Adam's road Nasi Lemaks

I've been eating a hell lot of durian lately, which uncoincidentally have nothing to do with this post at all. *Big smile*

Alrighty, having heard about Adam's Road famous Nasi Lemak, we specially made a trip down today (after having dragging that trip on for months).

Good nasi lemak? Read on.

There were two stalls side by side; Adam's Nasi Lemak and Selera Rasa's Nasi Lemak, and clearly Adam's was getting all the attention with consistent long queues but Selera's was only enjoying a tiny trickle of customers (most of which I think chose it over Adam's because of the long queue, like me).

So we were so full of anticipation before eating the nasi lemak right... after eating a spoonful of rice each, our anticipation levels dropped to half and we were like "Thats... it?". Oookay, the rice didn't blow me away this time; and I'm a person who gets blown away very easily as someone else mentioned.

It's just too grainy (read: not fluffy at all). Not lemak enough (read: not enough coconut and pandan) and just lacking of something. I don't know what, and I don't think they know too if not they'll be having queues twice as long as Adam's. Oh well, at least the sambal made up for it somehow. Don't get me wrong, it's not excellent I've tasted much better sambal elsewhere but its not bad lar. The begedil is quite nice though, soft and sufficiently potato-ey. Don't even talk about the chicken wing. It's batter is HARD and TASTELESS and so is the chicken wing. Period.

So we weren't satisfied OF COURSE. So I had to queue up for Adam's and I suay suay kena one dude who ta pao-ed 4 packets of nasi lemak. Okay, nevermind though because the nasi lemak looked promising and lets just say the rice is much much better than Selera's. It's got enough coconut, it seperates easily (Oh did I mention that Selera's rice CLUMPS?), and it's soft, not grainy.

The sambal is not bad but Selera's would be the winner in this category. The chicken wing is better than Selara's but only slightly and the begedil and otah is only average.

*Sigh* Aye, I prefer Hup Lee's nasi lemak lar at least their chicken wing rocks my socks and their chilli is Mmm, very yummy and their rice, Hieh can easily beat them both. (Subjective to taste, please don't flame me okay?)

No. 1 Nasi Lemak in Singapore? You be the judge.

On that note, I've ever tried the Noo Cheng prawn mee from the same FC that has ghastly queues...

And it served to be a ghastly disappointment as well. ):

Heyo mich, we wanted to try tt stall too. Phew, lucky we didn't

Yes, I do agree Noo Cheng is severely overrated. I'm not a prawn noodle fan myself but if do get a bowl it's from Mei Chin Rd Food Center

Try the sting ray from Adam BBQ seafood or something like that...and not to forget the cheng tng there.... rojak is not too bad also. I think the nasi lemak is way too overated. Seriously.

Hi fantastic blog! Does running a blog such as this require a large
amount of work? I have virtually no expertise in coding however
I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should
you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please
share. I know this is off topic but I simply had to ask.
