Went back to SG for a weekend to attend a wedding, and one of my friends brought me to The Coconut Club.
I was wondering what was that because I wasn’t updated with SG news except for the bigger ones such as Aloysius Pang and Jovina Choi case.
The Coconut Club, located at Ann Siang Hill, is a restaurant serving you hipster Nasi Lemak, and many others.
I arrived there a little late because I was still full from my late heavy breakfast at Geylang Serai area, and there was albeit of queue.
We ordered a plate of Nasi Lemak, the sambal lala, stir fried sambal ladies finger and an extra bowl of coconut rice at the end. We wanted to order the Otak-Otak and the chap chye which was not on the menu. But by the time we got there, it was sold out. Hence the staff recommended us the stir fried sambal ladies finger.
The Nasi Lemak was really great, and goes well with the homemade sambal chili, which was da bomb!. Also, the ikan bilis (fried small fish) was really crispy. I’m not a big fan of peanuts, but the peanuts served was great!
The sambal lala was albeit spicy for me. Maybe I haven’t been eating much spicy food in Japan, hence my threshold for spicy stuff went down. But, it does goes well with the coconut rice they served.
The sambal ladies finger was something not on the menu because the chap chye was sold out. Thankfully, the really nice staff told us that he can help us get a plate of sambal ladies finger instead! We’re like “okay, we’ll get that”, and it was really yummy!
At the end, I wanted to eat some desserts, and my friend recommend me the ‘Kueh Salat’. My eyes beamed when I hear ‘Kueh Salat’. I’m a big fan of ‘Kueh Salat’, and have been eating the ones from Bengawan Solo.
The ‘Kueh Salat’ is not very sweet, and it goes well as a light dessert, unlike the ones from Bengawan Solo.
And much thanks to the staff over at The Coconut Club, they gave it to us on the house when I only saw one piece left on the counter.
I see many food reviews recommending the Cendol, but please do not forget about the ‘Kueh Salat’.
Am definitely recommending the Kueh Salat over the Cendol, because I love Kueh Salat!
