From its humble beginning of a chicken rice and porridge stall along Old Klang Road in the 1960s, Nasi Ayam Chee Meng now has a chain of chicken rice shops in Klang Valley. rif and I went to the outlet in Old Klang Road. Certified halal, this fuss-free restaurant serves chicken rice (both steamed and roasted chicken), along with other local delights such as sambal prawns and kangkung belacan.
I’m not a chicken rice fan but the kick ass ginger dip and chilli sauce are what draws me back to eat. And of course, the chicken — steamed or roasted (RM7.50 – chicken leg, RM7 – chicken breast), it’s up to you. If you asked me, I’d say order both to try before deciding on which you like better. Sometimes, you might still be undecided because the roasted chicken skin is tasty, but the steamed chicken has a smoother texture.
The sambal prawn is fiery hot and hurts so good. I was sweating buckets (and swearing a little) as I tucked into each spoonful. If you’re a chilli wuss, stay away. No, run away haha! :P
They also serve curry laksa, if you ever have bad cravings the way I do. That said, this curry laksa is more Malay style so it’s a lot spicier. I finished my drink before I hit the half bowl mark. For RM9 per bowl, I found it pretty expensive but they were pretty generous with the ingredients.
