Nasi Campur in Kampung Baru (Mixed Rice Curry)

Don’t forget to check out my website by clicking here for lots more street food and travel adventures. Variations of nasi campur are widely eaten throughout southeast Asia and especially in Southern Thailand, Malaysia, and across Indonesia. The dish literally translates to mixed rice, and that’s exactly what it is. The basic procedure when you arrive at a nasi campur restaurant is that you are handed a plate of steamed rice and you then make your way around the buffet line and pile on as many tasty dishes as your plate will hold. Normally the plates are just too small to fit everything you want – at least that’s the case for me!

So anyway, when I travel to Malaysia, I’m always a fan of nasi campur because it’s a good filling meal and it’s insanely delicious. The area of Kampung Baru, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur is an area specifically set aside for local Malays living in the city. There also happens to be a ton of excellent food in the area. Nasi lemak is one of the famous dishes served in Kampung Baru, as is a bunch of restaurants that serve nasi campur. When I saw the amount of dishes ready made to eat at Resoran Lina Sea Food, I simply could not resist the draw to sit down for lunch. And it’s a good thing I did, because it was a fantastic meal. But anyways, I could hardly contain my excitement, and I counted every single dish to discover that they had cooked over 80 different dishes for their nasi campur buffet line. I got my plate of rice and began to browse through all the different Malaysian food curries and other mouthwatering foods. After some bief contemplation, I finally settled on a piece of coconut fish curry, sambal purple eggplant, jackfruit curry, and some kind of green vegetables. Of course, I also scooped on a few spoons of hot shrimp paste chili sauce and soybean tempe. The fish curry was mild and smooth with coconut milk making it rich and flavorful on top of the rice. The jackfruit curry, which I’ve been a big fan of for so long, was excellent too – like starchy potatoes but even better. Finally my favorite nasi campur dish goes to the sambal chili fried egg plant. They were so creamy and cooked to perfection that they almost had the consistency of durian – creamy like butter. The vegetables were also good, especially since they were doused in the house chili sauce. I just can not get enough Malaysian food, and even though nasi campur is a completely ordinary everyday meal in Malaysia, I still find it to be exceptionally wonderful and fulfilling. The different variety of flavors, the chili heat and the rich coconut milk all combines to make the dishes so tasty. The next time you’re in Kuala Lumpu, be sure to wander around the Kampung Baru neighborhood for a delicious nasi campur dining experience!
