Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak is arguably the most famous nasi lemak stall in Singapore. Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong arranged for the nasi lemak from this stall to be served to Indonesian President Joko Widodo when he visited the Istana in November 2014. The Sultan of Brunei gets his breakfast from Selera Rasa each time he visits Singapore. There aren’t many nasi lemak stalls in Singapore with this level of recognition.
Selera Rasa does nasi lemak close to perfection. The basmati rice is super fragrant and it tastes so much better than the regular Thai rice, especially together with the sambal chilli. The chicken wing by itself is one of the best in Singapore, perfect crispiness with a fragrant delicious taste. Mr Abdul Malik’s marinade for the chicken wings has really hit all the right notes. From the picture you can just imagine how delicious the chicken wing would taste with the basmati rice and the sambal chilli. We rate the nasi lemak here 4.4/5. We note that you may encounter some problems with consistency, as the chicken wings that we had that day were very slightly overcooked. They would have received a higher rating if not for this issue.
I heard so many good reviews of this stall and went to get two takeaway orders for lunch today - a fish set (add one chicken wing) and a royal rumble set, both without chilli,
When they were packing, the fish meal only had a chicken wing, cucumber and some ikan billis. I told the guy i had called for a fish meal and add a chicken wing. So he added two fishes and i was fine with that.
When i brought the food home, i realized both sets do not have eggs as depicted in the photos displayed at their stall! I know this is a genuine mistake but I somehow felt let down and shortchanged for both orders. Sigh!

This stall is an institution at the Adam Road Food Centre. I came here for breakfast and it had a long queue of people waiting to place their order. It took about 10 mins to get to the front of the queue and then I realised that the people in front had placed many orders to go.
They are open from daily, from 7am – 5pm, except for Fridays.
Parking is convenient with many open air carpark lots around the food centre.
This stall has a long list of awards garnered over the years.
The stall gives their nasi lemak sets interesting names, such as:
- Flash meal: Most basic meal, with ikan bilis, sunny side up egg, rice, cucumber and sambal belachan.
- Fish meal: Fish meat with and 2 fried pieces of fried tamban fish
- Otak Meal: Fish meal with a piece of otah
- Chicken Wing Meal: Fish meal with a fried chicken wing
- Full House: Chicken Wing Meal with a piece of otah
- Royal Flush: Fish meal with fried chicken wing, a piece of otah and a potato bergedil (potato patty)
- Royal Rumble: Royal flush with fried tamban fish
I ordered the Full House meal, which came with ikan bilis, sunny side up egg, rice, cucumber and sambal belachan, fried chicken wing and a piece of otah.
The stall uses Basmati rice for their nasi lemak. The rice is nice and fragrant. It pairs well with the sambal belachan. The sambal belachan taste sweet in the beginning and the spiciness came after.
The chicken wing’s batter is a little thick, and I would prefer it to be thinner. The chicken wing is alright. Ikan bilis portion is sufficient for my whole meal. Cucumber is a little bitter.
I also ordered two packets for my colleagues and they enjoyed their meals.
Overall, an OK meal.
