Located in an old coffeeshop in Serangoon Garden, Astons Express is a franchise of Astons Specialties which is famous for its mouthwatering steaks. As its name suggests, you don't have to queue to be seated at Astons Express unlike at Astons Specialties. Having tasted the fantastic steaks from Astons Specialties and Astons Prime, I decided to try the grilled teriyaki chicken for a change.
Reasonably priced at $5.50, the grilled teriyaki chicken comes with 2 free side dishes of your choice. I chose tasty rice (butter rice with carrot pieces) and corn cob to complement the main course. Topped with a savory layer of teriyaki sauce, the tender chicken is flavorful and modestly grilled without the slightest burned taste.
Though delicious, the grilled teriyaki chicken just lacked the distinguishing factor. I also felt that the teriyaki sauce was too salty. However my opinion may be biased as I prefer my grilled chicken to come with a distinctive charred flavour. Nevertheless Aston Express is still worth a try if you have a craving for Astons' steaks but not keen to go all the way down to East Coast
