Nasi Goreng with Ayam Goreng

$5.50 · 9 Reviews

Fried rice and chicken leg, which is their signature. The portion is generous and it comes with inhouse chilli souce on the side, which brings the dish to next level. The skin of the chicken is thin and crispy which is to my liking, however the chicken is not as flavourful as the fried rice. I need to dip into the chilli source.

Situated just around the corner from Haji Lane is a no-frills lunch option. Grab your colleagues and come by for their Nasi Goreng Ayam ($6) that sees well-fried rice served alongside a large piece of crispy deep fried chicken. Burppler Veronica Phua recommends rotating between the three chilli options — a spicy, tangy “chicken rice chilli sauce”, a savoury belachan-based one and a pickled sliced green chilli option. If you're a fan of sambal belachan, go for their fragrant Nasi Goreng Kampong ($5.50).

Paid a visit to the halal eatery that I use to lunch at pretty often when I worked in the area. Choosing their Nasi Goreng Ayam was a no-brainer as it was my standard order then.
It’s good to know nothing has changed. The rice is still well fried without being too oily. Which does slightly alleviate the guilt of having it with a large piece of crispy deepfried chicken. They still offer not one but three kinds of chilli to enjoy with the dish too. There’s a spicy, tangy “chicken rice chilli sauce”, another that’s savoury because it’s belachan-based, and last but not least, pickled sliced green chillies that’s almost fruity. Since all of them work for me. I just rotate amongst the three with each mouthful.

Haha esp since it is served piping hot. #burpple

You might need ear plugs because the fried chicken is covered in a batter with the most resounding crunch! Douse it in their house-made garlicky chilli sauce for maximum yumminess. Although the fried rice can be a little clumpy in parts (probably from being slightly damp during the frying), its tastiness level still ranks pretty high to me. Super "shiok" when eaten with the pickled green chillies.

This little eatery commands a queue during lunchtime because people love it for the lip-smackingly good rice and noodle dishes that are cooked only upon order. Top of my list is their Nasi Goreng Kampong which is a spicy fried rice that has every grain of rice infused with the aroma of "sambal belachan". Stirred into the mix are a few strands of green veg (but that's fine because getting your fibre fix isn't why you eat this dish anyway). Topping it off are copious amounts of tiny crispy anchovies and "keropok" plus a fried egg. If you ask me, that's $5 well spent.
