Nasi Padang @ The Chamber, Singapore (Food rating: 2.5/5)

Saturday, May 16, 2015

Located in Far East Square, you will find a food place that sells Nasi Padang and Nasi Bryani. The Chamber is a good place for lunch with affordable food. 

Nasi Padang is the Malay version of Chinese economical rice or the American version where you select the dishes and pay by the weight of the lunch box.  Nasi Padang originated from Padang, Indonesia, which consist of steamed white rice and a wide variety of meat and vegetable dishes.  Nasi Padang in Singapore-style has been described as healthier choices by blending healthier choices such as less salt and more vegetable dishes.  

The Nasi Bryani is a mixed rice dish originated from the Indian Subcontinent. It was prepared with spices, rice, meat and vegetables. Twice I have been there, I ordered Nasi Padang. I usually ordered one meat and two vegetables dishes. 

Priced at SGD5.50, I ordered one meat dish and two vegetable side dishes. In the Central Business District, it is good to find affordable food in the vicinity. I love the sambal anchovies with roasted peanuts. The fragrance from the deep fried anchovies were delicious. the dish was both sweet and spicy at the same time. (Food rating: 3.5/5)

The Beef Rendang is an Indonesian dish with beef slides simmered for hours with spices. The beef cubes were a little tough and the gravy lacked an ingredient, which I count not identify. The rendang also lacked fragrance despite the thick coconut milk. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

The sambal long beans with beancurd was delectable. The beancurd cubes were well-mixed with the sambal. The only disappointment was that the long beans were too raw. Separating the long beans, the sambal dish was delicious. (Food rating: 2.5/5)

Priced at SGD4.50, I ordered one meat dish - Beef Rendang, one vegetable dish - sambal beancurd with long beans and fish crackers.
