This is my first visit to The Coconut Club after they have shifted to their current location, and it’s good to know that their signature Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng Berempah ($12.80) is still as good as ever! The chicken thigh is tender and flavourful, the coconut rice is fragrant and the sambal is quite spicy! Had to queue 25min during weekday lunch but thankfully it did not disappoint:)

Honestly not a fan of the much raved nasi lemak dish here. I felt that the chicken lacked flavour. It could be more flavourful. Ordered the breast meat which is my usual part of a chicken. The rice could also be more fragrant with more lemak and pandan flavour but it lack of that.

Queues move fairly quickly here, and very soon you'll find yourself seated, with a generously-portioned plate of Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng Berempah ($12.80). The crispy and juicy chicken thigh is the star of the show, featuring runny sunny side up and fragrant coconutty rice as excellent supporting cast members. Pair that with the sweet but kicky sambal and you're golden. End the meal with their delish Cendol ($3.80) that sees finely shaved ice topped with freshly squeezed coconut milk, homemade pandan rice flour jelly and just enough gula melaka to balance out the milkiness.

When I first heard of the price, I was floored. $12 for nasi lemak?! But boy, was it worth it.

We were offered the choice of chicken breast or thigh, and I chose the former. The portions were huge. The cucumbers were refreshing, the rice was fragrant and “lemak”, the sambal was slightly sweet (but packed a punch!) and the egg yolk was perfectly runny. Along with these amazing sides came the star of the dish, the chicken — and it was tender, oily and savory.

It’s one of those dishes where I could only tell you to try it to believe it.

You know why it pisses me off? Because some random $4 nasi lemak with sambal from a factory, fried frozen stuff and coconut milk from a can is not nasi lemak. Enough of my rant...here are three glorious dishes the team is testing: sambal goreng, sambal bendi and kari ayam ketumbar. Ok, that's all.

Nonetheless, the food still tastes amazing and dare I might say, the nasi lemak here can be considered one of the best in Singapore. Their basic nasi lemak set ($12.80) comes with steamed coconut rice, a huge portion of ayam goreng berempah, peanuts, ikan bilis, cucumber, a perfectly fried egg and sambal. The price might put off some but it’s the laborious process, premium ingredients into making this plate that makes it worthwhile. On a side note, will The Coconut Club be expecting a Michelin Star this year since they are out of the Bib Gourmand?
