Nasi Lemak Korner Como, 18 Preston Street, Como WA 6152, Phone 9367 9925.
Upmarket Malaysian … There have been a lot of reviews of Nasi Lemak Korner recently and the photos certainly inspired me to visit. There is a huge buzz about this venue, so off we went to investigate.
We went at lunch time and it wasn’t busy but had only been open a few weeks. Staff greeted us with a friendly smile and asked us to sit anywhere we’d like. We soon had the menus and water.
The café has a funky vibe, and a nice decor. There are folding doors that bring the outdoors into the cafe. The outlook is quite a pleasant view of Preston Street and NLK’s sister Bar next door, Hangout on 20 Preston. Drinks are available from the Bar.
The menu had so many things we wanted to eat but we had to go with the Café’s namesake. So, opting for the Nasi Lemak with Ayam (Chicken) Curry in a spicy Sambal Sauce.
Prawn and Chive Fritters made with chickpea batter and accompanied by a sweet chilli sauce. Xena liked this dish a lot and it was a generous serving and price wise great value.
The last dish was Ayam (Chicken) Satay and it came with a really simple but very tasty peanut sauce. It was nice to see that there was a very generous serving of sauce. Because, at some places you can barely see the sauce.
So, the food was delicious and good value for money. The decor and atmosphere were lovely. Nasi Lemak Korner seems to have it all.
