PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
The name says it all – Nasi Lemak House offers Malaysia’s national dish in 13 different variants, as well as other well-priced traditional options. Open long hours and catering to the uni crowd, this cheap dive is always crowded but also offers takeaway if the small dining space is full. Order items from the large wall menu (complete with colour photographs), and take a number before you serve yourself with cutlery, water and a choice of condiments. The popular signature dish comes complete with a fried chicken drumstick, coconut rice, ikan bilis (dried anchovies), pappadums, peanuts and sambal, all topped with a fried egg. Variations include nasi lemak Nyonya with beef rendang, nasi lemak langkawi with battered calamari rings or vegetarian with fried tofu.

As well as its eponymous dish, Nasi Lemak House also offers traditional Malaysian hawker dishes such as char kuay teow, mee goreng and curry laksa. Try hawker favourites such as Hainanese chicken or hokkien mee with prawns, chicken, squid and seasonal vegetables or something less well known such as wat dan crispy mee, Hong Kong Beehoon or loh mein – hokkien noodles, seafood and chicken in a rich and sour soup. Most dishes will set you back less than ten dollars. This eatery is unlicensed, but instead of wine try a cup of tarik, a sweet black tea, to counteract the fiery sambal.
