I have always found Village Park to be bustling with customers, often times crowded near the entrance because of great word of mouth about their very delicious malay dishes.
Giving in to our kiasuness and curiosity, we dropped by on a Sunday morning. It is much easier to get a place during the weekends.
Teh Ice (RM 1.70)
Nasi Lemak Ayam (RM 6). It comes with the usual condiments like sambal, fried ikan bilis, chicken, cucumber slices and egg but it tastes unusually delicious. The rice is aggregated loosely together, instead of wet and clumpy. The restaurant owner steams the rice in a wooden container, a traditional method that most Malay mama still adopt. I asked for extra serving of sambal because the fiery red and thick sauce that has been cooked for 8 hours has the right kick of spiciness.
The chicken is something not to be missed at Village Park. It is well marinated overnight in a secret concoction of spices and matches the crispy outside and tender inside criteria perfectly. Trays after trays of these goodies are finishing off in a short while. I have to say that size does matter, the huge slab of chicken is truly satisfying.
A lot of positive feedbacks are given to their lauk pauk, nasi dagang and noodles too. We will definitely come back to give it a try, will be having a hard time to resist ourselves from ordering the nasi lemak again. The lunch for two costs only RM 15 (5% government tax included), definitely great food that is easy on the pocket.
