“Where’s The Sambal?” — Angmoh Stirs Online War By Claiming SG’s Nasi Lemak Is Better Than Malaysia’s

Another day, another food war.

Being so geographically close to each other, it’s no wonder than Malaysians and Singaporeans often squabble over who has better currency, standard of living, and most importantly, food.

A TikTok user named @cececourtney recently uploaded a video where she claimed that Singapore had a better version of nasi lemak, much to the chagrin of Malaysian netizens.

In the 7-second clip, it shows a plate of plate of the so-called nasi lemak which comes with sauteed vegetables, some curry sauce on the rice, and a huge piece of fried chicken.

To top it all off, @cececourtney wrote the following as the caption: “Let’s admit it Singapore nasi lemak is nicer than Malaysia nasi lemak.”

Malaysians were later quick to point out that real nasi lemak had a hard-boiled egg, ikan bilis, cucumbers, and sambal — ingredients which were missing from the video.

They also said that one cannot call a dish nasi lemak if it were to be devoid of the sambal’s spiciness and believed that @cececourtney could’ve mistaken it for nasi berlauk instead.

They also joked that she might have inadvertently started yet another food war between Malaysians and Singaporeans.
