The idea of using basmati rice for nasi lemak is not new. Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak at Adam Road Food Centre had built its reputation upon it and even managed to win the patronage of the Sultan of Brunei! What is surprising is that aren't more nasi lemak stalls capitalising on Selera Rasa's idea after so many years.
The Coconut Club: Nasi Lemak, Cendol, Otah and other Coconut dishes!
You would be forgiven if you thought that The Coconut Club was some sort of beach bar serving piña coladas, but nooooo..., the reason it's called "The Coconut Club" is far more prosaic. They called it "The Coconut Club" simply because the owners were nuts over coconuts!
Nasi lemak has got to be one of my top ten best breakfast idea of all time! It might seem like a simple dish of coconut rice, chilli, fried egg and ikan bilis, but a mouthful of fragrant rice mixed with the sweet chilli and a few slivers of ikan bilis is as tasty as any Michelin Star meal in my books!
Yi Liu Xiang Nasi Lemak – Simple and Satisfying Nasi Lemak for $2.50!
In this day and age, it is hard to find something for less than $3 at the hawker centre and still hope that it is made with passion and quality ingredients. But here it is. The Nasi Lemak at Lor Ah Soo Market must be the holy grail of the economic-gastro pilgrim seeking the sacred chalice […]
International Nasi Lemak: Alamak, which Nasi Lemak!
If you have been to the newly renovated Changi Village Food Centre, you would be lost. It would seem that all the stalls have just played musical chairs and have relocated to another place even though the layout of the hawker centre seems to be much the same! I am not sure what the rationale […]
Nasi Lemak Kukus: Traditional Steamed Rice and Homemade Burgers!
If you are wondering what the future of Nasi Lemak looks like, then head towards Upper Thomson and you might just catch a glimpse of its evolutionary path in Singapore. I don’t know why it has taken so long for someone to do this, but eating Nasi Lemak in a laid back place with customer’s […]
Chong Pang Nasi Lemak hardly needs any introduction. Together with Ponggol Nasi Lemak, they are both probably the most well known Nasi Lemak brands in Singapore. Both actually started out making those pre-packed banana leaf wrapped Nasi Lemak but expanded to serve Nasi Lemak Ala-carte. In those good old days (they have been around for […]
Ponggol Nasi Lemak Centre: There is a good reason why there is always a long queue!
Ah Nasi Lemak. Just the mere mention of it makes you want to eat some right? I remember the very first time I started to like Nasi Lemak. It was during a Scout camp and we were served packets of Nasi Lemak which were wrapped in banana leaves for breakfast. Up till then, I hadn’t […]
Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak: Power to draw the Crowds!
If you live all the way in the West and are looking for a plate of Nasi Lemak late at night, then you would probably head for Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak. At least that would explain why there seems to be a perpetual queue of 20 people lining up for the Nasi Lemak. We […]
Fong Seng Nasi Lemak: Haven for hungry Uni Students!
This stall is closed. Which NUS Alumni hasn’t been to Fong Seng Nasi Lemak. Some places just have the best location. I am not a NUS Alumni, but I can imagine the scenario. You live in the Hostel and have been mugging for an exam. Suddenly you feel your tummy rumbling. You look up and […]
Epok Epok Central: Epok Epok, Neneks and Hawker Hunks!
With smart and Mr.YaKwang Epok Epok with egg 50 cents each The most surprising thing about this Epok Epok is NOT that it is one of the most addictive things I have eaten recently, but the fact that the hands that make them belong to an exclusive breed of Hawkers whom I have created a […]
Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak: At Last! A Nasi Lemak with Good Rice!
At last!!! A Nasi Lemak that is really shiok! This Nasi Lemak is so Shiok that I was told the Sultan of Brunei Tar Paus it back to the Embassy when he comes to visit Singapore! (Why doesn’t he just buy over the stall and set it up at the embassy? He got Michael Jackson […]
