Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak

Nasi lemak is rice cooked in coconut milk with pandan leaves. It is a Malay dish, sold at hawker centres and food courts with various items, such as sambal, dried anchovies, a fried egg and cucumber. You can also add meat, such as a chicken wing, fried fish, or otak-otak, which is bbq steamedĀ fish paste with tapioca, cooked in banana leaf.

Nasi lemak is another dish that can be found just about anywhere in Singapore, but there are several famous stalls, and there are two big rivalries at two separate food centres. At Adam’s Road, both No. 1 Adam’s Nasi Lemak and Selera Rasa claim to be the number 1 stall. Both stalls have their fans, including the Sultan of Brunei. I think a look at the menus on the signboards will give a big clue as to which stall he favors.

On the other side of the island, at Changi Village, Mizzy’s Corner and International Muslim Food both have great reputations for their nasi lemak. The beautiful plate of food below is from International Muslim Food and you can see the otak-otak on top. We visit Changi Village whenever we head out to Pulau Ubin and Chek Jawa.
