Operating out of an old school shophouse, Mei Yuen Restaurant specialises in roasted chicken rice.

 

 

 
Roasted chicken and vegetables with rice ($18.50 for 3 pax): Served on a bed of beansprouts, the roasted chicken was not only tender and juicy but the skin was crispy too. Now, that is the difference between a great roast and a decent one, the skin of course. The chicken rice was fluffy and tasty with a hint of garlic. Personally, I prefer chicken rice that isn’t too strong in taste, so this was just right to me, but maybe not so for hardcore fans of chicken rice. My only gripe was that the chili lacked the kick and wasn’t spicy enough. That aside, this was definitely one of the best roasted chicken rice I have had in Singapore.

Whimsical little cafe OK Aug 31, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café | Burgers and Sandwiches

This pretty little (no pun intended) cafe is decorated with wall murals of illustrations from The Little Prince and a collection of books in various languages for your reading pleasure. The cafe is small and sits approximately 15 to 20 people at full capacity.

 
The menu isn’t extensive but savory treats such as quiches and sandwiches are available if you do not have a sweet tooth.

 
Iced Rambutan Tea ($4.50): Freshly brewed tea with a generous helping of canned rambutans and sugar syrup on the side. Though I like the idea of having rambutans in my iced tea and chomping on them, the rambutans do not add much flavour to the tea.

 
Scones ($4.50 for 2): The warm buttery homemade scones comes in two flavours – raisin and umami, and were served with clotted cream and marmalade on the side. Personally, I would have preferred the scones to be less dry and the umami taste to be stronger (there was barely any).

 
Strawberry marshmallow cake ($3.90): The cake was soft and fluffy with pockets of marshmallow in every bite. It may appeal to those who love neapolitan ice cream, but I found it rather forgettable.

Overall, the cafe is worth a visit for fans of The Little Prince and for those who are looking to laze the afternoon away at cafe with an unusual concept. Reasonable pricing and friendly service staff is a plus too!

Food with a French twist Smile Aug 22, 2013

Mushroom cappuccino ($4.90) Rich, earthy soup made with mushrooms and topped with a salty foam. I would have enjoyed this hearty soup more if not for the tinge of sourness.

 
Saveur’s pasta ($4.90 for entree, $6.90 for main): Saveur’s take on our local bak chor mee (minced meat noodles). Capellini pasta tossed with chili oil, fine-chopped konbu and sakura ebi with minced pork sauce. The pasta was cooked al dente and coated with just the right amount of sauce. For some strange reasons, the mushy meat sauce was reminiscent of a chicken mayo spread. That aside, the dried shrimps added a nice bite to the dish without overpowering it like how the usual hei bi (dried shrimps) can be.

 
Rib eye steak ($22.90 for 180g): Rib eye steak served on truffle mash. Well seasoned and flavourful, the steak was a decent considering the price. Unfortunately, it was a little too rare for medium rare doneness. Though it was a steak dish, the truffle mash stole the limelight. Creamy and fragrant, it certainly was a delight just eating it on its own.

 
Beef tenderloin ($24.90): Beef tenderloin with potato au gratin (pronounced grah-tan), carrot puree, button mushrooms, red radish, baby carrot and beef jus. The steak was well seasoned and sufficiently rested, evident in the juices that was retained despite being cooked to medium doneness (as requested by my friend).

 
Strawberries and cream ($9.90): Basil ice cream, macerated strawberries, meringues and strawberry leather. The basil ice cream paired surprisingly well with the sweet strawberries and doubled up as a palate cleanser too. The meringues were a nice play on the textures, and I particularly liked it with the strawberry leather.

Overall, this is the place to go for decent food with a French twist in a relaxed and casual setting. Not forgetting warm service and affordable prices too. That said, do go to the restaurant with reasonable expectations and bear in mind the amount you are paying.

Shoyu ramen with butter corn ($12.50 for half size shoyu + $1.50 for egg): The curly, al dente egg noodles picked up the savoury soup remarkably well and I was pleased to find that the kee taste wasn’t overpowering. The thin slices of tender and flavourful chashu were a delight, but I can’t say the same for the flavoured egg. The egg was a little overcooked and I would have definitely preferred it to have a soft runny yolk and slightly firm( but not rigid) egg whites. The ramen is finished off with Japanese bamboo shoots and spring onions which complements the buttery (yet light on the palate) soup perfectly.
