Queueing for Michael....

Nope I don't think that I will queue up for the tickets to a concert, but I am willing to spend a bit of time and queue up for food. :D

'Michael Jackson'
This is also known as a 'Michael Jackson', which is a mixture of 'Soya Bean
Drink' and 'Grass Jelly Drink'. As for the drink itself, it isn't too sweet
and there's lots of 'Grass Jelly Strips' inside the cup of 'Michael'. On top
of that, though it comes with a moderate portion of ice, but it tastes pretty
good too. There's a nice mix of both bitter and sweet taste, which is a (+)

So where can you give this drink a good try?
The name of this stall would be
'He Le, Soya Bean Drink Grass Jelly Drink'(和樂豆花水仙草水).
It's located inside 'West Coast Market Square', which is
located opposite, 'West Coast Plaza'.

Maximum number of Soups...

When one has the hunger for a bowl of Chinese Soup, where would be the best place to go? Well if you ask a hundred person the same question, you might ended up getting a hundred different answers. However, what I'm introducing today has something to do with a bowl of soup... :D

'Herbal Turtle Soup Meal'
Not sure how the bowl of soup will ended up to be, but usually I will order a bowl of
rice to goes with the bowl of soup. I still miss the good old days of soaking the bowl
of rice in the tasty soup. :D

Hmm... pretty hard to see what's inside. Let me scoop out some of the ingredients...

Just by taking a look at the ingredients that I'm scooping out of the bowl, frankly
speaking, I have difficulty figuring which is which. But one thing that I can easily
identify would be the fact that there's a good mixture of different types of turtle
meat been added into the bowl of soup. There's the gelatinous bits, the meaty stuff
and a bit of boney stuff.

Soup wise, I love the thick herbal taste that comes in every single scoop. Even
though it's a sunny day, but the tasty sensation that just get better and better
as I dig towards the bottom of the bowl. Though it's a bit bitter but there's a
nice sweet taste hidden inside the bowl of soup too. Too bad it wasn't a rainy day,
else I would have...

So where can you give this bowl of soup a good try?
The name of this stall would be 'Very Lucky Turtle Soup'(狀幸運山瑞).

Not really a salad bar...

Here comes a salad bar that doesn't sells salad only. In fact, their specialities over here are...

'Chicken Cutlet Set Meal'

Their specialities are 'Western food'. Even though they are preparing and
selling different kinds of salad too but most of the time, I would go for
the affordable western food that comes with a generous portion. I have
already tried the 'Chicken Cutlet' before. The cutlet is pretty crispy and
not too oily. One of the good pointers about this set meal would be the
number of set dishes that you can choose. Besides for the common stuff
like 'French Fries', 'Baked Beans', 'Coleslaw', they also have unique
offerings like 'hashbrown', 'corns' and 'baby carrots'. Though the taste of
the sides ain't too special but as mentioned earlier, the price that you
are paying here is pretty reasonable and the generous portion is a (+).

'Fish & Chips Set Meal'

Somehow I always turned up at the stall pretty late, since I wanted to
avoid the crowd, I always ended up getting the same few side dishes.
So far, I have tried 2 set meals and I wouldn't say the mains are super
attractive, what keeps me interested would be the generous portion and
the affordable price. :)

So where can you give the 'Western Food' a good try?
The name of this stall would be 'Salad Bar'.
It's located inside the NUS Frontier Canteen.

  • Operating Hours:
    Weekdays: 07:30 - 16:00
    Saturdays: 07:30 - 15:00
    (Closed on Sundays)
  • The queue over here during the regular lunch hours can be pretty crazy. Therefore, most of the time I would try to avoid the crowd by having a late lunch. :)
