Mark’s Foodie: Capitol Nasi Dagang, Damansara Utama


Over the weekend I had the opportunity to try out Nasi Dagang at Capitol Restaurant in Damansara Uptown together with my in-laws on a Sunday afternoon. Normally I try to avoid the Uptown area thanks to it’s very limited parking area but since it was a Sunday, parking was extremely easy.

Eating here was simple, menus are simple to decipher and easy to choose and of course there isn’t much selection when it comes to food because let’s face it, when you are good at something, focus on that.

I guess I did what every first timer would do and ordered Nasi Dagang. Even choosing Nasi Dagang, I could choose from a mixture of curry chicken, beef rendang and curried squid. I decided with the combination of beef rendang and squid, and boy, did I choose correctly!


When the food arrived (which was very fast), I dug right in and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. The mixture of sambal, curries and rendang was mind blowing and the tenderness of the beef in the rendang was just out of this world. Most of the time whenever I order food, I tried to avoid the beef rendang because most experiences I had was that the beef was overcooked and chewing it would be too taxing.

Honestly, I would definitely return back there again for their beef rendang. Perhaps I should pair it together with the curry chicken instead.

For those of you who are in the PJ area, you should definitely try this place out!


The shop is open from the morning till 5pm in the evening.
