Nasi Tomato Kak Taim, Lorong Melaka

This nasi tomato stall has been there for years, so famous, I'm not sure if I should write about it..
But for the benefit of those who never knew the existence of this little gem, I shall trudge on..hehe
Nasi tomato Kak Taim has made a name for itself for at least a decade; famed for it's delicious rice and lip smacking dishes.
During lunch hours, this stall is packed with patrons, coming from different parts of Klang Valley to take away packs of this tasty morsel. Heck, some big honchos even sent their driver over to pack Kak Taim's nasi tomato. Yes, you read right, Kak Taim is no sit-down-and-eat restaurant, but a take away stall..
My fave from Kak Taim's is obviously the rice; creamy, buttery rice delicately embraced with spices. The rice grains were fluffy and had a wonderful texture.. I'll usually have my nasi tomato with ayam masak merah; beautiful succulent chicken cook for hours in the tasty kuah (sauce). The result? The chicken meat is very well marinated and the meat practically falls off the bones. Have it with a side of acar and more kuah..ooohhh, this is so lovely!
I was told that the other dishes are good too, but I just cant help myself..I need to order the ayam masak merah! hehe..
My rice pack costs me RM4.50, which I will willingly pay for such a delight :)
Nasi Tomato Kak Taim is located at Lorong Melaka. The lorong is next to Wisma Lee Rubber (opposite Masjid Jamek LRT station).
