Whenever I crave for western food, it is not so much the meat that I crave. I want equal parts meat and veggie. And that itself is hard to find.
I mean, I get it, it is ‘Western’ and meat is ‘main course’ with veggie as ‘sides’. If you want more veggies, order a salad..so, where does that leave those of us who just gravitate towards a more balanced diet and wish for a ‘balanced main course’? Or am I the only weirdo with this impractical craving for western food?
Well, there is hope yet as this picture shows up in my search in burpple. Almost without hesitation, I headed for 吃Western at 206 Coffeeshop, Lorong 1 Toa Payoh. At first glance, the skeptic in me thought for a moment that the review might be overrated looking at the unassuming humble stall. Well, they turn out to be a hidden gem! Thank you @imakansg for sharing this gem. Here’s the same pic I took, love the presentation of the smoked duck in the centre:
This is the real deal guys! The right combination of fresh greens and fruit toppings. So good it’s a meal on its own! Although I ‘d have loved a bit more of the ‘oriental sesame dressing’ for full flavour.
At $5,80, it is a steal. With fresh quality and the presentation, I too can imagine it costing double or even triple in other outlets or high end restaurant given some marketing and fancy names like ‘le’ duck de salade’?:)
