Lucky Plaza Nasi Lemak

This unpretentious nasi lemak comes from a stall located in the basement of Lucky Plaza (not the Asian Food Mall but the less posh place next to the winter wear shop). I normally have this for breakfast, but the fried chicken wings are often not ready at that hour.

This is lunch. They have several set meals for you to choose from. This is set 2 at $3.50 only (no 20centts “surcharge” for taking away). There’s chicken wing, ikan kuning, otah and egg omelette. Not gourmet stuff but satisfying and tasty.

Lobster Salad Wraps

I just discovered something delicious and economical that you can easily make at home. First, you’ll need to get some “lobster salad” from Sheng Siong. It’s not real lobster, so the price is quite reasonable.

Also grab some lettuce or some other vegetable that can be eaten uncooked. Make sure it’s nice, fresh and well-washed.

Finally, you’d need your wraps. Any flavour will do. They come in potato, garlic, wholemeal etc.

Next thing to do is to put your ingredients into the wrap and roll.

You can add some tomatoes or sliced capsicum to it. Further seasoning is unnecessary. It’s really yummy. Try it.

Galilee Spaghetti

I’ve heard and seen a lot of bad reviews with regards to this “library” food. I took these opinions seriously at first, but something didn’t seem right. So many folks at the library were ordering their spaghetti.

I’ve tried out the seafood spaghetti at 2 different outlets. One at Queenstown and one at Sengkang. The one at Sengkang is a bit better, but they both tasted OK. In fact, I would rate the one at Sengkang (inside Compasspoint) as good. The sauce is sweet and flavourful. The seafood is real. The spaghetti may not quite appeal to those who want it al dente.

For $7.50 (probably for a limited period only) you get a spaghetti and a Snapple. A good deal. Probably even better than some of the stuff they serve at the foodcourt on the same floor.

So the next time you go to the library, don’t hesitate to try out the food at Cafe Galilee. It’s actually not bad at all.
