The Nasi Lemak set ($6.50) comes with 1 meat, 1 vegetable and 1 egg of your choice. The coconut rice is fluffy and fragrant, the chilli is just the right amount of sweet and spicy and the fried ikan bilis and peanuts have a nice crunch. The chicken wings are not the best I’ve had - I prefer one with a crunchier exterior and with the drumlet intact. Having said that, the meat is juicy and tender. The other items such as white cabbage and sambal brinjal are quite good. There are also 4 types of egg to choose from: sunny side up, omelette, sambal egg and sous vide egg.

Want to chill at a cafe? Want to still eat local cuisines? This is the place where you get nice nasi lemak, french toast and many more. We ordered a nasi lemak set, french toast set and curry chicken set which cost a total of SGD23.50.

Prefer the Laksa to the nasi lemak.Very nicely seasoned.Some might not like it as it is without the cockles but I don’t really eat cockles so it was to my liking.

Must add the otah as it is not fishy and a nice complement to the nasi lemak.The anchovies were very crispy and fragrant.Just that the vegetables were a little cold and the rice could be more fragrant.Overall worth a try if you are near Tiong Bahru.A little expensive though as it cost around $8

Maybe a little too early for dessert at 10am, but how to resist especially with the chendol photos around the cafe? We opted for the durian chendol, which came with a generous dollop of durian purée on top.

The durian purée was thick and creamy, and provided a lovely bittersweet contrast with the shaved ice, gula melaka syrup and chendol bits. The ice isn’t as fine as bingsu, but it’s finer and more even than what you’d usually get at a kopitiam or coffee shop. Hidden under the mound of ice were two attap chee and some kidney beans in coconut milk. Very very enjoyable dessert overall, and I would recommend going for the durian chendol over the regular as the durian really elevated my enjoyment of this dessert!

When ordering Cafe Pandan’s nasi Lemak, you get a choice of eggs: omelette or sunny side up, and vegetables available at their heated display.

We had both the chicken cutlet and fried chicken wing nasi Lemak sets at our table with the long beans, one sunny side up and one omelette. I preferred the chicken cutlet over the fried chicken, and the omelette over the sunny side up, but both were good options! I love how tender both chicken options were, the batter was crisp and not too thick. Choose the cutlet if you’re lazy like me 😂 the rice was fragrant enough, but not particularly outstanding. As for the sambal, it was well-balanced, slightly sweet and not very spicy - so everyone can enjoy it.

I’d rate this as above average nasi lemak. It’s not the best in Singapore, but they don’t claim to specialise in any dish in particular, and the main draw of Cafe Pandan is their variety of delicious local dishes and comfortable interior. Definitely a nice place to consider if you’re looking for local food in a cafe setting instead of a hawker center or coffee shop.
