Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak – Best Nasi Lemak in town ?
The queue was exceptionally long and waiting for half an hour just for the food is quite norm at Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak stall. It is being honored the best Nasi Lemak in Singapore, so well known and even gaining the attention of the Brunei Sultan going after the food here.
Is Selera Rasa Nasi really lives up to the name of the best Nasi Lemak and what really the secret of their success?
There are different sets with variation of ingredients that you can choose to suit your appetite. We ordered the basis set of Nasi Lemak that came with chicken wing, egg, ikan bilis, otah and the typical Nasi Lemak chili.
The nasi or the rice is always the focus of this dish and could make the dish a great success or complete let down. Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak uses high quality basmati rice, the rice has a distinct but well balanced coconut aroma and is enthralling and additive.
The chicken wing was deep fried to create a crispiness on the exterior but the seasoning was underpowered and the whole wing was tasteless and featureless.
The otah was nice with good seasoning and right firmness from the fish paste mixture. However, the egg was overcooked and too dried, ikan billis were too ordinary and nothing worth to mention.
We know Nasi Lemak must be accompanied by good chilli sauce, the chilli sauce is much sweet tasting and very mild in spiciness. Good for those less tolerable of the burning fire from the chilli, however, we find the chili sauce is too sweet to our liking.
Overall, Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak scores well in their salivating rice but may not be the topping and chilli sauce. A good Nasi Lemak should be more well balance in all aspect and we feel that Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak could be over-hyped as there is equally good or even better Nasi Lemak we have come across.
