Nasi lemak for S$1 comes wrapped in paper and without a spoon.
According to a TikTok video, the packaging of its S$1 nasi lemak measures about 8.5cm, or about the length of a stapler.
If you prefer to eat your nasi lemak from a “small tub,” you can pay S$0.30 more.
Popcorn chicken and drumlets are also available
There are also more ingredients available for customers who are willing to pay more for their nasi lemak. Prices differ depending on whether the dish is wrapped in paper or in a small tub, just like the basic S$1 nasi lemak. Customers would have to pay S$2 or S$2.30 for a portion of nasi lemak with a drumlet on the side.
Popcorn chicken is also available for S$2.50 or S$2.70 depending on the packaging.
