Nasi Lemak Tepi Jalan 1996 at Cheras Selatan: Cafe Review

Nasi Lemak Tepi Jalan 1996 pays tribute to a late matriarch who started selling nasi lemak at a street-side stall in Desa Petaling more than two decades ago; her family members have preserved her legacy with this full-fledged eatery where the signature temptation hits the spot for both taste and texture.

You can have your basic nasi lemak, fragrant and flavoursome, with accompaniments like crispy ayam goreng rempah and spicy sambal kerang. But the latest generation that helms Nasi Lemak Tepi Jalan hopes to also galvanise customers with a Nasi Lemak Ketam (RM25) and Nasi Lemak Lobster (RM20).

The crab version is surprisingly satisfying, coated in a cheese sauce – it’s a messy, finger-licking meal, but the tender crustacean flesh and mild sauce work well with the nasi lemak, reinforcing the versatility of Malaysia’s ceaselessly relevant national dish.
