This is all time favorite for most Malaysians. Some says can't live without it especially for the morning breakfast.. Nasi Lemak is widely eaten in Malaysia, even as a dish served in Malaysian schools. Nasi lemak is a common breakfast dish, sold early in the morning at roadside stalls in Malaysia, where it is often sold packed in newspaper, brown paper, or banana leaf. However, there are restaurants which serve it on a plate as noon or evening meals, making it possible for the dish to be eaten all day.

Traditionally, this comes as a platter of food wrapped in banana leaf, with cucumber slices, small dried anchovies (ikan bilis), roasted peanuts, hard boiled egg, and hot spicy sauce (sambal) at its core. As a more substantial meal, nasi lemak can also come with a variety of other garnishing such as chicken, cuttlefish, cockle, stir fried water convolvulus (kangkong), pickled vegetables (achar), beef rendang (beef stewed in coconut milk and spices) or paru (beef lungs). Traditionally most of these garnishing  are spicy in nature.

Price for the packed standard Nasi Lemak priced for RM1.00 per pack. If you eat in the reasonable restaurant, that will cost you around RM2.50 per plate with the simple main ingredient of Ikan Bilis (Anchovies in chillies) and  a slice of hard boiled egg and slices of cucumber.However, if you dine in the medium to high end restaurant, the price will be around RM12 to RM22.00 served with a variety of dishes for example, rending beef, rending chicken , rending mutton) and  lots of side dishes.
