However, the vibe of this space is to communicate togetherness and united-ness. Their most popular dish is the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (RM 13.90) which the standout is surely the fried chicken. My only gripe was that the sambal was a bit too watery, otherwise, everything on this plate was good.

Join the growing line at this roadside stall for amazing nasi lemak. Everything is self-service here, so wait in line for your packet of rice and take your pick from the variety of sambal (sambal ikan bilis and sambal tempeh), protein and vegetable dishes. Fill your plate with the stellar Ayam Goreng (RM4) that's fried to golden perfection. Petai lovers, you won't want to miss the Udang Petai (RM3), which goes superbly well with the fluffy rice. In addition to the usual fried and boiled egg, the folks here offer Quail Eggs (three pieces, RM3.50). Pro tip: The queue starts forming at 8am and the food sells out by noon. Come early!

Malaysians NEED their Nasi Lemak fix every now and then or rumour has it that we might wilt and die.
I almost felt sorry that this stall isn’t as popular as Village Park because truthfully the Malaysian dish is just as good here.
Fluffy and warm rice that comes with a burst of flavour with every bite, deliciously spicy sambal, and fragrant fried chicken (and I like that it’s not soaked in oil).
There was a bit of a crowd at 8am and I now know why. Everything is self service (including drinks as you will need to collect your order on your own at the counter).
Although a little more expensive than the usual roadside Nasi Lemak, I cant complain much since their food is amazeballs.

Hungry at midnight and nowhere to go? Nasi lemak ayam goreng is the answer for a good wholesome meal. Rice portion is kinda small but then again, how much can you eat for supper anyway? Sambal is just right, not too spicy and not too sweet.

You can never go wrong with a good plate of Nasi Lemak from Village Park. Everything done just right! Fluffy fragrant rice, peanuts and Ikan bilis adds to the crunch factor of the dish, fried chicken undoubtedly juicy and aromatic. It’s no wonder people were willing to get out of bed at the crack of dawn on a public holiday just to get their hands on a plate!
Come early to avoid the breakfast crowd.

No stranger to locals and tourists alike, Village Park is your go-to when it comes to a ‘confirm good’ nasi lemak experience. Order their signature Nasi Lemak with crumby and gingery Ayam Goreng (RM11). The wait is long on weekends, so come early before lunch hour to get a good seat in the air-conditioned area.

Open till 4am, streetside Bumbung makes a popular spot in PJ for night owls, students and the after-work crowd. The Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken (RM6) topped with a perfect fried egg never ceases to satisfy those late night cravings that have been driving you up the 'bumbung'. Expect speedy service that will bring your nasi lemak from counter to table in no time.

This nondescript nasi lemak stall in Kepong’s Wai Sek Kai sees locals fall in line for mouth-watering Nasi Lemak (from RM2.50) with fluffy, perfectly cooked coconut rice, and the punch-packed sambal. Pair that with the Sambal Sotong (from RM1.50) and the flavourful Rendang Daging or Curry Chicken (from RM1). The friendly uncle who runs the humble stall is generous when it comes to piling on extra rice and sambal, which you should always yes say to.

When in ICC Pudu, follow the crowd to Ann's Nasi Lemak. They're queuing for the popular Curry Pork Skin Rice (RM6) that sees generous amounts of chewy pork skin on coconut rice, sweet onion sambal and more. The curry is not at all spicy, but rather, rich, sweet and creamy. They also have Curry Pork Rice (RM7.50), Shrimp and Minced Pork Fried Petai Rice (RM8) and Fried Drumstick Rice (RM9) to boot. Come early on weekends as they tend to sell out by noon.

Spot this brightly lit stall under a tree along Persiaran Mergastua that does mamak-style nasi lemak justice. A simple plate of Nasi Lemak (from RM3) here is good, but even better when paired with the juicy and crispy Fried Chicken (from RM8.50). Aromatic rice, sweet-spicy sambal and excellent fried chicken – what more could you ask for? P.s. It gets crowded during supper time, so be prepared to share tables!

Tucked along a quiet street amidst old flats in Pudu is this Chinese-style nasi lemak served zhap fan style. Once the fluorescent lights up, get in line to build your plate. Each side dish is priced from RM3, and we highly recommend getting the Siham Sambal, Chicken Curry and Fried Spam. The usual ikan bilis, peanuts and cucumber trimmings are served as add-ons (from RM1 each).
