Nasi Lemak @ Killiney Kopitiam, Sooka Sentral

Killiney Kopitiam in Sooka Sentral also has a wider array of food to choose from in its menu compared to other Killiney Kopitiam in Malaysia.

Killiney Kopitiam's Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah
Killiney Kopitiam’s Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah

Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah is one of the them. Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah is quite decent and I must say it is even better than the infamous Nasi Lemak Panas Ayam Goreng in Bangsar. The rice is fragrant and the anchovies are crispy while the sambal is slightly on the sweet side rather than being spicy. The fried chicken is perfectly fried, except that it may be a little bit oily.


  • Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah – RM 8.90

Nasi Lemak Panas Ayam Goreng @ Restoran Fathima, Bangsar Utama

Restoran Fathima’s Nasi Lemak Panas Ayam Goreng was once known as the best nasi lemak in the country due to the fact that it was the one of the first restaurants to introduce nasi lemak with hot fried chicken.

While the nasi lemak here is not exactly the best nasi lemak ever, it is somehow decent enough although slightly more pricey than most mamak restaurants that serve even better nasi lemak. There are certainly better ones as the search continues.


  • Nasi Lemak Panas – RM 2.00
  • Ayam Goreng – RM 3.00
  • Nescafe Tarik – RM 1.30

Breakfast – Devi’s Corner @ Bangsar

Devi’s Corner, once a very popular hangout place in Bangsar Baru has shifted from Jalan Telawi 5 to Jalan Telawi 4 in the year 2008.

Devi's Corner Nasi Lemak
Devi’s Corner Nasi Lemak

Once voted as Malaysia’s best Nasi Lemak, though the quality has gone down tremendously since, the Nasi Lemak at Devi’s Corner now is better than it was a couple of years ago. The rice is fragrant and cooked to perfection with the santan while the sambal is just nice.

Devi's Corner Roti Telur
Devi’s Corner Roti Telur

Roti Telur “garing” is crispy and delicious, although I am not sure whether it’s softer if you don’t tell the waiter you want it “garing”. Most mamak stalls serve soft and fluffy roti canai but I prefer mine crispy.

Devi's Corner Tosai Masala
Devi’s Corner Tosai Masala

Tosai Masala is not the best option of food when it comes to the food at Devi’s Corner. While the roti canai is still fine, the tosai has nothing out of the extraordinary and there is nothing to shout about.

Devi's Corner Nescafe Tarik
Devi’s Corner Nescafe Tarik

Nescafe Tarik is made to perfection, not too sweet nor tasteless.

Overall, Devi’s Corner is your favorite mamak stall for a reason. Although the patrons are lesser nowadays, maybe come 2010 when the World Cup season is here, the thriving days of Devi’s Corner will return.


  • Nasi Lemak + Mata Kerbau – RM 2.50
  • Roti Telur – RM 1.50
  • Tosai Masala – RM 2.50
  • Nescafe Tarik – RM 1.60
  • Black & White Coffee – RM 5.90

Breakfast Set – warongkita @ KL Sentral Station

warongkita, which is located near the Departure Hall of KLIA Express serves Malay-style kopitiam food. It also have affordable breakfast sets.

warongkita's Nasi Lemak Biasa
warongkita’s Nasi Lemak Biasa

Nasi Lemak Biasa is indeed biasa (ordinary) and there’s nothing to shout about. It is just mediocre and perhaps, it is better to order Set B, which consists of Roti Bakar Kaya Kampung and coffee.

warongkita's Kopi (Panas)
warongkita’s Kopi (Panas)

Kopi (Panas) is quite mediocre as compared to Kopi Kampung (Panas) as it lacks taste and everything just doesn’t seem right.

Overall, I would recommend you to order Roti Bakar Kaya Kampung and Kopi Kampung, which in my opinion is not only wholesome but quite delightful as well.


  • Set A (Kopi + Nasi Lemak Biasa) – RM 4.50

Nasi Lemak – La Cucur @ KL Sentral Station

La Cucur Express has been in business for quite some time. They are well-known with their nasi lemak and kuih-muih. Besides its branch in Suria KLCC, La Cucur Express also operates in KL Sentral, which is located just besides 7-Eleven.

La Cucur Express' Nasi Lemak
La Cucur Express’ Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak in La Cucur Express is one of the best around town, especially for packed nasi lemak. The sambal is spicy and it is definitely not for those who can’t take spicy food. The rice is perfect, and sometimes, instead of boiled eggs, the nasi lemak comes with omelet eggs. The only problem is the portion of rice is quite small, maybe it’s not enough for big eaters.

La Cucur Express' Teh Tarik
La Cucur Express’ Teh Tarik

Teh Tarik tastes quite mediocre and is definitely not worth RM 2.00.

Overall, I would not mind paying RM 2.00 for the Nasi Lemak and eat it everyday for 365 days.


  • Nasi Lemak – RM 2.00
  • Teh Tarik – RM 2.00

Nasi Lemak – Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan @ Wisma UOA II

Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan is located inside the food court of Wisma UOA II, Jalan Pinang.

Nasi Lemak from Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan is not the best-ever nasi lemak but it qualifies as the best within the premise of Wisma UOA II. Don’t even bother to try the nasi lemak from other stalls in the food court, or even the nasi lemak from Meals Station.

The Nasi Lemak is however usually sold-out early in the morning.


  • Nasi Lemak – RM 1.80

Nasi Lemak Chicken – Mak Tom’s Nasi Lemak, Food Republic @ Pavilion KL

It was just after Hari Raya Aidilfitri and it was almost impossible to find nasi lemak. But, thanks to Mak Tom’s Nasi Lemak in Food Republic, Pavilion KL, my taste buds for nasi lemak is saved.

Mak Tom's Nasi Lemak Chicken

Mak Tom’s Nasi Lemak Chicken is surprisingly good, especially the sambal which is quite spicy. The rice is strongly scented with santan while the fried chicken is crispy enough.

Mak Tom’s Nasi Lemak Chicken is located in the middle of Food Republic, in Pavilion KL.


  • Nasi Lemak Chicken – RM 7.90

Penang Food – Little Penang Kafe @ The Curve

Little Penang Kafe in The Curve may sound familiar, this is because it has long established itself in Suria KLCC.

Just like the restaurant’s name, little can be said of the Nasi Lemak. Sri Nirwana in Bangsar still serves the best nasi lemak so far.

The Assam Laksa, however, is full of flavor — it’s sour and has a generous amount of fish meat.

Nasi Lemak Otak-otak – Shalala Coffee @ Seremban Rest and Service Area

If you are going South, you are bound to stop by Seremban rest and service area. You will see Shalala Coffee next to a huge Malay food stalls. If you don’t prefer to eat Malay food, you may want to try Shalala Coffee. Although I would not strongly recommend you.

Shalala Coffee's Nasi Lemak Otak-otak
Shalala Coffee’s Nasi Lemak Otak-otak

One good thing about going south is the availability of Otak-otak. And Nasi Lemak Otak-otak is not too bad even though the sambal is not the best-ever sambal for a nasi lemak, the Otak-otak is still alright.

Shalala Coffee's Curry Laksa

The Curry Laksa, though lacks a certain flavor.

The Iced Coffee Milk is definitely not the best coffee from Shalala Coffee. There are more milk than any other thing in this drink.


  • Curry Laksa – RM 6.60
  • Nasi Lemak Otak-Otak – RM 7.40
  • Ice Milk Coffee – RM 3.60

Nasi Lemak & Mee Siam – Kluang Station @ One Utama

Kluang Station is not exactly just another kopitiam as its interior design concept is based on old-school train station despite serving the same food like Uncle Lim, Hometown Kopitiam and the likes.

Kluang Station's Mee Siam
Kluang Station’s Mee Siam

Kluang Station’s Mee Siam does not really taste like Mee Siam. Maybe because it’s not spicy enough or perhaps the chili used is not the right type — or perhaps it’s the sambal which is more towards the sweet side.

Kluang Station's Nasi Lemak

The nasi lemak in Kluang Station is not too bad. The sambal is the same one used in the Mee Siam, which is sweet and not spicy. The anchovies and peanuts are aplenty.

Kluang Station's Kopi Cold

One must try the Kopi Cold which is the traditional kopitiam-style coffee — even for the cold version, one can taste the real coffee in it.

Kluang Station in One Utama is located in the Lower Ground Floor in the New Wing.
