One of the many famous nasi lemak stalls at Changi Village Hawker Centre, YumzYumz tried Changi Famous Nasi Lemak’s version and this is our food review of their nasi lemak.

We got their set 5 nasi lemak, which consists of the rice, fried chicken, fried egg, otah, begedil and sambal chilli.

Fluffy Coconut Rice

Changi Famous Nasi Lemak’s rice was fluffy, mild pandan and coconut fragrance and subtly seasoned. The rice wasn’t mushy nor lumpy.

Spicy & Sweet Sambal Chilli

A generous splash of their sambal chilli lifted the tastiness of the coconut rice, with not too overpowering spiciness and the needed sweetness to complete the full nasi lemak experience.

Crispy & Savoury Fried Chicken

A large sized meaty chicken wing, with extremely crispy exterior, this was where the crunchy texture of the whole dish. The battered crispy bits had a subtle tumeric flavour, not overtly oily, and carries a satisfying savoury taste.

Although it was deep fried to a near perfection on the outside, the inner flesh was left juicy and tender, and well marinated.

Fried Egg

Well, just another over cooked rock hard fried egg.

Ikan Bilis and Crispy Bits

Their ikan bilis was mixed together with the same batter that their chicken wing was in, and it was a delight to mix it together with the sambal chilli and rice. Although slightly oily, it was still a delightful treat to have.

Mushy Oily Begedil

Sadly in the begedil department, the taste wasn’t what we expected. It was underwhelmingly seasoned, which tasted mostly oiliness and potato. Almost seemingly a mashed french fries with salt. It would help if it had more celery taste or even the bits of fried shallots. Definitely needed more bite to it.

Improvements Needed Otah

We love otah and are a bunch of otah suckers. We can’t get enough of good otahs. In the case of Changi Famous Nasi Lemak, their otah was extremely mushy with zero bite to it. Mushy and cold, it aint the best we had, although not the worst either.

Conclusion

At a price of $5, Changi Famous Nasi Lemak’s set 5 nasi lemak is definitely a great choice for a hearty heavy meal, considering the array of ingredients. The heart of it all is definitely their rice and sambal chilli, for it brings the whole dish as one. Playing second fiddle has got to be its amazingly crispy tasty chicken wing, followed by the “improvements needed” department of otah, egg and begedil.
