Can't imagine what the reviewer who called the originally Killiney Kopitiam, on Killiney Rd., was thinking. "Dingy"? Not at all; it seemed quite tidy and clean to us. "Offering slop..." Where did this guy eat? We dropped by for lunch. It was bustling; all customers other than us appeared to be locals. Is that the sign of a bad place? I had nasi lemak. It came pre-prepared, wrapped in a banana leaf pyramid. I generally prefer my nasi lemak made for me when I order, but this was pretty darn good. The sauce was tasty and just right-spicy. The ikan bilis was a little bit chewy, rather than the all-too-common rock hard. A small fried fish was a nice additional touch. My companion had chicken curry with rice. I tasted the curry sauce and thought it was outstanding, as did she. Generous amount of meat and potatoes included. My nasi lemak was just a little over S$2;the chicken curry (really, enough for 2) was less than S$6. Service was efficient, if not exactly overflowing with bonhomie. A Singapore institution since 1919, and for good reason.
