Warong Nasi Pariaman

Warong Nasi Pariaman is located at the junction of North Bridge Road and Kandahar Street, at a shopouse at 738 North Bridge Road. It is near the Sultan Mosque. It is one of the oldest nasi padang stall in Singapore, starting its busines in 1948! (thats way way older than me). Nasi Padang is similar to what the chinese know as zi char or economic rice. In addition, Nasi Padang food are know for being cooked with lots of spices, lemon grass, coconut, lime and chilli.

Having such a long history, the stall has a huge loyal customer base. Although there was limited sitting capacity, most people also order takeaway. Judge the queue for yourself this is the takeaway queue. The place was packed when we went over during lunch time.

First visit

This was what we ate during our first visit here.

Second Visit

Third Visit

The food was so delicious that we ate here for the 2nd consecutive working day.

Begedils

Inside the Begedil

Begedils is the malay name for potato patties. One begedil  for each of us. Can’t help that I am crazy about potato, the begedil was delicious and spring onion is a must for this. The Little Teochew Blog has a post on how to cook this.

Ayam Bakar

Ayam Bakar is a must eat at this stall. Ayam Bakar consist of grilled chicken served in a mildly spicy thick coconut milk gravy also know as korma gravy. The chicken is first cooked in the gravy. It is then grilled. Just before serving, gravy is poured over the chicken.

The ayam bakar was sedap(delicious in Malay)! The meat was soft and tender despite being grilled. And the grilling gave different textures to the chicken, crispy on the outside and soft inside. The gravy packed a punch of oomph compliment the chicken and even with rice.

Sambal Goreng

Another signature dish of Warong Nasi Pariaman is the Sambal Goreng. Sambal Goreng is a mixture of long bean, tempeh and fried beancurb. Almost every table had this! Very addictive!

Egg Omelette

Egg Omelette was delicious but it was quite oily.

Mutton Redang

Mutton Redang was soft and tender. Although it was not a signature dish, it would still have been a hit at any other shops. The food here is just too good that the limelight has been cannibalised by other dishes.

Curry Gravy

Teh Tarik

Nothing like a cup of Teh Tarik to end the meal on a good note.

If you are looking for authentic Malay food that packs a punch, Warong Nasi Pariaman is the place to go. Sedap! Their signature dishes are  Ayam Bakar, Sambal Goreng, Ikan Bakar and Beef Redang. Besides being delicious, it is relatively cheap. Cheap and delicious, what more can anyone ask for. Clearly, it is a die die must try place.

Northern Thai Restaurant

The name can be misleading. Its not really a restaurant, there is no air con. Instead Northern Thai Restaurant is located in a coffeeshop.

Northern Thai Restaurant is located in this coffee shop.

Not too long a queue. Order your food, get the number and find a seat. Virtually everyone in this coffee shop are patronising the Northern Thai Restaurant. And the coffeeshop around 80% full during lunch time. Quite an achievement as I felt that it was ulu. Not like its 5minutes walk away from the MRT station.

Menu

Rice $0.50, Northern Thai Special Tom Yam Soup $4.50

Northern Thai Special Tom Yam Soup $4.50

This is quite a unique bowl of tom yam soup. It is cloudy and looks orangey. That reminds me, no chili oil was added. Yet, it was still spicy. There were hints  of basil, lemon grass and chili padi. I was researching online and realised it is likely that coconut milk was added.

Omelette $3.00

The Omelette was shiok too. It was fluffy and ingredients were well spread. The only down side was that beneath the omelette is a layer of oil. But well, for good food, its ok to be unhealthy. At least it was worth it.

Sembawang White Beehoon (Sembawang 白米粉)

Good news, for foodies in the North! Sembawang White Beehoon previously was under-going renovation. Now the renovation has ended and the shop is now open for business! The shop is located directly opposite Sembawang Shopping Centre. It has been featured in several newspapers and magazines. This place is crowded during lunch or dinner time. And it is hard to find parking space.

Interior

Look at the change after the renovation. Now it look so bright, clean and ‘white’.

Queue

Now, there’s a queue system. Waited about 20minutes in this queue. More orderly and fair, allowing customers to make an order prior to getting a seat. Its much better this way from the owners’  and customers’ point of view. For owners, turnabout time is decreased as customers no longer sit down and decide on what to order. For customers already sitting down and eating, no pressure of people standing next to you waiting for you to finish up.

Lime juice $1.50 per mug

Ordered lime juice. Do note, the drink stall is now located at the interior of the stall. So do not order from when you ordering the main dishes as they are two separate entity. Was told that many people tried to ordered drinks when they were ordering the dishes as they did not see the drink stall and assumed that it was now one entity.

Menu

Same old menu =) Glad there was no price increase despite the renovation. Waited for about another 10-20 minutes for the food to arrive after getting a table.

Seafood White Beehoon $7.00

Seafood White Beehoon $7.00

The signature Seafood White Beehoon. The $7 portion is just nice for 2 person to share. The beehoon was cooked with a rich wok-hei flavour, soft and delicious. With generous and fresh ingredients such as prawns, squids, vegetables and pieces of fried egg. The gravy was light yet tasty. Its a simple and light dish that was cooked to perfection. Have never eaten beehoon that was cooked in this way. This is a must order if you come here.

Sambal Chili Sauce (left)

Great Sambal Chili Sauce that is spicy and sour, is not the same as those that are available in the chicken rice. Totally love this sauce! This sauce complements the beehoon well! Of course, the beehoon taste great alone without any sauce.

Bittergourd Omelette (Wet) $5.00

I am  a huge fan of bittergourd. Most of my peers do not like that. I am lucky she do eats that too, hence we can order bittergourd =). This portion might be quite biased. The Bittergourd Omelette taste delicious. The bittergourd was cooked to perfection, it was not hard nor was it too soft. In some eateries, their bittergourds are hard, meaning that it was cooked too quickly. The egg as you can see was not over cooked, it was soft and in small pieces. Great dish, you can see effort was put into cooking this dish.

Egg Toufu with Mixed Vegetable $10.00

This dish was just average as the other 2 dishes were really so awesome that I do not remember any amazing about this dish. Do not be mistaken that this dish is lousy. But I would say that this dish seems abit too costly at $10.00. Making it the most expensive dish for the night.

We might have over ordered for 2 person. Was very full after finishing the meal. A great meal that was light, healthy and delicious. Similar to home cook food as the dishes are so simple and hearty. .In terms of price, it was not expensive, definitely value for money. This place is definitely worth a try for a shop house selling this quality of food, its a rare gem. After eating it, I am sure that you will be craving for their signature Seafood White Beehoon and wish you found out about this shop much earlier.
