I went on a Saturday evening to visit them for the first time at this food centre. I recongized the 2 familiar faces right away. The brothers took over the business from their late father and using the same recipe that passed down from him to continue cooking different hainanese style western foods.
This was a really popular stall at Margaret Drive Food Centre, the waiting time could be upto 45 minutes or even longer if you come during their peak.
Self-service is expected here. I ordered then paid and waited for about 15 minutes to collect. They might be still new in this food centre and that explained a bit on the short waiting time.
Chicken Chop. It has been an old favourite. The nicely marinated chicken piece was grilled to perfection. It has got a nicely charred surface and still moist with juiciness still intact in it. A ladle of their special brown sauce was poured over the chicken chop before served. They served it with the thick cut fries and the mixed vegetable. A typical hainanese style.
Chicken Cutlet. Another must try. Though i am not quite a fan of their chicken cutlet but it tasted as good as the chicken chop. The well seasoned boneless chicken coated with a layer of bread crumbs before deep-fried. The same brown sauce poured over the chicken cutlet before served. Somehow, the brown sauce has compromised the crispiness of the chicken cutlet. It might be a better idea if they served the brown sauce separately.
