Nasi and Mee translates to “Rice and Noodles” and they had me at that!!
Nasi and Mee is a breath of fresh air. Located on the Knk Road in Nungambakkam, the place is hard to miss. Thanks to the huge brightly lit Marquee signboard!!
The place is done up in different tones of greens and greys. The huge popart on wall, the small pots of plants over the windows, the aged wooden table, chairs & benches and worn textures mixed with welded metal gives the place a very rough edged look.
The 50+ seater restaurant follows the industrial chic norm to the T.
Their menu, however, is a cheerful mix of Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Thai and Singaporean and street food.
After 15+ visits and trying out almost everything from their menu, here goes the list of items we tried and loved,
