“Changi Village” has somehow become synonymous with Nasi Lemak, with some famous stalls there including Mizzy Corner, International Muslim Food Stall Nasi Lemak, and Old School Canteen Nasi Lemak.
Just the very thought kept me salivating.
If you are new to Changi Nasi Lemak, you might be slightly confused when walking past this bright yellow, cheery eatery.
Yes, this Upper Thomson restaurant is named as such as they started from selling at Changi Village and moved to Bukit Batok before opening its new place here.
They were actually established in the 1970s, said to be known to serve up savoury Chinese-style Nasi Lemak.
The website details that they have concentrated on perfecting their sambal chilli and want to refocus on bringing nasi lemak to the masses.
There are six options on the glass windows: chicken wing, fish, and cutlet sets are amongst the choices.
Prices start from $5.80, and classic sets on the menu include Chicken Wing Set ($5.80), Signature Thigh Cutlet Set ($6.90), Spicy Thigh Combo ($8.20), Crunchy Drumstick ($6.90), Otak-Otak ($5.80), Curry Drumstick ($6.90) and Double Ikan Kuning ($5.90).
If you are a fan of the McSpicy burger, order their Spicy Thigh. It is supposedly inspired by the Mcdonald’s recipe for fried chicken, combining the best of both worlds.
There is also a wide variety of add-ons, such as otah and curry vegetables.
In the end, I went for the signature with deep fried chicken wing, peanuts, egg, and cucumber.
I liked the light fragrance of the rice, slightly flavourful and not too greasy.
The chicken wing was not bad with a different crunchier style of batter, mildly hot, but I suspect customers may prefer something juicier or more succulent.
The winning point to me was the sweetish chilli fried with ikan billis and onions.
Even if you don’t like chilli, add sambal chilli from the stall. Changi Nasi Lemak is known for its chilli dip with an ingredient mix handpicked by the founders.
