This is one of the many “nasi padang” shop in Arab street area. This shop actually serves authentic “minangkabau” dishes. The name is “sabar menanti” (wait patiently). When i first heard of the name, I thought, do I have to wait long to get my food, Is it so popular…or it meant to savour great food, u got to eat it patiently..well, I still have no answer but they have some great dishes.
ayam bakar /grilled chicken (in coconut)
reddish succulent rendang (not so overpowering)
sambal goreng pengantin (mixture of lungs,liver, meat cooked- found normally in weddingS)Have tasted better in geylang serai market (ramadan mth)
Overall, not bad, I like the grilled chiken best! Maybe minangkabau food is a bit different than typical local spicylicious nasi padang.
