Old Bibik’s Nasi Rendang (Lavender Food Square)
Located within Lavender Food Square, Old Bibik Nasi Rendang’s stall serves Rendang prepared daily from scratch, using a grandmother’s secret recipe, with fresh ingredients and at wallet-friendly prices.
One of the owners, Adrian, got the rendang recipe from his grandmother’s secret collection that has been handed down from generation to generation, so he was eager to share the tasty goodness of home-cooked Rendang.
Adrian used to work as a marketing manager in the Tourism industry before leaving to set up a travel photography company. Fueled by his passion to serve hearty portions of good Rendang to his customers, he roped in his old army buddy, Ah Wee, who used to work as a business analyst in the semiconductor industry and dived headlong into the F&B business. They were brave, although both of them have fried no more than 10 eggs combined!
Old Bibik’s Nasi Rendang features MSG-free Chicken and Beef Rendang with an optional side dish of Peranakan Stir-Fried Long Beans with Sambal Belacan and Dried Shrimps. All the dishes are prepared daily using fresh ingredients and manually-blended spices, the meats are well-marinated before being slow-cooked to perfection. The result is fork-tender meat that has been thoroughly infused with the rich flavour of the spices.
Each set meal is a hearty serving complete with papadums, egg, cucumber slices and rice. Chicken Rendang Set costs $4, Beef Rendang Set costs $5 and a Chicken & Beef Combo Set costs $6. Ala Carte Chicken Rendang costs $5 (small) or $10 (large); Beef Rendang costs $6 (small) or $12 (large).
