Hon Ni Kitchen – Bedok’s Best-Kept Secret for Delicious and Affordable Nasi Lemak
May 08, 2023
Hon Ni Kitchen is a hidden gem tucked away in the heart of Bedok. What sets them apart from other nasi lemak stalls is the immense pride that, Jackie, the owner, takes in her food. From frying the chicken wings till golden brown to the making of the otah, Jackie carefully prepares everything to ensure the perfect balance of flavours.
Known for serving some of the best nasi lemak in Singapore, Hon Ni Kitchen is especially proud of their fluffy, fragrant rice. The rice is cooked to perfection with just the right amount of water and coconut milk, giving it a rich, creamy flavour and a delicious fragrance. Every grain of rice is fluffy and does not clump to the others.
The crispy chicken wing is a must-try, with its golden-brown exterior and juicy, tender meat. It’s no wonder that it’s a popular choice among diners. If you’re not a fan of bones in your chicken, you can also opt for the boneless chicken thigh, which is just as delicious and satisfying.
Another standout dish at Hon Ni Kitchen is their house-made otah, which is made with chicken meat instead of the more traditional fish meat. The otah is packed with flavour and spices, and has a satisfyingly silky smooth texture. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the rice, adding a burst of heat to each bite.
Hon Ni Kitchen also serves a house-made sambal chili that complements the rice perfectly. The sweet tang and spiciness of the chilli add layers of complexity, making it a crowd-pleaser even for those who can’t handle too much heat. It is perfect for dipping the crispy chicken wing into or mixing with the fluffy coconut rice.
Hon Ni Kitchen also offers a variety of side dishes such as stir fried long bean, fried bean curd, eggs and more. All of these are equally delicious and go wonderfully with the nasi lemak.
