Venturing into coffee shops to offer a slightly different menu from their restaurants at a different price, Astons Express has a wide selection of Western meals. Steaks are especially popular.
Was introduced to Astons from a Friend at their Serangoon Gardens Branch. Tried the rib-eye steak. Was having doubts about the price from coffeeshop stall.
After tasting it, was thinking that given the price and the quality of the meat. It surpass even some of the mid-budget resturants. The Chargrill Chicken was nicely grilled as well. Definitely worth trying it and the price is cheap consider the food that they offer.
However, at times u must wait for around 20 mins.
The famous Astons!
No queue here and food is served quite fast on a Saturday night maybe because its not that well known in the area yet.
Food was ok, not what i expected compared to Astons in Katong but comparable. Reason for lower rating for service as it is "coffee shop style". Same prices here to Astons in malls.
Fish fillet was the frozen fish and somehow when its not so hot, it tasted a bit bitter.. But still edible.
Steak is as usual good. Although medium rare was a bit more on the well done side. (ok, i'm trying to be picky) Somehow portion is a bit more generous den the Astons i went at Cathay (see review).
Ok Im slow. Just realised that Astons now has 2 outlets in my hometown of Tampines. But both are at the West part of Tamp and South Part. Quite a distance from my home..
One of the days after our weekly grocery shopping, me n the bf decided to just try it out(provided it wasnt super packed). Thankfully it wasnt. We placed out orders of
1) chargrilled salmon(medium rare) with onion rings and fries
2) teriyaki grilled chicken with corn on the cob n fries
Food came around 5-6 mins later and we dug in. My salmon was done the way i wanted. medium rare and well acceptable. Skin was super salty though but i stayed clear of it. I was pleased with the fish.
they did get the order wrong for my bf though. he got bbq sauce instead but being the hungry bochap one, he just ate it. important thing is that the chicken is there. The onion rings and fries were ntuc bought ones but i still like that they sprinkled that chilli thingy on top.
Total damage was $19. But i think the salmon was really worth it actually. esp since they got it right. Helped that i didnt have to queue for hours too.
