We tried the yellow ginger chicken, curry chicken, and roast pork. I think the ginger chicken was the best, though we did like all. First time seeing nasi lemak served with pork.

Checked out Grandma’s recipe at Punggol since i was in the neighbourhood!

This place specalises in nasi lemak! A quick scan of reviews posted showed that most ppl liked the yellow ginger chicken, hence we went for that too! The waiting time for the food was almost 30mins when we reached on a weekend afternoon as just so happens there was a bulk order of like 8 packs two customers before me.

The nasi lemak was nicely packed with everything in their own corners! The yellow ginger chicken reminds me of indo panggang the yellow chicken. To me, it is much like peranakan style chicken. The chilli here was also quite different from the typical nasi lemak chilli. It was sweeter, and I saw bits of onion slices in it too. (No comments for the achar and cucumber as I gave them away).

For the price of $5, it is slightly expensive for nasi lemak. But since we had burpplebeyond 1 for 1 (paid total $6 for two packs), price was still ok! They charge 50 cents per pack for takeaway here. So do bring your own container to save on costs! We saw punggol residents bringing round containers to store the food! (haha i would have done so but didnt know what kind of containers they accept and decided to just not bring them)

We ordered the ginger chicken ($5, left) and pork belly nasi lemak ($5, right). It was a surprise that it was so good and well prepared. Rice was flavourful and not oily. Pork belly was crispy and came with good sambal. Ginger chicken was tender, came with drumstick, and the sauce was flavourful. Came with side of achar and boiled egg, which made it refreshing. Not your usual neighbourhood nasi lemak. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ordered the Yellow Ginger Chicken Nasi Lemak and the Curry Chicken Nasi Lemak.
The rice has a mild coconut milk fragrance, the ikan bilis are crispy and the sambal chilli is of the right amount of spiciness for me, slightly less sweet than usual nasi lemak chilli. For the chicken, both flavours are good but my fav will have to be the Yellow Ginger Chicken!

Tried the yellow ginger chicken nasi lemak. This serving of nasi lemak does not gives a 'Jelak' feeling. The owner is friendly, stall beside a park connector route and will recommend as a cycling pit stop.


5 selection for 1-1 menu. When we arrived, the ginger fried chicken drumstick ($5) was just ready. We decided to try the chicken wing set as we prefer chicken wing ($4). The owner was friendly and overheard him not charging another customer $0.30 for takeaway as the guy didn’t have small change. He merely said, come back more often. The lemak rice was great and piping hot. The chicken wing was 3 pieces instead of 2, served alongside one egg, ikan bilis nuts and achar. Great value for money and it seemed the most popular breakfast stall in this coffeeshop. If you are not living in Punggol, it’s a maze finding the coffeeshop after you parked your car. Will definitely be back to support.
