Nasi Lemak is definitely one of the must-try hawker food in Singapore. Like what I’ve mentioned previously, there are a few nasi lemak stalls in Singapore that have platinum status (and perpetually long queues): the famous Changi Village Nasi Lemak, the two rivaling Adam road Nasi Lemak stalls, Fong Seng Nasi Lemak, Chong Pang Nasi Lemak, the popular Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak, and of course Punngol Nasi Lemak.
All of us know that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While I usually don’t have a heavy meal in the morning, but on days when I feel like indulging, a plate of good nasi lemak can last me all the way till tea time.
When it comes to Nasi Lemak, it is all about the chicken wings, coconut rice, and chilli. While this may not be the healthiest plate of food, it is definitely one of the tastiest. Grab the chicken wing by the tip, and eat it together with the mixture of the fragrant coconut rice and fiery hot sambal chilli – the combination of coconut, spices, and greasy fried food is surely one of life’s precious moment.
It’s true when they say that the East of Singapore is a foodie paradise. Where else in Singapore can you see a whole stretch of restaurants and eateries? Starting from Tanjong Katong to East Coast road, and Siglap, the whole East Coast area has food and more food.
Punggol Nasi Lemak at Tanjong Katong outlet is located directly opposite With A Pinch of Salt Cafe, and there was a short queue forming when we were there at 5.30pm.
Punggol Nasi Lemak is good but not great. I don’t think it’s the best Nasi Lemak in Singapore, but I won’t mind having it if I’m in the area and there’s no long queue. It’s a ideal late night supper place in Singapore for the night-owls, and I must say, the idea of having nasi lemak in the middle of the night is very appealing.
What do you usually eat for supper?
