“Rasa sayang Eh, Rasa sayang sayang eh, Hey lihat nona jauh, Rasa sayang sayang eh…”
Residents around Ang Mo Kio should be familiar with Rasa Sayang Western Food stall previously located at the S-11 coffeeshop.
It used to attract very long queues for its mega-sized Chicken Cutlet, and I would remember heading all the way there to line up if I got any Hainanese kopitiam-style Western food cravings.
A couple of years back, the stall within S-11 was taken over by new owners, and its popularity and reviews well… kind of dipped (Currently 2.8 on Google).
Good news for its fans: the original stall has reopened at Block 347 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3, at a coffee shop opposite AMK Hub and a couple of minutes’ walk away from its previous location.
Some of the available favourites include Chicken Chop ($6.50), Pork Chop ($7), Chicken Cutlet ($7), Salmon Fish ($9), Fish and Chips ($6.50), Chicken Wings Set ($7), Lamb Chop ($12) and Chicken Cutlet Spaghetti ($7.80).
For those who order from the steak and chop menu, you can choose from mushroom, black pepper, garlic butter and sambal chilli sauce.
My default order was typically the Chicken Cutlet in the past, and the friendly uncle would oblige pouring a little of the garlic butter sauce over – because I liked the garlicky ‘fragrance’.
At a value-for-money pricing, the meat would come in a huge slab, complete with the crispy crumbed outer layer and succulent inside with that old-school flavour.
Queues are expected to be very, very long.
