1st visit: 16 Feb, 8.40pm – sufficient rice for last 2 packs. And the guy in front of me ordered just exactly 2 packs. Well …
2nd visit: 17 Feb, 7.30pm – they are closed. Well …
3rd visit: 23 Feb, 7.30pm – THIRD TIME LUCKY!!! Not only they are open, but without queue!
I grew up eating nasi lemak from this humble nasi lemak stall at Kepong Wai Sek Kai. They have been operating from this location for as long as I remember.
2nd sis just tried Village Park Nasi Lemak last week, and she still prefers Nasi Lemak Jalan Antoi! “Nicer sambal,” she said.
I particularly enjoyed the friendly banter from the Uncle nasi lemak … “Sambal cukup ke? Kalau tak cukup, jangan malu minta lebih.” “Telur sebiji atau separuh? Atau dua biji?”
I didn’t see him around today, hopefully all is well with Uncle.
There is no stall name. It’s known as Nasi Lemak Jalan Antoi on Swarm, because of its location. No fixed closing day, they close as and when they want to. Ada gaya. They told me that they are usually open around 6.40pm-7.00pm.
The stall operators around them, don’t seem to like this nasi lemak stall much. Well, this is the only stall with perpetually long queue. I am sure the rest are fed up with constant question of “Are they open?” from customers, whenever the nasi lemak stall is closed.
Happy tummy filled with nasi lemak sotong, RM 5.10 (Update Feb 2017: Nasi lemak with sotong’s price increased to RM 5.50). (Update June 2017: Nasi lemak with sotong’s price further increased to RM 5.70).
Glad that I still managed my last nasi lemak before leaving KL.
