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.

Comfort food to combat Monday Blues💙 There is nothing fancy about Ponggol Nasi Lemak ($4.70 for Set 2, extra $1.10 for eggplant), but sometimes life just calls for a good old treat of crispy fried chicken wing, runny fried egg, ikan bilis, eggplant, chili and coconut rice:)


The dishes from Punggol Nasi Lemak are so simple yet so delicious. A must try is their fried chicken wings. It's one of the best I've ever eaten from a nasi lemak place (the other one being the fried chicken from Coconut Club but that one's seasoned so it's slightly different).

I do feel that the prices at this place are slightly on the higher side, but what keeps me going back is how they maintain the consistency of the dishes. The sunny side up eggs are pretty, chilli is flavourful, rice is of the right texture, even the ikan bilis are super tasty.

Everything here is rather great, except for the person tending the cashier, who is usually an uncle dressed in shirt and pants. Every single time I'm here I get annoyed at how slow the whole ordering process is. They could really do with some improvements in this aspect.

Take Tastemaker Chua Xing Wei's advice and share a portion of Sauteed Crispy Chicken Skin with Curry Leaves ($4.70) and attack immediately upon serving. Goes perfectly with your nasi lemak. But come on, you know it'll go with anything.
