#5 The Coconut Club

Singapore has numerous iconic dishes, Nasi Lemak is definitely one such dish (and probably this writer’s favourite) that has stood the test of time.
The founders spent 2 years on their recipes and an equal amount of time sourcing the best coconuts in the world. Time well spent in our opinion for their superb rendition of Nasi Lemak which earned them a Bib Gourmand award from the Michelin Guide. The fluffy coconut rice and artisanal sambal will satisfy lovers of local food. The nasi lemak set here features Coconut Rice, Chicken Leg, Ikan Bilis, Peanuts, Cucumber, Fried Egg and Sambal. For dessert, their version of Chendol is a superb gula melaka heavy rendition that any Malaysian will love.
