Being a restaurant with many years of experience, Restoran New Hup Lek is where locals love to go for the typical Malaysian food. The restaurant has been opened for more than 20 years, and yet the business is still going on strong.
The popular dishes include their Char Kuey Teow, Nasi Lemak, and Curry Noodles. The Char Kuey Teow is served with cockles, prawns, beansprouts and chives and also pieces of chicken meat. However, the Char Kuey Teow is usually unavailable in the morning and the Nasi Lemak is usually sold out when it is close to noon so you have to choose the right time to be able to enjoy the food of your choice.
The Curry Noodles is another must-try in New Hup Lek. The curry soup is concentrated, and spicy enough for you to break a sweat! They also add in sambal for you to mix in your soup if you think it's not spicy enough, which makes the soup redder and even tastier!
Like any other nasi lemak, New Hup Lek's Nasi Lemak is served with sambal, anchovies, peanuts, cucumber and egg. The sambal is sweet and spicy, and the anchovies are always crispy. However, the regulars usually order the Nasi Lemak with curry chicken and curry wild boar. This is because their curry is very thick and creamy, which is a plus for many of the locals. What makes it stand out compared to others is the fact that it is served with salted fish, which enhances the flavor of the rice and the meat. If you are a fan of salted fish, this is definitely a place to try out.
