Warong Nasi Pariaman could be the longest-surviving nasi padang (rice with mixed dishes; originating from the city of Padang in West Sumatra, Indonesia) stall in Singapore. The stall, however, is more famous for another reason: its authentic Padang dishes led by its beef rendang. A family-run business, Warong Nasi Pariaman has been serving nasi padang since 1948. It is located at a shopouse at 738 North Bridge Road, at the corner of North Bridge Road and Kandahar Street, near the Sultan Mosque.



Warong Nasi Pariaman began in 1948 as a warong (coffeeshop) at the corner of Kandahar Street, set up by Mr Isrin. Pariaman is the name of a city in West Sumatra, where padang food hails. Padang food constitutes white rice that is eaten with a variety of pre-cooked dishes and condiments. Padang dishes are richly flavoured with coconut oil, lime, fresh chillies, lemongrass and lengkuas (galangal root). The coffeeshop has remained at the same corner of Kandahar Street, but Isrin has since retired. The business has been passed on to his wife and children.



In 1992, the stall was reported to prepare between 50 and 60 kg of rice a day. Besides steaming rice to perfection, the shop also fusses over their ingredients, professing that the ingredients and the way the dishes are prepared remain true to the original recipe when the warong first started. In fact, Hajah Rosnah, who owned the stall in 1992, claimed that in her 47 years of selling Padang food, she had never once let anyone else take charge of the ingredients.

The preparation of the food at Warong Nasi Pariaman begins early at 4 am and all dishes are ready by 10 am. All cooking is done at their house nearby, and the food is transported in a van to the stall. Before the family acquired the van, the food used to be ferried over in a tricycle.

The signature dish of Warong Nasi Pariaman is the ayam bakar (barbequed chicken served in a mildly spicy thick coconut-milk gravy). Other specialties are the beef rendang (simmered beef cooked in spices, chilli and coconut mild), ikanbakar (barbequed fish marinated in tamarind-based sauce, grilled over charcoal and served with sweet black soya sauce, onion, rings, green chillies and lime) and the sambal goreng (a mixture of long beans, soy patties known as tempeh, and fried beancurd).
