Sotong Goreng Nasi Lemak $9 The sotong goreng is a sight to behold - a hulking monstrosity on a stick, featuring a whole squid encased in crunchy, slightly too thick batter. The fact that the squid within was still incredibly tender was impressive. On to the essentials of nasi lemak - I liked the usage of basmati rice as it was light and fluffy, though not as "lemak" as some might prefer it to be, and the generous amount of sweet and spicy chilli was great too. It's the little details that make a dish, and here the humble ikan bilis deserves mention too - freshly fried, delicately crisp and well seasoned with salt. Skip the nondescript begedil if you're thinking of adding extras. Taste: 3.5/5

For Grilled Lobster Nasi Lemak Worth the trek to the East is this stall hidden in a coffeeshop in Tampines Industrial Park. You're here for their Lobster Nasi Lemak ($22) that sees half a grilled lobster covered in grounded herbs, cheese and chilli powder, served with a side of basmati rice, a fried egg. Complete the meal with the fragrant yet fiery sambal chilli — the result of five hours of simmering! Photo by Burppler Sheryl Sherbakes

Lobster Nasi Lemak Finally got to try Lawa Bintang’s lobster Nasi lemak! $22. Though a little pricey, it comes with half a lobster that is topped in this cheesey sauce and chilli powder. Their sambal chilli was also spicy. Pretty hard to find Nasi Lemak chilli with a kick but the ones here r legit!! Will definitely go back and try their fish!

Chicken briyani (owner only charged me 4nett cos it was the end of the day) While the chicken was dry, it was full of flavour and the gravy it was cooked in was delicious, noticeably different from the usual. Extremely savoury, slightly sweet but not too spicy, it complemented the chicken really well. Rice was extremely fluffy while the curry had a full body from the chickpeas, and it was more tangy than savoury. While it may appear mild at first, there's this heat which burns the back of your throat. Definitely the best briyani I've had by far if only the chicken was remotely tender. Hopefully it's because it's the end of the day and it tastes much better when it's freshly cooked. Do note that their closing time vary wildly from 1pm to 4pm depending on the business. For me when I arrived at 3pm there were only 2 packets left and he was preparing to close. P.S. the portion is huge tho, good enough for 2

For Possibly the Best Biryani in Tampines Recommended by a Grab driver to Tastemaker Zul Latiff, the Nasi Biryani Ayam ($5.50) at Tampines Street 11 is, according to Zul, "a full-bodied biryani that eclipses virtually other renditions that I've had, maybe with an exception of one or two". It is also possibly the best biryani in Tampines in his books. This Halal chicken biryani ticks all the right boxes — the long-grained basmati rice and curry are both really fragrant and deliciously seasoned, and then there's the chicken, which is redolent with spices from the rice and is what Zul describes to be "tender to a fault". We're sold. Avg Price: $5 per person Photo by Burpple Tastemaker Zul Latiff

Best Briyani…In Tampines?! [Halal] Under normal circumstances, you’ll never catch me having a plate of Nasi Briyani to myself. Not that I have anything against it, but it just feels like a dish suited for grand occasions, namely weddings. Yet, here I am, trying Shaik Mohamad’s Nasi Briyani Ayam ($5.50) after a Grab uncle recommended and lauded this. So how does it fare? It was actually very good. Now I know briyanis aren’t exactly gourmet or anything to critically assess, but really there are a couple of things about this that are worth mentioning. The long-grain basmati rice and the curry were both so fragrant and deliciously seasoned with flavour, that they were essentially a crime. And the huge piece of chicken that came along with it…holy. The meat was tender to a fault and carries some of the spices that were cooked with the cauldron-size pot of rice which made it incredible. In short, this was a full-bodied briyani that eclipses virtually other renditions that I've had, maybe with an exception of one or two. My only gripe though is with the smell. Forgive me, for I personally find it hard to stand even a whiff of lamb and mutton. They are notorious for having a pretty pungent, hot rubber-like smell, which was quite detectable in this. If you’re like me and find it difficult to tolerate, you might actually be convinced by that alone to give it a miss, but trust me – don’t be quick to dismiss it because as the old adage goes, smells can be deceiving…right?

Nasi Lemak Changed My Life (Disclaimer: Might Not Do The Same For You, But It Did To Me) Before I continue, I’ll just put it out here that I ain’t no nasi lemak connoisseur. To me, nasi lemak is nasi lemak, there isn’t much difference (pls, don’t shoot me if you don’t feel that way). The only nasi lemak spot in singapore that really got my attention was the famous Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak at Adam Road but other than that, nothing much has made my eyes widen and mouth water uncontrollably. Recently dragged my ass all the way down to Changi Village for work and came across this gem hidden away at the hawker centre there. It already has quite a name for itself, and for a good reason too. What I love love love is how they use basmati rice instead of normal rice, and the rice isn’t too overwhelmingly greasy like the rice at a lot of other nasi lemak stalls. The chilli too has just the right blend of heat and sweetness that doesn’t overwhelm the palate. I detest overly-spicy chillies that are so darn spicy with a burning passion (pun intended) that you cannot taste or feel anything else. For Mizzy Corner, I could easily down a plate of JUST their chilli and rice, nothing else. It’s the perfect combination. Their chicken wing was all right, just your standard old chicken wing. The egg was a tad bit undercooked for my liking but who cares, I just need the rice and the chilli. Would love to visit them more often but I don’t have the energy or time to travel down to Changi Village.

Nasi Lemak ($3.50 for the Chicken Wing set) Haven’t been here in approximately 5 years since it’s across the island for me 😅 While most of the basic components of a nasi lemak - ikan bilis, chilli - was well executed here, the star itself, the rice, was lackluster. It lacks the lemak fragrance and the wings, while crisp, lacks flavour. The otah was pretty well done though!

Ayam Cili Tenyeh ($5.90, +$1 for Nacho Cheddar Cheese Dip). Spicy lovers, challenge yourselves to this Ayam Cili Tenyeh from @jenggoodjommakan which ranges from levels 1-4, and a level 5 that’s coming soon in about 2 weeks time! Inspired by the Indonesian dish, Ayam Geprek, that comprises fried chicken served with Sambal chili, this Ayam Cili Tenyeh (which means mashed chili) is a fusion rendition of smashed fried chicken, mixed with chili and mozzarella cheese. Although there’s no cheese pull, but you can expect a symphony of spiciness from the 🌶, creaminess from 🧀 and sweetness from kecap manis and palm sugar over the juicy chicken meat. If level 1 is already intimidating, the cheese dip is a good option to help mellow down the spiciness. Interestingly, as each level increases, the sweetness decreases and without any surprise, the heat spiciness increases. Level 2 - Palm sugar + Cili Tenyeh Level 3 - Cili Tenyeh Level 4 - Cili Tenyeh + Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, a chili pepper that’s ranked 2nd spiciest in the world. Pretty nasty especially since it lingers and left my stomach burning for quite a long while even when the amount that I tasted was a dip with my finger tip. 🥵 Level 5 - Coming soon with imported chili from Jakarta

Lamb Kut Teh, served with rice and 2 lamb ribs ($5.50). Have you ever thought about how a bak kut teh will turn out to be when it’s substituted by lamb? The first visit to @jenggoodjommakan to try their laksudon previously left me a reason to try their modern twist to other traditional dishes on a return visit today, just like this Lamb Kut Teh. Served in a soy saucy broth that’s cooked with 5 different spices such as star anise, cinnamon, it takes much effort and at least 5 hours of slow cooking to ensure tenderness of the lamb rib. Meat falls off the bone easily, and made flavorful by the heavy herbal depth and a slight sweetness of the broth. Interesting alternative to bak kut teh for our halal friends!

Laksudon ($4.50) with chicken cutlet ($2). After relocating several times, I finally found @jenggoodjommakan at Jurong West! Intriguing menu you would find that illustrates the modern twist in Malay cuisine; from laksa udon (you can even have a lobster variation), to lamb kut teh and karate fries. Don’t expect the usual laksa. The laksa broth here is a fish based broth which explains the bits of fish meat that you might find. Still lemak and mouthwatering, especially when the taste of fried shallots could be picked up. Unlike the thick vermicelli that’s easily slurped up, the udon has a thicker texture that get coated by the laksa broth easily. There’s also no fishcake, beansprouts or tau pok, but shredded cucumber and laksa leaves. What I enjoyed most was the crispy chicken cutlet chunks that were somewhat like chicken karaage. Burst with juiciness and were extremely flavorful as they soaked up the laksa broth instead of turning soggy! Stir the sambal chili in for a stronger spicy kick.
