Underdog #3 mama fita nasi Padang

Nasi Padang
Chinatown complex
02-222

I love walking around Chinatown complex market because once in a while, you find a jewel .

My recent haunt is yuan Lang Soy Sauce chicken / Hk style wanton mee at Chinatown complex ( see my earlier post ) .

The latest jewel I have discovered is this Indonesia nasi Padang stall . The food is sooooooooooooo good and so flavourful - the cooking is really from the heart .

Different from the usual nasi Padang stalls because this stall specialises in Indonesian type nasi Padang . The Assam fish was such a killer and so was the black sweet soy sauce chicken and the sayur lodeh.

The Chef is nowhere other than from Indonesia , Surabaya - so what you get is true authentic home style Indonesian cooking .

A set of Assam fish ( and a huge piece ) and a side of vegetables ( your choice ) is only 5 dollars - can you imagine ? ?

Ask for a huge dallop of her homemade sambal because it bursts with so much flavour and very very spicy too .

Much much much better in taste and quality and value than the famed nasi Padang along Kiliney road .

Try and see if you’d agree with me 😊
Best to go in a group so that you can order a variety of dishes to share .

Stop by to chat with mama fita because she’s so friendly and nice to speak with 😊

Drop by this casual dining spot on Tanjong Pagar Road for authentic Korean grub. Order their famous Jjajangmyeon ($12, $2 for more noodles) for soft noodles bathed in a luscious sweet and salty black bean sauce. Otherwise, opt for the soupier but equally delicious Jamppong ($14) that sees noodles in a spicy seafood broth that is incredibly addictive. For larger groups, fill the table with their delectable Ginseng Chicken Soup ($18), Seafood Spring Onion Pancake ($20) and Steam Egg ($5). To avoid waiting, come during off peak hours.
