Having heard about the cheap and delicious nasi lemak in Tanjong Pagar Food Centre, I was disappointed to know that it was sold out when I went there for lunch a fortnight ago. Fortunately I had the opportunity to try Pandan Leaf Nasi Lemak when I was there today.
A plate of nasi lemak, which comes with pandan-flavored rice, a fried chicken drumstick, a slice of egg omelette and two pieces of otah, costs only $2.50. Colored light green with pandan flavoring, the fragrant rice is extremely tasty with the delightful aroma of coconut milk and is well-complemented by the impressive sambal chilli. The huge fried drumstick is exceptionally crispy, tender and finger-licking good. The otah is also savory and spicy.
Pandan Leaf Nasi Lemak is indeed fantastic and value-for-money. Please do not miss it if you are having lunch at Tanjong Pagar Food Centre but be prepared to queue.
