Nam Heong

Previously we just get takeaways from Nam Heong. This time we dined in after waiting for about 15 minutes for seats.

Saw this new item on the menu - nasi lemak (coconut milk rice) with pork curry so ordered it - MYR15.90 nett. I like the fully cooked crispy-at-the-edge egg. The pork curry is cooked with pork belly so the fats are layered in between lean meat.

Top view - fried egg, peanuts, anchovies, cucumber, luncheon meat, pork curry, squid sambal, long beans with rice. Taste good but then someone chided me for eating nasi lemak since it is not a specialty dish of Nam Heong in Ipoh.

We just enter the orders ourselves through the tablet in the photo above. White coffee (hot) at MYR4.4 nett and just one egg tart at MYR3.20 nett. 

The many thin layers of pastry crust is very crispy and as we ate it while it is still hot/warm, the pastry crust tastes like cream crackers which we like. The egg custard-like-filling is soft, warm and melt in our mouths. Worth to eat this.

Prawn siew mai (dumpings) at MYR6.50 nett. I am not sure whether there are 3 or 4 pieces since we may have eaten one piece leaving 3 pieces behind. I suspect the prawn fillings are mixed with pork meat to firm it up. Taste is acceptable.

Bill for 2 is MYR30 nett since we did not order much as we plan to eat at other places.

  1. Then you need to go back and try the specialty items. :)

    I have passed by few times but we were always on the way to Village Park, with Malay colleagues in our group.

  3. I like to have nasi lemak with pork curry. The pork curry must be good with that extra fat.

    Egg tart for dessert sounds good too. Not too flaky for me but filling must be creamy and nice.

  6. Lucky you! I went there a number of times and never got a table in 15 minutes. It was always 30 minutes to 45 minutes but we still waited patiently. I love the comfy ambiance inside for long chat while sipping the coffee with egg tarts. Again, the egg tarts were often sold out too. I like the roasted pork belly the gmost.
