The Soup Spoon @ Raffles City

Backlog – We were down in Raffles City on Valentine’s Day and decided to stop by The Soup Spoon for a quick light lunch. Prices of the soups ranged from $5.60 to $6.90 (Regular) and $6.80 to $8.20 (Grande). As we were not that hungry, we thought of just sharing a large soup with a combo meal by adding $3.80 for an iced tea and a half-sandwich. I was tempted by their warm naans and ordered a serving of those as well.

We reached BBQ Chicken @ West Coast Plaza a little over 2:00 pm.  Initially, I thought we missed the set lunch promotion, but the manager was kind enough to extend the set lunch which supposingly ended at 2:00pm. Each set lunch included a soup, a main dish, a drink and a single scoop of ice-cream.

B1-16/17 in Great World City

Great World City… was rather obscure to me until recently… Now that I know the place better, it feels like an Oasis of sorts lying just outside the city fringe…

There are many of restaurants there, but right now I find myself returning to Olive Vine Pasta Fusion (Stall 19) within the Food Junction in the basement (B1-16/17) every time I am in Great World City.

One of the cooks (a Chinese National I suspect) was very sporting… As soon as he saw me with my camera, he threw up a huge flame-wave whilst creating his pesto sauce!! FLAME ON!!

Its actually quite a sight!!

Popeye’s Fried Chicken @ Airport T1

Awaiting our flight to HK, we were looking around for something light to eat. There were many choices, but we finally decided on Popeye’s… even though the queue seemed long. Why activate only 1 counter during peak hour?  Pffft…

After sometime, we got our light lunch… A chicken burger, 3-pieces chicken with biscuit, upsized both the drink and their mashed potatoes to share…

I think the turnover of their chicken pieces is rather fast, so we were given piping hot crispy chicken. I must say, their stuff was finger-licking good! I’d say it was as good as KFC if not better. The upsized mashed potato (2 large scoops) was quite nice, and I think it all lies within their unique Cajun gravy…

This meal came with their signature biscuit, and it was quite disappointing this time round. Last time I tried their biscuit, it was much better (without the obvious floury taste).
Wont waste $ on this next time...

The weakest link… was their burger… If I run a fastfood/burger chain, I’d be really ashamed to serve something like this… Basically, its a just a bun with a piece of fried chicken breast, a few weak strand of chopped lettuce (don’t seem very fresh), with a blob of mayonnaise… I think I can make a better chicken burger. Very disappointing indeed!!

Overall, their fried chicken and mashed potatoes were very nice. There seemed to be some inconsistency in the standard of their biscuits. Their chicken burger totally cannot make it, and if I ever return, I’d stick to their chicken pieces!
