Nice Nasi Padang Lunch on 23Jan2014

i used to eat here more where my children were younger (meaning i was younger & had more capacity for carbo & cholesterol) & also buy back for home gatherings.

the food was more expensive in recent years but still good. i had a few meals at the nasi padang stall at tanjong pagar railway station which was also good and a lot cheaper before it closed (wonder where it moved to?).

my sis had wanted to try this stall again so we came early at 11am+ on 23.1.2014. still empty but they filled up quite quickly. we ordered 6 dishes for 3pax, cost S$25.

the curries were good as usual, but the both chicken & beef stomach curries while fragrant were really much too salty. the assam fish (ikan tenggiri) was excellent, with slight sour kick. the sotong (squid) in tomato sauce was great to. and the 2 vege, lady fingers & egg plants were very good.

it was a really nice meal, slightly much for 3pax lunch, so S$25 i guess was quite ok really. hawker food can be expensive too these days.

better than the reviews suggest

freshly cooked not too heavy popular at lunchtime on a Sunday. My wife liked the fried chicken and while I admit the chili sauce is sweet it is is also full of onion and tomato and light and a bit different from the norm.

disappointing

The quality of this restaurant has deteriorated over the years. But it hit the low point today when everyone was told there was no Sambal belachan! Personally I was doubly disappointed with my favourite lime juice was no longer available - what's Nasi Padang without limd juice? Then the previously tolerable ambience began to aggravate me. Dirty oily tables, poor selection of drinks in the freezer and cramped seating. For that kind of price, humbler establishments have provided better quality food. The curry chicken was tender but the coconut milk was in discernible, and the Assam fish was hard dry and way past its freshness. One curry chicken leg one tiny piece of Assam fish and two tiny plates of veg for $14:80??? Never again!
