Discovered Nanyang Cafe in Rundle Mall.
It’s located in Rundle Mall, accessible from the food court of David Jones.
They serve a variety of Malaysian cuisines. If you crave of Malaysian food in Adelaide, this is one of the Malaysian eatery that you can visit but do not expect Sarawak Laksa or Sarawak specialty here though.
Hainan chicken rice(AUD8)
Chicken Laksa(AUD8) with extra chili. If you can’t stand the spiciness, don’t ask for extra chili, it’s very spicy.
This place is always packed during lunch hour. So this means the food is good enough, you’ll never go wrong with the crowd.
By the way, it’s not halal, they do serve pork.

Alex Eating House is located at Beach Road in Bugis.
They seem to be specialized in roast duck.
Decided to had our lunch here… When you’re there, definitely you’ll order the duck dish.
Roasted Duck and Char Siew Rice (SGD4).
Char Siew Wan Ton Noodle (SGD4).
Roasted Duck Noodle (SGD4).
I don’t guarantee that it’s nice. It’s up to individual taste but personally I think that there’s better ones out there. However, the pricing and portion wasn’t that bad.
This is going to be the first post of food we had in Singapore from our trip not long ago. Do expect more to come.
Went to Nando’s at Bugis Junction for lunch on the first day in Singapore.
It was packed. It took quite a long time for the food to be served too. Even the bill took quite a long time to come. Too many people.
The signature sauces of Nando’s, without these, it’s not Nando’s:
Tomato Sauce and Garlic Peri-Peri.
Extra Hot Peri-Peri and Hot Peri-Peri.
Bottles of sauces as decorations.
Ordered 1/2 Chicken with Mediterranean Rice (SGD18.90), Lemon & Herbs. The chicken was tender and juicy. Just did not expect frozen veggies were used for the rice.
Soft drink, Coke(SGD2.90)
Supposed to be a quick lunch and turned out to be quite a long one. Finally got to taste Nando’s.
