They have expanded their business by opening a few outlets across the city.

Famous for their grilled chicken leg marinated in traditional home-made Taliwang red chilli and chilli padi sauce.

I find it interesting with the taste that’s more on the sweet side, probably because of the sauce.

Paired with sunny side egg, anchovies, peanut, sambal and rice infused with fresh undiluted coconut cream.

Back to Nasi Lemak Ayam Taliwang at Novena United Square food court for a second time!

This time, I was determined to try the Nasi Lemak Ayam Taliwang ($6.90)! Arrived early slightly before the lunch hour crowd to order. However, the wait for the food was still quite long at almost 20 minutes! So if you wish to eat this, better head here early!

Like the previous nasi lemak chicken wing set, the nasi lemak rice was served pipping hot and super fragrant! I was initially afraid that the Taliwang sauce will be too spicy (since it was 3 chilli spice level), but it turned out to be pretty mild to me . The chilli resembles the sambal chilli, that is citrusy and spicy! My favourite kind of chilli! Making a mental note to try to request for more chilli next time!

As for the chicken leg, it was tender and soft, however I felt that the chicken leg portion was quite small? Like I felt that I had to ration the meat to eat with the rice, if not I would not have much meat to last for the whole meal! As for the ikan bilis and peanuts, the ikan bilis seemed to be OVERLY FRIED this time round. Super dark brown in colour and hard, hence I didnt eat more than 2 pieces of it!

Chanced upon Nasi Lemak Ayam Taliwang at Novena United Square food court accidentally. Saw the iconic chicken logo and michelin guide stamp and knew i had to try it.

Decided to get the chicken wing set ($5.50) before i realised this was the famous nasi lemak ayam taliwang i wanted to try at yishun hawker after seeing it on zermatt’s youtube video! But argh too late, order already put through! Making a mental note to try the $6.90 set the next time (refer to last photo for the best signature items)!

But nevertheless, this basic chicken wing nasi lemak set was still 100/100! YES, it was so freaking good i daresay it is my top favourite nasi lemak in Singapore now!

What i like about the food is that they were all served hot! Chicken wing and begedil were all hot! But it could also be because i arrived early at early lunch timing!

The fried chicken wing was crispy and so juicy and very well seasoned! Dirtying 8 fingers to eat this was all worth the effort!

I also love the sunny side up egg with the oozy egg yolk! Never a fan of overcooked eggs that other nasi lemak stalls sell!

The peanuts and ikan bilis were also super crispy!

And as for the basic ingredients to evaluate whether a nasi lemak is good - the rice and sambal chilli sauce was on point! The rice was fluffy and fragrant, and the looks of it kinda reminds me of chicken rice, but it tastes just like nasi lemak!

Scrapped clean my plate of nasi lemak. This is a plate of nasi lemak that is worth eating! 👏With the food dynasty card, you get an additional 10% discount so it only costs $4.95!

Signature taliwang set @ $6.20

The chicken was really tasty, super soft and juicy and there's a nice grilled taste to it as well. Goes super well with the chilli sauce which leaves my stomach churning for a bit which I don't mind as I enjoy the spiciness of it.

Extra chilli is given for the rice which is on the bland side, almost no coconut taste at all.

A bit expensive in my opinion cuz other than the chicken the rest of the ingredients (egg, ikan bilis peanuts, cucumbers) are super basic. Also noticed from the previous posts that the price has significantly increased over the past two years.

But I'll still go back to try other flavours and then see how after that.

I love the presentation on the plate: a mound of fragrant coconut rice topped with a wobbly fried egg is accompanied by the grilled chicken leg, tempe, peanuts with anchovies, cucumber slices and sambal chili.
.
The aromatic flavors of the sweet smelling coconut rice is further accentuated by the square piece of banana leaf it seats on.

This is the nearest place from my house that I will visit when I craving for Indonesia’s chilli.
The chicken was tender, topped with homemade chilli (very shiok) and served with frangant nasi lemak.
And I asked for extra 2 type of chilli to served with, Coz I’m big fan of chilli 😆.
💰$5.5.
