good. Only setback is you can’t sit for long just to enjoy a cuppa and chit chat.

    haha…I love the nasi lemak there and it’s super near my house, but don’t like eating at the store simply because it’s super crowded.

    I actually love going there to ‘tapao’ the food – get the rice piping hot, add more gravy…and when I open it at home, the rice is still steaming and moist – then I get to enjoy it in front of the TV…hehehe…

    their horfun and curry mee are quite decent, although like you said the nasi lemak is still the ultimate dish. 😀

    wow! will try it soon… yummy.

    bro have you tried the SS2 Murni Nasi lemak? that place is also bloody pack during dinner time. Tried that and make a review.

    IMHO, the nasi lemak in Murni also taste good as well.

      I don’t like Murni. The place is a bit too dirty and a bit overrated in my opinion.

    I just went today! Their Milo Dinosaur is good too as well as their piping hot fried chicken. It’s only my second time though. I only go when I have meetings which are there.

    Lunch is even worse during weekdays, both times I went, it was packed.

    Yes! I love the nasi lemak of this place!!! A bit pricey but I always go for the fried chicken instead of the rendang. Hmm.. Maybe I should try the rendang next time, but the fried chicken is always oh so tempting.
