Two words – Nasi Lemak. Wait, make that three – Delicious Nasi Lemak.
The Coconut Club sits along the hippie hangout of Ann Siang Hill. They serve only one main course here, which is, Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng Berempah. Trust me, you wouldn’t want them to have more than one main course for choice because their nasi lemak is the best!
Fun fact: our PM Lee hosted Philippine President Duterte here in December 2016.
Okay before you judge and say “eee why so ex?” I guarantee you it’s worth your every cent. The chicken was nicely seasoned with hints of lemongrass and the skin was so crispy! The meat itself was silky and tender, and you get the best parts of the chicken. The ikan bilis, oh my, the ikan bilis. Super crunchy as if they were made fresh on the spot as you order. The sambal was fragrant and wasn’t too spicy, so please feel free to ask for more sambal to go with the fluffy rice. The whole dish is an art itself. Excellent!
The Coconut Club also comes up with side dish specials that changes every now and then so you don’t go back pairing the same old dishes with your nasi lemak every time. As you can see, the portion is generous. The flavour and spicyness level was to my liking as well. I hope they’ll weave it into their permanent menu.
Ended my meal with their legendary cendol. The brown stuff is gooey goodness of gula melaka! Because it’s so gooey, you’ll end up licking your spoon with every mouth that you take. Super sinful but so worth it!
I feel that The Coconut Club treats their food with pride, giving you nothing but the best. They were bold enough to go ahead with just one main course, and they hit the jackpot. Definitely coming back again to get my nasi lemak fix.
