@ Warong Nasi Pariaman: 736 North Bridge Road, Singapore 198704
It was our usual Sunday lunch gathering and our friend Jeremy recommended us having Nasi (rice) Padang! Nasi Padang hails from West Sumatra (where the city is known as Padang) in Indonesia. A host of curry and chilli based dishes are displayed behind a glass display and choose which you would like to have to go with steamed rice. Some key padang dishes include beef rendang and gulai nangka (curry jackfruit).
The food is served on small dishes and good for sharing. If you have a bigger crowd, just ask for a double or triple serving.
Warong Nasi Pariaman being an old and renowned eatery, we paid about $10 per person for our meal.
Nasi Campur (campur means to mix in Malay) is also similar to Nasi Padang, where you get to choose from at least 10 to 15 Malay style meat and vegetable dishes. These stalls can be found island wide in Singapore in coffee shops and hawker centres as it’s a staple for lunch or dinner. People usually pick 3 dishes to go with a plate of steamed rice. The portion is good for 1 person. A filling Nasi Campur lunch should set you back at about $4 or probably up to $7 or $8 if you pick more meat/fish dishes.
Who’s up for some curry and spice?
