My first experience with Nasi Padang was in the 70s at the Rendezvous Restaurant. For a long time, my impression of Nasi Padang was limited to dining experiences at a few different places where I later realized were not representative of authentic Nasi Padang as compared to what it is like in Padang, Sumatra. I noticed the version in Singapore too, in general, tends to lean towards a stronger and fiery flavor. Many times the line between Nasi Padang and Nasi Melayu is blurred. This remains one of my favourite cuisines and I am always on a look out for new Nasi Padang eateries.
