Pandan Leaf Nasi Lemak, Tanjong Pagar Food Centre

Pandan Leaf Nasi Lemak, Tanjong Pagar Food Centre

I tried to get nasi lemak from this stall (#02-25, 6 Tanjong Pagar Plaza) a couple of times over the past years but have never managed to because they open early and close when they're sold out for the day. Which can be quite early. Was surprised to see them still open recently while looking for lunch.

I liked it. Nice coconut flavour from the rice and the sambal had the flavour of ikan bilis. What stood out the most for me was the fried chicken drumstick. It's batter-less chicken like those from Ikea and had a savoury sweetness to the marinade which reminded me of fried chicken from my school canteen as a kid. Or a less salty version of the fried chicken from Babas Peranakan. I think I like this better than Makan Sutera Nasi Lemak Pandan Rice just around the corner.
