River Valley Nasi Padang, Zion Road
I've never really been a huge fan of nasi padang, so I never made much effort to come down here (54 Zion Road, 6734-3383) despite all of the praise I've heard about it. Yet a colleague of mine kept telling me about how much his family loves this place, and how his mom will even drink the curry straight. My curiosity was piqued.
And after finally having had it, I can see why this place is so popular - it's the good quality meat. The beef rendang was consistently tender while the curry chicken was super juicy. I don't know if I'd go so far as to drink the curry, but it was refined and rich, while the chili sauce gave it some extra bite.
It's just too bad that my first time having nasi padang was so miserable that it pretty much scarred me for life. As such, I still won't make much of an effort to get this again, but maybe if I had tried this place from the start, I might have ended up being a bigger long-term fan.
