Spize is legendary as a clubber's post-clubbing paradise, not just because its super near Zouk, but also because its wonderful food is good enough to wake u up from a drunken stupor.
This was my second visit, and on the first i'd had an amazing fried rice with prawns that just stayed with me for the rest of the day - i'd eaten it at 4am. That taste and the memory drove me to bring my friends back. The flavour was full, the fried rice was fragrant and just nice, the eggs were so well fried, and the prawns were so fresh and succulent. All that for under 6 bucks (i think?) and it was just amazing. Their Teh O Ice Limau was the bomb too, although it was a little too gigantic for people had who been drinking for most of the night that'd just past.
This time around, we ordered their chicken chop fried rice to share, and drinks for each person. Their chicken chop fried rice came looking so pretty I took my time to take pictures of it with each person's phones and cameras. Then we ate. And it was amazing. My friends weren't hungry and didn't want to eat, but one little spoonful had them going back for more. I just savoured the well-fried rice, the succulent chicken chop, and the fresh veggies that made it less jelat.
Drinks-wise, my friends' coconuts were fresh and sweet too, and my Teh Haliah was very Haliah - very spicy and kept me warm throughout then night. Good for people who like their ginger drinks
The ambience is very supper-place too, but not too difficult to talk. We sat inside and still managed to talk easily, and it was surprisingly not too hot despite the fact that we were sitting right outside the kitchen. Other seats available outside were right next to the road, but that's part of the authentic experience of eating at singapore supperplaces too
My only quip: the store is so orangey! haha Whets the appetite though
I'll definitely be back again next time, whether or not I'm going to zouk.
