Know where to get the best nasi lemak in town?
Head down to Damansara Uptown, located near one of the corner, is a new joint (ok, not so new) called Village Park Restaurant.
I've heard a lot of raving reviews of the Nasi Lemak here, so I decided to check it out one day.
We ordered each a Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken. At RM6.80 per plate, it's one of the pricier mamak Nasi Lemak you find these days.
But oh god, it's so worth it.
The fried chicken was one of the crunchiest and tastiest fried chickens I've tried in a long time. KFC was so below par compared to this.
The key ingredient however, in my opinion, was the sambal. Not too spicy and rather sweetish, it blended too well with coconut milk rice and fried chicken drumstick.
I topped it off with a heavy drink, hailed from Singapore culture - Milo Dinosaur.
Priced at RM4.90. It was rather pricey for a Milo drink. But if you look at it as a ice blended chocolate drink, it's really quite reasonable, and definitely sharable between two people.
Normally Milo Dinosaur is just Milo mixed with condensed milk and topped with a generous tablespoon of Milo powder. I first heard and drank such drink was in Singapore two years ago.
But the one in Village Park served the drink ice blended. Thick, rich, icey cold and chocolate-y. What more can one ask for?
Try it. It's worth the visit.
Though the restaurant can get really packed during lunch hour, then it's much faster to self service and queue order your own Nasi Lemak from the counter.
