This is not a scam. There really is a home-based business at Pasir Ris that’s selling Malaysian-style Nasi Lemak for just S$1 per packet.
So if you’re tired of scrolling through the same old options on food delivery platforms or simply want to give mama a break from cooking, perhaps, you can give this a try.
$1 Malaysian-style Nasi Lemak
These little packets of Nasi Lemak are cooked from Ah Miao’s kitchen, which prides itself in homecooked recipes that’ll remind you of your grandma’s cooking.
A fun fact: in countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia, these tiny packets of nasi lemak are fondly known as “Nasi Kucing” or “cat’s food”, a metaphor for the small portions that are akin to the size of feline food.
It is usually wrapped in banana leaves and served to blue-collar and night shift workers, but over here, we can see how many portions of this could offer variety to a dinner party.
Currently, there are three $1 nasi lemaks to choose from. Served on a banana leaf is the Mini-size Sotong Nasi Lemak with fragrant coconut rice, sambal sotong, a side of ikan bilis and egg.
There’s also the $1 Mini-size Shrimp Nasi Lemak and $1 Mini-size Ikan Bilis Nasi Lemak, both with toppings drenched in the same flavourful sauce.
Of course, those with bigger appetites can opt for the Upsize 3-in-1 Nasi Lemak, which features all three ingredients of sotong, ikan bilis and shrimp. Priced at $3, it’s still a steal as compared to eating nasi padang from outside stores.
For those that are interested in ordering, Ah Miao’s Kitchen will be opening pre-orders for the upcoming weekend on 23 and 24 July. However, take note that the business does not provide delivery services.
Orders must be self-collected at Block 527A Pasir Ris Street 51, Singapore 511527, or you can arrange for pick-ups at Pasir Ris MRT.
Time for a nasi lemak party!
