$1 Toa Payoh nasi lemak almost closed for good, but you can relax now

In a world where the humble nasi lemak can sell for over $10, it is both life-affirming and faith-restoring that a makcik is still hawking the dish at a tenth of that figure.

Zaliah Ishak’s food stall Kedai Makan Muhajirin has kept the price of its coconut rice with fish, egg, cucumber and sambal chilli at $1 for 32 years.

The popular stall in Toa Payoh almost entered the history books in December though, when their unit at block 18, Lorong 7 shut down.

Owner Zaliah saw it as a chance to retire.
