Damansara Restaurants: A Must-Visit for 2022!

Damansara Restaurants

Damansara is a township located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It is a central commercial hub in Petaling Jaya, made of several different areas and houses multiple affluent residential areas. Therefore, it is almost impossible to list down all the Damansara restaurants found here. Nevertheless, we have done our best, and we are excited to present you with a list of must-try food here.

With that said, here are some of the must-go places in Damansara for mouth-watering food.

1. Village Park Restaurant

If you’ve been in Kuala Lumpur long enough, you must have heard about Village Park. This shop is a Nasi Lemak powerhouse in Damansara Utama. The Nasi Lemak is so good on its own, with its coconut milk rice accompanied by sambal, anchovies, egg and cucumber.

However, you will see most, if not all, of the customers having the Nasi Lemak with a side of rendang ayam or ayam goreng (fried chicken). We recommend you to add-on a chicken to your Nasi Lemak too for the full Village Park experience.
