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!

Nasi Pandang that leaves one clamouring for more

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.

This small Nasi Padang stall at a small coffee shop along Hoy Fatt Rd, junction with Jalan Bukit Merah was awarded 5 chopsticks by Makansutra and it lives up to its reputation - tasty, well prepared Indon food.

Ambience: Hot, crowded, queue - and you still want to eat ??

Food: Ordered a plated food - rendang, sayur lodeh, squid in sambal all plated into one large dining dish. Rendang was delicious because they use a variety and depth of spices. Sayur lodeh was multi-dimensioned, not only creamy and chilli spicey but with other added spices. Great on top of white rice. Chicken curry was well prepared, good cut of chicken in a well seasoned curry gravy.

Value: $6 for one plate, $5 for the other. Reasonable value, could be lower priced.

Service: Queue, wait. Thankfully servers were very polite.
