Fixed my Nasi Lemak craving at Ponggol Nasi Lemak. Set 2 ($4.70) comes with one chicken wing, sunny side up, ikan bilis and coconut rice. As usual, the rice is very fluffy and thoroughly infused with the fragrance of coconut milk, and it goes really well with the runny egg, crunchy ikan bilis with peanuts and spicy chilli. The fried chicken wing is crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside and so delicious.

I added two more sides: brinjal ($1.10) and ngoh hiang ($1.50). The brinjal looks like an unappetising black blob but it’s actually quite soft and tasty. The ngoh hiang is also surprisingly crispy and the minced meat filling is well-seasoned.

This is pretty much everything I need in a good plate of Nasi Lemak - craving satisfied!

fragrant coconut rice and egg was runny 👍🏻 chicken wing was very crispy but not fantastic as it’s rather small. chili was disappointing as it’s not spicy at all, rather on the sweet side

Heard this place sold one of the best nasi lemaks in Singapore. This was set 2 which came with coconut rice, sambal, fried chicken, fried egg and anchovies/peanuts. Added the brinjal for $1.10. Quite mediocre to me - sambal was normal, fried chicken is crispy but nothing special. And the portion of the brinjal is so sad for $1.10? Even the chai fan stall gives me more brinjal 😂

Surprisingly, the ngoh hiang (not pictured) was the highlight. Crunchy carrot and jicama bits in the ngoh hiang made it taste fresh.

The fried chicken is the highlight.

The sambal chilli is also good.

But kinda pricey for nasi lemak.

Jot this spot down for a quick and easy way to sort out your nasi lemak cravings — served on wax paper for easy disposal. The Ponggol Nasi Lemak (from $4) comes with crispy wings, aromatic Thai Hom Mali grain-rice, fried egg as well as homemade sambal sauce. Choose from their selection of delicious sides to add on like the spicy Eggplant ($1.20 per portion), crispy Chicken Skin with Curry Leaves ($1.50 per portion) and Ngoh Hiang ($1.50 per piece).

- I ordered 2 sets of nasi lemak, one is 5.5 SDG and the other one is 4.7 SDG and one lemon juice with the price of 1.2 SDG. And how do I feel after leaving the restaurant?—>fulfilled
Long story short, I was starving and having a crave for Nasi Lemak. The 1st time I tried Nasi Lemak was in Malaysia in 2014 and to tell the truth I didn’t like the dish very much. The 2nd time was at Universial Studio in Singapore in 2019 and I loved it. May be because when I was in grade 11, I hadnt been abroad much and I was kinda struggling to digest the food. But we are talking about 21 years old me who adore the dish so much. The 3rd time (today on Sep 15, 2019) is at this place. It was a simple dish got done right with all the flavor comes to life (no exaggeration people). The chicken was fried beautifully keeping all the moist inside and it is crispy on the outside. And I think I really need to steal the coating powder recipe because that piece of chicken was so delightful to bite. Another star of the dish was the rice cooked with coconut, the smell of coconut fat just spices up everything else and melts in my mouth. Speaking of the fried fish with crunchy peanuts, god heaven, I love how joyful it is when you hear yourself chewing the thing. With a touch of some slices of cucumber, they bring out all the freshness like we’ve been hiking under the scorching sun and stop for a sip of water, like, how refreshing is it, right? Another ingredient that helps neutralize the dish is the basted egg, soft, creamy and rich. One more thing we can’t overlook is the sauce called “sambal”, truly is the cherry on the cake. Overall, this is a good start for me in Singapore and you should check this place out if you are happened to be nearby.
