4. Ann Nasi Lemak
Sorry but this one isn’t halal! What makes this unique is that this chinese style nasi lemak is drizzled with pork skin curry, yes you read that right, pork skin curry. The store opens pretty early so this nasi lemak ain’t gonna satisfy your midnight hunger pangs.
People often queue up to try their signature curry and the nasi lemak is frequently paired with sambal sotong or sambal kerang.

5. Nasi Lemak Daun Pisang Seputeh
The hidden gem, this is a stall not known by most people unless you stay around the area. Opening from noon all the way past midnight, the stall drive regulars coming back every time with their fragrant rice and delicious sambal.
The place is value for money especially for their mouth watering nasi lemak. The rice is usually taken with fried chicken, but there are other dishes you can also pair it with. A personal favourite would be their paru-paru. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
The stall is located just along Lorong Syed Putra Kiri and you’ll be able to spot the place as the whole road is usually dark with only lights emitting from dim street lamps and the store.
Location: Lorong Syed Putra Kiri, Taman Persiaran Desa, 50460 Kuala Lumpur
Operating hours: 3.00pm till 2.00am daily
6. Big Tree Head Mamak

The nasi lemak here is pretty well known among residents of Kepong and it’s because of their fried chicken that’s made with a perfect crisp. Biting into their hot succulent chicken thigh, (although a little oily) the crispy fragrant outer layer gave a crunch like no other.
Location: Pesiaran Mergastua, Kepong Baru, 52100 Kuala Lumpur
Operating hours: 6.30pm-2.00am Mon to Sat; 6.30pm-12.00am Sun
