Finding my Inner Singaporean at Nasi Lemak Food Republic

Having been to Singapore a number of times, I have come to develop a fondness for chicken rice.  As avid viewers of No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain are aware of, this simple no-frills chicken dish is technically considered one of the well-known dishes of Singapore, a definite must-try when visiting the Lion City.

Feeling a little lonely for hubby, it was with great joy that mom and I came across Nasi Lemak Food Republic in Robinson's Galleria, serving authentic Singaporean cuisine.

Try the Hainanese Chicken Rice set (Php200) for a really tasty meal.

The meal comes with the usual complimentary sauces and dips plus rice as you can see in their counterparts in Singapore.

The Malaysian Satay (Php200) composed of 6 skewsers of a combination of pork and chicken is also a must-try.

We had to order a cup of jasmine rice (Php35) since this didn't come included with the Malaysian Satay meal.

My only complaint would be the aloof servers who seem like they have better things to do with their time than serve you.  Considering we were the first customers of the day, with nary another soul in sight, we found this a little disturbing to say the least.

The food, however, is great!  And for that alone, makes this dining experience worthwhile.

  1. I love chicken rice ever since i first tasted it during my 1 1/2 month stay in Singapore a long, long time ago.

    The sauces, chili and ginger, especially, really complete the food experience.

    I've been planning to try the Singapore Chicken Rice in Cubao but still haven't had the time. Have you tried that one?

  2. @Batangala: Haven't tried that one yet. We're a little too far from Cubao. =)

Breakfast is an indulgence for me.  Mainly because I am super lazy to have breakfast.  But when I do, there is no better start to your morni...
