I heard about this place for quite some time. Ran past it a few times even. All I know about this place was the food was good but expensive. And from the outside, it didn’t look very great. But anyway, stuck for a place to have dinner at 8.30 pm on a Friday night and in the Changi area, found ourselves there after failing to get a parking space at Changi Village.
There was no parking space available here as well but there was valet parking. Thank goodness. So we strolled in. The first thing that hit me was it was quite a big place. What we saw the few times we ran by was just the small little side porch filled with overgrown plants. And the next thing was the many curios and old stuff placed haphazardly all over.
Like these pair of bicycle high up on the wall
Or this scooter on one shelf.
There was another scooter behind this and another one on top.
Then there were the old stuffs like this old manual typewriter
And a rotary telephone
Many other stuffs lying around. Sort of remind me of Ban Mai Chai in Thailand.
Enough of the curios. What about the food? When I said expensive, it really is. For instance, this plate of mee goreng cost $16.00. It did come with 4 fairly big size prawn but still $16?
The “pizza” though was fairly decent priced at $23 although I will hesitate to call it a pizza
That stir fried wagyu beef on top of a naan like crust. It is definitely not the usual pizza crust. The oil from the beef seeped through and it became quite a messy affair to eat this.
I like the fried chicken wing but they are too small. And cost $14 for 3!
Back outside, there were 2 nice cars “parked” along the five foot way
Unique place to eat with nice atmosphere. Generally the food is pretty decent but at these prices for local food, I rather continue going to Essen.
