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!

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 plum

Lives up to 5 chopsticks award.

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

Bagus!

Let's just say that the coffeeshop is constantly full of people looking for a empty table so that they can get started on their Nais Padang!

The rare chance that I could meet my hubby for lunch, we decided to try our luck at finding a table.

We finally located a small rectangular table next to a
