One of the most popular nasi lemak stalls in Singapore, Ponggol Nasi Lemak is famous for the large variety of side dishes it serves. Now serving everyone here at Jalan Besar, Ponggol Nasi Lemak strives to fulfill everyone's craving for the city's most favourite food, Nasi Lemak.
I love the nasi lemak here. I take away my lunch almost every weekend from the Jalan Basar outlet. But on two occasions I realised the take away box didnt have the contents I ordered. One time a half rice was missing and another time cucumber and chilli was missing. First time I didnt go back to the outlet, but second time I went there and they added the chili. Both times I found out that contents were missing after I have went back home.
Please make sure you check your contents in the take away boxes before leaving the premises. It's a bit dissapointing when you found out that items are missing when you go back home. No complains what so ever about the taste, I love it.
Went to the new outlet at Jalan Besar. The guy behind the counter (there's only this one older male front service staff, maybe manager/owner) expressed some reluctance to fulfill my order of extra side portions. I ordered anyway because I was hungry, and he gave me tiny portions on both the set and side order. It all looked very deliberate, and very very dishonest. It's not the cost that bothers me but the repeated practice of intentionally reducing portion sizes. Yes, this wasn't the first time. I could have told him off, but decided I'm just not going here anymore. I even brought 5 friends. Distasteful experience. Gonna stick to Adam Road where they don't scrimp on these things.

At the latest flagship store, there's an added perk of 7 new premium house specialties. The updated menu also includes a new home-brewed Hibiscus Iced Tea ($1.90) and a myriad of homemade sorbet and ice cream.Started off with one of the new premium house specialties, Crispy Chicken Skin w Curry Leaves ($1.50 per serving/ $4.80 per tub). Rather addictive. Grilled Japanese Squid with Special Sauce ($7.50 per piece). The squid that is air-flown from Japan is grilled before it is served with a robust dip of kicap manis.And of couse the fried stuff Crispy Battered Whole Prawn ($3.80 for 2 pcs) & Crispy Battered Fish Fillet ($3.80 for 2 pcs).
The first time sweets are making an appearance at Ponggol Nasi Lemak. The homemade Ice cream and Sorbet are going at $2.50 per cup. Sorbet selections include Raspberry Mango, Lemongrass Lim, Pink Guava, Kyoho Grape, Passion Fruit and Blood Orange. As for the ice cream selections, flavours available here are Milo, Peanut Butter Milk and Green Tea. There were Horlick as well during my visit. Overall, I personally like the new store! :)
An example of how tradition means modernity -This new concept can be replicated due to the fast food design. Food was surprisingly as good as its other outlets. Its plus point would be the variety of ingredients you can choose to go with your nasi lemak and the fully air-conditioned environment to escape the heat of tropical Singapore.
