Nasi Lemak Kukus Hot
Nestled in the jungles of Upper Thomson Road is a short strip of eateries. In this strip is Nasi Lemak Kukus, an open kitchen concept, industrial style type of restaurant where you are encouraged to scribble on their walls, and mingle with the staff as if you've known them forever.
They are best known for, of course, their Nasi Lemak Kukus where the rice is cooked by being steamed, instead of being bolied. This rice is free-flow, along with the sambal which comes in two types, spicy and sweet. Their chicken wings are steamed before being fried, and they also serve Vietnamese Drip Coffee. They also offer a healthier version of what we know as Ramly Burger, calling it the Power Burger cooked upon order at a small station at the front of the store.
Nasi Lemak Kukus is open until late, usually catering to those who want to have supper and are craving for local dishes with a difference.

Great place to be with friends!
I've only ever been to this restaurant twice, and I feel like a fool writing a review for a listing I posted myself, but the food and experience at Nasi Lemak Kukus is so good that I don't mind looking like a fool just to share my thoughts.
The first time I tried to have dinner here, It took me and my boyfriend ages to find it. We thought it'd be located at the more known area of Thomson Road, but we were wrong. It's further down along a small strip of restaurants. To me, it's one of the more catchy restaurants in the area. The open store face front is inviting, and there seems to be a lot of people the two times I've been there.
The walls are decorated with doodles of customers, and you are allowed to do that too. The service is great, although you get the dishes on your own. The owner of the store seems to be around all the time, and he's really friendly chatting with all his customers. I think this is what the service industry today lacks, but it's something this restaurant definitely has.
The food is great. I do taste the difference in the rice, fluffy and fragrant. The chicken is quite small, but no worries, the other sides make up for it. Rice is freeflowing! Eat to your heart's content. Drinks are big, so you're sure never to be thirsty. I can't say much about their other food, as I ordered the same thing both times I went there. Yes, it's that good.
Because they are open from 6pm to 3am, this is a place that people with vehicles usually visit. Commuters might have a hard time getting here unless you're willing to spend some bucks on a cab. Overall, It's a great restaurant that I recommend everyone to try!
