What have you got to lose ?! •

OR available every Friday only - chicken rice; either as an individual set or a whole chicken 🤤 can’t say no to its fragrant rice that goes well •

Not to mention another underrated dish here, fish ball noodle soup; handmade fish balls that are generously huge and fresh kinda bouncy 🙊 •

Watched it grow from a single store to 2 stores now, wonder if it’ll expand and take over Random Food Store’s space since it’s no longer operating #highlyRAEted •

Half Hainanese Chicken RM22.50 • Fish Ball Soup RM 7.90 • Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng RM10.40 •

Malaysians love nasi lemak and it ranges from the basic snack version at RM1 to this at 10 times the price. Some folks consider this the best nasi lemak in the KL area. I found everything good, even the soft hard-boiled egg, with the chilli and the chicken's flavour exceptional. Although the meat was okay, it had such a medley of Malay herbs and spices, that you can enjoy in the form of the accompanying fried bits. It's fun because there are so many things on the plate to go with your already flavourful rice. Village Park might also be the most efficient money-making machine I've eaten at - seats are filled by assignment, everyone orders the same dish, and the payment queue is neverending.

Settle your nasi lemak cravings at this SS2 newbie set in a fully air-conditioned space. Order the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng Serai (RM15.90) and look forward to juicy fried chicken covered in crispy spiced bits along with the usual fixings of fluffy coconut rice, sweet-spicy sambal, crunchy ikan bilis and peanuts. Also try the Nasi Lemak Daging (RM15.90) featuring tender beef that explode with flavour. More mouth-watering sides to share include the Cabbage in Tumeric Coconut Sauce (RM3.90) and the Sambal Sotong (RM7.90).

Love the fluffy white rice (粒粒分明), you can taste each grain of rice that has a light coconut fragrance.
-
Beef rendang was very tender and pulls apart easily. It wasn't too spicy but yet the taste is quite rich.
-
Crispy chicken skin and tender meat within.
-
Please try if you are in the area!

When the gigantic plate landed right in front of me, it reminded me of Village Park’s iconic plate for some reason (perhaps it’s the serai, or the golden fried chicken).
Nevertheless, I dug into the fluffy rice and tender chicken right away. I admit to underestimating Nasi Lemak Lah, so I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious everything was! My favourite being the crispy and juicy fried chicken, of course. The sambal was mildly spicy and on the sweeter side.
The space was slightly compact, but otherwise the service was great. Paired with undeniably good food, Nasi Lemak Lah is off to a good start!

Last meal on this KL trip and ending it with a bang! Village Park Restaurant’s nasi lemak has clinched it as highlight of the trip. I could wax lyrical about all the amazing components (their rice is suuuuuper lemak) but I’ll just touch on the best item on the plate; that fried chicken.

Marinated in an aroma bombz of flavours, it’s deep fried to perfection – crisp on the outside and amazingly moist and tender in the inside. Then they top it off with a copious amount of fried spice bits (think ginger, lemongrass...) that’s oh-so-fine with just rice and sambal. Man oh man, I’d even go so far to claim this as one of the best nasi lemaks I’ve ever had! If you only have time for one stop in KL, pleaseeeee come here.

No trip to KL is completed without a stop at Village Park Restaurant. Well known for their nasi lemak, the place is so popular that the seats covered the walkway outside too.

And it’s easy to spot a plate of Ayam Goreng on every table. Made of fragrant coconuty steamed rice accompanied with fresh hot crispy fried chicken and sambal. The chicken is well season and so crispy delicious that you can’t get enough of it.

P.S: it’s very packed before 1pm and you might have difficulties finding a seat, so best to drop by early morning or late afternoon.

A foodie trip to Malaysia isn't complete until you've eaten its national dish, nasi lemak. Locals eat this dish of coconut milk rice and spicy sambal at any time of the day, and you'll find many versions wherever you go. You'll find the most customary version at Village Park restaurant in Damansara Uptown. Although it buzzes with a crowd from as early as 6.30am, the service is efficient and your patience will be rewarded. Dig into the signature Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (RM10.40) – think fluffy coconut rice, juicy golden fried chicken, sweet-and-spicy sambal, crunchy peanuts and ikan bilis. Make space for other delicious sides like the Sambal Sotong (RM3) which spice lovers will enjoy.
