If you are craving for nasi briyani and you are in the old airport road area, be sure to head straight to Selera Rasa to fulfil your craving. You will leave the place satisfied, tummy-wise and wallet-wise.
Selera Rasa has operating since the early 1980s but they did not sell Nasi Briyani until 10 years ago (fun mindblowing fact below).
Mindblowing fact 1: It’s cheap. Where can you get a plate of rice with meat for only $3.50 per plate?
Mindblowing fact 2: their meat is well marinated and the taste is unforgettable. Their fried chicken are always freshly fried as they serve one tray at a time.
Mindblowing fact 3: Having been around since the early 1980s, they only started to sell Nasi Briyani 10 years ago and the response was so good that they decided to stop selling Nasi Lemak.
Be warned though, the stall only operates for less than 3 hours daily and have a limited amount of food to cater to the long queue. They will close their shop once they have sold out. So be sure to start queuing before 11 am.
We got into the queue and managed to get our Nasi Briyani. Being a fan of mutton and fried chicken, we decided to get the Mutton Nasi Briyani and add on the fried chicken on the side, we were charged a very reasonable $5.50 for the portion.
We were told that the fried chicken is a secret family recipe and is a must-try at the stall.
After settling down, we decided to take our first bite of the mutton and it was easy to chew and spicy enough for our liking. The rice was complimentary with the 2 meat combined with the curry, making it a meal to be remembered.
This is definitely a must-try stall in Singapore and highly recommended by all of us at Localbuzz.sg.
