The Coconut Club review image

The Coconut Club

Ann Siang Hill is a street in Chinatown lined with restored shophouses and packed with bars and restaurants, but the Coconut Club is the real standout. They specialize in one thing: nasi lemak, a platter of fluffy coconut rice topped with a fried egg, fried chicken, and a heaping portion of fried peanuts and anchovies. The dish can be found in almost every hawker center in the city, but because Coconut Club uses a special type of rice and a unique strain of coconuts that they milk in-house, theirs really is the best. The restaurant feels a little old-timey in a cool way, like a grandpa at a craps table, and is walk-in only, so try not to go with too many people or just split your group into teams.
