Pak Mandor – Undoubtedly The Best Nasi Lemak in Yishun
A reader recommended Pak Mandor, a 100% Muslim-owned coffeeshop stall in Yishun that sells very good nasi lemak. This is one of the nasi lemak stalls that hasn’t received wide coverage online. Even so, Pak Mandor is very well known by those living in the area.
Coconut rice, sambal chilli, anchovies are the key ingredients in a good plate of nasi lemak. This simple everyday meal is loved by many Singaporeans. It started off as a farmer’s meal, but now, there are so many creative variants of this dish and ingredients such as lobster and big fried sotong are being added to create these variants.
But sometimes, we just need a simple and humble plate of nasi lemak. Pak Mandor offers exactly just that.
Just look at that plate of fluffy nasi lemak that rocks an appealing shade of green. Each mouthful carries a beautiful fragrance of coconut and pandan. For just $3, you will get a good plate of nasi lemak that consists of a chicken wing, kuning fish, egg omelette, anchovies, cucumber, peanuts and sambal chilli.
The flesh from the fried kuning was firm, and the chicken wing was crispy. I liked that the ikan bilis was not too oily. The star was their homemade sambal chilli which was sweet and spicy, just the way I like it. If you’ll like more chilli, just ask for more, and you’ll be given! This is really a hidden gem within Yishun.
Address: Blk 645 Yishun Street 61, Singapore 760645
