Known to all as Bangsudu, he explained that the nasi lemak is cooked by his parents on a daily basis. He then opens his stall at 6.30am and it sells out in less than an hour. For those of you wondering how is it possible for Bangsudu to earn a profit when the nasi lemak is priced at just RM1, he shared that he doesn’t earn a lot. Despite many comments online telling him to hike the price up, he plans to keep it at RM1.
