Due to the high cost of living and inflation, it can be difficult to locate affordable food in Singapore. However, a home-based food business located in Woodlands has gained immense popularity on social media due to their $1 Nasi Lemak. The business has gained close to 10,000 followers on TikTok, with one of its videos receiving over 200,000 views. With such budget-friendly options, it is not surprising that they have already been sold out for the entire month of March.
The classic packet of nasi lemak includes rice, egg omelette, fried peanuts, ikan bilis, and sambal chili. It is worth noting that it takes approximately five hours to prepare! They have also included extra side options like chicken drumsticks or popcorn chicken. Customers can be assured that they are getting good value for their money here.
Despite the immense popularity, there have been customers who have expressed their dissatisfaction since they can only place orders on the weekends and they might not even be able to secure their orders due to high demand. Nevertheless, others have shown support for the business, hoping that it will one day be able to keep up with the orders and expand its operations.
