With more than one popular stall specializing in nasi lemak at Changi Village, it is hard to decide which to have. We recommend Mizzy Corner as they serve up a quality plate with freshly made components. Crispy and tender on the inside, the chicken wings here are cooked just right. The batter is not too thick and pairs up perfectly with the sambal. It is a must try when you are here!
