32 Melaka Nasi Lemak at 777 Food Centre in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah, Johor Bahru

 Fried Chicken
  
Nasi Lemak

32 Melaka Nasi Lemak stall at 777 Food Centre in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah always has a queue of customers waiting in line to buy their famous nasi lemak (or, is it their fried chicken?).

32 Melaka Nasi Lemak sells various accompanying side dishes with their nasi lemak such as their popular rendang chicken, but their main draw is their fried chicken.

Fried Chicken

There is something about the chicken, the batter and the way the boss, MR Goh fries his chicken. The huge chunks of chicken were so delicious. The batter was thin yet it was just nicely crispy, and the chicken flesh was still moist and juicy. Not as moist and juicy as boiled or steamed chicken, of course, but it did remind me of them. Interestingly, the chicken was not greasy or oily, even though this was fried chicken.

I couldn't resist indulging in these fried chicken claws. Crunchy and crispy fun at RM1 for 5 pieces :P There are also fried necks and bishop's noses for those who are so inclined :P

MR Goh is always so neatly dressed when frying his chicken.

32 Melaka Nasi Lemak stall takes extra effort to ensure the crispiness of their fried chicken. The fried chicken are displayed in a glass cabinet with sliding glass doors to prevent exposure to draft and chill. Even though there is always a queue and business is brisk, the staff will slide open the cabinet glass door, pick out the pieces of chicken ordered and then closes it after that. So, the chicken is always served hot, crispy outside and tender and moist inside.

I was so absorbed by the fried chicken that I didn't pay too much attention to the rice. Just recalled that it's cooked with turmeric and pandan leaves and it's flavours were slight and the grains were separate and discrete with just the right texture.

The little clump of stir fried cabbage typically served with Chinese style nasi lemak was good too. The sauce was savoury and the cabbage was tasty. I sometimes got cabbage that tasted a little bitter at Chinese nasi lemak stalls but not at 32 Melaka Nasi Lemak.

The sambal looked ordinary but it was nice as it had that anchovy aroma and savouriness which I liked.

Be sure to include 32 Melaka Nasi Lemak's fried chicken when you are having dinner at 777 Food Centre. As for me, I would also like to try their rendang chicken, next time.
