Update: Changi Nasi Lemak has moved out of the coffee shop due to rental issues. Follow their Facebook page for their next location.

Previously, I mentioned that Gorilla Curry is the rebranding of Lao Cai Curry

In this post, I am going to share about Changi Nasi Lemak which is located right next to Gorilla Curry in the same coffee shop at Blk 323 Bukit Batok Street 33. 

Both stalls are actually run by the same family under the same management. The caricature of Lao Cai on the signboard from the previous location now graced the front of the new stall.

Although Changi Nasi Lemak is known for their nasi lemak, I am more interested in their mala fried bee hoon which is something totally new to me.

I ordered the mala fried bee hoon then spontaneously added on a fried chicken wing and a piece of otah. The bill adds up to $4.40.

The fried chicken wing had lost some of its crisp due to transit and condensation in the styrofoam box. I should have pinched a small hole on the cover as an outlet for the hot air to escape. 

But anyway, the fried chicken is still good. Mum tried the wing tip and commented that it is well-marinated and "very different from usual" (she thought I bought it from our usual neighborhood stall).

As for the otah, I am not sure if it is due to the heavier flavors of mala and sambal chili but it does not stand out for me.

I had visualized mala fried bee hoon to be a process of frying bee hoon together with the mala seasoning but while watching the staff pack my order, I realized it was simply smearing a scoop of mala to their regular fried bee hoon.

That is certainly a expectation versus reality situation.

Giving the bee hoon a thorough tossing to mix the mala evenly, I find the mala to be quite legit. The spicy Szechuan peppercorn aroma is there yet it is not too tongue-numbing till you could not taste anything.

Apart from the mala, their sambal chili with ikan bilis and onion is also quite power. If they did not give it to you, please ask for it.

I have not eaten mala-anything before. Well, not even mala xiang guo but I can tell you that this pairing between mala and fried bee hoon is really a match made in heaven.

I am not sure if this combo is a new thing but it is the first time I have heard of it. The person who thought of this is truly a genius!
