Posts Tagged ‘Bukit Ho Swee’

There’s been news about how new cafes have been springing up in old, but yet-to-become-hip enclaves.

One of the newest additions to the Bukit Ho Swee area is barely two-week old Sin Lee Foods. Located along a quiet HDB void deck, Sin Lee Foods takes it name from the coffeeshop that used to occupy its premises. I went to check out the place with Shan and Ben.

On my hit list was Chicken & Waffles. The chicken was fried food heaven.  The skin was crisp with crackling bits and the meat was juicy and tender.  It was served upon a waffle that looked beautifully done – smooth with no burnt bits.  However, I thought that the waffle could have been cooked a little longer to make the outside more crusty. The inside was moist, sometimes to the point of being mushy. The maple sauce went well with the waffles, but I decided that I preferred to leave my savoury fried chicken alone. As for the side, I liked their coleslaw very much. The cabbage was fresh and crunchy, with just the right amount of sourness. Overall, the dish with its sweet and savoury parts, felt like I was a lazy fellow eating my main course and dessert all at the same time. While generally good, at $21.90 I do find it on the high side for a hole-in-the-wall cafe located in such an area.  I think I will probably opt for the coffeeshop chicken cutlet instead.

Shan tried the the ABC grilled sandwich with spam fries. I didn’t try it, but spam fries sounds like a good, unhealthy idea to replicate home – the husband will love it!

Overall, I probably won’t be making the detour there again anytime soon as the place is kinda out of the way and the food is expensive.
