On a recent visit, I tried their signature dish – Nasi Keladi bersama daging semur. This flavorful ensemble features a delightful combination of purple rice, locally known as nasi keladi, paired with tender chunks of daging semur, a classic Javanese beef stew.

As my plate arrived, I was “greet” by the color and  aromas of this signature dish. I couldn’t wait to dig in. The purple rice, a rarity in many Malaysian eateries. It added a unique touch to the meal, its subtle nuttiness complementing the robust flavors of the semur perfectly.

Accompanying the rice and daging semur, there’s this refreshing serving of sayur kerabu, a traditional Javanese salad. The combination of shredded vegetables, herbs, and spices provided a delightful contrast to the hearty main dish.

No Javanese meal is complete without the fiery kick of sambal, and Sambal Lalapan certainly delivers on that front. Their sambal, added a tantalizing heat to each bite, elevating the dining experience. 

To round off the meal, I opted for the add-on tempeh, a beloved Indonesian staple made from fermented soybeans. The crispy exterior and nutty flavor of the tempeh provided a satisfying contrast to the tender beef and fluffy rice.
