Best Nasi Ayam Goreng Kunyit in KL

Written by Updated ago

Visually arresting, full of fragrance and easily accessible, Nasi Ayam Goreng Kunyit, or literally translated as Turmeric Fried Chicken with Rice has been sharing the spotlight as an inevitable comfort food, especially in the capital of Malaysia. What makes it so compelling? Turmeric. Commonly infused together with other spices, but this time, it bags the job on its own. Slices of chickens are marinated with turmeric and fried to golden goodness with onions, long beans, and chilies, then shrouded over steamed white rice. Sounds simple? Yet it’s utterly satisfying. And it barely makes a dent in your wallet and never fails to ring rhapsody on your palate, so what are your waiting for, join the turmeric bandwagon at renowned spots below.

    Meals on wheels have been booming across Kuala Lumpur, and Mat Rock is among the reigning champions, ensuring locals are no longer bumping into languorous lunch meals with their impeccable Nasi Ayam Goreng Kunyit. The never-ending crowd is the best testament to their success, all in hopes of nabbing a box of turmeric-infused chicken chunks that sits on a bed of steamed white rice. The meat is tender and succulent, while the julienned carrots, onions, and long beans add a layer of colour and crunch. Best enjoyed a fried egg perched atop and spicy sambal by the side. 


    Their squid version is spot-on too
