Ponggol Nasi Lemak : The plate with the fried chicken drumstick

Ponggol Nasi Lemak, drumstick set

This plate from Ponggol Nasi Lemak was satisfying. The combination on the plate simply pushed the right buttons. Toasted peanuts, lightly sugared ikan bilies, sambal that wasn't too sweet, a molten yolk-ed fried egg, chilled slices of cucumber and sufficiently flavoured coconut rice. At about half of what it cost to get a plate at Lemak Boys. Pretty impressed by how they got the crisp on that meaty chicken drumstick while retaining sufficient moisture in the meat that it could almost be called juicy.
