What do you do when hunger pangs strike on a rainy day? For us, cold and drizzly nights as such call for warm and cozy meals such as steamboat, bakuteh and nasi lemak! Last month, our rainy day cravings were especially bad and fortunately for us, a dear friend recommended Jalan Sentul’s nasi lemak and thus we decided to give it a try.
He forewarned us about the long queue as soon as the stall starts selling at 6 pm, rain or shine. It was true enough that we were greeted by long queue, with patrons holding umbrellas under the rain! It sounded ridiculous but we have decided to join in the queue. Curious ma!
The small stall serves more than 10 varieties of dishes – dry curry pork ribs, luncheon meat, rendang chicken, kangkung, prawn, sambal belacan squid, ikan bilis with petai and so on.
The dry curry pork ribs and sambal belacan squids is a must for a pork and curry lover like KampungBoy. As for Citygal, a simple rendang chicken with luncheong meat and kangkung is more than enough to satisfy her small appetite. The rice was aromatic but it will taste better with more santan. We love all the dishes especially the chicken rendang and curry pork ribs. The meat was really flavourful, as it has absorbed all of the flavours and spices. However, while we loved the spicy kick, it appeared to be a little too much for certain people.
The total damage for two packs of Nasi Lemak with is always RM8.00 – RM 10.00 for the two of us. Sometimes we chose two dishes and sometimes three. Pricing is really reasonable for the portion given. Do not miss this if you happen to be around Jalan Sentul!
