Went Bugis Junction
to jalan today and lunch time arrived not long after. Quite sian about the eateries in Bugis Junction liao, so we decided to venture out!
Remembered reading about this place called Phin's Steakhouse
which served fantastic fish and chips
from some food blog. Armed with a digicam, we crossed the road over to Liang Seah Street and proceeded to find this particular restuarant among the whole row of eateries~
It was pretty easy to find~
As today's a weekday and it's not exactly lunch hour yet, it was still pretty vacant as we stepped in~
Their set lunches are relatively affordable. We ordered 2 fish and chips set lunches; one traditional and one beer-battered. The former costs $9.90++
and the latter, $12.90++
. Both sets include homemade garlic bread, soup-of-the-day and choice of tea, coffee or iced tea~
Service was rather brisk. This is what arrived after about 5 minutes~
Tried the soup first. At first i thought it tasted a bit like minestrone soup
but then i saw chunks of seafood in it, thus it could be seafood chowder in tomato base. Anyway it was rich but not too thick, just enough to whet our appetites~
The homemade garlic bread arrived warm; crispy on the sides, soft and buttery in the middle. Dipped it into the soup and took a huge bite. Perfect comfort food~ ^_^
Our piping hot main dishes came soon after~
Haha paiseh, a bit too close-up~ Anyway, it was great! It might not be clear from the pic, but the portion of fish being served was really quite generous; 2 whopping pieces of beautifully crisped fish~ It tasted close to divine
, i tell u! The coating was wonderfully crispy and its inside was remarkably tender and moist. It literally melted
in my mouth! The coleslaw was fresh too~
The traditional fish and chips was the crumbed type. The coating was crispy too, and not too oily. Its inside was really soft and juicy too~ ^_^ The size of these 2 pieces was so massive
that they covered the fries and the coleslaw~ O_o"
All in all, it was a scrumptious and greatly satisfying meal. 2 thumbs up!
In order to better digest a little of that sizable meal, we went off to bugis village to jalan a bit. Came across this stall which was recommended in this food programme
Wah these loaves are like, humongous
! The delicious smell of freshly baked loaves was wafting through the air, coupled with the sweet scent of freshly made kaya~ Didn't try it though, was too full!
Haha really looked like six-pack~
On my way home, encountered this really weird
I was so ready to burst out laughing when i saw this peculiar sight! Fortunately i still had an ounce of self-control~ I can't believe this particular uncle's wearing tights
in broad daylight! I risked my reputation to take this pic ok! People were staring
at me! O_o" It was too funny and rare a sight to let go of! I took this pic while the bus was moving and was kinda rushed coz my bus was reaching my stop~ Luckily it turned out fine~ ^_^
