Nasi Lemak Senibong (Halal/Kampung Senibong)

Kampung Senibong is a remote Malay village in Permas Jaya overlooking the Strait of Johor and Sembawang. A former fishing village, it is now a thriving Malay seafood village. However, what brings everyone from all over Johor and Singapore is Nasi Lemak Senibong.

Nasi lemak Senibong is so famous in Johor Bahru (JB) even wikitravel has an entry about it as one of the best Nasi Lemak in JB. Try searching the internet for JB's Best Nasi Lemak and they will point you to Nasi Lemak Senibong. 

But, I must admit that I would say our Punggol Nasi Lemak and Power Nasi Lemak at Boon Lay Market are better in service and taste. I have to wait so long for the other dishes that the Nasi Lemak turn cold and sticky.  However, it is worth a visit for the ambience and experience of eating at a Kelong overlooking Sembawang shipyard. Other than that, it is definitely better to travel to Boon Lay to try Power Nasi Lemak. Still, let me make the introduction.....

Opening Hours : 5 pm to 12:30 am daily

"Burnt" Stingray. Sedap, fresh from the Sea!
Finally, the famous Johor Nasi Lemak after half an hour wait.

Damage : SING20 for 3 plates of Nasi Lemak (RM5 per plate), 
1 Lala, 1 Sting Ray and 3 Coconuts.
(Too expensive and too long the wait in my opinion. 
However, for the experience, it is quite worth the price and trip.)
