Its way past midnight in hostel and you are still staring at your books. You need to get that theory in your head for the oh-so-important quiz, but your stomach growls loudly for fuel while your brain seems to agree. Alright, enough is enough, rally your neighbours and let’s go check out that new eatery near Fong Seng!
Ameen Makan House is managed by the Al-ameen group, which is already well-known for their supper joints at Bukit Timah and Woodlands. Opened barely for two months, the place is spanking new with bright lightings and cheerful green tables. Seating tends to get a little cramped with more customers but you will likely get used to it.
The menu here is slightly different as they don’t serve your usual Kosongs, but they do have a wide range of naans, western, stir-fry available. Bush or Obama fried rice? Your pick!
Clockwise from back: Teh Terik, Milo Dinosaur, Teh Cino
Teh Cino has always been my preferred choice of supper drink. The rendition here is rather to my liking; nicely sweeten even with dilution of ice cubes. Or you can always rely on good ol Milo Dinosaur!
Why not order some Cheese Fries for sharing? Served hot and crispy, the thick cuts are drizzled with ample cheese and mayonnaise sauce, gone almost as fast they are served!
Original Kebab Burger, Roti John
For bigger bites, the Original Kebab Burger and Roti John make really good choices. The kebab is fragrantly spiced with moist tender meat, while we upgraded the Roti John with cheese and mushrooms. Extra plus points for toasting the bread buns, giving a nice crunchy texture at every mouthful.
Seafood Mee Goreng, Seafood Beehoon Goreng, Thai Style Kway Teow Goreng
Need to load up on carbo? Bring on the noodles! Never mind that it’s just instant stuff, the Seafood Maggi Goreng had hit the right spot for comfort food, while the Bee Hon variant is done drier with a good mix of eggs, prawns, vegetables. Likewise, the Thai Style Hor Fun was satisfying, nicely charred with a sweeter chilli sauce.
Affordable with speedy service, Ameen Makan House makes an excellent alternative to the usual Nasi Lemak. Now don’t overstuff yourself, you still need to get back at that theory!
