Nasi Lemak Tanglin

Recommendation by Lemi

Head to Nasi Lemak Tanglin for a taste of Malaysia’s national dish! Enjoy fluffy, fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf, served with sambal (chili pepper paste), ikan bilis (fried anchovies), peanuts, cucumber, and a boiled egg. Each plate also comes with your choice of ayam goreng (fried chicken), beef rendang (spicy meat curry), or squid. Nasi Lemak Tanglin has been around since 1948, making it one of the most authentic nasi lemak joints in the city! Drop by early to get ahead of the long queue; the place gets pretty packed, especially during lunch hour!
