The Forbidden Nasi Lemak @ Jalan San Peng KL

San Peng Non Halal Nasi Lemak

Nasi lemak is typical Malaysian favourite dish. We can have it any time of the day. Usually, we always see only Malays and mamak selling nasi lemak. Have you tried a non halal nasi lemak where fried butter luncheon meat and Chinese sausage  been served as side dishes.
In this week, i had been reading few blogs regarding the famous non halal nasi lemak of San Peng Road KL. Some do give good comments but some don’t. I had tried to locate the shop on the 1st attempt yesterday after pick up my wife from work but fail and we end up tapau food from Mc’D at Jalan Pahang drive thru.
After reading few blogs regarding the famous San Pen Non Halal Nasi Lemak, there is one blog which give the exact location of the shop with google maps been tag. With it, i manage to locate the shop finally. As what some of the blogs did mention that the place quite pack with patrons at night and it was true indeed. It not just a normal car park by the road side but most of those luxury big cars such as Alphard, BMW, Mercedes, Camry and etc . You won’t miss this nasi lemak shop at Jalan San Peng where it’s the only shop by the road side full with patrons and with long queuing at the nasi lemak cart.

Me and my wife tapau and select few of the side dishes to come along with the nasi lemak. There are varieties of side dishes to choose from.  As been warned in most of the blogs I read, the price really outrages. 1 portion of side dishes is RM1 except for the chicken curry which is based on the part you choose either wing, thigh, drumstick or breast. If you want to have all the side dishes, you might end up more than RM10 or might reach RM20. Guess how much do i pay for our nasi lemak freaking price. It was RM15.10 for 2 nasi lemak and the aunty give discount 10 cents so it was only RM15. That is the most expensive nasi lemak i had compared to the price nasi lemak of Wisma Genting and the nasi lemak by the road side selling near to my old office which is way more cheaper.

The price of the Nasi Lemak RM8.60 + RM6.50 = RM15.10 discount 10 cent by the aunty so RM15.

When we reach home, i’m quickly snap of the photo of both nasi lemak which we bought. My wife nasi lemak consists of 1 curry chicken wing, 2 slices of curry potato, 1 spoon of dice long bean, 1 fried egg, 1 fried butter luncheon meat, 1 teaspoon of fried anchovies, 1 tablespoon of sambal, 1 teaspoon of fried kacang, 2 slice of cucumber and 1 small bowl of nasi lemak cost around freaking RM6.50.

But my nasi lemak consists of 1 curry chicken thigh, 1 spoon of dice long bean, 1 small piece of chicken gizzard, 1 fried egg, 1 fried butter luncheon meat, 1 teaspoon of fried anchovies, 1 tablespoon of sambal, 1 teaspoon of fried kacang, 2 slice of cucumber and 1 small bowl of nasi lemak cost around freaking RM8.60.

Like been mention by other blogs, it ain’t cheap but yet still a lot of patrons craving for non halal food. The taste of the sambal is moderate spicy. Not too spicy and not that less spicy. Just in the middle of spicy. The luncheon meat is fried with butter and it taste quite nice. The chicken curry less coconut milk and just nice for those who like moderate curry taste. For the rice, they are using fragrant rice and you can smell pandan leafs aroma on it.
If you willing to try out something different, try the famous non halal nasi lemak at Jalan San Peng. It located behind the shop lot just next to Shell station. You may refer to the map i’m attached with my blogs.

P/S: This is the first time i didn’t bring my SLR out for food hunting. Some of the photo of the shop taken from other blogs for reference. But the food i snap at home is the actual nasi lemak from Jalan San Peng.
