Brilliant Nasi Lemak House (Kepong)

Brilliant Nasi Lemak House

This must some kind of record for us, seeing that we’ve been posting everyday non-stop since Christmas. Oh well, all in the name of our humble photo-blog. And by the way, today is Cat’s birthday!

We were in the neighbourhood looking for phone related accessories (folks here are way friendlier then the poor excuse for a sales attendant at E-Media over on the 2nd floor of Tropicana City Mall) when we stumbled across this restaurant.

We’ve been meaning to try this 1Nasi Lemak establishment for quite a while now but did not manage to schedule a trip to any one of its branches. Brilliant Nasi Lemak House has been garnering favourable reviews and we were excited to see if it lived up to its hype.

everything we ordered came solely from this page
we did not notice the Lowyat branch 

Brendan ordered his Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken; Cat sampled the Sotong (squid) 2Sambal while I tried the 3Nyonya Curry Chicken.

2sauce typically made from a variety of chilli peppers and secondary ingredients such as shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, sugar, lime juice, and rice vinegar or other vinegars
3descendants of late 15th and 16th-century Chinese immigrants to Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore, its cuisine developed using typical Malay spices

beverages never looked so good!

we can hardly wait
all smiles from the birthday girl
marvellously devoid of taxes!

The verdict? We hold our hands up in surrender and admit that Brilliant Nasi Lemak House deserves every single bit of hype garnered, and we would rank it as being second to only the excellent Village Park Restaurant  in terms of taste. And the damage? Together with a round of Red Bean 4Cendol for moi, Coca Cola for Brendan and Iced Lemon Tea for Cat, the total came to only RM35.00, definitely within the realms of the everyday food for the everyday person. Would we come again? In a heartbeat!

  1. 不知廉耻!马华简直是禽兽集团!——转载:马华是反佛教!


    马华,以及雪州联委会副主席拿督叶金福(YIP KUM FOOK),还算是人吗?





    Datuk YIP KUM FOOK (Lawyer) was destroyed Buddhist monk for removing the Buddhist monks from the Buddhist temple (SAMNAK SAMBODHI) in Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong, now the believers are boycotting the Temple; no one goes to the temple, because the temple will soon be closed

    The last time we were members of the committee, when the more famous temple Datuk YIP KUM FOOK kicked our members out, this is very sad, please think about it and please research on the internet if you want to know more info

  2. Dear Sir and Madam,

    We are from the Buddhist community in Malaysia and we want to inform more about Datuk Yip Kum Fook on social media or internet news because it is very bad, embarrassing for Buddhists in Malaysia, and abroad

    Our topic is Datuk Yip Kum Fook is a lawyer, MCA Gombak, President of SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST ASSOCIATION in Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong and others. He is very bad for the Buddhist Temple because he plays politics in the Temple, cheats money and cheats women for sex everywhere. Now many are boycotting him

    We have already written to too many organizations and Buddhists societies (Temples) in Malaysia and abroad to protect Buddhism and other religions in the world. On the other hand, we plan to have a letter to the Sultan of Selangor to return the title of Datuk to the Sultan of Selangor as soon as possible, this makes the Sultan of Selangor embarrassed and of poor quality

    Again, in the internet, so many people comments and posts about Datuk Yip Kum Fook and they say bad things to Datuk Yip Kum Fook, this also causes MCA to lose for any election because everyone goes to research the internet as technology nowadays.

    Finally, we thank you for your kind cooperation in this matter and we hope to hear good news from you as soon as possible… we love our Buddhists and MCA in Malaysia

    With kindly
    Buddhist group in Kepong

  3. Kini, Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong adalah satu berita yang sangat buruk kerana salah seorang ahli politik melakukan kerja kotor di Kuil Buddha dan membawa sistem politik bermain di kuil sehingga ahli masyarakat lari dan presiden Kuil ini (Samnak Sambodhi). ) ialah Datuk Yip Kum Fook yang merupakan bekas pengerusi MCA di Taman Daya , Kepong dan pengerusi MCA Gombak

    Lelaki ini (Datuk Yip) selalu menelefon polis untuk menangkap sami Buddha dan menutup pintu Kaabah untuk tidak membenarkan sami Buddha masuk untuk menginap, semua sami Buddha terpaksa menyewa hotel untuk seketika...Mr Tan dan Kelemahan Encik Wah pada hari itu, pasukannya, samseng dan dua anggota polis datang mengganggu Ven. Phra Piyadhamma (Pulau Pinang atau bekas CID dari Singapura)

    Sejak kejadian itu, ramai penganut meninggalkan kuil kerana di kuil, mereka melakukan perkara yang tidak baik, kini jawatankuasa mengambil sami Buddha Myanmar untuk berkhidmat kerana mereka tidak mengambil berat tentang masalah Kuil sebelum ini atau Datuk Yip Kum Fook...ini seorang yang sangat kotor kerana dia boleh menipu semua orang

    Kini Datuk Yip Kum Fook dan pasukannya akan menderita dan terluka kerana ramai yang tahu apa yang berlaku...ada yang ramai tidak suka Datuk Yip Kum Fook dan dia akan tahu apakah dosa terbesar dalam agama Buddha?

  4. Our Buddhism is very good for allowing a very bad person in the committee or president of the Buddhist association (Datuk Yip Kum Fook), this DATUK YIP KUM FOOK is deceiving people everywhere, now many people know about him what he did.

    DATUK YIP KUM FOOK was a truck driver delivering furniture and business furniture in Taman Daya, Kepong, and he joined MCA and became MCA chairperson in Taman Daya at that time.

    My name is Mr. Lim and I founded of SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST TEMPLE at Taman Ehsan in 1989, we are a group, and our master (founders)

    Now many say that DATUK YIP KUM FOOK is suffering from his illness, it is his karma for disturbing and removing Buddhists from the Temple and deceiving people everywhere, as a result his life will suffer and his health will be unstable in the future. and people will laugh at him

  5. DATUK YIP KUM FOOK and his brother-in-law (SIMON LOW KOK MENG) kicked Buddhist monks out of the Buddhist Temple (SAMNAK SAMBODHI, Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong) a few years ago

    The evil never stops from people's thoughts, gossip, and so on, and because DATUK YIP KUM FOOK is a great sinner in Buddhism, he cannot run away with this bad karma forever in this life and the next life and his family will falls in what he does with the Buddhist Sangha

    He understands that the Sangha is our Buddha disciples, any monk has to live by the Sangha laws of their community, and they cannot just wear yellow robes and serve the devotees.

    Now the news is all on the internet, we hear from people, he gives some money to someone to delete comments on the internet but people are sharing and forwarding all those messages more and more
