Usually I avoid Nasi Campur restaurants as somehow the food does not taste fresh but I was blown away by this place located at Sunway Mentari. It's packed to the brim during lunchtime with people queuing up to take food from a buffet side board of approximately fifteen feet long. You start with the large variety of ulams, kerabus and vegetable dishes. Due to the wide length of the table plus the large crowd hanging in front of it, it's really impossible to take pictures but I managed to sneak in two - this one which shows the vegetable selection.
After the vegetables you have the lauks with their curry sauces (a favourite seems to be the siput sedut lemak) and the all time favourite is the beef slices fried in ginger and spring onion. Next is the grilled fish (ikan bakar), fried chicken and fish with a whole array of sauces finishing off the table. My personal favourites were their mango kerabu, a kerabu seafood with lots of chilli padi (Malay for bird eye chilli), their beef and the grilled catfish (ikan keli in Malay) which was done percik style. You select whatever food you wish to eat with your plate of rice and find a place to sit. A person will come to look through the food you took and write the price down on a tiny scrap of paper together with your drink order. Once you're finish, just pay at the counter.
Besides their wide array of Nasi Campur dishes, they also have sup daging boiling in a huge pot at the front of the shop. You can order a bowl to accompany your meal or have it with noodles. They also serve chicken rice which looks good as you can see the rotisserie of chickens turning from the kitchen.
You also get a good selection of desserts and teatime snacks in the front area which is also buffet style. Help yourself to creme caramel, doughnuts, cucur udang to complete your meal or to eat for teatime.
Something I love which I don't get often, their pengat pisang (sweet banana in milk and sago pearls). There's a small selection of pengats too and the popular one seems to be the pengat jagung (corn).
If you're within the area, try this place as the food is really good. The only problem with this restaurant is they are only open during the weekdays. Business is so good that they can take off during the weekends.
