If there is one dish that no Malaysians can say “NO” to, it would be nasi lemak. While we do love Village Park’s rendition of this dish, eating the same Nasi Lemak over and over again can be boring. Also, Village Park can get too crowded for one to dine comfortably.
Hence we’ve listed 10 Best Nasi Lemak in KL & PJ That is Not Village Park. Believe us when we say, some of the nasi lemak in this list actually taste better than Village Park.
