The Nasi Lemak
Bumbung is located in the alley right beside S.E.A Park Maybank The alley is lighted up with fluorescent light and surprisingly there’s no weirdie smell and its very clean.
All Malaysian should know what is Nasi Lemak and this place is famous for it.
The sambal is not spicy and a little sweet in it, suitable for those who don’t like spicy. The egg they prepared is ”Mata Kerbau” sunny side up egg instead of hard boiled egg. Finally, the fried chicken, fried till golden brown, crispy at the outside, juicy in the inside, a lot spices flavor in it. Last but not least, served hot on a plate with a piece of banana leave to enhance the flavor of the rice and a little bit of cucumber slices, peanuts & ikan bilis.

Taman Rakyat is built for the Klangites to exercise in a place close to nature and a place for healthy activities.
This restaurant is situated inside the Taman vicinity.
Prices are very reasonable and the servings are generous. The western food is great and also the Nasi Lemak is a must try item. I had the one with sambal sotong which taste so tender and the sambal was awesome.

The wall in the restaurant is decorated with a huge chalkboard written with Maths formula which reminds me of my sixth form Double Maths. The Old School menu which resemble exercise book used during school days certainly brings back old school memories. In keeping with the “school” theme, waitresses are dressed in school uniforms which looks more like Bangkok school girls.
Since it was my first trip to this place I ordered something familiar which is the Nasi Lemak with 3 types of pork dish – Siu Yuk, Hakka fried and Rendang. All the 3 tasted real good and I have to add another serving of the Sambal which was not sufficient for me. The serving is big so can actually feed 2 normal person.

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.

Famous for their nasi lemak with pork rendang, mutton rendang, chicken rendang and beef rendang. One of the few nasi lemak restaurant that serves pork rendang. The rice which was laced with coconut milk was perfectly cooked. The fragrant was so good. And as for the pork rendang it was so tender and appetizing.
I was there for lunch with a few of my good friends for nasi lemak and we also tried the grill red wine pork ribs which was awesome in many ways. A chef’s recommendation.

Nasi Lemak Mami terletak di Southern Park, Klang. Nasi Lemak yang telah bertapak lebih kurang 30 tahun ini dikatakan popular dikalangan penduduk Taman Selatan dan sekitarnya. Keunikan nasi lemak ini adalah kerana ia dihidang dengan sayur kangkung dan tauhu. Pelanggan juga diberi pilihan lauk seperti ayam goreng panas, daging, kerang, ayam masak merah dan sambal sotong. Sambal dan ayam goreng panas adalah kegemaran saya.
The sambal and fried chicken are super awesome!
