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:)

Go!!

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.

Had the nasi lemak at jln besar area. Was shocked that there is a outlet in this area.
The nasi lemak here is abit fast food style, ordered via set and immediately they serve as accordingly. Still prefer the outlet at hougang tho. (more variety of ingredient to choose) Although i rarely eat the nasi lemak but still recognise that taste as of the hougang outlet. The rice is neatly cooked and goes really well with the chili and ikan bilis. Loving how the fish is fry to perfection and that lovely egg.
Overall the food is good, and defintely will be back again.

Price start from at least $4 per set
Additional ingredient at additional charge.

I only had at the Upper Serangoon outlet and its my first time at the "fast food" style outlet at Jalan Besar.
Honestly, I didn't have high expectations for my nasi lemak so the food here is really quite decent. Perfect round sunny side up, curry vegetables, fried chicken wings and otah. Though it was nothing to shout about but it definitely will satisfy any nasi lemak cravings.
Psst.... You definitely need to get a box of these suuper sinful and addictive chicken skin (!!) Most of photos are filled with #accidentalhandmodel while stealing these crunchy oily and oh so good chicken skins 😹

This is a must-try here; after all who could resist these savoury chicken skins sautéed in slightly sweet dark sauce and with the fragrance of crisp curry leaves? Have them hot, when they still carry enough crisp; it sort of turns slightly limp and a tad packed with grease when cooled down. There is always the option of adding a portion of these on to a individual plate at $1.50, but really, just get a $4.70 portion to share if you are in a group because you can never get enough!
