Best Nasi Lemak in Shah Alam

Written by Updated ago

Ask anyone who has visited Malaysia and they would undeniably have tried our Nasi Lemak. This Ultimate Malaysian dish is so close to our hearts and as our nation's history and tradition that we are proud to share it with the world. The star of the dish is the "fatty" rice cooked in coconut milk, usually accompanied with dried anchovies, peanuts, cucumber and of course, sambal. An optional protein side is typically of chicken, squid or red meat curry to name a few. However, a memorable Nasi Lemak is what we're looking for when it comes to the best nasi lemak in Shah Alam.

    A subsidiary of Nyonya Kitchen, Pak Li Kopitiam was established ten years ago with a single goal: to serve traditional and authentic local cuisine in a muhibbah ambience. The environment yearns to cater to all Malaysians under one roof. Besides the signature nasi lemak Special that is served with chicken, the kopitiam also serves Singapore's Katong Laksa (which by the way, is difficult to find in Malaysia!) and signature Asam Laksa. Not a fan of local cuisine? No worries as Pak Li Kopitiam has got you covered with some Western options such as Fish & Chips and Chicken Chop. Now we all know that Malaysian food is oily, so wash them down with a cooling bowl of Cendol or ABC after your meals!

Topped with a fried egg, the sambal here is the perfect companion to the fragrant rice. What's better is that the chicken here is delicious and fresh, making it another perfect side to complete your plate of nasi lemak. Besides nasi lemak, the roti canai and satay here have also been acclaimed. Don't be surprised if you witness a stream of incoming customers here. There's a reason for that.

    A popular spot for a Malaysian breakfast, Restoran Ceria's nasi lemak is delicious mainly for the sambal. When it comes to a good ol' plate of nasi lemak, the sambal's role plays half of the entire dish and thus, a good sambal typically accompanies a good plate of nasi lemak. The sambal here is not overly sweet, yet sweet enough to satisfy your tastebud and it really packs a punch with its hotness. Spicily rich and fragrant, many love the nasi lemak here as even the proteins such as sambal sotong are usually cooked well.

    EAT Cafe, unlike most of the other restaurants in this list, is a more 'comfortable' place to enjoy your nasi lemak, as it is a cafe afterall. The cafe serves a variety of cuisine such as Malaysian, Western and Japanese. While the choices are tempting, dory fish with salmon roe mayo, teriyaki beef and lamb chop, we only want to focus on their nasi lemak this time. It's a delicious plate of wholesome goodness and served in a generous portion.
