Nasi padang from Kampong Glam Cafe

This was a quick lunch from last Saturday. I was attending a workshop nearby, and at lunchtime, the entire class of 12 plus our trainer trooped down to the nearest eatery to fill our bellies.

Turns out this random pick was pretty good. The ayam lemak putih – a very mild and coconutty chicken curry – was delish. The gravy was creamy and aromatic, and the chicken was fall-off-the-bone tender. No surprises with the other side dishes, but they were of decent quality. A coursemate thought the omelette – with diced onion and chilli – was a little too salty, but I thought it was just right when paired with rice.

I forgot to ask for the breakdown of prices. Together with a canned drink, this meal came up to S$6.60, so I’m guessing the food cost around S$5.50? Besides nasi padang, they also serve mee rebus, nasi goreng, and other Malay dishes, as well as a selection of Malay kuih kuih and biscuits.
