Right price…

I went back to this coffee shop to try the roti canai there. I had the Foochow fried noodles from another stall when I was there that day so I could not possibly have anything else.

When I got there, I saw that they also had nasi lemak, the biasa (regular) at only RM3.50 a plate, not as expensive as the one I had at another place the other day and there was also the nasi lemak ayam

…that is the same price as the aforementioned, only RM6.50 a plate.

Of course, I simply had to order that to try and I would say it did not look too bad when it was served. I would certainly give them due credit for cutting the edge of the brown paper for the floral pattern in their effort to make the presentation look nicer…

Of course, the test of the pudding is in the eating and I’m afraid to say that the rice was not lemak at all. I could not detect any hint of the santan (coconut milk) in it but it had a taste of its own. It wasn’t exactly like chicken rice but it was quite nice and yes, it was not hard and dry and like most of the nasi lemak around here, I quite enjoyed it with the super pedas (hot & spicy) sambal

…and all the add-ons that came with it…


This is probably the only place in town where they took the trouble to remove the heads and insides of the ikan bilis (dried anchovies) unlike all the lazy people at all the other nasi lemak places around here – I certainly would give them the double thumbs up for that.

Initially, I thought that piece of chicken looked kind of small…

…and unimpressive but when I tried it, it sure swept me off my feet. It was crusty and crispy on the outside – I loved the skin so much…and yes, it was sweet and tender, cooked to perfection on the inside.

Yes, I did order the roti canai kosong (plain)…

…and it was very nicely done too. The dhal dip was great but it was RM2.00 a piece, a bit more expensive than the one that I had here that day.

It turned out that the pretty, sweet young thing running the stall was Indonesian and they also served nasi ayam geprek, whatever that is, but it was not available that day. I saw in the photo that the rice was yellow in colour and there was the very nice fried chicken as well. I sure would want to go back there and try that one of these days.

The roti canai/nasi lemak stall…

…is located at the DELTA SEAFOOD & CAFE (2.307832, 111.825125) along Lorong Delta 10, in the blocks of shops somewhere right behind the public swimming pool there.

  1. Wow, this nasi lemak looks so presentable. The look of it makes one feel it is worth the money spend unlike the other one with a slice of cucumber, half of hard-boiled egg, few peanuts and ikan bilis also for the same price. Love the roti canai too.
