Eighteen Chefs has just opened their latest branch in AMK Hub! Located next to Cathay Cineplex, Eighteen Chefs was basically a self-service restaurant. You write down your order, make a payment at cashier, pick up your cutlery, and wait for your food to be served.
Water is freeflow here, but please help yourself for it.Fresh Mushroom Pasta - $10.80.
Spaghetti in classic French bechamel sauce with fresh mushrooms. My friend said it didn't look like exactly like in the menu. Tasted just average.Chicken Sausage Cheese-Baked Rice - $7.80.
This was taken from their 'Be Your Own Chef' menu. Here, we can pick our base (cheese-baked rice/pasta), sauce, main ingredient, and optional top-up ingredient(s). There are over 8 kinds of sauce (I chose tangy tomato sauce) and 12 kinds of ingredients (I chose chicken sausage). The price of this menu depends on what main ingredient you choose. The combination of tangy tomato sauce and cheese turned to be great. The portion was quite fulfilling, although I found only 3-4 pieces of chicken sausage inside.Waffle with Blueberries & Vanilla Ice Cream - $7.50.
Plain waffle with blueberry sauce, whipped cream, and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The appearance looked not so appetizing yeah? The waffle was super tough, it was very hard to cut with the knife. The amount blueberry sauce poured was also very little. The only thing I enjoyed was the ice cream, which surprisingly combined nicely with blueberry sauce.Black Beauty - $4.90.
Homemade chocolate brownie with chocolate sauce, vanilla, whipped cream, and chocolate ice cream. Apart from its mouthwatering presentation, which was Instagram-worthy, the taste was a disappointment. It strangely tasted like charcoal. Again, the ice cream was the lifesaver of this dish.
Verdict : the desserts here failed to impress me. I think this place is a bit overrated. Many people queue up for it, but even after my dining experience here, I still don't get what's so special about this restaurant. Thankfully no service charge here, because I found that their service was not really friendly and nice. So here is my experience: I mistakenly returned back the entire order sheets when I was paying at the cashier, instead of just mine (I didn't know that I only needed to give them mine, and leave the other sheets on my table). The staff then asked me to return the other sheets back to my table, without saying 'please' at all (which I considered impolite, but not actually rude either)
I know it was my fault, but hello, could you at least use 'please' in your sentence? I would gladly do it if you asked me in a friendly and polite manner. They should improve more on the service.
