Warong M Nasir, Killiney Road

Nasi Padang

This place (69 Killiney Road next to Killiney Kopitiam and two doors away from The Orange Lantern) was mentioned in a recommendation the other day. I was hoping that they would serve some soto ayam, so I was a bit bummed to find that they were serving nasi padang instead.

Nonetheless, I generally liked the food, including the assam pedas, which was a tender fish in a mildly sour sauce, and the gulai daun ubi, or young tapioca leaves in a rich coconut-based gravy. Some of these items still had that characteristic spicy fishiness that often makes Indonesian food a turn-off for me, but I'm starting to appreciate it more and more. One bonus was the simple wooden decor here, which was reminiscient of Made's Warung in Bali.

I happened to be there on last Thursday during the PH, and boy was the beef rendang one of the best I have ever tried. You should try it one day.

Have you tried SINAR PAGI at Circular Road? Judging from the ever long queues during lunchtime, it certainly is one of the best Nasi Padang in town. The Chicken Korma and Sayur Lodeh (mixed vegetables) give the special oommph! Beef Rendang is also very good. Give it a try!

Warong M Nasir? is it owned by the Singapore born artist/musician/composer M Nasir himself?

I ordered a portion of Beef Rendang, Sayur Lodeh (curry vegetables), and 2 Bergedil (Fried Mashed Potato Ball) along with 2 portion of rice for $16.40. Expensive I would say but the chilli paste and the beef rendang is definitely worth it!

it's not opened by the singapore artist najip ali but rather some indonesian family. The food there has always been good. A typical 1 meat 2 vege meal will cost anything from 5-8 dollars. The coffee there is not bad as well. For more picture click here
