Now continuing from part one, obviously that plate of RM5.50 pancake was not enough to fill up our stomachs and we didn't want to fill them up with more pancakes either :P So we headed back to Beach Street's Sri Weld Food Court for our next target, all time Malaysian favourite... nasi lemak :D

Of course riding motorcycle means we can park right in front of the nasi lemak stall for FREE XD During weekends, no vicious looking old Ah Pek with tarred teeths, were there to snatch parking lots from us.

The food court is so much more enjoyable too at that span of the week. Not many stalls open but it doesn't matter because most importantly the nasi lemak stall is open :)

My personal favourite, Ali Nasi Lemak.

In the picture below are the stall helpers. I believe they are the owner's family members.

At the other side of the stall, a person fries a lot of ikan bilis (anchovies) and cooks up a huge wok of sambal. The sambal would then be poured into metal buckets. Yah buckets, not small small bowl :P

These nasi lemaks are wrapped 100% with banana leaves. Environtmentally friendly right? The leaves are not only a sustainable source, it also helps to kill the bacterias in the food which is placed on the banana leaf.

Anyway, what goes under the leaves eh?

All nasi lemak are freshly packed. Not because they are packed for you upon ordering, instead they continuously pack MANY packets and they sell out quick. So the nasi lemak does not sit for long. While taking pictures, there was already a lady ordered 6 packets of nasi lemak :S The last time I asked, I they mentioned that they sell about a thousand packs per day O.o

That morning, I was lucky because they just opened and I lost count of how many packets they prepared :P

I just love their coconut milk infused rice. So fragrant and they add quite alot of ginger too :D

First round of packing, they prepared Nasi Lemak Ikan (RM1.50) and Nasi Lemak Udang (RM1.50).

RM1.50 (small) and RM2.00 (big).

After arranging the fried fish and prawns on the rice, hot sambal would be poured onto the rice.

It looks red hot but actually its not as spicy as you think.

Normally I would have the Nasi Lemak Ikan Bilis + Telur (RM1.50) which also bears the same price as the other two nasi lemak.

Some might be slightly particular about its serving size as some considered it small. Well you can always ask them to add another bowl of rice and make it RM2 lol... If not mistaken, they use to sell it at RM1 then RM1.20. Now RM1.50...all thanks to inflation? Well, I don't know :P

W and me, each had a packet of the regular ikan bilis nasi lemak. I always asked them not to add to much gravy into the rice. If you didn't, it turns to nasi lemak ikan bilis sambal soup :S Too wet and the gravy is quite salty. So to avoid all that, just tell them "kuah sikit". This way you get to savour the slightly sweet fragrant coconut milk cooked rice and balanced up with some slightly spicy-salty sambal ikan bilis. For the first time, those ikan bilis in the gravy were still crunchy. Thumbs up :D

It was an enjoyable Saturday morning breakfast indeed. More to come...

Happy reading~
