One of the quintessential Malaysian breakfasts is of course Nasi Lemak, and nothing beats a plate of wholesome Nasi Lemak with fried chicken on a lazy weekend morning.
Well, if you get weak-kneed at the mention of Nasi Lemak, you should drop by at Kopitiam Ali, Muthu, and Ah Hock (AMAH) at Ara Damansara’s Oasis Square.
Oasis Square is shaping up to be a rather “happening” commercial area with ample parking, good pedestrian walking paths, and many restaurant choices.
AMAH is one of the more unique restaurants here that serves local delights like Nasi Lemak, Mee Rebus, Roti Jala, and Hainanese Chicken Rice among others, all reasonably priced.
The Nasi Lemak with fried chicken here comes with sambal, anchovies, peanuts, a few slices of cucumber, fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk, and a full quarter fried chicken.
The rice is flavourful, as is the sambal and turmeric-marinated chicken which has a crispy skin on the outside while being juicy inside.
How does AMAH’s stack up against the more famous Village Park Nasi Lemak? Well, they are on par flavour-wise, with AMAH’s offering a much more pleasant dining experience.
