Search for lontong continues...

It's official! East Coast Park Lagoon Food Centre does not have lontong! It's unbelievable that a foodie joint the size of Lagoon Food Centre, does not have a single god damn stall that serves a horribly simple dish made up of rice...

While they didn't have lontong, they had an awesome sandcastle!

The search for lontong continues...

  2. the last time i went to east coast lagoon food centre... was after about 2 weeks of dieting. i decided i could make space for some carbs. after all that time, i ordered mee goreng. but the idiot got mixed up and served nasi goreng instead. i was too hungry and lazy to kick up a fuss about it and have it returned so i just ate it anyway. i hate ikan bilis! and the fried rice had tons of it. argh!

  3. to nekobus: well, not anymore! my mom found lontong near our place. hmm...isn't the chilli for beehoon soup on the side? i cook beehoon soup when i'm sick...

    to shyanne: damn...i would have told him to fuck off. mee doesn't sound anything like nasi! have you satisfied your mee goreng craving?

  14. Hi,

    if you are still looking to try the lontong, the stall by the jetty only sells it on Sundays before 11 am (they have fantastic nasi lemak as well).
