A special nasi lemak from 1983 – A Taste of Nanyang


This was a stall down at the Cookhouse food court at JEM (50 Gateway Road, #05-01) that sold some local dishes. Such as beef rendang and chicken curry with rice. This was their special nasi lemak which was basically a pre-configured set with their works. It was kinda expensive as nasi lemak went, but these are food court prices and it didn't taste too bad. The fried chicken thigh was crispy on the outside at least and the rice was decent if not exceptionally fragrant. The only real gripe that I had was the sambal which really works only with the fried egg for me because it was far too sweet for my preferences. I was really hoping for that to be more savoury.
