"Remember to Remember"

Nasi Tumpang at The Warung @ Mid Valley

IMG_8755



"Do you know what is Nasi Tumpang?" asked Chris smartly one day, pretty sure I wouldn't know the answer.
"I only know Nasi Kandar & Nasi Lemak" I murmured defeatedly.

He then ushered me towards his Nasi Tumpang 'research'.
I wow-ed ;P

It was from Masak-Masak and SimpleGirl, we got exposed to this Kelantanese delicacy.

Nasi Tumpang is one of Kelantan's local specialties in which the rice is packed in a cone-shaped banana leaf. Traditionally meant for travelers, it is packed tightly consisting an omelette, beef floss, chicken rendang and sweet sambal gravy & cucumbers.

11 layers of goodness for RM9.80; consisting Serunding daging, Ayam Rendang, Sambal Special, Telur & Timun.

I heard their Nasi Lemak Ayam (RM6.90) was something to die for too. This gave another right reason for us to place an order. True somehow, the fried chicken was fragrant and flavoured with spices. And we like the sambal too as we prefer having the sweeter version of sambal gravy. It matches our preference. And as for its coconut based rice, it lacks the fragrance. Nothing to shout about.
Verdict: Not something to die for. Too serious. tapi boleh order-lah.. :)

Flooding MILO??

It's their Milo Warung Special (RM4). Overflowing with milo powder over its brim, this drink actually tasted more than just Milo itself; an-air bandung-like-taste-plus-milo. Overly sweetened, and tasted weird, this wasn't really special.


Warung incorporates an open-spaced dining concept, bringing back an old school sentiment with their zinc-aluminum topped tables and wooden stools.

Love Nasi Tumpang...first encountered them when I went on a food trip in Kota Bahru couple of years back! Bought from the market...of course cheaper but not so canggih looking! 11 layers...fuiyoh!

The nasi tumpang looks so so special ~~

daphne November 6, 2009 at 5:36 PM  

What a pity abt the milo.. that was what caught my attention!

iamthewitch November 6, 2009 at 7:05 PM  

I really like the Nasi with all the lapisan! :) Will definitely try it out :)

Huai Bin November 6, 2009 at 9:10 PM  

Hey layered rice, very novel concept! I don't know what nasi tumpang is either until I read your blog. T_T

Huai Bin November 6, 2009 at 9:13 PM  

Okay, I have a question...it's meant for travellers right? How are you supposed to eat it? From the top down or the bottom up? Coz top down (tapering cone) would produce a mouth of just rice without anything else. Bottom up would make more sense but you end up with a mouthful of plain rice. >.<

Velix~

daphne~
it caught my attention too when I first saw its picture on their menu. I persuaded Chris to order this ;P oops. wrong choice.


iamthewitch~
let me know what you think when u do k! ^^

~Christine~Leng November 6, 2009 at 10:00 PM  

Huai Bin~
haha.. good question.
first of all. we are not really 'travelers' since we'll be eating in MV. So it will be in a bigger pack and, more rice. Secondly, i think traditionally, it was in a smaller pack; one bite of rice and the next bite would be the ingredients ;P Don't think it would be a mouthful.. This is only what i thought. Go Kelantan and see.. ^^ haha.

Simon Seow November 7, 2009 at 4:18 PM  

Oh, I didn't know Mid Valley also got Nasi Tumpang. I first got to know about it when Ho Chiak visited Kelantan Delight in Sentral.

thenomadGourmand November 8, 2009 at 7:56 AM  

yup..hard to find in KL. I think this is the only plc so far.

Katie November 8, 2009 at 1:38 PM  

That Nasi Tumpang looks absolutely delicious and so pretty too! I've always been too scared to try pork floss - does it taste like pork with the texture of fairy floss?

ling239 November 8, 2009 at 10:46 PM  

interesting.....
with so many lapisan i am sure it is very filling...
and i tot in many cafes the milo ais with lots of milo powder topping is called milo dinosour ~ ^_^

~Christine~Leng November 11, 2009 at 8:37 AM  

Simon~
drop by and have a try! :)


thenomadGourmand~
really? But it was first time 'knowing' what is nasi tumpang *runs away and hide* ^^


Katie~
pork floss is yummy! The texture is alright too. But this nasi tumpang is served either with chicken or beef floss. We opted for beef. First time having those beef floss and Chris loved it very much :)


ling239~
milo dinosaur?! nice name... haha. But the milo here not nice la... lol ^^

The food might taste alright but the services is hell poor.
I made an order for a simple 'Roti Bakar' and I waited for 25min and still do not see one.
I spoke to the service chick and she asked me to keep in line when there are only less then 6 ppl already with their food on the table.
I just cannot believe such a poor service.

Miss Messy Mirae March 20, 2011 at 12:13 PM  

wah..nampak sedap nasi tumpang ni..nak pi midvaley la..mintak share gambar ni bole?

i am a frequent patron to the warung in mid valley as I kinda enjoy the food there but what makes me very pissed off today is when one of the staff shouted at us. this staff just marched to us and act like a gangster and shouted at us at our table as if we did not pay for our food. He demand to see our receipt which unfortunately we did not take the receipt from the cashier. this is totally unacceptable as we are totally embarrassed being shouted at in front of so many other customers. We are not going back to this place again, ever, and we will tell whoever we know not to patron to this place anymore. Such poor customer service....
