Nasi Campur Melayu stall is a relatively new food stall in town. This stall started operating about three months ago, right in front of the entrance of Pinang Delicious Food Court on Macalister Road. It is run by siblings Roslina and Rosniza binti Mansor.
In actual fact they had a stall at one of the coffee shop in Island Glades, but decided to move their business down town. Their cooking is different from those around Georgetown as their dishes have a greater Perlis influence.
The chicken rempah with the thick curry gravy is a delight with a plate of plain white rice. Besides that, the fried cincaru with sambal stuffing is worth trying out. The fish is fried with the flesh remaining moist and tender; and the sambal with chucky onions stuffing compliment the fish well.
Beside these two there are other delightful dishes to choose from like the ikan bakar, perut lembu bakar, chicken curry, daging curry (beef), sambal tofu and prawn curry. Some of these razing spicy dishes leave a tinkling sensation in the mouth.
The selection of non-spicy dishes include the Chicken Kurma, well marinated deep-fried pandan chicken, stir-fried cauliflowers, bittergroud, bean sprouts with tofu and anchovies.
You can order your plate of rice with warm chicken or beef soup filled with chunky root vegetables like potatoes and carrots. The aromatic soupy dish boiled with pieces of meat and variety of spices is unique compared to the other stalls around town.
The stall serves three variety of rice – plain white rice, nasi tomato and the fragrant nasi lemak boiled with coconut milk and herbs. Delightful dipping sauce of sambal and ulam which consists of four-angled beans (kacang botol) and cucumber slices is also available.
The stall is open from mid-morning till 5pm and it is closed on Sunday
