January 2020: owner Mandy Yin is expanding next door with a takeaway - Nasi Economy Rice - serving Malaysian rice boxes. Opening April 2020.
New from Sambal Shiok's owner Mandy Yin (and handily just next door), doing for rice what she's already done for laksa. Rice dishes with flavours from Malaysian, Chinese and Indian dishes are available to takeaway.
Harden's survey result
“Fantastic new arrival in N7” – Mandy Yin’s “always crowded, really buzzy” laksa bar (her progression from street-food markets) has ridden a wave of good reviews; fans say, “if you like laksa, chilli and spice, you won’t find anywhere better for this type of money”. That’s the majority view anyway, although there is a minority who feel “it’s not worth the time queueing”, citing “hype” and clumsy cooking (“either they changed chef, or they’re too busy”). There’s also some disagreement over the booking slots policy: supporters say “the 90 minute time allocated for the meal is plenty because the service is so fast”, but others feel “very rushed given the fixed arrival and departure points”.
