Pak Mandor Nasi Lemak @ Yishun Street 61 - Cheap & Good Nasi Lemak In Yishun
So it is no more a secret there is a hidden gem selling Nasi Lemak in Yishun. Residents in Yishun should be familiar with Pak Mandor Nasi Lemak at Yishun Street 61. Not only is the nasi lemak popular in the neighbourhood, it is also delicious and value for money.
Hidden inside an unassuming coffeeshop at block 645, I ordered a plate of Nasi Lemak for only three dollars. For three dollars, you get to pick 4 items. I chose the egg, ikan bilis, fish cake and chicken wing to go along with the green coloured rice. The rice which has been infused with pandan and coconut milk, is fragrant and fluffy.
Besides the fragrant rice, the chicken wing and chilli sauce stood out too. The deep-fried chicken though slightly on the dry side, is very crispy. You can hear the crackling sound aloud when you bite into it. The chilli sauce also complements the nasi lemak. It has the right balance, not too sweet or spicy.
By the way, I heard that the stall usually sold out by 12pm. So do be there early if you do not want to be disappointed.
