We remembered the hugeeeee beef ribs that we had at Bardoque some time back, and were keen to try some of the other dishes.
- Blue Oysters ($12.50): There were easily 30 oysters fried in batter… yummilicious! It would be better to share this among a few friends though, as we had difficulty trying to finish so many at one go.
- Lambergini ($28): There were 4 pieces of grilled lamb, so again, it could be a dish for sharing. Hubby enjoyed the lamb very much! As usual, I thought it was quite gamey, and I did not really like the super fatty parts.
While the food prices were definitely reasonable, we discovered that warm water actually cost $2 here 😮 Cold water came in the form of bottled water. The other drinks were comparable to other cafe prices. I guess the food and drinks prices kinda balance out after all.
There was a 1-for-1 offer for Western food (usual price $8.90) at Mamak Culture, so we got ourselves a chicken with Hainanese sauce, a fried fish with chilli crab sauce, and a less sweet teh tarik ($1.90).
The teh tarik was excellent! Very smooth and not too sweet or acidic, we finished the drink in no time!
We were in for a little surprise when we saw our mains. There were 3 fried fish fillets but only 1 not-too-big chicken thigh meat. The sauces were also given in rather small quantities and were barely sufficient. However, the chicken was very juicy, and we preferred it to the fish. I guess its a choice of quantity versus quality? Sides includes potato wedges, baked beans and coleslaw. Certainly value-for-money with the promotion!
We rather enjoyed the food, but the service was very slow. We had to wait for the staff to prepare the orders of the previous customers before he would take our orders. So it was a good 5 to 10 minute wait by the counter, followed by more waiting while they prepare our orders 😮
One of the more popular foods at the Changi Village Food Centre would be the nasi lemak (Malay coconut milk rice) and there are many stalls selling that. During our stay in Changi Village, we tried 2 of the more popular stalls – International Nasi Lemak and Mizzy Corner Nasi Lemak.
We ordered the same ingredients (egg, ikan bilis, otah) so that we can compare. Honestly, we couldn’t really tell which one was better, and we very much preferred the Nasi Lemak Kukus at Upper Thomson, haha!
Of note, at Mizzy Corner, it would be better to order the chicken, egg and ikan bilis set ($3.50) because almost all the sets were $3.50 (egg, ikan bilis with another item), but ala-carte chicken wings actually cost 50 cents more, so it was more value-for-money.

Very late night dinner in town and we HGW-ed Lucky Plaza and found Ayam Penyet!
- Ayam Penyet ($7.40): Very yummy indeed. The portion was not very huge, but the chicken was extremely crispy on the outside and tender inside!
- Ayam Bakar ($7.50): A little too sweet for our liking, and the chicken looked even smaller than the Ayam Penyet…
- Tahu Telor ($6.10): This was quite good, except that the peanut sauce was rather cold.
- Es Cendol ($3.60): This was quite unique as it had a very strong taste of jackfruit, we quite enjoyed it!
- Kopi-O Kosong ($1.90): This was ordered only because Kopi-C Kosong was not available… haha
