Listen to this week’s mouth-watering episode here!
Our Katong Boy & resident Hot Dog Guy Kelly Koh is back this week and taking us back to his home turf with his favourite place for the food he grew up with, the flavours he knows and loves – Nasi Padang. Specifically, Nor’s Nasi Padang at the famous Soy Eu Tua Coffeeshop along East Coast Road.
Kelly tells the story of how he first discovered Nor’s. In true Singapore style, the long queue caught his attention and after checking the spread out and seeing the begedil, he knew he had to get in line for some of that deep-fried potato goodness. Since then, he has never looked back and he goes at least once a fortnight for his Nasi Padang fix.
The begedil alone are worth the trip because they are plump, packed with flavour, but Kelly also recommends the curry chicken, udang (prawn) and the sayur lemak (coconut-curried veggies)to eat with the rice. He also appreciates how friendly the guy there is – He always has a cheerful greeting for you. It’s great to eat at a place that’s not part of a faceless machine, but one with heart & soul and that warm way of making that meal all the better.
