There are plenty of hawkers around selling western food, yet many aren't really up to standard. Sometimes its not because of the quality used, but more of whether the chefs put in effort to create something better with normal goods.
Happy Chef near ICA building is a good example. The stuff they used are quite the frozen types, but with some extra heart and soul, it became a class apart from the other hawker westerns. As for why I always wrote on places around Lavander, well, maybe you all can make a guess?
Chicken Cordon Bleu ($6.50)
Its not very often you can find Cordon Bleu in hawkers, maybe due to the streneous time required to prepare. But you have it here in Happy Chef! A tender chicken fillet filled with ham and cheese, coated in bread crumbs and deep fried. Tasty! The cheese turns hard quite fast but hey, at this price, don't complain so much la!
They also had a pork version at the same price, but i feel that it didn't go so well with deep frying as the meat became rather tough.
Mixed Grill ($7.50)
Great for big eaters. Came in generous portion of lamb chop, chicken chop and pork chop, all tenderly grilled and flavourful with different sauces. The dishes all came with a piece of garlic bread, fries and stir-fried vegetables, which was a nice change from coleslaw.
Grilled Fish ($6.50)
This one for you if not in the mood for meat. Topped with a healthy dose of sliced mushrooms.
Deep fried Mushrooms ($2.50)
You can tell that its the canned mushrooms type, but well, its served piping hot and crunchy with juices exploding after the first bite. Western food rarely has dishes that can be shared but here's one!
My friend had been telling me that I should list the exact addresses of all these places that I went, so that it wouldn't be so troublesome to come ask me every now and then. Maybe will spend some time soon to amend all the entries!
