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.

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.

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.

This place is notorious for its insane crowds but rest assured, the wait is worth it. You're here for the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (RM10.50) — the wonderful dish that has won over the community with its perfect combination of fragrant coconut rice, sweet-spicy sambal and the crowning glory, juicy fried chicken with extremely crispy skin. Wash it down with a cup of Fresh Limau Mint (RM4.70), the perfect thirst-quencher to combat that heaty meal.

Nasi lemak ayam goreng (RM10.50)

#villagepark #uptown #uptownfoodie #nasilemak #ayamgoreng #burpplekl #burpple #localfood

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.

There’s something about the rice they use here that it was so fluffy and good. Perhaps it was kukus rice that each grain was thoroughly cooked and fragrant. The Ayam Goreng was Da Bomb. Done right in every way it should be. Sambal chilli was also sensational.
Here and one shouldn’t miss their iced coffee, strong, aromatic and creamy for all the hardcore caffeine lovers.

All time favourite.
Crowded yet efficient.
Air conditioned.
Crispy chicken.
Fragrant rice.
Yum!

Village Park needs no introduction. The name rolls off our tongues when talking about nasi lemak, which makes it a five-star spot to bring a tourist friend or simply anyone who loves the national dish. Lunchtime here sees snaking queues and tight seats but not many know of its quieter morning service that starts at 7am. This is prime time should you want to come in groups. Otherwise, aim for lunch with two to three colleagues, at most. Start your day on a winning note with the Nasi Lemak Ayam (RM10.50) that comes with a sizeable deep-fried chicken leg. It's yummy, crunchy and perfect with coconut-fragrant rice and mildly sweet, addictive sambal. Make space for a side; the dish of Curry Cockles (RM4.50) is a true underdog here. The little morsels of fresh cockles swimming in luscious curry sauce will easily warrant another order of rice — lemak please.
Avg price per person: RM15
