Better known to locals as Pokok Cerry, this humble roadside stall is well-known for serving up some of the best nasi lemak around. With all great nasi lemak, it’s the sambal that makes d’Cerry’s worth waking up for! Spicy but not overwhelmingly so and a little on the sweet side, it goes perfectly with the aromatic nasi (rice) cooked with herbs and coconut milk and a crispy piece of freshly fried chicken.
If you’re not feeling quite like a full plate of rice in the morning, you can always choose from a variety of other dishes such as ‘soto ayam’, a spicy chicken soup with noodles or ‘lontong rendang kering’, a dish of fragrant rice cakes, curried beef and vegetables doused in an amazingly rich peanut sauce. Order one of these hearty dishes alongside a hot cup of teh tarik ‘pulled’ the traditional way and your morning will be off to a great start.
Getting here: The stall is located just after the intersection of Jalan Yusof Taha and Jalan Yahya Awal, right at the turnoff into Jalan Inche Besar Zubaidah. Just look for the line of cars parked along the side of the road leading up to the stall, you can’t miss it!
