Tamparuli Nasi Lemak runs by Mohd Ali bin Jainneh but likes to be known as Ustaz Ali was born in Tamparuli, Sabah. He was an imam and a part-time lecturer in UiTM Sarawak. With 7 years of experience in the nasi lemak business, he has gained people’s trust in providing delectable nasi lemak daily.
Ustaz Ali is a co-founder of Tamparuli Nasi Lemak, and his wife is the real founder. If there are complications regarding the business, she, as a founder, will speak up for her opinions to solve the issues. Tamparuli Nasi Lemak was founded 7 years ago and operated in Sarawak for 5 years before moving to Shah Alam 2 years ago since his wife, a teacher, was compelled to switch schools. If you are from Sarawak, you must be familiar with Tamparuli Nasi Lemak.
Despite the drastic changes, Tamparuli Nasi Lemak still runs smoothly and is well-received by both new and returning customers. This stall was known as Nasi Lemak Jambatan Tamparuli (NLJT) but rebranded as Tamparuli Nasi Lemak a few months ago. The hidden reason why the stall has ‘Tamparuli’ is because Ustaz Ali was born in Tamparuli, Sabah. Furthermore, Tamparuli is one of the popular places to be visited in Sabah because of the Jambataan Gantung Tamparuli, which has also become one of Sabah’s trademarks in Sabah tourism. It also has its own folk song in the Kadazandusun language.
Besides, the bridge has been gaining much attention due to its colourful appearance and tall structure. It also has a legendary tale and is still used today as an alternative road for the communities to commute, thanks to its strong structure. Ustaz Ali wished his business would be as popular as the bridge, so he called his nasi lemak business Nasi Lemak Jambatan Tamparuli.
A strategic location is important when it comes to opening a business. Ustaz Ali chose the current business location because of its comfortability and low monthly rental cost. When you open a business, you must consider many things, and risk is one of them. Due to the low rental fee, he does not need to ponder that aspect as much as restaurant owners.
The location is where Ustaz Ali’s father-in-law runs his well-known business, Azmi Goreng Pisang, which was established 28 years ago and is still thriving today. Tamparuli Nasi Lemak operates in the morning, while Azmi Goreng Pisang opens in the evening. So, if you crave nasi lemak and pisang goreng, swing by their stalls for a satisfactory eating experience that you will not forget!
