Quan Jia Fu (全佳福) Nasi Lemak – Ge Tai Singer Opens A Hawker Stall
With our local food going game strong over the recent years, popular ge tai singer Cheng Ze (承泽) joins in the hawker squad and opens Quan Jia Fu Nasi Lemak (全佳福) in Golden Mile Food Centre, or better known as army’s market.
What got him started? One day, he was having mee rebus and saw that the cook was actually a foreigner. He didn’t want our local heritage food to disappear or be taken over by foreign workers, so he was inspired and worked with two other partners to set up a nasi lemak stall (because that’s his favourite hawker food).
It may seem like a simple and unassuming stall but much thought has been put into it. For one, his plates are all the old school metal plates which we used in the past. Also, he hung old vintage milo tin on the ceiling and use it as his cash box. So old school can!
One of the partners used to be a cook in a nasi lemak stall in Boon Lay so she takes care of all the cooking while the two handsome young man do most of the serving (which I am sure it’s camera worthy). Its rice is milder in coconut milk flavour, but light and fluffy.
What really stands out is the sambal, which has a strong taste of dried shrimp in the blend. It’s really robust in flavours, spicy with a strong presence of shallots. The fried chicken is crispy which goes well with the sambal dip and I paired it with a curry vegetables and egg omelette too.
