Very legit authentic Nasi Padang and Tahu Telur from Sinar Pagi. So many dishes to choose from! Tahu Telur is drowned in a super sweet sauce. Not cheap though. ($12 for Chicken Rendang Nasi and Tahu Telur)

It kind of means something when a stall boasts of the multiple awards that it receives at the front of the stall. At 830pm when most of the stalls at Geylang Serai Hawker Centre were already closed and with the Ramadan bazaar nearby, I was surprised to find Sinar Pagi still opened and the trays of dishes simply called out to me.

When asked what dishes did I want, I told the stall owner everything looked delicious which he laughed in reply. Eventually decided on sambar goreng, tapioca leaves and sambal ayam. The portion of sambal chicken was huge, perhaps also because it was the last available piece. Meat was tender and even drenched with sambal, the fragrant aroma of the fried skin was still evident. Would have been much better if the chicken was served hot. Sambal was initially sweet, before the lingering spiciness kicks in.

Pro tip: the stall owner taught us that a good Nasi Padang stall will always hide their best curry and only served upon request. He gave us a mixture of curries and chilies; the yellow curry which the tapioca leaves were cooked in was really Lemak and coconutty, might be overwhelming if you aren’t a fan of coconut milk. The chili topped on it had a nice hae bee hiam (dried shrimp sambal paste) smell that was a little fishy but extremely umami. Addictive!

Whenever there's all that gravy, extra rice is compulsory. We went with sambal chicken, tapioca leaves, sambal goreng and bergedil. It was midday and there weren't many dishes. It was also interesting eating that veg for the first time. Even the breast meat in the chicken was quite tender.

Missed out on the usual order of lemak ayam and sayur lodeh. Would try again!

tried my first ever nasi padang from STREAT, one of the events under the Singapore Food Festival! priced at $9 (pretty sure the original price at the stall is waaaaay cheaper), the chicken rendang set came with chicken rendang (of course), bergedil, fried anchovies with peanut and lontong. I was slightly doubtful that this would taste great, since everything was precooked and thus likely to be soggy, but wow I was so wrong. the chicken rendang was so tender and the meat came off so easily. the outside of the bergedil was crispy and the inside was mushy, the way I like it. the fried anchovies with peanuts were so crispy; I'm so thankful for the generous amount of it. and the lontong!!!! wow!!!! the first time I tried lontong, it was so hard and tasteless. it being my first time, I thought lontong always tasted like this and I didn't want to waste my calories on it so I actually asked the stall if I could have less lontong and they kindly gave me one more bergedil instead. the second I tried the lontong, I regretted my request because this one piece of lontong was soft and went so well with all the dishes, making me wish I had more. the chilli that came with it was so sweet and spicy!!! even though the afternoon sun was shining down on me, all I wanted to do was to devour the chilli. am definitely going to visit one of their stalls soon!!!!

There was a queue when I reached. Waited for about 15-20min in line before I got to order my food.

One of the better nasi padang spots.

Begedel was really savoury with a tinge of sweetness. One of the best I have had. It left the deepest impression out of the three dishes I picked. Certainly a must-try!
Wish it wasn't so oily though. Excess oil clearly wasn't drained before serving.

Brinjal balado was tasty. Despite looking really hot and spicy, this dish is surprisingly, not (too) spicy. Eggplant was well cooked; soft and silky. It came apart effortlessly when I gently pried a piece apart with my fork and spoon.

Ayam Panggang was also good. Drumstick was perfectly cooked. Supremely tender and flavourful. But I wish the gravy was less oily.

All in all, this is a stall worth trying out since its standard is above average.
Price is above average as well.
