This was recommended by a reader. (Thks Anonymous!)Hougang Green is situated near the Institute of Mental Health. Anyway, we went one big round to find the shop , not knowing what to expect. And at last we found out that the restaurant/cafe is right in front (near Long John Silvers.
I like the clean fresh look of the restaurant. Though it is small and look like a Fast-food restaurant, it looks cheery ,friendly with a personal touch.
Anyway, did not know what to try. Everything on the menu looks appetizing! We ordered red bean dessert with ginko, mango ice ($2.50 only!!), Rosti with large hotdog (longer than typical spoon) and cream and beef lasagne (I seldom order lasagne because too cheesy but the pic looks so yummy! that i cannot resist..)
The rosti is actually shredded potatoes (stick together like hash browns) pan-fried which originates from Switzerland. It was actually farmer’s common breakfast.
I find that the potatoes are not as well-cooked as I like it to be (cooked but firm not soft) in lasagne and rosti but probably it’s supposed to be that way..hmm..
Typical mango dessert would cost about $6-$8 but this is AFFORDABLE!
(This red bean dessert tasted like melted red bean (tau sar) buns fillings. If u like that, then this is for u…)
Verdict: I love the food and its affordable price tag: The yummy long chicken hotdog, coleslaw,lasagne (not too jerlak/muak) and expecially the mango ice .
The staff are friendly and some chinese staff are fluent in malay. Will come back for more….insya-Allah.
I saw a lady customer eat a burger so juicy that it drips (somewhat like Carls’ Jr burger that I had in KL)I nearly ordered but tummy want to burst! heheh!
