Nasi Lemak Tanglin @ Jalan Cendarasari, Kuala Lumpur


Join the crowd at Tanglin Food Court just next to the Kuala Lumpur Community Clinic for some fantastic Nasi Lemak. No matter what time I go, there's always a queue of people in front of the stall. Don't worry as the queue moves quite fast once everyone gets their food. The Tanglin Food Court is bustling with people from the clinic and the nearby police departments. Even car companies place their cars and salemen in front of the food court hoping to hook some sales from the crowd.



The times when I indulge in a plate of Nasi Lemak here, my must order is their Sambal Sotong. Totally unlike any of the other stalls, their sotong is not rubbery. It also tears easily when you seperate it using a fork and spoon. Another great thing to have is their Sambal Limpa (Beef Liver) which is also tender but has a slight bite to it.


If you wish for a more substantial meal, go for the Chicken Rendang which is tender and full of flavours. For me, I'm happy as long as you give me lots of their sambal which is unique here with a slight nutty taste accompanied with their fragrant steamed coconut rice. Unlike other stalls, it's not so spicy that you can actually taste the sambal.

If you do drop by here, do come early to get the full spread of food. Parking is also quite easy as they provide parking at the side of the food court. For something more substantial, visit Pak Din's Ikan Bakar stall next door for grilled fish over charcoals.

Why you torture me with the sambal sotong photo? I love sambal sotong but cannot find in Singapore...The sambal here is too sweet..you can taste the chilly and the sugar only..Not like in Malaysia where the taste is well blended with spices, onion and chilly....
OK..going to Tampines Mall now and buy nasi lemak...That is the only stall that sell nasi lemak with sambal that taste better than the rest.."No fish, prawn also can"..

Hello Boo! My mouth is watering and my stomach is growling. The nasi lemak looks faaabulous. I'm checking out Prime in the next couple of weeks. Its a lot cheaper than London at rm85! It would cost you almost double! I'm so glad to be home. I can eat like a king again, yay!

How's the pricing of the nasi lemak like, let's say a plate of simple nasi lemak with the usual ikan bilis and hard-boiled egg?

Can anyone enlighten me on this?
