Located at Adam Road Food Centre, Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak specialises in halal rice dishes and fried chicken wings.
I feel that Basmati rice is not right for nasi lemak. But it has the novelty effect.
Should have use the traditional Malaysian rice or Thai rice cooked perfectly to get the separate grains.
The fried chicken wings and ikan kuning are done well. The others like otah, ikan bilis, fried egg are ok.
In nasi lemak, it is the sambal that makes one forgive any short comings, here it fails. It is just the standard sambal.
Service is slowed consideraby by take away orders and by indecisive customers.
Overall, it is the Basmati rice that is the pulling factor.
I won't be joining the queue again.
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!

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.
