Known to many for their signature Nasi Lemak, Nelli’s Deli recently moved to a new location right in the heart of the tourist spot in Ipoh, Kong Heng Square, to cater to the needs of foodies.
The cafe, which was first established at Jalan Raja Ekram in 2011, served an array of local dishes including their famous Mee Rebus (RM10),
“Customers can now also try our new wide selection of western food such as English Breakfast Set (RM12), Aglio Olio Seafood Spaghetti (RM20), Seafood Platter (RM28), Fish & Chips (RM18) and others,” said Oriza Nelli Ahmad Hatta, the owner of Nelli’s Deli.
The cafe, named after their names, is also owned by Oriza’s sibling; Ardina Nelli and Farina Nelli. The trio who had no experience in the F&B industry, decided to leave their jobs and open up their dream cafe.
“In 2013, we moved to Greentown Business Centre and two years later we were at Sunway City Ipoh. We’ve been receiving a lot of warm support from our customers and we’ll definitely work hard to serve them better,” added Oriza.
Customers who visit Nelli’s Deli must try their Nasi Ulam with Fried Chicken (RM15) where a bowl of white rice is served with fresh ulam (local herbs), bean sprouts, salted egg, spicy sambal and crispy fried chicken. Visitor can also change their fried chicken for Percik (Marinated) Chicken for an additional RM2 (Nasi Ulam with Percik Chicken, RM17). Nelli’s Deli Nasi Lemak Full Plate comes with fried chicken, calamari sambal and prawn sambal priced at RM20. Customers can also opt for either one of the main side dishes to go with their Nasi Lemak for RM13 to RM15 per plate.
Oriza also highlighted that their Prawn Cucur and Anchovies Cucur (fritters) priced at RM7 each are among the items loved by customers. The cafe also serves delicious desserts such as Churros with Chocolate Sauce (RM14), Brownies (RM8, add RM6 for ice cream) and French Toast with Ice Cream & Berries (RM19).
The cafe is located at 99, Jalan Sultan Yusuf next to Burps & Giggles. Customers can also pre-order cakes from the cafe for birthdays, anniversary and more.
