Nasi Lemak

I can't believe it! I've been browsing Fujiwara's Diner for so long and it never dawn on me to take photographs of Singapore's famous dishes! So, this is my first entry on food. *Tada...!* Nasi Lemak! A local malay dish enjoyed by all racial groups in Singapore. This is a standard package containing a fried chicken wing, egg, fried ikan bilis (small tiny fishes on the right), otah (long red piece on the far right), cucumber and chili (must have!!). Otah is made up of a mixture of fish paste and chili. It is then spread onto a long piece of banana leaf and baked over fire. Of course, not forgetting the coconut rice below. Coconut milk, instead of water, is being used to cook the fragrant rice. There are many other side dishes to choose from as well. Such a package only cost S$2.40. Very cheap. One important thing to note is that this is a very high cholesterol meal, as you can see for yourself. Hence, it's not to be taken daily if you don't intend to get fat. Nevertheless, it is a must-try when you come to Singapore!
Note: this was my lunch an hour ago.
