2nd October 2023

Best nasi lemak in Singapore


Nasi lemak is one of Singapore’s national culinary darlings. After all, it never fails to entice us with its aromatic rice steamed with coconut milk, that’s often paired with egg, sambal, ikan bilis, and either fish or chicken on the side. We’ve listed down some of the best nasi lemak places in Singapore to fulfil your cravings for the delicious traditional dish.


1. Mizzy Corner Nasi Lemak

Mizzy Corner Nasi Lemak is one of the most popular stalls in Changi Village Hawker Centre, and for good reason. Their coconut milk-infused basmati rice pairs exceptionally well with the spicy-sweet sambal that is served on the side. Prices are affordable too, starting from $3.50 for the Otah Set, which comes with mackerel otah, egg, and ikan bilis, or the Fillet Set, with its crispy fish fillet instead of the piquant otah. If price is not a concern, go for the Wing Set ($4.50), which has juicy wings to go with your coconut rice.

Even though they’re open well into the wee hours of the morning, Boon Lay Power doesn’t disappoint with their fresh ingredients which are kept piping hot. Their chicken wings are a must-try, as these are well marinated and then deep-fried to crispy, juicy perfection. Prices begin from $3.50 for a standard set, or you can opt for their jumbo Combo Set ($7.50), which comes packed with a chicken wing, two pieces of fried fish, fried egg, and one otak-otak.

A favourite amongst NSFs and army regulars alike, Chong Pang Nasi Lemak sets itself apart by operating like a cai fan stall. Boasting a wide array of dishes daily, the stall gives its customers full reign over the customisation of the dish. Apart from your usual fried chicken wings and ikan kuning, you can also order other side dishes such as lady’s fingers, long beans, and hashbrowns to go with your meal. Their house-made sambal is also a star ingredient, boasting a sweet and nutty flavour that complements the fragrant coconut rice.

Ponggol Nasi Lemak has become a household name in Singapore, thanks to their chicken drumsticks that are freshly fried to a crisp. Pair it with their sambal, which has just the right level of spice that is both tolerable and complementary to the overall meal. They also fry their eggs such that only the edges of the whites are browned, leaving the yolk runny. To level up your meal, you can choose to add side dishes like otak-otak, luncheon meat, and stir-fried lady’s fingers.

Selera Rasa makes this dish a lil’ differently from the rest; they use long-grain basmati rice instead of jasmine rice. As a result, their version is light and fluffy, pairing well with the sweet sambal. Prices here begin from $4 for a Regular Meal that comes with basic ingredients such as ikan bilis, egg, coconut rice, cucumber slices, and sambal. If you’re feeling especially hungry, go for their Royal Rumble ($7), which packs a fried chicken wing, ikan kuning, otak-otak, and begedil.

Located right beside Selera Rasa, No. 1 Adam’s Nasi Lemak’s speciality is its tender and juicy mutton rendang, which comes in a thick and sweet gravy. You can savour the mutton rendang as part of Adam’s Special ($7), where you’ll also find deep-fried chicken wings, begedil, fried egg, anchovies, peanuts, cucumber slices, and sambal. There’s also the Sutra Special ($6), which swaps the mutton rendang out for chunky otah.

The Coconut Club offers their Signature Chicken Nasi Lemak at $21++. Don’t let the price deter you from trying out this Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant though, as they’re generous with their serving portions and fry up their chicken thighs to tender, juicy perfection. The rice is a winner, as it’s cooked with special coconut milk that gives it a delicate aroma. Round off your meal with a serving of their Chendol ($8++), which strikes a fine balance between the creaminess of the coconut milk and the sweetness of the gula melaka.

Dickson Nasi Lemak at Joo Chiat only caters to takeaway orders, but that doesn’t stop its fans from going out of their way to get packets of their nasi lemak. With a menu that is as concise as its furnishings, the store seeks to wow its customers not with the variety of its dishes, but with the quality. You’d be remiss not to go for the Ayam Goreng Berempah ($9.20), which gets you a whole deep-fried spiced chicken leg alongside the usual offerings.

18. Wild Coco


wild coco - nasi lemak ayam berempah leg

Situated in this hipster kopitiam in Balestier, Wild Coco has been making waves for their nasi lemak dishes reminiscent of those of The Coconut Club. The Nasi Lemak Sambal Fried Fish ($10.80) comes highly recommended for fish lovers, with a sweet and firm flesh that is contrasted with crispy skin. Made from freshly, sliced chillis, the house-made sambal is thicker and less sweet than other places. Another equally tasty option is the Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah ($9.80), which comes in either breast meat or chicken leg. The chicken is perfumed with notes of ginger and lemongrass, and goes well with the sambal.

Spicy Wife is a Malaysian-style nasi lemak stall in Amoy Street Food Centre that’s said to rival the aforementioned Coconut Club. That’s high praise indeed, but we thought it was well deserved. Just try the Aromatic Chicken ($6.50) to see for yourself: it stars a large, whole chicken leg that’s marinated overnight in a rempah of eight ingredients such as aromatic garlic, ginger, onion, lemongrass, cumin and coriander seeds. Of course, it comes with your usual nasi lemak components, such as fragrant rice, ikan bilis, sambal and more.
