Taking over the shop space previously occupied by Saturday House (it has relocated to 55 Ubi Ave 3) is Clickafood – a multi-concept bistro and kitchen.
It houses not one, two but five concepts under its belt (which may remind some of Culture Spoon at River Valley)
Diners can expect an array of iconic dishes from Korean (Korean Mama), Thai (Thaitanium), Local (168 Huat), Western (Fig & Fiddle) to Beverages (He 喝); each branded under a different concept.
Positioned as a commercialized kitchen, I was pleasantly surprised to see their dining space interior decked in vibrant shades of pastels such as turquoise green and flamingo pink.
There is even an iconic grass wall installed with their signage catered for those who love their #OOTD shots.
From the Korean department, of course you would expect familiar favourites such as Korean Fried Chicken (3pcs $9.90, 6pcs $16.90, 9pcs $22.90), Army Stew ($19.90 for 2pax) and Jajangmyeon ($9.90).
Their KFC is available in two type of sauces – Spicy Garlic or Bulgogi, and I went for the former.
The wings came generously coated with spicy garlic dressing and sprinkled with sesame seeds. While the sauce visually looks fiery red, the spice level was more manageable than I had expected.
Another dish less commonly seen now is Andong Jjimdak ($9.90), and I miss the comforting flavours of soy sauce braised chicken stew with chunky potatoes, carrots and sweet potato noodles.
CAF version came sweet and savoury.
But I vividly remembered the famous one that I had in Korea has spiciness imbued into the dish as well.
The only dish on local menu is Nasi Lemak ($8.90) which came with butterfly pea-infused coconut rice, home-made sambal chilli, ikan bilis, peanuts, fried chicken wings and topped with sunny-side-up egg.
I generally enjoyed this plate of nasi lemak with all the crunchy condiments.
My only qualm was that the sambal chilli could use a bit more spiciness for the oomph.
By the way, I preferred the fried chicken wings on this plate compared to the saucy version as it had the light golden crisp.
What caught my attention on the Thai menu was their Pad Thai Bomb ($12.90) which came with wok-fried rice noodles topped with fluffy deep-fried omelette, Thai-style.
I thought the texture of noodles were rather on point to my liking; not too mushy. I have tried places that cannot even get Pad Thai noodles texture right.
For beverages, one can also expect Boba Milk Tea ($3.90), Oolong Macchiato ($3.90), Cheese Foam Black Tea ($4.50) or even house concoctions like Mango Coconut ($5.50) and Red Bean Love ($5.50).
Speciality coffee is also available and supplied by PPP Coffee.
While the food here are generally decent, perhaps the taste of the dishes is more accustomed to local palates and fell short of authenticity flavours from various cuisines.
Nevertheless, its an ideal dining spot for those who wishes to have the convenience of satisfying their taste buds at a go to curb the travel pang.
