An Affair With Charco’s Halal Ribs
A big sign with the word Charco’s welcomed us from afar. The font and the background colour provided a rustic impression. It also says Perth famous. Consider me intrigued.
After getting news from one of our readers that there’s a famous steak house at Ang Mo Kio. We took our asses there in no time.
Lina ordered a plate of lamb ribs with 3 side dishes. She chose the potato salad, Greek Salad and additional $1.60 for their famous Creme Potato.
THREE minutes later, the dish was served to us. Yes, you read that correctly. THREE! It couldn’t have looked any better for the price of $17.60.
|A pinch of parsley to top it off|
I spooned the creme potato and took a bite. It was warm and firm. The added creme gave it a wholesome taste. One bite and it already felt a bit like the month of December in Cape Cod. Cosying up in a warm cottage while it snows outside. Best feeling ever.
There was one disappointment though. The ribs was like a compressed tyre. It didn’t feel fresh. I’m sorry I had to say this. It was really hard to eat it. We finished the potato salads but not the ribs which was the main component on the plate. It’s a shame really. We had high hopes for the ribs.
However, i won’t rule them out because it’s only our first time there. Maybe it was us being unlucky for getting the bad ribs. I’m sure they have a ton more of delightful dishes to offer.
I’d like to go there again and try out the steaks and the potato salads.
