Toa Payoh Stall Serves S$1 Nasi Lemak Even After 2 Years Of Covid-19 Pandemic

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.
