The soya bean nasi lemak truck @ Pusat Bandar Damansara

soya station nasi lemak

One of my coworkers told me (or at least I thought she told me) that there’s a truck that serves nasi lemak cooked with soya bean instead of santan (coconut milk) opposite our office. I trust Lee Fen a lot when it comes to nasi lemak coz of an act of kindness that she did – when I first started working here, she asked me if I would like nasi lemak for breakfast and went down and got a packet for me. *touched

She wouldn’t accept payment either so I somehow associate Lee Fen with nasi lemak. Of all things. Anyway, I had wanted to try the elusive soy bean nasi lemak since she told me about it – the truck comes every day around 12 pm and parks smack dab right in front of Watsons opposite our office during lunch. It’ll be gone by 1 pm or so when they sell out.

It doesn’t have a name, or at least I didn’t see one (except Soya Station), so let’s just call it the soy bean nasi lemak truck. Anyway, I was rushing work today so it was perfect to go down and finally taste this elusive soy bean based nasi lemak. My expectations were high coz it’s such a different way to go about this Malaysian classic. Nasi lemak cooked without santan but with soya bean!

This nasi lemak mobile truck sells out INSANELY fast – you have to be quick since they have a very limited supply of packets. I’m not sure what their business model is since the food is really popular. This woman started grabbing drumsticks when I was taking my order and I glared her.

Wait your turn, woman!

Anyway, it turns out that I either misheard Lee Fen or she was joking coz its regular nasi lemak with santan. However, don’t let that detract from the food. They have fried chicken, rendang chicken and ayam masak merah as add-ons in addition to the regular peanuts, sambal and fried egg which are staples of nasi lemak.

I went for the regular nasi lemak with peanuts, veggies, a fried egg and extra sambal (their sambal is awesome) and added a piece of ayam masak merah (chicken cooked in red sauce) as well as a drumstick from the rendang chicken. It cost me RM 9.

Regular ones would cost RM 5 (with your choice of meat). Their forte is the homemade soya bean drink (RM 1.50) so don’t forget to grab one of those while you’re there as well.

Oh, and one other interesting thing – their soy bean turns into tau fu fah when you leave it for too long. smirk

The nasi lemak is pretty good but I wouldn’t compare it to Village Park nasi lemak. The strength of Soya Station nasi lemak is in their awesome sambal.

  1. Yikes! Very greasy and sinful kind of food! Looks horribly messy and unforgiving! Yikes!
    Psst..I’ve been looking high and low for such kind of food during my recent trip to KL πŸ™
    Oh dear Goddy, please deliver this sinful goodness on my lap right now! LOL! πŸ˜‰
    Tell me your first reaction when you put the first spoonful of this sinful stuff in your mouth. Good?? Fantastic?? I don’t care, I would think it’s YUMMY! Fantastic day to you and I enjoy reading your blog.

  2. I saw that truck so many times, but never occurred to try it. Heh, should have tried it then.
    Btw, first comment, awesome blog.

  3. LeiF: Yeah, where are you working? πŸ™‚
    Yvonne: Thanks Yvonne! πŸ™‚
    I think sinful food is all I eat. I’m not very big on healthy stuff. πŸ˜‰
    High cholestrol, high fat, that’s the way to go. It always tastes better. πŸ™‚
    Victor: Thanks for reading Victor! πŸ™‚
    Yeah me too, I’ve been around for almost a year and this is the FIRST TIME I’ve eaten here. πŸ™‚

  4. Somewhat concerning that the tofu drink curdles. Looks good but nine bucks is a tad exy or is that standard in KL? I haven’t been to Kl for long time.
    What is price of chicken these days?

  5. Magnolia: Well, I’m not too sure about that. Stall operators need a license from the municipal to operate but most of them don’t bother…as for food trucks I think they’ll need one as well, but they’re so mobile that I don’t know if they bother either. πŸ˜‰
    Michelle Chin: Yeah me too!
    Now I wish someone would make one. I can try making it myself, gotta dig up the recipe for nasi lemak and just substitue the coconut milk for soya bean. πŸ™‚
    LeiF: I see! Your office is near where I live. πŸ™‚
    Erica: Nice! I like food trucks, stalls and kiosks coz sometimes they have really good food. πŸ™‚
    rocket: It’s around the price for a sit down meal over here (high density office area) with drinks but the regular ones with one meat costs RM 5. I just went for everything to try it out. πŸ™‚

  6. Wow, gone are the days of $2 kolo mee. I should not complain, I just paid 8.50 for rice and it was crap.
    How is star craft 2 going? Is this an online game where you play against other people on the internet?

  7. I always see similar truck selling soya bean drink & tofu fa but never go buy because I don’t take soya products. LOL!! but this is the first truck selling nasi lemak i’ve seen!

  8. rocket: I paid RM 7.80 for rice and iced Chinese tea just now too. πŸ™‚
    Starcraft II is a great game – amazing storyline, they have a single player mode where you get to know the story and characters and also a multiplayer component, which is tournament grade. πŸ™‚
    annna: Interesting! Why don’t you eat soya products? Allergies or some other reason?
    I’m not a big fan of soya products too but I’ll eat it occasionally.
    Heh! There’s a lot of stalls around here selling nasi lemak but not that many trucks. Trucks are usually the domain of lok lok. πŸ™‚

  9. ahah although it turned out to be the normal santan rice, I could not help but being curious to know what would the rice taste like if it really was cooked in Soy milk. Maybe I can try it out for myself hehe.

  11. Darren: Yeah me too! That was why I went in the first place. I’ve never heard of nasi lemak with soy and I was curious to try it. πŸ™‚
    Yup, we can always cook it ourselves. πŸ™‚
    KY: True, but it would be replaced by the soya taste. At least, I hope. πŸ™‚
    Would love to try cooking it.

  12. hey huai bin i remember that when i was studying in HELP 2 years back there was another nasi lemak stall that comes early in the morning and sells out by 0930am. its at the opposite side of PBD nearer to the imigration office you can easily recognise the stall by their traditional wooden rice pot(even though it looks like a barrel) that stall serves pretty good nasi lemak to kick start your day.
    Regular patrons of the stall would be officers from the goverment students near by and students like me=) try asking for their kerang if u do get down to it.

  13. All your nasi lemak posts just reminded me — I haven’t had nasi lemak or nasi kandar since I left work! Would love to try this soy version though.
    Audrey looks so tiny πŸ˜€

  14. BY: I know that place! πŸ™‚ I come out from there everytime I exit the parking lot. I didn’t know they have good nasi lemak though will try it.
    Thanks for the tip! πŸ™‚
    fish fish: Heh! Well, I figured you can do BOTH! Coconut milk AND also soya bean…but maybe the former will overpower the taste of the latter. :S
    Nicole: Nope, it’s for lunch! πŸ™‚
    I’ve been there at 11 am and it’s not even open. πŸ™
    Elaine: It’s high time we go for another session then! =D
    Your ex place has a great nasi lemak – nasi lemak palembang at the Genting food court. I used to work in an agency in Kenanga International. πŸ™‚

  15. my questionis how does the vendor secure the containers in the back of teh truck? won’t they slide around while he is driving?

  16. sure thing! one more place to take note off is the malay eatery next to rhb bank which is always packed with people during lunch and dinner hours. The service maybe kinda bad but its worth the hassle. The nasi goreng kampung + telur dadar they serve is the bomb! maybe a feature of it one day would be nice? i swear i saw tony fernandes having supper there once! ahh the good times in college =)
