Nasi Lemak Stall @ Taman Maju Jaya

One of my favourite "Nasi Lemak" (fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk) stalls is the one in front of HTN Car Service Centre in Taman Maju Jaya, just a stone's throw away from Pandan Indah.

This Malay kakak has been plying her trade at this spot for more than 20 years and has managed to put her children to university...gutsy lady indeed!
The Nasi Lemak Stall @ Taman Maju Jaya is one of the few stalls I have come across where their customers would diligently queue up, in an orderly fashion, to buy their nasi lemak....which is great (first come, first served).  So, if you do come here, don't crowd around the stall but take your place in the line and await your turn.
Their best seller is their "sotong sambal" (chilli squid).  Their sotong is cooked till very tender....just the way I like it!'s only 9am but their sotong is already scrapping the bottom of their "periuk" (pot) already!
The nice thing about this nasi lemak is their 3 types of sambal, one the fiery red sambal, the other, a yellowish type, and if you ask for sotong, you get the 3rd kind which is the sambal from the sotong.  Mix all 3 of that into the nice, fluffy, well separated grains of rice and you will have a spoonful of yumminess in your mouth....but don't worry, it's not very spicy!
The other thing I love about this nasi lemak, apart from their 3 types of sambal, is their fried ikan bilis.  These were slightly salty, crispy and fragrant, unlike the hard ones (some super hard) that you get from most nasi lemak stalls.
This is the Nasi Lemak Sotong @ RM3.20 awaiting to be "bungkus" (packed)....can't wait!
Here's how the mouth-watering nasi lemak looks like before I devoured it and it's all gone in a jiffy!!
And, if you want more (and you definitely will), you can add on more rice for an extra RM0.50....yay, more....more nasi lemak!!!  The mix of the 3 types of sambal brings an explosion (of the good kind) of flavours in your mouth and you find yourself returning to this nasi lemak stall time and time again as you will be hungry for more!
My Personal Opinion
A simple, no-fuss, uber delicious nasi lemak.....a very affordable breakfast indeed!
