Katong Chicken Curry Puff

One of the more famous curry puffs in Singapore, I was initially doubtful if Katong Chicken Curry Puff really existed. Frequently patronising Marine Parade Food Centre for dinner, I did not recall seeing this stall before. Today when I was there in the afternoon, I finally found it hidden in some inconspicuous corner.

I ordered a chicken curry puff which costs $1. The distinctive aroma of the spices and the robust flavour of the curry powder make this curry puff outstanding. Bite through the soft crust to savour the warm tasty filling made of potato and chicken.

Somehow I just wished that the chicken came in bigger chunks like the ones in Wang Wang Crispy Curry Puff at Old Airport Road Food Centre. Nevertheless I enjoyed the special curry flavour of Katong chicken curry puff which makes it a great snack for breakfast or tea.

Char-Grill Bar Char-Grilled Chicken

Yet another rapidly expanding Western food chain that infiltrates coffee shops in Singapore, Char-Grill Bar certainly gives Astons and Botak Jones a run for their money.

I ordered the recommended char-grilled chicken which costs only $5.90 inclusive of 2 free side dishes. I decided to have California raisin rice and baked potato with my chicken. The service was fast for a weekend lunch and I received my order within 15 minutes.

Topped with a thin layer of savory mushroom sauce, the specialty char-grilled chicken is fleshy and delectable, though the charred aroma could be more distinctive. The California raisin rice is sweet and tasty while the baked potato is fragrant and flavorful.

Besides grilled chicken, Char-Grill Bar also has an impressive variety of Western dishes eg steak, fish, burgers, salads, sausages etc at affordable prices.

Tong Fong Fatt Hainanese Boneless Chicken Rice

With quite a number of franchises in Singapore, I used to doubt the standard of Tong Fong Fatt Hainanese boneless chicken rice until I tried it for myself last week. In fact I was at Golden Shoe Food Centre for its nasi lemak but it was closed on a Wednesday evening, so I decided to try this chicken rice instead.

I ordered the $3.50 portion which comes with a plate of steamed white chicken, a bowl of rice and a bowl of soup. I was impressed by the superior quality of the rice, every golden yellow grain is filled with delightful chicken essence with remarkable fragrance. The steamed chicken is fresh and tasty but not exactly boneless as its name suggests. The chicken soup is also outstanding in terms of flavour and aroma.

If you are a fan of chicken rice, Tong Fong Fatt is a must try. It is certainly one of the more delicious chicken rice in Singapore.

Chef Hainanese Western Food Mixed Grill

My recent fascination with Western food brought me back to Chef Hainanese at the newly renovated Commonwealth Drive Food Centre. Previously tried and blogged about its grilled steak two years ago, I decided to have its mixed grill for dinner today.

Incredibly priced at only $6, this must be the cheapest and most comprehensive mixed grill in Singapore. Believe it or not, the fabulous mixed grill comes with pork chop, chicken chop, fish fillet, fried egg, sausage, French fries, baked potato and salad. I seriously couldn't think of anything else I would like to have in this mixed grill. In spite of its remarkable value for money, the superb quality of the dishes was not at all compromised.

If you are a foodie like me, you must not miss Chef Hainanese's mixed grill which is simply sumptuous and gratifying. Just by looking at the picture, I'm sure you will be craving for it very soon.
