What this stall sells is Ayam Penyet (smashed fried chicken). What made us eat at this stall was the amazing wooden plate that they used to serve the ayam penyet.
We were lucky to get a taste coz we managed to get the last 2 plates! Since it is smashed fried chicken we ordered, I don’t know why my chicken wasn’t smashed. In the very first place, I wonder why it must be smashed! Either way, the chicken was crispy and tasty. Maybe I was too hungry! 😛 Must go for a 2nd round to truly appreciate the taste.
My advice is go early! They usually sell out by 1 or 2pm.

It’s on the 2nd floor of Amoy Street Food Centre. It’s the staircase that’s next to the POSB ATM. Another clue would be that this nasi lemak is just next to the “famous” lor mee @ Amoy (I felt that the standard of this lor mee has deterioriated so much that I will never patronise it again!).
If you ever want to eat the nasi lemak at this stall, please go early like 11.30am (if your boss lets you go) or 12.30 latest. After that, you can simply see the uncle or auntie tell you, “Sorry, no more rice!”
The nasi lemak is really ordinary at this stall. What stands out most is their fried chicken wing which is crispy and tasty and if you’re lucky, hot from the wok!
Oh, they are one of those stalls where you can either take the set nasi lemak or make your own choices.

This is a one-woman operation, from the making of the wellseasoned char siew and wonton to the cooking and selling. The owner is never flustered, even when she gets a long queue at lunch time. You not only get a smile from her, you also get 10, yes 10, wontons, albeit with more skin than filling, but they taste pretty good. The chilli sauce is just so-so though. And all these from S$2.50 onwards.
