So, we decided to travel all the way to Changi Village over the weekend to check out the best nasi lemak.
Since we ate Changi Famous Nasi Lemak before this adventure, we wanted to check it out to see if it was as good as we remembered. The last meal we had here was maybe 3-4 years back.
Well, lets see if anything has changed or are they still as good as we think we remembered them to be.
As we travelled all the way from the west to the east, we decided that we had to at least try 3-4 nasi lemak from the different stalls.
As the travel was nearly an hour, we incentivised ourselves with having our Changi Famous Nasi Lemak at the hawker center, followed by Melaka cendol from one of the restaurant nearby.
We patronized 4 nasi lemak stalls, though there were more than four stalls. One really dissapointed us while the other 3 were not bad for the trip down the East.
The four stalls we patronize were International Muslim Food Stall Nasi Lemak, Mizzy Corner Nasi Lemak, Changi famous food center nasi lemak and Changi Famous Nasi Lemak.
Here are the four different nasi lemak that we had.
We ta-paued the other 3 nasi lemak back to check out the differences. And I must say, I was pretty dissappointed with one of them as they really disgraced the name of the nasi lemak. But, we were compensated with one being much better than Change Famous Nasi Lemak.
All the nasi lemak that we bought was S$3.50 with additional $1 for otah and 0.70 cents for begedil. As we packed these 3 nasi lemak and only ate them during dinner time, they looked a bit smashed up, but 2 did not fail to light up our evening, while we had to discard one away.
So, when I opened up one of the packed nasi lemak, it smelled stale while the other two smelled fresh and fragrant.
In fact, we found one of them to be much better than the Famous Changi Nasi Lemak, as the rice was fragrant and the chilly was delicious, the amount of crispy ikan bilis was also good. And their otah was fresh and succulently nice too. Yes, yes, it was the nasi lemak from Mizzy Corner.
The International Muslim Food Stall Nasi Lemak was not too bad too. Though the amount of chilli and ikan bilis were lesser than Mizzy. And their rice was not as fragrant, but the packet, when opened smelt ok.
So, if you are heading down to Changi Village Hawker Center for nasi lemak. Definitely go for Mizzy Corner’s and if they are closed or have long queue, you may consider the Famous Changi Nasi Lemak or The International Muslim Food Stall Nasi Lemak. Mizzy Corner has two stalls within the same row, so if the corner stall has long queue, you can queue at the stall 2-3 units down the lane for faster purchase.
And of course, other than the nice teh tarik or drinks in the hawker center, you can also hop in the Makan Melaka restaurant, which is situated at the side of the hawker center, for a fresh bowl of nice cendol.
