Eating Out: Singapore Chom Chom [188 Bourke St Melbourne, 3000]

Update: Singapore Chom Chom is actually closed due to rent issues. I believe I may have read something about $80,000 of rent not paid over 4 months or something similar. How sad =[

According to Urbanspoon Singapore Chom Chom is now closed?!?! I went a few weeks ago...must check it out next time I'm in the city. I really wanted to go back and try out some more dishes, especially the Nasi Lemak. You get to choose which type of noodles you want to go with your noodle soup.
Nasi Lemak $8.80 [Singapore Chom Chom, City]

Food: 8/10 A little on the salty side for my dish.
Service/Environment: 6.5/10 I wonder if they closed due to hygiene reasons, because I wouldn't be surprised. Also had language barrier problems with staff.
Value: 8/10 Average priced. Nasi Lemak is good value though.
Accessibility. Along tram line. Within walking distance of train station and bus stop. Might be hard to find parking.

Verdict? I want to come back but I don't think that's possible
