Stand in line…

I’ve tried it before a long long time ago when there was just a stall by the roadside in front of the surau at Bandong here and I tried it a second time but I would not say it was something I would be dying for and one thing’s for sure, it was definitely not anything I would stand in line for. However, come Ramadan, the Muslim fasting month, I would see people queuing up by the mile to buy and no, I never bothered.

Then, they opened this shop…

Nasi Kak Wok

…without a sign initially but it sure seemed that everyone knew it was there and everytime I drove past, I would see the crowd and at times, there might be queues outside the shop even…like they were giving out the food for free or something. No, of course I did not bother to join the rampage to check the place out, no way.

That day, it was already around 4.00 p.m. and I noticed that it was still open. There were a number of tables occupied but no, it was not full, no crowd, so I decided that I would give them another chance.

Hmmm!!! It looked like the price had increased by a ringgit from those previous times when I had it…

I asked for the regular (RM5.00)…

…and took my seat at a vacant table for it to be served.

Once again, it failed to win me over, not when it was just plain rice drowned with some gulai (curry) gravy that was a little sweet, I thought and the fried chicken was just fried chicken, no more no less…all breast! At best, I would say it was all right but given a choice, I would rather go for something else.

Somebody did tell me before that the sambal

…was super spicy and indeed, it was! However, they only gave a little bit of it and I mixed it all with the rice so that made it quite bearable, not a problem at all…for me.

NASI KAK WOK (2.318622, 111.832323) is located among the Sg Antu shops at No. 1, Jln Tapang Timur, Off Jalan Kampung Nangka, directly facing RTM Sibu.

  1. Do they sell sup kambing? Suddenly have craving for it.

    This is a Malay place. At best, there will be sup tulang. Come to think of it, we do not have sup kambing here, not even at the few Indian/mamak shops.

  2. I bet your missus will love the super spicy sambal but not me. Neither do I like the rice. They say breast meat is the most healthy part of the chicken meat….πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

    Deep fried is not too bad, don;t like breast in soup. Yes, I’m sure she will love the sambal cili, so super hot.

  3. Nasi Kak Wok is just an ordinary meal but got hyped up status due to the media. Breast meat is not for me. Give me thigh anytime πŸ˜€

    Exactly!!! I love nasi kerabu and nasi dagang is quite nice too but no, nasi kak wok just don’t impress me in any way, thank you very much.
