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 before~
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 uncle:
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~ ^_^
