´╗┐Malay


Malay food commonly refers to ethnic Malay dishes from Malaysia and Singapore. Dishes include mee rebus, mee soto, mee siam, nasi padang, lontong, gado gado, satay, roti john, mee goreng, nasi goreng and many others. Some of the aforementioned dishes have Indonesian origins - gado gado being the more obvious one. Other dishes in this category may be of Indian-Muslim, Thai or even Pakistani/ Middle-Eastern origins. It is believed the 'siam' in 'mee siam' refers to the early source of the vermicelli noodle used in the dish, Thailand (formerly called Siam) from where it was commonly manufactured and imported during the earlier part of the 20th century. Roti john, has a more recent history. It was purportedly invented in the 1970's by a Malay hawker, Shukor, to cater to the English(hence the 'john') knack for bread and omelette, by combining the two into a 2-in-1 snack-meal. The dish is classified under 'Malay' purely because it is mainly sold by Malay hawkers. The family of Shukor still sells the dish today at a stall in the Serangoon Market & Food Centre.

This is the Golden Mile (Beach Road) hawker centre branch of the Sri Bistari chain of ayam penyet (smashed fried chicken), which is an Indonesian (the owner of Sri Bistari reportedly first discovered the dish in Batam) version of chicken rice where a chicken thigh/wing is pummelled and served on a wooden board with a sweet chilli paste and vegetables. It seems the hype over this dish, starting from the end of last year(2006), has died down somewhat. The verdict: a pretty average fried chicken and passable rice to go with it. The best part was actually the chilli paste, which was spicy yet sweet and had a tinge of garlicky flavour (another of my fav. spices). Update May 2007:On a second trip here, my friend and I both agreed that the standard (specifically the fried chicken) has dropped and is now barely passable. Nope, pummelling a not-so-tasty fried chicken thigh/wing isn't going to make it taste any better. Let's hope they do something about the quality of the chicken. I'd hate to see this dish disappear from the Singapore food scene.

This stall was one of the first competitor to be located close to International Food Stall (IFS). It is diagonally opposite IFS and sells its nasi lemak set for $2 vs IFS's $2.50. I think it's quality is in fact on par with (or even better than) IFS's.

Another competitor to International Food Stall (IFS). It is diagonally opposite IFS and next to Sri Sujana, also a nasi lemak stall. The quality of the nasi lemak here is quite good as well, and lunch time sees office staff from the nearby airport/cargo complexes and aviation parks ordering take-aways of tens of packets. $2.50 gets you a rather large bowl-like plate of coconut-flavoured rice and a meaty chicken wing with a generous dollop of fragrant chilli sauce !
The stall is open 24hrs, which seems to be the only one to do so among the Changi Village nasi lemak stalls.
