This local spot is tucked in one of the folksy shophouses in the Masjid Jamek area; Lekiu Cafe’s interior is similarly simplistic, as well as a compact lunch menu that’s suited for a quick lunch break. The Iced Coffee here was rich and had a slight hint of Milo, whereas the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (MYR10.90) was perfectly executed — a whole chicken leg with a thin, crispy coating that retains a juicy and fleshy texture on the inside, the coconut rice was just right in fragrance and the sambal was tasty and spicy with a notable kick. While the roti bakar peanut butter (MYR4) did seem intriguing at first, it turned out to be just a pressed toast filled with regular peanut butter. Aside from the fact that it’s doused with an odd amount of lettuce, the Kuey Teow Goreng (MYR7.50) here had a satisfying flavor and a good touch of ‘wok hei’.
