I frequent this place together with many of my friends for one of the best places to eat Nasi Lemak in Singapore. Nasi Lemak is a malay dish that directly translates into "Rice Fat" and is one of Singapore's iconic dishes such as Chicken Rice, Laksa and Char Kuay Teow (Just to name a few). It is so named because of the cooking method that involves infusing the rice with coconut which is known to be high in fat content.
If you're looking for a small, not-too-crowded eating destination that is quintessentially Singaporean, then this is one of a handful that you must visit. It isn't very large, and the ring of stalls that form a courtyard seating area with umbrellas make this eating centre less stuffy, as is the case for many fully-enclosed eating spaces. It is a bit weather-sensitive but a nice setting nevertheless.
The Nasi Lemak stall by the name of Selera Rasa can be found second to the end of the corner leading to the proper entrance/exit of the food stall circus. It is situated next to another Nasi Lemak stall that sits in position no. 1 (Hence it's name No.1 Nasi Lemak, and should not be confused for any claim of quality, and I can't vouch for it's quality as I have yet to try it, though it and it has garnered it's own food awards as well, proudly displayed in the front).
Get ready to face a long queue that doesn't move very quickly if you decide to visit on weekends, or peak meal times (11-2pm, 5:30-7pm) They usually sell out before dinner though.
Another must try is the Prawn Mee, if you are a fan of seafood. The stall can be found almost directly opposite Selera Rasa and a bowl will cost you about $10 if you decide on the big juicy tiger prawns. I love the soup and the prawns are consistently fresh for the times I have visited.
New to singapore or just visiting for a day? If you've heard tonnes about our hawker food culture and cant decide between the many famous venues? Then let me strongly recommend Adam Road Food Centre for being accessible (central-ish location) and not too overwhelming with their choices. (like lau pa sat)
