Kueh Lopes are in triangular shape and come with dark syrup. We use only half of the syrup. Very well covered in coconut flakes. It doesn’t have the filling. We prefer Kueh Buah Melaka.👌

The jackfruit curry comes with our favourite jackfruit seed. It is a delicacy and signature dish here. Queue could be quite long (15 mins waiting time on Saturday). Wish the curry base could be thicker though.

Calling out all Nasi Padang fans! Check out Rumah Makan Minang at Kampong Glam or Our Tampines Hub the next time you want to get your Nasi Padang fix. There’s a vast selection of curries and dishes that you can choose from, some which are rather unique to the restaurant.

What are some of the must try dishes here? I would say it’s their signature beef rendang ($3.50 per person) and Indonesian tahu telur ($6). The differentiating factor for Minang’s beef rendang is in the gravy and the rempah (spice paste). While beef rendang at most places tend to be on the sweeter side, Minang’s rendang was spicy and aromatic which was a nice change from what I’m used to. The well-marinated beef may not be the softest but this is how it should taste if we were to go by the Padang-style playbook.

For those not familiar with Indonesian cuisine, tahu telur is basically a block of fried firm tofu (taukwa) mixed with eggs. It’s served with beansprouts, ground peanuts and sweet, watered down kicap manis (sweet soy sauce). What makes their tahu telur good is that the beancurd is fried till crispy but remains firm and moist on the inside.

We also had the gulai ayam ($3.50), sambal goreng ($4.50), sayur kangkung ($3.50), begedil ($1 each), salted egg ($1 for half). They were reasonably good too and the gulai ayam was rich in coconut milk but could’ve been spicier. And my favourites sambal goreng and begedil didn’t disappoint at all.

We spent $36 for 2 including rice and drinks which may be on the high side for some. My only gripe is that their delicious selection of sambal to accompany the food was charged separately at $0.50 per tub.

Considering what I have was already good, I’ll come back and try the rest of the dishes.

We can count on the number of Petai Beans (4 prawns are given). Hope they are more generous with beans cos they are actually our highlights! Rumah Makan Minang is still our favourite value Nasi Padang eatery that we absolutely love!!🔥
P.S. double every single dish we order here to be enough for 2 persons. Pay double but well worth it!

Thought we already agree that it is for 2 persons. Somehow we are given 1 Sotong which never gonna be enough for sharing. No rubbery effect just soft and easy to chew Sotong.👍

The only dish (out of 3 dishes) whose portion is enough for sharing for 2 persons. We find the curry a bit on the light watery side but no regret to choose this jackfruit curry as it is a must order!
