Nasi Lemak @ Gerai Haji Din, Tanjung Malim - Perak

Located: Hawker centre in front of the Balai Polis, Tanjung Malim town centre

My first trip to TM (Tanjung Malim), and it was a brilliant day out :-) First stop? The popular local nasi lemak venue, Gerai Haji Din.


Old school nasi lemak the way I like it, sambal that is sweet-ish, simple lightly coconut-infused rice which is perfectly cooked, small helping of cucumber and beans ... Magnificent!
L grew up eating the original / dad of the current operator's nasi lemak, and swears by it ... I now know why!
ps - Even beats Shah Alam's famed Restoran Gembira in Section 3

TM is only an hour's drive from KL, and I do hope I draw some traffic to this lovely little town which has so much to offer. The food, the hills, the river, and of course the people!

I am hooked on the NL and Ckn-chop, and I hope one day to shoot/take photos of kids who play on that b-ball court!

Thank you once again for visiting my little blog, your comments are very kind and shall keep me blogging with a big smile!
