At the same hawker centre as the Chai Chee Minced Meat Noodles is this nasi lemak stall with a long, snaking queue. No way I'm gonna join that, I said to myself. But curiosity got the better of me, and I vaguely remembered an old news article about it. Besides, the nasi lemak looked rather tempting on the plates of those eating around the stall.
My S$2 takeaway here got me a lot more protein than the bak chor mee. You can choose three items including one chicken wing (in fact, if you don't choose the chicken wing, they charge you even less). The otah is really soft and smooth - I could not tell it was chicken and not fish. The rice was a light version of what REAL nasi lemak rice ought to be. The stall owner only uses coconut milk sparingly, for a healthier dish (but hey all the other deep-fried stuff doesn't look that healthy). The sambal chili - the other critical aspect of nasi lemak - is all right, a bit on the sweetish side. On the whole, probably a good value meal, but it's best to eat this dish there piping hot, and not do a takeaway like I did.
