We got the Thai milk tea + Kyoto matcha with brown sugar and mochi. Their earl grey lavender is also a good choice 馃槏

Over at Adam Road Food Centre, there are a number of stalls selling nasi lemak however, only two neighboring stalls stood out among the rest.

Since it is my first time there, I do not know which is the better one but I decided to go for Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak simply for the fact that they do not serve fried peanuts which I am not very fond of.

The seven options on their menu have interesting names, ranging from "Flash Meal" that consists the very basics like ikan bilis and egg with coconut rice, cucumber slices and sambal chili ($2.90) to the "Royal Rumble" ($5.90) which contained everything they have like fried chicken wing and ikan kuning.

I ordered the "Royal Flush" ($5.40) which consists of a fried chicken wing, an otah wrapped in banana leaf, a begedil, a fried egg, ikan bilis, sambal chili and a few slices of cucumber together with coconut rice.

The stall uses basmati rice which is low in GI (Glycemic Index) and can particularly help manage glucose levels in people with Type 2 diabetes.

Anyway, the rice is extremely light and fluffy and full of pandan fragrance with hints of savory notes to it.

The sambal chili is more sweet than spicy and goes rather well with the rice.

I have extremely high hopes for the chicken wing but alas, it is cold to the touch while the marinade is slightly underwhelming. The only redemption is that the chicken tastes fresh and the batter is still crispy.

There is a certain flavor in this begedil not found in other begedils which makes it very appealing.

The otah is cold as well but there is a spicy kick to it that I like.

The ikan bilis are delightfully crunchy.

The egg yolk is fully cooked instead of being runny.

To me, the basmati rice is the highlight of the meal and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My only gripe is that other than the rice, everything else on the plate is served cold.

I can turn a blind eye to the fried egg, begedil and otah but cold chicken wing?

If only the fried chicken wing is served hot, the over all experience would have been more pleasant.

But, what do I know?

Apparently, Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak is the preferred breakfast for the Sultan of Brunei each time he is here in Singapore. Also, PM Lee once hosted Indonesia's President Joko Widodo for breakfast and guess what is on the menu?

While it might be the most famous nasi lemak in Singapore but is it truly the best?

With reviews touting it as "unbeatable" and "unparalleled" in Singapore, I have to come try it for myself to see whether they really live up to those claims.

I was there an hour earlier before the lunch crowd arrive so there were only a couple of people in the queue which cleared pretty fast. When it came to my turn, I ordered a bowl of mee soto ($3.50) and added a bergedil ($1).

After receiving my order, I scooped two tablespoons of sambal kicap into my bowl for the extra kick.

My bowl of yellow noodles is topped with shredded chicken, fried shallots, coriander and of course my precious bergedil.

While the color of the broth may not seem the least appetising, it is richly flavored and aromatic. I find the taste of star anise slightly overpowering though.

The sambal kicap is one of the most potent ones I have come across and it certainly added some dimensions to the flavors. I normally have a high tolerance for chili but this is my first time having beads of sweat rolling off my forehead as I eat.

As for the bergedil, it is firm and did not fall apart despite being half submerged in the broth. According to my research, the bergedil was selling for $0.50 a piece in 2016. Two years on and price have since doubled to a dollar. Damn inflation!

So, is this mee soto as formidable as they say?

In my opinion, no.

Without a doubt, this is still one of the better ones among those that I have tried but I have had better ones.

Their 7 course dining experience would definitely suit a meat lover but I would have enjoyed it better if there were more variety in the type of dishes that were being served, would be good if a pasta was slotted in between. More of a casual dining experience, so don鈥檛 expect it to be fine dining, but I did enjoy the main course and the Foie Gras Creme br没l茅e

I only wished that the mushrooms were juicier.

The nut powder did not fully cover the bingsu but ours comes with vanilia ice cream that was not suppose to be there as shown in the menu.

I won鈥檛 called it a bingsu because the ice is coarse and not like those usual bingsu which supposed to be thinly shaved. Topped with mango sauce, cut mango and vanilia ice cream. Mango is a mixture of sour and sweet ones.

Slightly more on the drier side, I felt that the overall dish was not too oily, but there wasn't a very Thai taste to it either. There could have been more Chilli flakes to it. Also, they have 鑿滃渻 in it, I'm not sure whether it is usual? Hmmmm. It lacks the overall phad thai flavour in the entire dish though.

Was there for dinner with my partner and the food there were really inexpensive.

The steak is flavourful and nicely grilled and the sides are really delicious. Worth it for the price paid.

Here's the Toasted bagel with smoked ocean trout, fresh onions. arugula and dill & onion cream cheese that i had awhile ago at @theaffogatobar
