Nasi Lemak & Curry Laksa @ Bakery Joy, Taman Megah, Petaling Jaya


Life tends to deal out some weird cards.

Behind a bad show of hands, a joker seems to pop up to give us a little light and hope at the end of a dark tunnel.

Take for instance, this particular gem of a place.

While I had noticed it for some time, I only discovered that it served fabulous nasi lemak when I ate it at the most unlikely of places i.e. a funeral wake.


It felt a little weird to be stuffing our faces in a wake.

We had politely resisted the alluring nasi lemak packets on the table but some hungry tummies opened a packet that started a string of us falling down to its delectableness.


Unlike the fiery sambals usually shoved in the nasi lemak packets, this one has a home made feel with aromatic coconut rice, half a hard boiled egg and a sprinkling of deep fried ikan bilis and peanuts.

You get a choice of chicken rendang (RM5 per packet) or sambal sotong (RM4.50). I love both as they taste rather like what mum would have whipped up.


If you dine in, the bakery also serves curry laksa (RM8.50), an honest to goodness bowl packed with fishcake, bean sprouts, prawns, sliced omelette, chicken and tofu puffs. While I would have liked cockles, this version is still rather nice. Next time I think I'll try the Hainan noodles or the tomyam bee hoon. There is also toast and breakfast items.

Don't forget to pack back some goodies in the form of tiny tarts for RM1.60 each. I selected an assortment for the office - cheese with blueberry, chicken and apple. The pastry is light as air that has you hankering for more after the tiny bite.

Life is full of surprises, both bad and good... I guess a nice surprise at a wake is God's way of keeping the cosmic balance?

Truly odd that this bit of yumminess came courtesy of a wake but then again, I had some really nice curry puffs at the last wake I attended. Everything in its time, I guess.

I follow your blogs almost daily even though it is torturous if you live in a far-off land with not a hope to be actually eating the stuff.

However, it does inspire me to sometimes go and cook something from scratch- it is going to be Nasi Lemak today I guess!

The other day I read in a newspaper article on 50 best breakfasts in the world: and was disappointed to see a photo of some soupy noodles posted for "typical Malaysian breakfast". I always think of Nasi Lemak or Roti-chennai as The Malaysian breakfast, am I right????
