    Nasi Lemak Esso only opens for breakfast and brunch. The sambal here is on the sweeter side. Most patrons accompany their nasi lemak with a piece of fried chicken but other protein options are available too. Amongst locals, the restaurant is well known and thus, operations are usually busy throughout its opening hours. Typically sold out, the restaurant is usually closed by 11AM. So if you want yourself some Nasi Lemak Esso, you are gonna have to get there early!

    Nasi Lemak EjamPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Unlike many other nasi lemak shops and stalls, Ejam's Nasi Lemak only operates when the sun sets. A humble stall, the family transports all their freshly made nasi lemaks in a vehicle every evening. The stall operates till later at night but don't be surprised if it unexpectedly closes before usual, as they do sell out. While the location is rather random, queues are common here. Many reckon that the nasi lemak is the best for its price and taste. Review wise, many just 'can not explain it', claiming the nasi lemak is 'just amazing'. We love it when food makes people speechless and that's pretty much what happens here!

    Tips

    Don't visit when starving... Your stomach will turn ghastly upon smelling that delicious nasi lemak!

    Things to expect

    100% Kukus (Steamed).
