a RI friend brought me to a nasi padang eating stall in geylang serai some time ago. i did not have a blog post, so i guess it must have been like 3 years ago (i started blogging in mar2013).
at the time my favourite was river valley nasi padang at zion road. it had been for many years from the time when children were very young. we even ta pao food for large 10+ parties & really relished the curries. river valley nasi padang was expensive, and some thought the curries were too salty. i quite agree. it is closed now. the other place i liked was at the old tanjong pagar railway station. it was also closed.
so i have not had nasi padang at the stalls for a really long time. i did have some at rendervous @ central.
this time the same friend brought me to sinar pagi nasi padang at geyland serai market on 8.9.2015. ^^
i had wanted to try this the last time when i saw the food beautifully displayed & the long queue, but at the time we already had our lunch at the nasi padang stall across sims avenue on the joo chiat side.
well, never too late. another RI friend joined & my friend bought lunch.
the beef tripes curry (top photo) was very good. it was not as salty as river valley nasi padang so on that score i guess it was better.
curry chicken was lovely too! curry was very tasty. somehow in my memory, the yellow & red curry chicken at river valley nasi padang at zion road was still better.
assam fish curry was as good as any.
chilli eggplant was ok, but i think not great. my helper can make it better & tastier.
egg kind of non-descript.
lunch was S$21. actually not cheap, no cheaper, i guess, than river valley nasi padang at zion road.
anyway, company of old friends was great. we chatted about GE2015. & over food i liked and enjoyed.
