Black Pepper Fish w French Fries and Mashed Potato
Double Up Chicken w Baked Potato & Onion Rings
I'm going to recommend my all-time favourite western resturant - ASTON SPECIALITIES.
So I went to Aston the second time. And yeah, I had an delightful meal there.
Rewinding to the first time I went there was with my best girl friends.
The first reaction of me when they said " Let's go Aston" was "GOD, I'm gotta be broke when I'm out of that resturant."
But haha, I went in ,browsed through the menu.
And the price range was WOW, all pocket friendly prices!
I remember with every main course, it comes with two free side dishes.
So I ordered black pepper fish along with baked potato and mashed potato. (I love potatoes.
It only costs me like less than 10 bucks. Including a can of Pepsi at standard kopitiam pricing $1.50.
I was actually expecting the can of Pepsi to be like $3 per can. LOL
So without the service charge and gst, the whole meal costs me only $11 bucks.
Deep in my heart, I'm actually thanking god for the pocket friendly meal.
So the second time I went there, was with my sister.
We finish catching "House at the end of street" at Plaza Singapura's Golden Village movie theater.
It was quite nice, but the seats we chosed were too close to the screen and we were feeling nauseous after the movie.
Being quite sick, we were scrolling around Plaza Sing, looking for some pocket friendly food for dinner.
So after scrolling around for like 20 minutes, suddenly Aston came to my mind.
So we walked to The Cathay,which was only 5 minutes walk from Plaza Sing.
To our surprise, the queue was not very long. To be precisely, we were the first one in queue.
We were then seated in between two couples. Yes, two couples. One one the left, and one on the right.
(Actually I find it kind of squeezy.)
Ok so I'm quite a loyal fan of the Black pepper fish, so I chose the same dish again, but this time French fries and mash potato. ( French fries also made from potato. -.-)
And my sister chose the DOUBLEx2 up chicken.
Mine was like $9.80, and her's was $11+ I think.
So she got x2 chicken as stated , of different cooking methods.
She got a Teriyaki chicken and hmm... "fried chicken" along with onion rings and baked potato.
(Did you know, Aston's baked potato skin is so easily peeled off! YUMMY.)
We were served quickly in about 10 minutes of waiting time.
Then here comes the irritating climax part.
The woman on my right ,is damn "fish up."
She ordered a prime sirloin well done after we ordered.
So when we were almost finishing our meal (she's also finishing).
She complaint to the manager that the steak is too cooked.
She want it medium rare. WTF, how to uncook it huh auntie?
I was like, Miss, you chose well done, and I heard it.
(Cos I thinking down there, well done not hard meh?)
So she was left with a little piece of around 6cm meat, then she complain and requested for a plate of new one.
Ohmygosh, doesn't her boyfriend or husband feel humiliating for her?
But yeah, Aston actually served her a new plate. And apologise to her.
When we asked for bill, we actually noticed that there was no service charge nor GST.
Then I was like whispering to my sister, "wah, no service charge they still bother to care about her."
In conclusion, Aston has really good service crews. The food at Aston is also extremely pocket friendly and yummy.
