Village Park Restaurant, Malaysia

This post is long overdue! I was in Malaysia last year in December for my cousin’s wedding. We weren’t there for long, we were in Kuala Lumpur (‘KL’) for four days, three nights. It’s been a very long time since I went to KL, we didn’t really want to do the tourist-y stuff as we have done that before. All I wanted to do was spend some time with family and EAT! I love Malaysian food, nasi lemak, es campur, kueh – I wanted to eat it all. However, due to family commitments, I didn’t get a chance to eat a lot of Malaysian food! No worries, Malaysia is not that far from Hong Kong, so I am pretty sure we will be back again sometimes soon!

We ate a lot of Chinese food, Chinese banquets mainly. I can’t remember the name of the restaurant where we went first night we were in KL. However, food was excellent, I especially loved the four hot and cold dishes combination, the chicken and fish were pretty tasty. But the dessert – red bean ‘pan cake’ was soooo good!

We had brunch at Village Park Restaurant in Malaysia – winner of the best nasi lemak in klang valley in 2010!

We left all the ordering to my cousin-in-law’s parents and they ordered superbly! The base, just the rice – nasi lemak with chili sauce and some peanuts. Loved the fragrant rice which was cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaf.

The fried chicken was seriously one of the best fried chickens I have had. The crispy and thin skin, the tender meat, it was fantastic! We ordered several plates of this, partially because I ate a ½ on my own! It was THAT good!

The sotong (squid) curry was spicy which really gave it that nice kick! Really enjoyed the sotong here.

Tempeh – fermented soy beans which was deep fried was nice.

The spicy eggplant I utterly enjoyed!

P1180179

Fried pork floss was crunchy but seriously sinful – pretty sure I ate half a plate on my own!

The fish curry complemented the nasi lemak well.

Last but not least, vegetables… I didn’t have a lot of this as I wanted more of the chicken and the fish curry.

It was an EXCELLENT meal, it was like nasi padang in Indonesia – so many choices I didn’t know where to start. Highlights would have to be the fried chicken, the fried pork floss and fish curry!

I couldn’t resist in getting es cincau (grass jelly) with milk. It definitely went down well, especially with all the spicy food.

‘The Mother’ managed to get his seafood laksa fix – he said it wasn’t too bad, thinks they are better places though. Think we had this in a shopping mall and I am sure the laksa on the side street would be infinitely better.

These fancy popsicles I love! I really wanted to try the durian one but they sold out so ended up getting the watermelon which was deliciously refreshing – especially on a hot day.

P1180188

Managed to eat es campur at Little Penang Kafe – it wasn’t too bad but I have to say I still prefer the es campur in Indonesia.

P1180291

The rojak was a also excellent – had to make sure that they didn’t put any nuts. Fresh fruits, oh how I miss good rojak. The other items on the menu looked pretty good but we were having another banquet that evening so didn’t want to eat too much.

And of course a Chinese banquet for the wedding.

    I still don’t think I’ve had a proper experience of what Malaysian cuisine is all about, might have to schedule a trip to KL 😉
    Love the photo of your little family, especially her royal highness hehe
