PJ: Village Park Restaurant: "Good gracious me! Great Nasi Lemak!" Petaling Jaya Restaurant Tip by xuessium
Petaling Jaya Restaurants: 42 reviews and 37 photos
Quite the buzzing local place - my group hit the place at lunch time and we count ourselves lucky to grab a table among the jostling crowd.
This place came highly recommended and it serves all-time Malaysian favourites such as Nasi Lemak, Nasi Dagang, Lontong, Penang Prawn Mee, Assam Laksa and Hainanese toast with coconut jam or kaya (Roti Bakar). All Halal as well! The menu is constantly changing to excite customers but the staples remained the same.
Simply eatery layout - tucking as many benches and chairs into a tiny shop space, which also means bad air ventilation - and that translates into YOU smelling like the shop when you exit it.
Opening Hours: Daily, 7am-9pm
Favorite Dish: The Nasi Lemak and the Local styled Fried Chicken came highly recommended and they did not disappoint.
The Nasi Lemak (Coconut milk rice) was rich and moist but not overly moist that you feel like you are eating thick porridge. If you smell hard enough, you can pick out the scent of pandan leaves hiding sultrily amidst the alluring scent of santan (coconut milk).
The Fried Chicken came oily. But hey, all the flavours are in there. A concoction of spices coated the chicken before it was deep-fried and you can just pick out the turmeric, chilli and coriander among others as each juicy morsels of tender meat enter your mouth.
Try the other dishes as well. I took a great fondness for the Garlic Mutton. Came sweet, spicy and tender - all signs of a great cook at work. The blackish mess looked initially unappetising but don't judge a book by its cover - this was the surprise performer of the day.
