Sedap Chong Pang Nasi Lemak!

It’s been some time since I had some kickass nasi lemak!

So when Grace asked me out for dinner at Chong Pang, I really couldn’t say no. Besides, I’ve never eaten at the original Chong Pang. Grace eats there pretty often because it’s near her place and now I know why it’s gotten so much publicity.

What makes a good nasi lemak? Every one has their own preferences. For me, the sambal must be ultra sedap – not too sweet and not too oily. The rice mustn’t be clumpy; it should be fragrant but not too overpowering. Coconut milk shouldn’t drown out the lightness of the rice. Ahhhh then there’s…

TWO other things…

Ikan bilis with peanuts:


Chicken wing!

By the time we got to Chong Pang, it was around 9+ and both Grace and I were starving.

That explains the full plate. Heh it’s an easy guess which is mine.

The first two shots of a very very full plate – that’s mine… Together with lots and lots of sambal.

Hey, I WAS hungry! And I’m proud to say that I finished every grain of it. I even had an extra chicken wing!

My my… to tell you the truth, I am not a fan of fried chicken wings, but this Chong Pang one really won me over. It was so fresh and crispy that I gave in and within minutes, the chicken wing was in my tummy… Slurp. Satisfying.

Here’s Grace’s plate:

Her egg looks nice! And the hashbrown was yummy too.

By the time we were done, both of us had a HUGE grin on our faces.

You don’t have to guess how happy we were….. I’ll give you a rough idea:

Grace and I trying to include our food in the shot!

Now now, I really don’t mind travelling all the way down to Yishun again. Although I don’t live too near the area. This is one nasi lemak worth the long bus ride.

Sedap! (Malay for delicious). Gracie babe, thanks for the recommendation and the great company. We have to go back there again soon! Wins – you really missed out :p
