It is hard to find a place in Singapore that serves Chicken Corden Bleu. While I do have my own go-to place to settle my cravings for Chicken Corden Bleu, I am always on the search for more places; after all having a few more places to go for a dish surely is better than having less. After I found out that J’s Wok & Grill offera this dish, I had to check them out.
The Beef Fillet on Toast was a start to the food disaster. It tasted rather fine, but it was not really the dish described in the menu. Sure enough, there was melted cheese in it, but the beef fillet was more like minced beef cooked in sauce and spread on a piece of bread that was still rather soft overall despite being slightly charred on the top. We only decided to order this side as it was a chef’s recommendation, however it just does not seem worthy of its title.
The main star (for me at least) was the Chicken Corden Bleu, but it was another big dissapointment looming. It looked promising until I made the first cut and there was absolutely no cheese oozing out of the chicken breast. A Chicken Corden Bleu should not be called a Chicken Corden Bleu if it is just a deep-fried rolled chicken breast with little amounts of cheese. There was no ham in sight, and the cheese did appear in some parts of the rolled chicken breast but barely tasted there and was absent in the rest of the dish. For a Chicken Corden Bleu lover, it just severely lacked the excitement of getting that flowy and stringy cheese upon cutting the fried chicken breast, and the variation of flavours provided by the chicken, ham and cheese was definitely missing. The chicken was not very tender as well, which did not improve the impression of the dish. What improved the impression of the dish however was the tasty mushroom sauce which had lots of mushroom in it and was very fragrant, and the coleslaw was pretty cold which was nice.
