In conjunction with the month of Merdeka, Bowery Petit has introduced the Nasi Lemak Burger, also known as the NLB. Each burger comes with a juicy piece of chicken thigh coated in an aromatic coconut milk-laced batter and fried to golden perfection. It is paired with a sweet-spicy sambal sauce and topped off with a telur mata kerbau, ikan bilis and kacang. This is served between a pair of homemade butter brioche buns and a serving of fries.

Define:Food’s take on the Nasi Lemak Burger was in fact inspired by the OG nasi lemak auntie who sells her nasi lemak by the roadside. Their version consists of the basics like an Ayam Goreng Berempah, a creamy sambal sauce, cucumber slices with Telur Mata Kerbau on top and Kacang and Ikan Bilis on the side. The dish is even served on top of a classic green banana leaf.
