We went for the Nasi Lemak Royale and the classic Nasi Lemak Chicken Wing. As the name suggests, Nasi Lemak Royale is fit for a king. It has everything, and we mean everything - chicken wing, fish fillet, begerdil (spiced potato patty), egg, fried anchovies, peanuts, cucumber slices, and sambal chilli. The Nasi Lemak Chicken Wing, on the other hand, is a solid rendition of the classic Nasi Lemak. We added fish otah, as well as our favourite Bandung drink, to go along with our meal.

The rice portions were simply perfect - not too much, not too little. The fragrant coconut rice was cooked to perfection, just the way we like it – soft and moist. The aromatic rice complemented well with the amazing sambal, and the saltiness of the fried anchovies and peanuts provided a great balance between the sweet, spicy, and salty notes. I’ve got a thing when it comes to fried chicken - it needs to be juicy on the inside, and crunchy on the outside, and Crave’s chicken wing fits the bill perfectly. All of this goodness came nicely packed in a unique banana leaf-styled packaging.
Hats off to Crave for an excellent rendition of Nasi Lemak!
Set meal with a drink starts from $8.90 onwards.
