But hey, the bigger the better right? If you like to take on a food challenge, need a reason to gather your friends for a meal, or are simply curious, this list of giant foods is for you!
Featuring a mountain of blue coconut rice with two whole lobster gratin cut into halves, a bowl of curry chicken and a battered fish fillet. The White Tiffin’s XXL Nasi Lemak (S$49.90) is definitely a dish huge enough to feed a family of four.
Did I not mention that it is further supplemented by sides like hard-boiled eggs, achar, ikan bilis, roasted peanuts, salted egg fish skin crackers, and pappadums? No worries about wastage as every single element in the giant plate are so delectable that you will wipe the dish clean unknowingly!
