Located less than a minute away from Taman Megah is Serunai Nasi Lemak. This probably is one of the latest additions to the F&B lineup in the area. As its name suggest, they serve primarily Nasi Lemak here.
The restaurant occupies a corner lot and is large, spacious. Rather than use the space and insert as many tables and chairs as possible, they’ve instead spaced out the seating arrangements to ensure a good amount of space between tables and customers. This I liked as not many restaurants do so.
Right at the entrance, you’d be led towards the counter, where you choose your add ons and place your order. One can anticipate seeing items like Ayam Masak Merah, Daging Rendang, Ikan Sumbal, Sotong Sambal, Kangkung, Tempe and more.
Nasi Lemak Biasa, RM 4.90 + Tempeh, RM 3.90 + Long Beans with Coconut, RM 3.90 + Ikan Sumbat, RM 13.90 + Fried Egg, RM 2 + Ayam Masak Merah, TBC
Nasi Lemak Biasa includes rice, an egg, sambal, cucumber, crunchy bits and fried onions. By itself, it was good enough. The sambal had good flavor. It was thick in texture and wasn’t too spicy with hints of sweetness. I love the crunchy bits and fried onions inclusion here that I requested for extra. With every mouthfull of rice eaten, it was accompanied with crunch, crunch and crunch.
We added on several items. The tempe was lovely, I enjoyed eating it on its own. It looked like muesli, lol and had a good mix of spicy and sweet. I honestly wouldn’t mind munching on a larger portion of it. The long beans with coconut was refreshing. The beans itself was cooked in simple stir fry method with provided it with a nice crunch. The addition of grated coconut gave it some pleasant sweetness. As for the Ikan Sumbat, it was basically Cencaru fish with some stuffed filling. The fish was fried well, crispy on the outside, with some good flavor. The filling is made up of their own combination of ‘cili giling’. The Ayam Masak Merah included 4 pieces of chicken. Meat was tender and tastewise, it was sweet-ish, not too spicy.
Overall, we had a satisfying dinner at Serunai Nasi Lemak. Will I be back here for another visit? Yes, I would. I intend to give their Sotong Sambal a try and get my hands on more of the tempe.
