Kuala Lumpur - Breakfast at Nasi Lemak Wanjo

Nasi Lemak is coconut rice served with sambal, fried ikan bilis (dried anchovies) an egg and a host of other optional bits. It is perhaps the quintessential Malay breakfast. This version was at Nasi Lemak Wanjo in the Kampung Baru neighborhood of Kuala Lumpur.

In addition to the staples, you choose your own extras. We got one plate with beef rendang:

and another piled high with chicken (fried, and rendang):

The rice was really good, with more coconut flavor than other versions I've had, and both the beef and the chicken were very tasty.

The place was bustling on a Saturday morning, but everything was run very efficiently and the line moved quickly.

Washed down with some iced milk tea, this breakfast really hit the spot.
