Supper at Ponggol Nasi Lemak Centre, Singapore

My friends kept asking me to try the Ponggol Nasi Lemak and I also heard many good feedback about the food. Since it is highly recommended by my friends, I thought that I should heed their advice and try the popular nasi lemak at Upper Serangoon Road. Nasi Lemak is fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk and pandan leaves. The rice dish is one of the common local delights in Singapore.
At the Ponggol Nasi Lemak Centre, there are also other food stalls. Apart from ordering the rice dish, I also ordered myself a bowl of minced meat with mushroom noodles. The total food tour cost us less than $10.00.

There was a line when I got there to order a plate of Nasi Lemak. When it was my turn, I pointed the side dishes I wanted. I ordered myself a fried chicken drumstick, fried anchovies (ikan bills), otah, shrimp chilli and a sunny-side up. The rice was quite fragrant, However, everything else was not as good as I thought. I wonder if it was because of all the good feedback and recommendations I received from my friends that raised my expectations. I was quite disappointed by the dish. The chicken drumstick was small and the batter was a little bland. The chilli, otah and even the shrimp chilli tasted normal. For the rice dish, the chilli is very important but this was a disappointment. I can say that I ate better ones at other stalls. I think I will skip this stall. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

The AMK Hainanese Abalone Minced Meat Noodles or Bak Chor Mee at Ponggol Nasi Lemak is phenomenal. This is one of the best noodles I have ever eaten. The noodles were perfectly cooked. The sauce seemed to have dark soy sauce and vinegar. The minced pork, lettuce, braised mushroom and meatball were freshly prepared. The soup was also rich and sweet. I enjoyed this bowl of noodles and I can't wait to go the stall for another bowl of noodles. (Food rating: 3.5/5)
