After I tapau-ed the Curry Laksa Supreme from Annie 1, I decided to do a Nasi Lemak Supreme from Home's Kitchen (not to be confused with the (sadly) closed Home Kitchen).
Let's see what the Nasi Lemak Supreme is all about.

It's a super loaded nasi lemak and that's what it would look like if you dined-in.
- Curry Chicken
- Butter Milk Chicken
- Luncheon Meat
- Nam Yu Pork
- Fried Pork Patty
- Fried Wanton
It sounded interesting lah and at RM29.80 per serving it better be good. I also ordered their "must try" Kopi.
The beverage is packed in a plastic bag and since I asked for ice, it came in another plastic bag, quite a generous serving of ice. I like!
The mug in my office is quite small, so I had to add ice and kopi in stages and I must say that I enjoyed the coffee very much.
Now for the piece de resistance.
As I ploughed through this behemoth of a nasi lemak, I felt that it ought to be called Nasi Lemak EXTREME XXXL because even with my super tangki, I was almost defeated.
The chicken curry is Chinese style which is something I hardly eat since I don't normally choose chicken curry when I tapau chap fan. I found this chicken curry to be very pleasing, I liked it a lot.
There were loads of ingredients piled on the nasi lemak. There were chunks of nam yu fried pork (nicely marinated), fried pork patty (a bit on the dry side), crispy fried wanton and two slices of fried luncheon meat.
The luncheon meat was all right and so was the nam yu pork. The fried wanton basically served its purpose as a crunchy component to the meal. The fried pork patty was not outstanding.
As for the nasi lemak, it had a very faint coconut aroma and it was pretty much as good as plain rice.
The (very generous serving of) sambal in all its deep red glossy glory could have done with sweet, salty and tangy elements. It was all spicy hot and flat. A pity.
Digging into the sambal, I found three delicious wantons which were not in the description. I reckon, these were to replace an item which I did not find in my nasi lemak - Butter Milk Chicken.
At the end of my meal, there was still a good portion of sambal left. Usually, you would not find me leaving sambal behind. I often complain there is not enough hah..hah..
I can vouch that this Nasi Lemak Supreme is not for the faint stomach-ed, and if you are a small eater, you cannot handle this by yourself. It easily feeds two or three itsy bitsy eaters.
In terms of volume, this nasi lemak delivers but tastewise, I feel that it falls short, particularly the sambal and the rice itself. This Nasi Lemak Supreme is more of a novelty - take a plain old nasi lemak and jazz it up by adding the not-so-usual accompaniments.
The restaurant can easily keep this item on the menu since they serve regular nasi lemak and also items like curry chicken and butter milk chicken which are served as set meals. The other stuff like fried luncheon meat and fried wanton can be easily whipped up on short notice.
I paid only RM10.00 for this meal.
By the way, side story - I went up the wrong staircase and ended up at another restaurant. The nice guy told me - oh you can get there using that door in the middle, since we are friends. Paiseh..paiseh.. my bad... (the two "friendly" restaurants are connected by an adjoining door).
