Nasi Lemak and Teh Tarik Breakfast at RM2.00, Kepong Baru Wet Market Mamak Stall

The Kepong Baru wet market were bustling with activities last week during the Chinese Winter Solstice festival. Housewife and also maybe “househusbands” were busy buying goodies and raw ingredients to prepare a feast for the family to celebrate this festival. The mamak stall that is located on the same building as the Royal House Restaurant, were packed with patrons, having their early morning breakfast. This Mamak stall share the same corner as a Chinese mee (noodle) stall, so you have a choice of Mamak fare or Chinese food. As I was rushing home to cook after my marketing rounds at the market, I decided to have a quick breakfast of pre packed nasi lemak and a small cup of teh tarik. The nasi lemak is of a spicy one, not the sweet type. The sambal (chili with shrimp paste) is not thick but taste quite good as it has been absorbed into the creamy nasi lemak rice. The nasi lemak accompanied by anchovies, roasted peanuts and a quarter hard boil egg cost RM1.00 per packed. I down every bits of the nasi lemak with a cup of refreshing hot teh tarik (milk tea) that cost me RM1.00. So, total bill came up to be RM2.00. Simple, good and cheap morning breakfast!
