I guess she knows me by now as she did ask me once if I was “that blogger” and I said yes, the lady proprietress…
…of the Nasi Kerabu Warong stall at the Permai Food Court here.
I dropped by again the other morning, Tuesday, to tapao the very nice nasi kerabu for lunch and while I was there, I thought I would try something different and asked for the nasi tomato ayam masak merah since according to the sign…
…it would be available that day. However, I was told that it would only be available for lunch. They have specific specials for specific days, it seems and it sure looks like I would have to go back on a Thursday to try their Nasi Arab.
The sweet and generous lady said that she would like to give me her nasi dagang, a Terengganu delight (nasi kerabu is Kelantanese)…
…to try. That usually comes with gulai ikan, a fish (usually ikan tongkol) curry…
…and theirs came with an egg some more. Yes, it was very nice and without doubt, it would be good alternative if one does not feel like having nasi kerabu on certain days.
I also tapao-ed their nasi lemak with chicken rendang (RM6.00)…
…home to try for breakfast and I loved it! The rice was just so-so, not as lemak as I would want it but the chicken was so good, bursting with the flavours of the daun kunyit (turmeric leaves) and whatever else that went into the cooking. It is only RM5.00 here though, with a very much smaller piece of chicken and half an egg only and the last time I asked for a fried egg, I was charged another RM1.50 for it!
Rest assured that I would be heading back here for more again and again and hopefully, I shall get to try some of the other nice stuff that they have on their menu.

I think it is a great idea to have the sign indicating the menu for each specific day. The curry fish that comes with the nasi dagang looks good. The other day I had nasi ayam percik and I quite like it.
I always ask for ayam percik to go with our nasi kerabu and the lady will always give me the drumsticks, no extra charge – not like at the Chinese chicken rice places. I loved the nasi dagang, the fish curry was very nice – my girl liked the gravy so much. Will want to try the Nasi Arab next.
Sure looks good! I love both nasi kerabu and nasi dagang 🙂
…and I’ve had very good Nasi Arab too! Yet to check out the one here.
The chicken rendang looks very tasty and flavourful, i would love to have that. And look at the fish curry gravy, yums!
I need to go google to find out what is nasi arab, nasi dagang etc, i only know nasi kerabu and nasi lemak lol.
So many things out there! Many from foreign countries that I do not know of as well, have to google.
Felt so honored to have people recognizes you kan?
No lah! So shy! LOL!!!
