If there is one nasi lemak place which is visited by so many celebrities, VIPs and politicians, then it should be Village Park in Uptown Damansara. You can see pictures like ex-PM Tun Dr. Mahathir and current prime minister Dato’ Sri Haji Mohammad Najib bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak and his family, Lee Chong Wei and many others parading on the wall of the restaurant.
The nasi lemak is a simple and flavourful food. Some say a good nasi lemak depends on the sambal chilli sauce and I will disagree on that. I am never a sambal lover even though I adore nasi lemak. In my opinion, it is the whole package. A delicious nasi lemak should have rice with thick coconut scent, crunchy fried anchovies and peanuts, freshly cut cucumbers, beautiful egg, not too spicy sambal sauce and put on top of the banana leaf. You get many textures in this plate of rice, the softness of the rice to the crunchy texture of the anchovies. The deep fried chicken with crunchy outer layer and tender meat is the extra and you will love it.
