A woman on her first trip to Singapore concluded that Nasi Lemak in Kuala Lumpur was better after trying the version of Pongol Nasi Lemak.
The two grab drivers she spoke with also agreed that Malaysian food was probably better than Singaporean food.
TikTok user IvorXianZ said in her video uploaded Monday (July 18th) that he couldn’t believe he came to Singapore for the first time. After she took an iconic clip with Merlion, she showed some conversations with the grab driver.

She asked the first driver which dish she prefers, Singapore or Kuala Lumpur.
“Singapore … wait, KL is better,” said the driver.
She asked the next driver if she liked the food in Penang and Singapore. “Of course, Malaysia … Penan Rojak is different. Nasi Kandar is also different,” said the driver.
When she asked for advice on where to find Nasi Lemak in Singapore, the driver immediately said “Pongol Nasi Lemak”.
Following the driver’s suggestion, Tik Toker went to a restaurant in Jalan Besar and ordered a side dish of vegetables with fried chicken, fried egg, tempura shrimp, and coconut rice.
“1 teaspoon cucumber and 1 teaspoon sambal!” TikToker said the cost of the meal was S $ 8.
Fried chicken was good, but when I tried “sweet” sambal and rice with minimal coconut aroma, her disappointment was obvious.
Then she advised those who wanted to taste the real nasi lemak to “never look back” on a plane to Malaysia.
She showed that she is offering plenty of sambal and ayam goreng for S $ 4 from Kuala Lumpur’s Village Park.
In anticipation of a backlash against her review, TikToker said with more than 4,400 likes, “Angry Singaporeans’ comments come in 3,2,1 …”.
“Unfortunately, they all agree with you,” said Aamos, a TikTok user, who received over 300 likes.
Another netizen said, “Only a teaspoon of sambal is completely unacceptable,” the other 1,940 people agreed.
“Returning to Malaysia is the best advice I’ve ever had,” added TikTok user George to G./TISG.
