Nice Food in Woodlands. Selera Menanti @ Marsiling Lane Food Centre

Nice Food in Woodlands. Selera Menanti @ Marsiling Lane Food Centre

Feeling famish after crossing back to Singapore from JB, I went to the nearest hawker centre, Marsiling Lane Market & Food Centre for a quick bite. I zeroed in on Selera Menanti Traditional Malay Cuisine stall as it had the longest queue. Tried their soto ayam and loved it. I shall be tasting their menu one by one whenever I come by this way again.

Besides the usual essentials like mee rebus, mee siam, mee soto etc., they also have Indonesian staples like nasi rawan, nasi ambeng, nasi jengagan, nasi sambal goreng (all under SGD5). I would love to try their nasi (rice dishes) but this time I just wanted something light to tide me over till lunch, hence I only ordered a soto ayam.

The SGD3 serving of soto ayam comes with rice cubes, shredded chicken, and bean sprouts in cloudy spicy chicken soup. I added fried beef lungs (paru goreng) for extra SGD1.

The chicken and spice soup was mildly savoury with spice (rempah) flavour. There was a little spicy heat which came from the spoonful of dark sambal chili sauce. The sambal was already spooned into the soup - the customer cannot adjust the taste on her/his own. The taste profile turned out OK for me.

There were several pieces of boiled chicken. The meat was tender but there weren't any chicken flavours - only flavours from the savoury spicy rempah soup.

SGD1 got me several pieces of this spongy savoury fried beef lung (paru goreng). I love this. (I wanted to say Must Try but do recognise that it is an acquired taste.)

This rice cake was beyond my expectation as it was hand made. I expected only generic factory made rice cake (as this is the norm in Singapore hawker centres). I love it that Selera Menanti's rice cake was soft tender and moist with subtle rice taste. (Factory made rice cakes tend to be firm, flavourless, and often felt cold inside as it is tightly compacted.)

The blanched bean sprouts were done just nice - crunchy and juicy sweet without any grassy or earthly taste.

Information for you 👉 Boiled chicken, fried beef lung, soft rice cakes, crunchy bean sprouts, spicy chicken soup and hot sambal chili, all came together very well in this bowl of sota ayam. It's a very tasty light meal for SGD4.

I shall be back to taste other items on the menu as they look so delicious 😋

  1. Ah Keat Pig’s Organ Soup. The Kway Chap is nice. The roast meat beside the Kway Chap stall is not bad too.
