Kedai Makan Muhajirin In Toa Payoh Serves S$1 Nasi Lemak For 34 Years
Inflation and food prices have been soaring due to the pandemic and ongoing war in Ukraine. Nonetheless, there are still little-known places in Singapore with affordable meals if you know where to look.
One such stall is Kedai Makan Muhajirin in Toa Payoh which sells nasi lemak for just S$1. The price of its signature dish has apparently stayed unchanged for the last 34 years despite major events like the Covid-19 pandemic.
Here’s a quick look at what you can feast on for just S$1.
Toa Payoh stall serves S$1 nasi lemak
At Kedai Makan Muhajirin, customers can get a hearty plate of nasi lemak for just S$1 — likely insufficient for a cup of kopi at most coffeeshops.
The dish is apparently topped with cucumber, fried egg, ikan bilis, and sambal — not the fanciest, but still good value for what it’s worth.
Order with fried fish and chicken wings from $1.50
Those who don’t mind paying more can opt for an extra piece of fried fish, which will cost an extra S$0.50.
Alternatively, customers can opt for an extra piece of chicken wing, which will bring the cost of their nasi lemak to S$2.20.
Wanted to cease operations in 2018
According to Singapore Foodie, the stall owner contemplated ceasing operations in 2018 but her husband and customers motivated her to keep going.
As proof of her dedication, a customer shared that the hawkers know their customers’ first names.
Kedai Makan Muhajirin serves around 300 to 500 dishes per day. Consider stopping by to give your own verdict.
