There are many stalls with long queues in Hainanese Village Food Centre at Lorong Ah Soo but the one with the longest queue is Yi Liu Xiang Nasi Lemak. I was certainly curious about what is so special about this nasi lemak that makes so many people want to queue for it, so I decided to give it a try today.
A plate of Yi Liu Xiang nasi lemak which comes with ikan bilis (fried anchovy), a slice of egg omelette and a fish fillet costs only $2.10. The delicious rice is reasonably flavorful with the distinctive aroma of coconut milk. The savory chilli sauce blends remarkably well with the fragrant rice. And the special ikan bilis is extremely crispy and tasty.
Although, in terms of quantity, Yi Liu Xiang nasi lemak is value for money, it pales in comparison with other famous nasi lemak eg Selera Rasa, International etc, in terms of quality.
