For traditional coconut rice Singapore meals, one of the best places is Wang Nasi Lemak restaurant within Changi Airport Terminal 1, at 80 Airport Boulevard. (UPDATE 2022: THE RESTAURANT HAS CLOSED)
As the outlet’s name suggests, they specialize in traditional coconut rice (Nasi Lemak) dishes.
Visiting the restaurant, which is part of the Wang Cafe chain, your gourmet adventure starts with the rice. In addition to the coconut rice, you can choose from three additional flavours of rice – Nasi Kuning (turmeric rice), Nasi Kerabu (butterfly pea flower rice), or Nasi Ulam (rice with herbs).
Each of these alternatives from the Malay cuisine is naturally seasoned with spices and herbs for an authentic taste.
The rice is wonderfully paired with the outlet’s specially marinated chicken thigh (a choice of grilled, fried, and in curry), tender beef rendang, or fish fillet.
Popular sides on the restaurant menu include, for example, ikan bilis & peanuts and a specially blended version of sambal chilli.
