Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak @ Boon Lay Place Food Village


By now most of you may have known that I have been relocated to the west of Singapore. This means I get to explore more food options that are available in the west side of Singapore. One of these places I wanted check out for the longest time is Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak. Its popularity has been heard even all the way from the east but I have never made that long journey. Cut the story short, I was at the stall itself to check out how power this so called legendary nasi lemak is a couple of weeks ago.

The first thing I observed when I reached there around 6pm is the snaking long queue of customers eagerly waiting to place their order. The stall actually sells quite a lot of stuff besides their nasi lemak. I was actually at a lost in how I should place my order. Lucky they have a a couple of ready set meals for easy ordering.

I think I ordered the Chicken Set Meal B ($3) which comes with a chicken wing, a fried egg, ikan bilis. I added on a piece of Otah ($1) to complete my meal. The chicken was well marinated and deep fried to a nice crisp that is very enjoyable. However it is not as fat and juicy which I would prefer. The rice was fragrant with the nice coconut aroma. The star has to the sweet chilli that complemented the nasi lemak very much.

Overall I felt that Boon Lay Power Nasi Lemak is above average one of the better ones around but definitely not the best. Why is it so power? Probably has to do with its chilli and its reasonable pricing. Unless I am in the vicinity, I would not make all the way just to have it.
