Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak No.2 - Nevermind MSG lah!

Royal Flush Set ($5) - Chicken Wing, Otah, Potato Begedil, Egg & Ikan Bilis (add $0.20 for takeaway)

Lunch was an impromptu takeaway from the Adam Road Food Centre as colleagues were in the vicinity - We were just discussing about the famous Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak last week, when we were at the popular Boon Lay Power Nasi. You see how Singaporean eats? From the West, we talked about another makan outlet at the Central of the island.

Both of these stalls are perfect for a self-indulgence meal on Nasi Lemak - fresh fried chicken wings, fragrant Basmati rice and savory chili sauce. The anti-climate was the dehydration after that; when we drank like camels after the MSG-laden meals! But i had enjoyed every piece of this decadent meal, once in a boring while. And i licked the chili clean at Selera Rasa today!

There's a story behind the famous Selera Rasa Nasi Lemak that says our Singapore Prime Minister and his guests are often treated to this commoners' fare. I seldom agreed with MSG, but in Selera Rasa, i wanted to. Where it's convenient, and with minimum queue at the stall, do serve me another.
