Every year, one week before raya Malaysians go into a lemang frenzy and join the crazy queue at their favourite lemang stall to rekindle back the once in a year friendship with their favourite lemang seller. Except this year. Where have the sellers gone?
” Here’s your one-stop list of lemang sellers in Klang Valley “
Well, we have good news. Braving hungry tummies during the fasting month, the FriedChillies team spent weeks tracing down as many sellers as we can… and listed them down here just for you. Here are 5 of our community favourites and more, out fresh from the current PKP.
1. Lemang Warisan Emma, Ampang – Safri currently captains the ship at LWE. A second generation lemang seller with expertise passed down from her mom (Emma) with 20 over years of experience. Their lemangs are expertly done the traditional bakar lemang way. Besides their lemang biasa, their speciality is lemang pulut hitam. A hit with regulars. We recommend the Rendang Ayam. Generous at RM10/pack. Lemangs start at RM15.
Whatsapp Safri at 018- 9773615; or you can make payment via DuitNow to Safri 010-3687719
2. Lemang Osman Misai, Subang Jaya – We don’t know who this newcomer Osman Misai guy is except that his lemangs are definitely tasty and is starting to get a good buzz on social media. Wak Osman’s lemang has a nice lemak flavor with a soft lemang texture. Rendang is good. A bit pricey (Subang Jaya prices) but definitely worth the money. RM20 for Lemang/ RM16 for Rendang.

3. Lemang Si Merah, Bangi – Perfected by the catering guys at MZ Cafe, their lemang whilst not the bakar type, packs great flavour. A special secret machine is used to make these lovely lemangs that gives a good balance, softness to the lemang and the infused flavours of daun pisang are present. Their tasty rendang is packed in a retort pouch so that it keeps longer and more convenient. Lemang prices start from RM10.50 only. Rendangs RM12.

4. Lemang Power, Bandar Tasik Permaisuri – Ajib is a local hero amongst lemang fans in his community. PKP badly affected his lemang business, he had no way to bakar his lemang and so, pivoted into a gas chamber technique that produced just stunning results. Tasted better than his regular bakar versions! Many lemangs had to be sacrificed before he managed reached the perfection of this scale but they definitely got our vote. Rendangs are fairly priced and tasty. RM13 for Lemang + RM7 for Rendang.
Whatsapp to order and make payment via DuitNow to Ajib at 019- 3133425
5. Lemang Tok Megat, Puchong – This year, Megat gave his fans a real “tak berniaga” scare. And then, several days ago, a single post appeared on their Facebook that they are starting on the 18th May and their orders have been coming in like crazy from then on. Their mid-size lemangs are best… good infused flavours and wood-fired the traditional way. Don’t forget their rendang too. RM13 for Lemang + RM7 for Rendang.
