Breakfast at Village Park
For authentic local fare, you’ve got to brave the suburbs. Petaling Jaya’s Village Park (Facebook: Village Park Restaurant) may look a little shabby, but it’s extremely popular mainly due to the unofficial national breakfast of Malaysia – nasi lemak. Coconut flavoured rice is served with deep-fried ikan bilis (anchovies), sambal (spicy gravy) and a choice of their famed fried chicken or beef rendang. Portions are generous and the fried chicken is a thing of beauty – crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.
