Recently after the closure of Kafe 888, the shop lot has been kept empty for few months until Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa Kampung Baru took over. The shop have been re-renovated and just open for business last week. I am a big fan of nasi lemak but I never step my foot at their main outlet which located at Kg Baru KL. Everytime I get turn off by the long que.
I am not sure the history of this nasi lemak but their name is really well known. When people said wanna go for nasi lemak in KL, automatically Kg Baru KL nasi lemak will come in mind. When I arrive there, the restaurant is 50% occupied.

Nice and comfortable environment
I met Kampungboy and City Gal after seated for a while and we ate together. Seriously the service here are terrible. We need to wait for everything at least 20 mins for them to take order, deliver and return my change after paying the bill. In their main branch, everything was self service. Here they will pass you a menu and take down your order. Then they input the order to the computer nearby so that the kitchen can process the order. It take around 15 minutes for them to deliver.
We sit at the back area as the front part were mostly big tables cater for 4 or more pax
