The Coco Rice @ Tiong Bahru Food Centre - From Selling Nasi Lemak Cake At Home To Opening A Hawker Stall


Aries Chan made a name for herself with her home-based business - Nasi Lemak Indulgence, selling Nasi Lemak Cake. From the comfort of her home, she has opened a hawker stall - The Coco Rice at Tiong Bahru Food centre selling Blue Pea Nasi Lemak Sets.


The hawker stall offers four different sets. The four sets on the menu are Sambal Lady Finger and Fried Tempeh Bean Curd ($6.90), Fried Chicken Whole Leg with Herbs & Spice ($7.90), Fried Fish with Sambal Kicap Chili ($8.90) and Sambal Prawn with Petai ($9.90). On top of that, you also have the option of adding extra ingredients for an additional cost.

Fried Chicken Whole Leg with Herbs & Spice 4.2/5

I decided to go for the Fried Chicken Whole Leg with Herbs & Spice ($7.90), which comprises blue pea nasi lemak rice, homemade sambal, fried anchovies, fried peanuts, sunny side-up, cucumber and whole fried chicken leg with herbs & spice. I even added a homemade pan-grilled otah patty for an extra $2.



Among the various items on the plate, my favourite is the fragrant and fluffy nasi lemak rice complemented by the sweet and spicy sambal on the side. However, the star has to be the whole fried chicken leg. It is deep-fried to a crispy golden brown accentuated by the marination of the herbs and spices, giving it a lovely aroma.
