Located under a shophouse in Chinatown instead of where its name suggests, Mount Faber Nasi Lemak is one of the famous nasi lemak in Singapore, along with Punggol and Fong Seng.
Ready for a sumptuous lunch when I went there last week, I ordered a plate of nasi lemak with fried onion omelette, curry vegetables, curry potato and fried sotong balls which cost only $3.80.
Rich in the irresistable aroma and flavour of coconut milk, the nasi lemak is delicious, definitely comparable to that of Punggol. The sambal chilli is sufficiently sweet and spicy. The fantastic fried onion omelette is certainly one of the best I have tasted in Singapore. The curry vegetable is delightfully tasty, coated with thick and savory gravy that goes very well with the rice. The fried sotong balls are however rather mediocre, neither crispy nor juicy.
In terms of the quality and prices of the dishes, Mount Faber Nasi Lemak is certainly more impressive than Punggol. Furthermore Mount Faber is open the whole day, so you don't have to rush down in the evening just to join the long queue of Punggol.
