Nasi kukus is probbaly one of the most eaten dish in the country. Whether it is lunch or dinner, or even breakfast, we love this dish very dearly indeed. Nasi kukus lejen at Damansara Upotwn is conveniently the place to seek this comfort dish. Serving in paper wrap instead of plates, the best way to eat it is with your hands. The warm steamed rice topped with spicy sambal, together with a delicious piece of ayam goreng berempah is one of the most satisfying meals especially on a Sunday for late brunch.
You would normally get a random chicken part but I am sure you can request for your favourite part. I usually like my chicken rib. And for a price of RM 6.50 for either the Nasi Kukus Ayam Goreng Kunyit or Nasi Kukus Ayam Berempah, one should not complain too much on the inconsistency. We sound that some chicken pieces can be a little dry although mine was tender and delicious. The silvers of pineapple added to the dish was really helpful brining out so much more flavour to their sambal and the spicy easily gets you salivating non-stop.
Those who are not in favourable to spicy food can help yourself with their beverage but I recommend skipping that. After all, we are in Damansara uptown. You can cool it off with some icy dessert within the enclave. I can tell you anyone of those is way better than what they have to offer here. Our corn drink has an obvious taste of chlorine but it was subtle in the Coconut Shake maybe because it was overpowered by the vanilla scoop in it.
Definitely returning for the nasi kukus with cat fish, I would say this could easily be my next favourite spot for nasi kukus. The curry and sambal were too addictive indeed. Plus, the cheap prices and quick service make this place a winner.
