I drove to Hoy Fatt Road today try the nasi padang that I've been hearing so much about. True to form the place was packed and there were a number of taxis parked outside. Taxi drivers comb the island all day, so they must surely know a thing or two about where to go for good food.
I rich, spicy flavours of nasi padang and Istimewa Nasi Padang does dish it out. I ordered sambal sotong (squid), sambal eggplant and ladies fingers. The server than heaped a dollop of sambal belachan that was fiery to say the least. After this meal, I was burning up literally and I couldn't even finish off all the sambal.We then ordered a packet for my helper at home. A healthy chunk of sting ray meat and sambal eggplant.
