I apologise for the bad photography

Thankfully in this instance, there was no case of broken telephone. A friend told me that her friend had the best beef rendang ever at this small little shop along Killiney Road. That same friend then went to eat there and verified that indeed it was the best beef rendang ever. Passing on that piece of information, I told my parents, for this week’s Sunday lunch, we have to go to this small little shop along Killiney Road that has best beef rendang ever. We went and so now I am passing on the message to you: there is this small little shop along Killiney Road has the best beef rendang, ever.

Beef rendang to me is never short of flavour. Depending on the spice composition and coconut milk to meat ratio, there will be slight variations in terms of taste and richness, but one thing for sure is that it will never be bland. More often than not, however, whether in its dry or wet form, beef rendang tends to err on the chewy side despite the long and slow cooking process.

Tenderness is where the beef rendang here places itself second to none. Upon first contact with the fork or spoon, the meat gently peels away with little resistance and is absolutely tender. The “tender” visual of the rendang creates high expectations for its potential tenderness and it does not disappoint as it slowly dissipates as gently chew with spoon grains of hot white rice. An absolute winner.

Ah... Warung Nasir. It used to be at Purvis Street (or one of the parallel streets next to Purvis) and then it moved to SRC by the Padang and finally it settled down at Killiney Road. The food is just as good but the ambience was still the best at Purvis.

The "best"? Wow, this place must have really blown you away. I'll definitely give it a shot, it's bound to be better than the overpriced, overrated one along rivervalley rd.

You've discovered the Warung!

I used to stay v near there. So, you can imagine my weight really went up haha!

Took any chance I had to eat there. After a while, cos it's not exactly the healthiest of food, I made a visit to Warung something of a reward/treat. Hahaha!

So that's where they moved to. I used to go when they were at Liang Seah St in Bugis.
