Not that great

This is a food stall in the farmer's market. I used to live in Malaysia & the food is not that great--the nasi goreng & mee goreng were both way too greasy & not all that flavorful. I have definitely had better stateside. The staff was extremely nice & said that it was more singaporean than malay, but I've been to Singapore as well & the food still was not this greasy! I didn't try any meat dishes, so there's still hope, but the menu is EXTREMELY limited.

Great little stall

Location can be quite tricky. It is not easy to find unless you know the area pretty well. \nThis stall is located in the middle of fresh produce market. The service is fast and efficient. After trying out several dishes, my husband and I agree that their Mee Goreing is exceptional. Their other food are average but you can't visit this restaurant without trying out their Ice Cendol. It's fantastic!!\n

Reliable favorite

Slighty exotic menu for the farmer's market never disappoints. The food is always yummy and the people are always friendly. I definitely recommend!

Good food!

I visited on 4/26. We had Laksa and Mee Goreng (vegetarian). Both dishes were very good. The mee goreng had nice flavor and so did the laksa. If there is any criticism of the laksa is the bumbu could be ground more. It fits into Farmer's markey, reminds me of SE asia street food.

Average Food, Great Service

First of all, this restaurant is not easy to find unless you are a local. We never imagine that this restaurant will be located in the middle of a fresh produce market. The ambiance and service are excellent. The food however is quite average. The beef rendang and laksa were below average. The mee goreng was quite original and tasty. The best part of our dinner was the ice Cendol which was exceptionally good.

excellent

This is a favorite of mine and is within walking distance of where I live. The owners of this restaurant are so friendly and have really created a sense of ""family"" with the customers. Mee Goreng is a favorite of all I've spoken with. Awhile back, they had a Saturday special of Lamb Curry that was phenomenal. I hope they expand their menu in the future but for the present, what they have is an excellent example of greatness.

One of my faves...Super Mee Goreng!

The mee goreng noodles are addictive. Kojak salad is also great (fruit, tofu, etc.) Nice family who runs it.

Perfect for Nostalgic Singaporeans

SBL serves up great Singaporean dishes for a decent price. I have to agree with the other reviews - their menu could use some expanding, but that hasn't stopped me from returning again and again for my faves, which are the ""Indo Style"" mee goreng and the beef rendang. The roti prata is ok, but no match for the real thing back home.

Fantastic!!!!!!!

I have tasted lots of wannabes but the food there is authentic and fabulous! From the curry to the laksa, all of which are made to order with fresh veggies, one can escape the usual L.A. food scene. The people there are friendly too.
