A new shop opened at Our Tampines Hub (not mine; our!) basement one and it was rumoured to be the best warung from the famous Arab Street. Or so they say. Don’t ask me who are they.
I queued up, stomach grumbling, can’t wait man! But the queue was sooooo slow. There were about six persons working behind counters but for some reason they seem quite disorganised. I waited in line for 20 minutes at least! This better be good.
When it finally came to my turn, half of the 20 item display were finished. Wahhh.. must be damn nice. Or maybe someone bungkus 10 packets?!
I ordered a fish in yellow curry, a salted fish with petai beans and a spinach dish. And asked them to add my favourite kuah assam pedas. The salted fish and petai is my favourite. Very different style. I like. The vegetables was so so nia and the fish was delicious.
Someone asked me whilst I was eating, “expensive right?” I thought about it, “hmmm.. yah” $7.50 (SGD) for 3 items. And the portions were just enough, so it was a little pricey.
The funny thing was someone else came by and asked me where I got this from. And I replied confidently “Warung, just open at the basement of Our Tampines Hub”. The lady had a bemused look on her face and said “there.. it says rumah makan minang on your plastic bag”.
Minang? What does that mean? The lady shrugged her shoulders and left.
