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.
