Sedap!

Located near my office, this is the go-to-spot when we're craving for a little more oomph in our lunch. 

Expect a long queue when you're there and do split up your resources to queue and get a table at the same time. If there's no queue -- you're probably having a late lunch and would have limited dish selections remaining.

Everything's good here. No, really. My usual order would be a beef rendang or fried chicken with sambal goreng and vegetables or bergedil. If you're feeling a little rich, do get their sambal sotong as well.

This Nasi Padang is a little expensive (1 meat, 1 veg and 1 seafood at $6.30 or 1 meat, 1 side and 1 veg at $4.50) but very much worth the price and the waiting time. 

Note: The Ayam Lemak Padi looks innocently mild and un-red, but it does pack quite a punch!

Yes, you have to tell the makcik (Malay for “Madam” or “auntie”) that you have only $2.50 to spend and risk holding up the line a little longer, but she will do her best to scramble for the most filling and varied plate. During our visit, she piled on the rice and gave an egg, a plump bergedil (fried potato patty), stir-fried green beans and milky, non-soggy (vegetables), less oily than most sayur lodeh (vegetables stewed in coconut milk curry). With so much flavour, we didn't mind that the plate was vegetarian, nor did we mind the food coma that came later in the afternoon.

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
