Super Shiok Nasi Lemak, Tiong Bahru Food Centre

Super Shiok Nasi Lemak, Tiong Bahru Food Centre

Was introduced to this stall (#02-38 Tiong Bahru Food Centre, 30 Seng Poh Road) recently. No idea how long they've been around but they did Chinese styled nasi lemak. There was definitely coconut flavour going on with their grainy textured rice - which might have been a mixture of jasmine and longer grained basmati. Not outright impressive but very edible. 

Sambal tasted of anchovy and onions. Wasn't too sweet and had a nice flavour. Thought it was not bad but this always puts me in a dilemma because they become dominant flavour when eaten with the rice. Which robs the rice of most of the coconut taste.

Ingredients were so so. Chicken wing had a bit of bite to the meat - did not have the slurp off the bone tenderness which I preferred. Omelette was old school thin which was nostalgic. Didn't like the chicken luncheon meat much and otah wasn't spicy. Not bad a nasi lemak but I wouldn't call it super shiok.
