Nasi Padang in Singapore


Nasi Padang, an Indonesian dish named so for its origins in Padang City, West Sumatra is steamed rice served with an array of choices, up to 12, of pre-cooked dishes. Quite similar, in vein, to the meals of South India, this format allows individual restaurants to explore and offer a diverse variety of the pre-cooked dishes served with the steamed rice that is the only staple of the Nasi Padang. The dishes are generally robust with spices (rendang, sambals), curries made rich with coconut milk, and sometimes tongue-numbingly-hot, with ingredients ranging from squid, fried chicken, potato-patties, anchovies, a mix of vegetables, coconut broth, and a lot more.
