Chawan

It’s the nasi lemak, featuring fluffy coconut rice, and sweet and fiery sambal, that’s the solid favorite here.

The Overview

Old-fashioned kopitiam touches (wooden chairs, ceiling fans) and contemporary elements (exposed beams, metal-topped tables, cement benches) set the scene for Malaysian specialties at Chawan. While the menu roams from south to north with dishes like Johorian mee rebus and Penang-style char koay teow, it’s the nasi lemak, featuring fluffy coconut rice, and sweet and fiery sambal, that’s the solid favorite here. Fresh mango juice or a cup of strong Kemamang coffee from the peninsula’s east coast make a great accompaniment.
