Seletar Western Food : old-school Western food

The coffee shop is located at the Seletar Hill, amongst the row of shophouses along Jalan Selaseh. This Western food stall is a popular choice amongst the residents of this quiet estate. The usual waiting time during peak hours can be up to an hour. It is the corner stall at this quiet coffee shop and it has been around for about 20 years but the current owner is only at it for about 4 years after taking over from the original owner when they decided to retire. 

Most of the other stalls were already closed when we were there at about 5 pm on a weekday. When I was there to order, the uncle was serving an elderly customer that likely to be a regular. He went to where he seated to take his order. I waited for him to get back. I ordered Chicken Chop ($6) for myself and the Chicken Cutlet ($6.50) for my dining companion. I then pointed to the table right at the corner. We waited for about 15 minutes for it to be served. 

The Chicken Cutlet consists of a piece of deep-fried breaded chicken served with a bun, baked bean, fries, lettuce, and cucumber. My dining companion started with the bun. He said, "This one tasted better than its looks. Though they deep-fried but it was still soft and not greasy." He said after trying the chicken, "The seasoning is quite light thus it tasted a little bland." He continued to say, "Overall, it was okay."

The Chicken Chop was slightly charred though it did not taste crispy, it was served with the brown sauce and the same sides. I finished it even though it is not amongst the best that I had tasted. 

This is an interesting find in an old school coffee shop.
