Warung Cherry @ Kampung Sungai Penchala KL

With the month of Ramadan drawing to an end, it is kind of sad to say good bye to the food carnival and the street bazaars that we love. However, the good all Malay warungs are still here to stay. Amongst one of our favourite Malay restaurants that serves home cooked nosh such as the comforting sup tulang, fish cooked on a hot grill, clams, kuih and curries can be found at Warung Cherry.

stack em high!

Not unlike the ecomony rice, the Nasi Campur at Warung Cherry, Kampung Sungai Penchala is full of choices, and comes laid out, sometimes with dishes stacked on top of each other for want of more space. Some of the popular picks here come from a variety of dishes (not just nasi campur) such as Nasi Ayam Berempah, Gulai Ketam, Patin Tempoyak, Pulut Durian, Sup Tulang, Gulai Itik, Gulai Balitong, Siakap Masak Tempoyak, Gulai Siput, Asam Pedas, Ayam Berempah, Sambal Terung, Nasi Dagang, Laksam, Sup, Ikan Keli Bakar, Nasi Kerabu, Kerabu Kaki Ayam, Gulai Ayam Kampung, Gulai Daging, Ayam Percik and Kuih Cek Mek Molek.

a great variety of spicy sauces

We like it when the Nasi Campur counters display in excess of 100 different lauk (dishes)! These range from vegetables, to fish, to various types of meat. The price you pay in the end depends on the amount of different dishes you have on your plate and the type of dishes too – meat and seafood dishes are generally more expensive than vegetables. No Malay rice meal is complete without adding ulam – i.e. raw vegetables to the plate to round up the meal and, and this goes with a lusty dollop of either Sambal Belacan or Tempoyak. The Sambal Belacan at Warung Cherry is spicy, bursting with shrimp paste, flavour with a nice hint of lime juice for added zing, that really spices up your meal nicely. Actually some of the Sambal Belacan on offer is less spicy than the others so you should really ask the kakak (sister) before selecting your poison of choice. You can either have the sambal with your main meats, have it with plain rice or dip your ulam in it. It’s all still fantastically good!

We like the food at Warung Cherry because the ‘lauk’ is cooked with fresh ingredients that the cook bought from the wet markets early in the morning. Some places (like some restaurants in Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur) offer Nasi Campur at night but I am not a fan. I’ve eaten the food at Kampung Baru for supper and sorry to say, the dishes were not up to par. Some of the meats served like the chicken and fish were hard and cold. Not very nice at all.. more like left overs. But for another one of our favourites, a place that serves excellent Malay rice, go here – Malay Rice at D’Anis Putri/ Rozita Catering.

nasi campur .. spicy!

The Nasi Campur at Warung Cherry is very rich and flavorful, and can be damn spicy – just the way we like it. The coconut milk, chilies, various spices, seafood, meats and belacan, that they use here are super fresh and makes these dishes amongst the best Malay dishes we have eaten. You should check it out if you are in the area!
