5. NASI LEMAK – Changi Famous

(S$2.00 – S$5.00)

Translate ‘nasi lemak’ from Malay to English, and you will get ‘rich rice’. The ‘rich’ refers not to wealth, but the coconut cream that makes it oh-so sinfully scrumptious. The rice is normally cooked with pandan leaves that gives a distinctive flavour. Nasi lemak is served with a hot spicy sauce (sambal), and usually include various garnishes, including fresh cucumber slices, small fried anchovies, roasted peanuts, and hard-boiled or fried egg. As a more substantial meal, nasi lemak may also be served with an additional protein dish such as fried chicken (ayam goreng), cuttlefish in chili (sambal sotong), small fried fish, cockles, and otah. Otah or Otak-otak is a grilled fish cake made of ground fish meat mixed with tapioca starch and spices.

Nasi Lemak is so popular in Singapore, the other races have adopted Nasi Lemak in their own variations of the dish and offer a wide selection of ingredients like fried chicken drumsticks, luncheon meat and sotong balls.
