Hainanese Curry Rice (Maxwell FC)

Another trip to Maxwell Food Centre during a weekday lunch. There are lots of curry rice or Hainanese curry rice stalls in this food centre. The prices tend to be slightly higher than other Chap Chye Peng (wide variety of dishes with rice) stalls in other hawker centres or coffee shops. Why? I have no idea. Maybe because they are targeting the office crowd and in the area for cheap food its either Maxwell FC or Amoy Street FC.

Hainanese Curry Rice

Tried 2 stalls of curry rice so far. This stall called Hainanese Curry Rice or ‘China Street Hainainese Curry Rice stall’ (#01-68) worths some time online. A queue of about 7 people in front of me. But not to worry, the workers are quite efficient. Within 7minutes, its your turn to order.

I always order the same dishes when i visit the Chap Chye Peng stalls at Bugis. Now coming here, I changed my style and ordered fried pork chop (which to me is a signature item for curry rice!), chicken wing and bitter gourd (my favorite). And of course curry!

Don’t mind the presentation of the food, appearance can be deceiving.Despite the food being cold, it was irresistible! The meal totally wow me over, something so simple yet satisfying. The fried pork  chop was tasty (well marinated), crispy and thin. I was really wishing that a bigger portion was given. The chicken wing was not over cook, tasted firm and fresh! The bitter gourd (might be baised) was cooked to perfection, the way i like it. It was not hard! It was soft and sliced thinly. It was not salty and also not very bitter. Moreover, it did not taste raw. The curry was another wow factor. You really got  to give this stall a try. My next visit to Maxwell FC, I am going to eat this again to satisfy my craving! After that, I will try out other gems in the FC. =) Oh, I forgot how much this meal cost, but it was certainty worth it!

IKEA Restaurant & Cafe (Alexandra)

Went to the IKEA Restaurant & Cafe at Alexandra. I like the concept (similar to army style canteen), self service and it does speed up the process. You take a tray, if u need to get 2 or more trays, use their tray trolley! A great idea, they did not have it last time. Did not take a picture of it. After taking and trolley and/or tray, you follow the queue and choose the items from the freezers and order the hot dishes from the staff behind the counters. Then you go to the cashier and pay.

What to order? Well the Swedish Meatball!

Swedish Meatball 10pieces $6.50

The Swedish Meatball, I believe it is made up of minced beef and pork. It was cooked to perfection. Not hard, soft on the inside. It is served with boiled potatoes and cream sauce. *thumbs up* No wonder Swedish Meatball is so famous.

Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings 2pieces $2.80

The Chicken Wings was abit overcooked. But after biting through the skin, the meat is still tender and tasty!

The Swedish Meatballs alone would be worth a trip down to IKEA anyday!
