Yummy Nasi Lemak House @ Taman Century, Johor Baru

Yummy Nasi Lemak House @ Taman Century, Johor Baru

Although Nasi Lemak is one of the most popular food among Malaysian, it is definitely adventurous to specialise and sell only Nasi Lemak in a restaurant. Yummy Nasi Lemak House has taken the challenge by offering Nasi Lemak and Mee Siam only as its main courses. Their menu has only 2 pages, featuring Nasi Lemak and Mee Siam with different side dishes, i.e. fried chicken, rendang chicken and rendang mutton.

Other than the main course, they have various nyonya kuih-muih displayed at the counter, good to be served as breakfast or high tea snacks.
Otak-Otak  RM1 per stick
While waiting for the Nasi Lemak to be served, patrons can also try their otak-otak. I actually like its otak-otak very much, as it is made of real fish and we can still see and taste the texture of fish flesh. It is not too spicy and just right to my taste.
Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng  RM9.90
Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng is their signature dish. To ensure the freshness and crunchiness of the fried chicken, the restaurant will not pre-fry too many chicken in advance. So if you are ordering more than 3 sets of Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng, you might need to wait for 10-15 minutes for the chicken to be fried. 

The fried chicken is marinated well and because it was served hot, the outer layer was very crispy but remained moist and juicy in the inside. The oil temperature was controlled well too, so the fried chicken is not oily at all.

Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang  RM10.90
The Ayam Rendang matched well with Nasi Lemak too, the rempah was not too pungent. I would prefer it to be with slightly more gravy. 

Instead of sliced cucumber, the Nasi Lemak is complemented with achar, which makes the Nasi Lemak less sinful and more appetizing. Papadam (which normally being served with Nasi Briyani) is also made as a side dish here, to add different texture to the dish. The combination is slightly new but perfectly matched.
