The toppings that customer can choose include the traditional anchovies and peanuts, petai (bitter beans), sambal prawn, sambal squid, tiger prawns, abalone and more!

The catering service is currently available in only Kuala Lumpur, but in a recent post which got over 22 thousand shares – it has been announced that the service will soon be available in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah too.
Based on the comments, the basic nasi lemak cake costs RM58, while a cake with other toppings like sambal prawn, sambal squid, and petai costs RM78.
