Village Park, Damansara Uptown

What?!? 8:00 am?!?
That was the main grouse when Lyrical Lemongrass suggested to have breakfast at Village Park last saturday. She said Village Park serves nasi dagang in the morning and usually sold out before lunch....
Though I was sorely in need of sleep and was still full from previous night's dinner ( dinner ended about 11 pm), a promise is a promise, so I was there slightly after 8 am..
Saw Lemongrass almost immediately, seated strategically, all happy and bubbly looking; she must be a morning person..hehe..We chatted for a while and precious pea joined us soon after. Not wanting to miss the nasi dagang, we ordered while waiting for the rest to arrive. Kenny mah decided to pop by for a surprise visit, still taking a hiatus from his blog..Wmw and her friend, and boolicious came soon after, while fatboybakes was the last to arrive. Everyone had the nasi dagang, 'cept precious pea who had the nasi lemak. The nasi dagang was served piping hot, with a side of ikan tongkol (local mackerel)and pickled cucumber. The rice was nice and fragrant, slightly sticky (from the glutinous rice, I presumed), tasty indeed. The fish curry however, was slightly diluted.. would have been better if it was creamier and sweeter. Boo asked the waitress on the type of nasi dagang served, they said it was Kelantanese style.
Wmw ordered a side of curry puffs, but I was too stuffed to try that. They said it's rather spicy, nice nonetheless.
Lemongrass and I wanted to try the roti sambal, which arrived only 1 hour later, after 4 reminders... Not sure if it was prepared some time back, or that it turned cold after rounds of photo sessions (by us of course), the toasted bread was rather hard and dry. Not that enticing. Sambal was yummy though..
Guess it was more of a morning of bantering (for most of them, I was the rather shy one, erm, I think..hehe), over the very noisy surroundings and trying to listen to who talking what..Like Kenny said, food bloggers are jolly, happy people, how can I possibly be bored? ;-)
Village Park is located at 5, Jalan SS21/37, Damansara Utama, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Take note though, it can get really crowded on weekends (mornings) and the service you get can be below average.
p/s- Lyrical lemongrass, thanks for all your effort for making this gathering possible! *muaks*

hey, i was being lenient on u guys by saying 8.00am. If I had my way, it'd be 7.00am. *whip* :-P

Seriously tho, I think the great company (thank you guys!) made up for the lack of good service. Waiting one hour for roti sambal is no joke man!

Actually they're known for their Nasi Lemak and Fried Chicken not Nasi Dagang!!!

They have great toast too. That's during non-peak times.

I'm a regular there. I'm addicted to their toast and Teh ais. Yummm. Expensive but what the heck its GREAT food. Thank GOD its a 2 min drive from my house.
