Yellow Corner Nasi Lemak in Kulai, Johor
William and I were on a whole day Skudai-Kulai food trail since 6:00am in the morning. We were dead tired by the time we arrived to check out the famous Yellow Corner Nasi Lemak in Kulai.
Yellow Corner Nasi Lemak is easy to locate as it is next to a large corner house off Jalan Pinang 1, and you can't miss the bright lights and cars parked by the road side.
Or, you can just ask any Kulai person for directions. Everyone, yes everyone in Kulai, knows Yellow Corner nasi lemak.
Though exhausted, the moment we arrived at Yellow Corner, we felted energized by the humming crowd and buzz. Yellow Corner obviously has the support of the locals going by the huge crowd on a Saturday night.
People of all communities and ages were enjoying nasi lemak and teh tarik (tea) here. It's a very Malaysian makan (eating) place.
We were eager to find out what drew the crowd to Yellow Corner.
I watched what was going on in the kitchen while we waited for our nasi lemak to arrive. The kitchen was a dazzling whirl of activity to churn out the orders as quickly as possible.
It was a very well oiled and efficient assembly line. But, I did wondered, how good can assembly line food be?
Our nasi lemak arrived in about 15 minutes despite the crowd. As we did not specify the chicken part that we wanted, we were given the default fried chicken breast.
I felt a tinge of regret as I am a plump chicken thigh person :P
As it turned out, I needn't fret.
The golden brown fried crispy chicken breast was tender and moist inside with a nice chicken flavour. One of the best fried chicken breasts that I have eaten :D
The coconut flavoured rice was tender and the loose grains separated easily. The rice were of good, long grain quality.
The large dollop of sambal was mildly spicy and had a distinct anchovy flavour which I liked very much.
Besides their famous nasi lemak, Yellow Corner also serves a variety of local favourites.
->> Yellow Corner is indeed a nice place for a simple delicious meal, and a good homely place to chill with family and friends. This is a local Kulai folk favourite.
No wonder then that it is so popular.
