Seema Nasi Padang @Ramadan Food Fest 2013
As we welcome the holy month of Ramadan, I would like to begin by wishing all Muslim readers Salam Ramadan 2013 and happy fasting to all Muslims! I had a chance to drop by the famous Bussorah Street Ramadan Food Fest 2013 last week and as per every year; you will always be spoilt for choices when you try to decide what to buy! I’m sure most of you will agree with me ;)
After much contemplation (and my feet were aching from all the walking), I decided to get Nasi Padang and saw a booth – “Seema Nasi Padang” which was not very crowded. I headed to the stall and there were several varieties to choose from – like most Nasi Padang stalls and as you can see from the photo below! Of course, I can’t possibly try everything out so I only bought the Sambal Goreng, Ayam Belado, Beef Rendang and Asam Pedas. And never did regret my decision when I ate it for break fast!
The auntie who took my order was super nice and friendly despite the crowd building up behind me. It was a really nice feeling to buy from such friendly hawkers! My family really loved ALL the food and I might just pop down again to the stall one of these days to try different dishes! Hehe! I must also add that the Beef Rendang is super soft and juicy and I am actually already craving for it again! Oh dear: P
With the yummylicious food and friendly staff there, what more can one asks for! Oh, in case you are wondering where the stall is situated, it’s just along Masjid Sultan. To be more precise, its Stall #T19 and they are only open at 14:00 till 20:00 daily from now till 6th August only. So, do not wait too long to try out their food ok!
I also managed to have a short conversation with the auntie and she told me that they also have a permanent stall in Golden Mile Food Centre. So if for some reason you are not able to go to the Ramadan Fiesta at Arab Street, you can also visit their stall in Golden Mile Food Centre, where they have many more varieties not available at their booth.
Happy Ramadan to all my Muslim friends in Singapore or wherever you are!
