The chicken was crispy and flavourful and I liked the sambal chilli that went well with the coconut rice too! 😋 This place might be a little out of the way but there are cafes in the area too so that made the trip more worth it ☺️


You’ll be spoilt for choices, large menu covering Malaysian and Western. Can’t be more Malaysian than serving Durian Fried Rice or Teh Tarik Coconut Milk...

More than 3000 reviews on Google Maps and a full house at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon attests to the popularity of Village Park. And while some locals might argue otherwise, I found their signature nasi lemak very good. Though not the most “lemak”, the rice was light, fluffy and fragrant. It is the chicken that is the real star though – fried till crisp, crackly and golden brown, yet somehow managing to retain a moist, juicy interior. Even more addictive was the mound of heavily spiced, crunchy batter scattered atop the considerably large chicken quarter, which we mixed into our rice along with the sweet and spicy sambal for an explosion of textures and flavour in the mouth.


Although it says tuna, it had the least tuna ever. Instead of tuna, it had more chicken cubes. Love the strong tomyam taste.
Just wish they had more tuna in it, as the name indicates.

This was RM8.90.

Nasi lemak is a traditional Malay dish consisting of rice cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaves, served with a side of sambal, peanuts, deep fried anchovies, cucumber and half a boiled egg. Most versions may also include deep fried chicken, beef rendang, sambal squid, cockles or prawns.

Village Park is renown for their nasi lemak, and arguably one of the better ones in Kuala Lumpur. The rice here is fragrant has rich from the coconut broth, with the sambal a little spicy and not overtly sweet. The highlight of the restaurant however, really is its deep fried chicken with extra crunchy bits of flavourful flour adding to every bite. Definitely a must try.

Located at the entrance of kepong wai sek kai, this is one of my favourite barbeque chicken wing.

Juicy, tender and slightly heavier seasoning than the other bbq chicken wing stall. This is so perfect for a supper that pair along with a bowl of tongshui to reduce the heat.

Sunday started right with this awesome Nasi Lemak. Malaysia-style in all goodness with freshly fried marinated chicken thigh that is crispy outside, yet full of juicy flavour within; sambal chilli against coconut-y rice. Yums.

The place is usually crowded, no thanks to its fame over the years. Even the two Malaysia PMs have visited. Had to put this up again, because though stubby fingers deleted the initial one, this is too good not to share. Any other food recommendations in KL for next time? #villagepark #nasilemak #herpenandfork #sgblogger #sgfoodie #8dayseat #burpple #vscofood #openricesg #cafehoppingsg #instafood #instafood_sg #onthetable #stfoodtrending #malaysiafood #kualalumpur.
