Here’s another stall that displays the kampong spirit by making their food affordable for all. Prices are capped at $2.50 for most of the items on the menu, even amidst rising costs.

Nurul Delights is a family business that has expanded across Bukit Batok. With three outlets now, Nurul Delights is a hit with the residents. I was headed to the second stall located at Blk 223 Bukit Batok Ave 3, only to find out that it has relocated. The sign on the stall front redirected us to the new location at Blk 217 Bukit Batok, which would only be opened from June 2021. It also directed us to check out their OG stall at Blk 413 Bukit Batok Ave 3. So we did.

This humble Malay food stall doesn’t only have the usual mains like Mee Siam ($2.50), Mee Rebus ($2.50) and Nasi Lemak ($2.50). They also have traditional kueh-kueh and Nasi Padang. Their second stall, Nurul Delight, that is opened right beside the OG stall sells a wider variety of dishes like Laksa ($3.50) and Ayam Penyet ($4.50). However, it is closed until further notice. In light of Ramadan, do follow them on Facebook for more information.

It was the start of the Ramadan season when we visited, and there was a queue during lunch hour. The stall assistants were busy preparing the different items needed for the day, and it was truly a joy to know that the chicken wings were fresh out of the wok!

I had the Lontong, Mee Siam and Nasi Lemak ($2.50 each). The portions were large, in my opinion. They were very generous with the amount of ingredients as well as the chilli sauce. It was surprising, and rare, to see such generous portions, with each bowl filled to the brim, given the low prices.

First up, the Lontong. It’s one of my favourite dishes in Malay cuisine. Their lontong had large pieces of ketupat, vegetables, tau kwa and some crispy deep fried shrimp.

The soup was less viscous that I had expected. However, it did not lose out in the flavours department. In fact, the soup was easier to drink this way! It was sedap!

Next, the Mee Siam. The soup had a spicy tang which was accentuated by the addition of sambal chilli and calamansi. The portion of the beehoon was fit for a king. It would make a really heavy breakfast for anyone. I found myself choking a lot as I ate it due to the really spicy soup. Hence, I would recommend that you have this only if your spice tolerance is high, or request not to have the dollop of sambal on top.

Last but not least, the Nasi Lemak. The simple plate consists of a fried chicken wing, a slice of omelette, coconut rice, a huge dollop of sambal and a slice of cucumber. The chicken wing was not too bad! It was still a little warm on the inside when I had it. The meat was tender and moist, and the crispy skin was great. While the rice was not as lemak, it was still fragrant and had hints of coconut milk.

All in all, Nurul Delights is definitely one of those places that you can get a hearty breakfast without burning a hole in your pocket.
