When you’re in Malaysia, I bet all my assets that when you see a Marrybrown outlet, you’d go in and order a few plates of their ‘nasi lemak’. Because where else can you find rice in a fast-food chain?
However, do you know that there are apparently two Marrybrown outlets in Singapore, too?

However, if you’re dying to have nasi lemak in a fast-food chain and don’t want to travel so far, you can now head to Jollibee.
And I’m not talking about some crappy nasi lemak burger.

Not the First Nasi Lemak by Jollibee
If you think Jollibee Singapore has just come out with this for the Singapore market, you might be sorely disappointed because two years ago, they appeared to have the exact same thing in Brunei, albeit at a lower price (currency for Singapore and Brunei is the same):

And is it just me, or the chicken drumstick looks unusually large for the Singapore version?
