Established over 50 years ago, Sabar Menanti Restaurant simply means “good things come to those who wait”. This well known Malay restaurant, specialising in Minangkabau cuisine, is located along Kandahar Street in historical Kampong Glam, famous for its Nasi Padang.
Some of the specialities here include the Rendang, filled with chunks of tender beef coated with spices such as Kaffir lime and turmeric leaves, the Bergedil, freshly fried and made using potatoes from Holland, and the Chicken Korma, with its creamy gravy of green chilli and turmeric.
Sabar Menanti Restaurant serves truly authentic Nasi Padang. Most of their dishes are sold out by lunch so do go early, but be prepared to wait, at this extremely popular eatery.
