I have been hearing about this place for quite some time now… saying that it’s a must-try place for nasi lemak ayam goreng, and comparable to those of Village Park. Though I had doubts that any nasi lemak ayam goreng can ever beat Village Park, I headed to their branch at Jaya 33 with my sister on a bright and sunny Saturday morning (and also because I had a buy 1 free 1 voucher from Grab).
Parking was easy enough to find (paid parking though). The outlet was rather empty on a Saturday morning. There were no long queues, perhaps due to the fact that they have several outlets around Klang Valley / KL, and this outlet is located where there isn’t much footfall on weekends.
I ordered their nasi lemak ayam goreng (RM13.90), and my sister had the same (for free!) and limau ais (RM3.60).
Served on a banana leaf, the rice was fragrant enough, the peanuts and ikan billis were crunchy, and the chicken was well-marinated. But I didn’t like their sambal and I felt that the chicken was over-fried and oilier than Village Park’s (Village Park’s sambal wins hands down!). Their fried chicken skin was much harder too!
Overall, though it’s still a decent plate of nasi lemak ayam goreng, I probably will never visit any of their outlets again, since it’s not as good and pricier than Village Park.
