Sunny side ups

Sunny side ups

 
Was planning to go to another café for brunch, but that place was packed to the brim.

We then chanced upon this café and after glancing through the menu, our hungry tummies decided for us. We stayed.

The picture shows my order for today. Part of their all day breakfast food offerings.

Sunny side ups served on thick toast, grilled ham, cheddar, smashed avocado. I do not like it.

The bread was soggy and I was surprised that despite its state, it was still difficult to slice. Perhaps the knife was blunt.

Cockles fried with garlic

Cockles fried with garlic

 
This is a subsidiary of the more popular and well-known outlet at Hitachi tower (Raffles place).

This dish was ordered to accompany drinks.

Personally disappointed and not impressed. They served it with sambal chilli by the side, which we felt were not suitable. They stir-fried the full cockles with garlic but not much of the taste went to the shellfish within.

Saddest part was some of the cockles were stale sad

Service staff standards were divided. A few were friendly and helpful but the rest pretended not to see when you already met their line of sight.

Marmite Superior Chix Wings

Marmite Superior Chix Wings

 
I must praise the staff here for their consistent friendly service. Very hospitable experience.

Dian Xiao Er here has its interior styled in the cheena ancient setting.

For this dish as seen in the picture, I felt a little cheated. The menu said its chicken wings but all that came was drumlets.

They stripped the drumlets midway and the effect is that of a meatier look. Taste was good. If you enjoy the taste of marmite, you have to try this. The meat was tender and due to the stripping of the meat and skin, it is much easier to eat.

Lunch on a work day Cry Dec 27, 2013

Mee Sua and Pig Liver in soup

Mee Sua and Pig Liver in soup

 
My office is now near this area and upon a colleague's suggestion, we decided to travel to Tai Seng for lunch.

As expected, the place is packed as it was lunch time.

Ordering is via an iPad tucked neatly in a custom-made drawer under the table surface.

Service was relatively slow today and they forgot a few of the food items we ordered.

I had pig's liver in soup with mee sua today. The soup was heavily peppered but I am fine for I enjoy the taste of pepper. The liver was sliced evenly but were a little over cooked.

We asked for the bill for countless times. A colleague got impatient and went to the counter. That was when we realised that the staff are very forgetful that day. Everyone in the queue complained of food items which never arrived. The cashier just acknowledged each person with the response that he will purge that item from the bill accordingly. No apology and no clarification as to whether you would still want the drink/food.

Ordering via iPad is cool for a coffeeshop styled eatery. But it stops here.

Fastfood in a slower pace Cry Dec 27, 2013

Poutine

Poutine

 
This is basically thick cut fries, drowned in brown gravy, with some melted cheese curds and they raved that this is served in Quebec-style.

I am not a fan of this dish. Too salty for me.

This place has limited seating space. Service staff were moderately friendly. However, the prices are higher as compared to the more popular fast food chains in Singapore.
