A popular place for dinner/supper that dishes out a wide selection to feed the young and old. Food is always freshly cooked in batches and replenishes fast. The rice was loose (not clumpy) and light on the coconut. The chicken wing is crispy on the outside and succulent inside but there wasn't much taste to it and their sambal chilli leans more on rather sweet than spicy.

One of the Best fried chicken I ever had, is served here at ponggol nasi lemak. Got consistency, its as good as its main branch at Kovan.

The chilli provided is also good.

To be opened since the 1970s, recipe must be good la, if not how to stay open so long and open branches and franchises, and can remain open is really testament to their craft and recipe.

Landed my hands on a OG Lemak Set when I went to Newton food centre on a weekend evening. Although I was meaning to try their rendang sets, they were unfortunately sold out for the day.

I was absolutely blown away by the sambal belachan. Nasi Lemak is admittedly not my go to meal, but when I eat it, I look out for its fragrance and more importantly, their chilli. OG Lemak serves their Nasi Lemak with two kinds of chilli — sambal Tunis and sambal belachan. The sambal Tunis is the more common chilli you’d get in your Nasi lemak, giving sweeter nodes to your meal. I did however, adore the sambal belachan because of the very well-executed sour and spicy kick it gave.

Because their rice is twice steamed, the result was a soft and lightly textured plain of rice. I did not find it fragrant enough though. Upgrading my chicken to a chicken thigh, the portion was sizably decent. The chicken itself was pretty unique, because it’s unlike the fried chicken wing you’d find at your usual Nasi lemak stalls. The batter was thin and crispy, which makes the whole meal feel slightly less tad oily. Whilst unique, whether or not I’d prefer this over my usual fried chicken wing is a whole new issue. Truth is, I don’t. The chicken was huge but dry, and their take on chicken skin was not enticing enough to win me over. Let’s be real, the higher price point doesn’t make this very attractive either, especially when you can get much cheaper and more fragrant options out there.

Signature taliwang set @ $6.20

The chicken was really tasty, super soft and juicy and there's a nice grilled taste to it as well. Goes super well with the chilli sauce which leaves my stomach churning for a bit which I don't mind as I enjoy the spiciness of it.

Extra chilli is given for the rice which is on the bland side, almost no coconut taste at all.

A bit expensive in my opinion cuz other than the chicken the rest of the ingredients (egg, ikan bilis peanuts, cucumbers) are super basic. Also noticed from the previous posts that the price has significantly increased over the past two years.

But I'll still go back to try other flavours and then see how after that.

On the first day of the new year we had lunch at Rempapa. I was determined after walking pass the establishment en route the office alternate days, for I spied celebrity chef Damian mending to operational details almost daily, “thats hands on” I thought.
The service here is great, and the staff are well versed with the menu. If you question why you should pay $17 for nasi lemak, think again because the ingredients used are higher quality and the rice tasted quite novel with a nice refreshing hint of ginger while being “lemak” enough.

Of course my favourite thing out of everything we had was the assorted kueh platter. We had 2 each of the permanent 6 kuehs on the menu and I was delighted to find 3 off the menu kuehs specials with alluring Bandung rose, and yam colors. Trust me you do not want to leave rempapa without trying these precious delightful pieces of sweet Asian delicacies, I can attest to having one of the finest kueh kosui I can remember. Also the Ang Ku kueh here is interestingly pan fried reminding me of Nian Gao.

I cannot wait to revisit for dinner, maybe on Tuesdays where corkage fee is waived.

Ordered Nasi lemak with har cheong gai wings and lu rou fan. Food was affordable and really good!!

From Ah Lemak
Deep fried crispy signature chicken wings.
Definitely fluffy rice, fried egg over it.
Crunchy peanuts and matching spicy chilli sauce.
$5.50 not bad.
👍

This is a very wholesome meal. I always find comfort in Mui Kee frog legs porridge. Although Mui kee is famous for its parrot fish porridge, the frog legs porridge is also pretty well done.

Love this nasi lemak! Would definitely return again to try other nasi lemak options here. The chicken was big, the meat was tender and flavourful. A little spicy, sweet and taste like coconut milk. The egg was a little runny inside - like ramen egg - yums! The achar complements the dish well, its sour and spicy taste balances the coconut milk sauce. The ikan bilis and peanut was nice and crispy too!

Fangko is known for its rice dishes, but their secret gem is this fried chicken burger. Biting down brings a phenomenal crunch from that juicy slab of chicken, while the sauce adds another layer of decadence. A must order if you’re here!
