I had the most amazing Ayam Bakar Diving in Changi Village. And, it’s been a long time since I last had it. I finally decided to satisfy my craving and made my way across the island to Changi Village.


I was hit by a wave of nostalgia when I saw the same makcik at the stall. I greeted her and ordered my usual – Nasi Ayam Bakar Sambal Loda ($4) and Nasi Ayam Bakar Diving ($4).



The bright hue of the Nasi Ayam Bakar Sambal Lado ($4) tempted me to dive in immediately. The sambal was slightly sweet and was armed with some sourness.

The combination of grilled chicken, sambal and rice really brought me back to the first time that I ever had this. The standard was as good I remembered it to be!



There was some sayur-sayur made from pineapples, onions, green chilli, and black sauce that paired excellently with the flavoured rice.


The dish came with a bowl of yellow soup which the makcik calls ‘sour soup’. It was indeed appetizingly acidic and nicely perfumed with lemongrass.


All the different flavours melded harmoniously and every bite was just irresistible. The heat escalated with each bite, and soon, beads of perspiration formed on my forehead. Wow, this is definitely not for the faint-hearted!



I then moved on to the Nasi Ayam Bakar Diving ($4). The grilled chicken came with sayur-sayur as well. Makcik told me that the 2 plates that I’ve ordered actually share the same ingredients, just that the Sambal Lado has red chilli to make it even spicier.

The Ayam Bakar Diving also came with a green paste which resembled a gravy made from green chillis. The paste was fragrant and spicy, and absolutely delicious with the rice.


I probed makcik again and again on what was in the green paste, to which she cheekily replied “secret”.


This Ayam Diving is one of the more popular stalls in Changi Village. They are used to long queues during peak periods so do plan your trip accordingly!
