In Singapore, Nasi Lemak is a staple breakfast dish that is beloved by all. Almost every single food spot here in Singapore sells a version of Nasi Lemak. At Nasi Lemak Specialist, they serve one of the best possible versions of it. They have several unique ingredients that separate them from other Nasi Lemak dishes that your basic Nasi Lemak may not have. Let’s take a look at this hidden gem!
Outstanding Nasi Lemak At Tampines Round Market
Nasi Lemak Specialist has been open since 2017. They have survived the pandemic and continue to thrive where many have not. What is their secret? Their food of course. Madam Mazwin does not compromise quality for anything and every dish that goes out, goes out perfect. They prepare their food as early as 5am. This attention to detail sets them apart from other Nasi Lemak establishments.
It all starts with the rice. Traditionally, Nasi Lemak is made with Jasmine or Thai Rice- perfect for absorbing the coconut flavour. However, they tend to get mushy if not cooled down. At Nasi Lemak Specialist, they use basmati rice which doesn’t absorb the coconut flavour as well, but the grains aren’t as mushy when hot. That way, you can enjoy their Nasi Lemak fresh out of the cooker without the worry of wet rice.
Scrumptious Malay Food
Their Nasi Lemak Set B ($4.00) is their most ordered version of Nasi Lemak on their menu. Although it is basic, it has all the necessary components of a good Nasi Lemak. Turmeric is a key ingredient that gives the Chicken its golden colour. The chicken itself is juicy, their homemade sambal is sweet and spicy- altogether it makes an amazing breakfast for anyone.
Another famous dish that they are known for, is their Mee Rebus ($3.50). The Mee Rebus features a rich and sweet gravy that is topped with fried shallots, croutons and green chilli. This dish is simple and delicious. If you are looking for a change, the Mee Rebus is a must-have.
