Gem in Bishan Park

Strategically located within Bishan Park, it is a good option for families to dine there after spending a day at the park ( I spotted families donned in sports attire when I was there! ). I arrived just 15 minutes after dinner service started and was immediately ushered to my seat. However, not long after, queues started to form, so remember to go early to avoid the queue!

Truffled Egg Cocotte SGD7
The strong smell of truffle was what greeted us when this was served. The truffle was a smart pairing with the perfectly cooked soft boiled eggs, and dipped with the foccacia bread that was oh-so-crispy. Yes, the serving was rather small and some of you may find it pricey for just eggs & bread. But let me tell you, they were extraordinary to me. Truffle is a tricky ingredient to prepare and Grub seems to have done it right!

Crispy Fish Burger SGD14
The crispy fish in the burger came beautifully fried. I was happy to see the oversized fish, which means a more satisfying meat to bun ratio! How many of you like it this way too? ;) The fish was well seasoned, and had a nice coat of crumbs. The burger had remoulade (also known as tartar) and crunchy lettuce, which went very well with the fish and soft buns.

GRUB Cheeseburger SGD13

Another signature of Grub - their cheeseburger. Just look at the cheese melted over the patty!! However, my first bite of their signature dish left me disappointed in terms of taste and juiciness of the burger. It might have been the hyped up expectations from the aesthetically pleasing burger that was served. Definitely pales in comparison to other burgers I have tried.

Churros SGD8.50

How can you leave Grub without trying their churros! These came along with 2 dips - dark chocolate and tangy creme anglaise. The churros came piping hot and was crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Their version is a lot fluffier than the churros from Max Brenner (which are denser), so it's up to your personal preference in which mine lies with the Grub ones.

Purple Taste: GRUB @ Bishan Park 1

First time visiting during lunch hour on a weekday. To get here, one could take a cab and drop off at the Bishan Park carpark. Informed the taxi uncle to take us via Sin Ming Avenue.

 The days of the long queues might have passed, but this place is still pretty busy during lunch hour. Lunch sets are priced at $15 and $17 and you'll get additional cake, on top of your burger or main course. Quite a good deal, considering that the average cost for a burger is about $13, so that $2 extra would nett you a decent slice of cake for desserts. If you get a pasta dish, for example one that costs $17, then with the lunch set, the cake would practically pay for itself. Free, even better!

 Had tried the fish burger and the cheeseburger during previous visit, so this time round, went for the Har Cheong Gai Burger. I can almost imagine how it would taste like. Yums.

 Food was served pretty fast. All burgers come with fries, but one could opt for a small salad as well. Needed my greens, so no prize for guessing what I had. Tangy vinaigrette and pleasingly sourish.

 The patty for the har cheong gai was fried till a deep brown colour. Very very crispy batter. Am thinking that if the burger was served with those fragrant sambal belachan, then the oomph factor would probably have shot up by twofold!

 Har Cheong Gai Burger @$13++ (ala-carte), or $15++ (lunch set) are we ready?
 Liked the portion of the meat. Easy to slice through and it was juicy thigh meat encased in crispy prawn paste batter. The prawn paste taste was rather mild but one could still detect it. The crispy batter somehow reminded me of luncheon meat chips.

 For the cakes, there were adequate options and variety to choose from. On our day of visit, there were about 6 cakes options and a key lime pie.

 rainbow cake, key lime pie, lavender earl grey, ondeh-ondeh and milk tea cake
 The top two cakes for me was the rainbow cake and the ondeh-ondeh cake. Don't you feel happy, just by looking at those colourful layers of soft sponge?

Sakura Ebi Pasta too dry

Went to GRUB for dinner with a friend awhile ago. I would not say this is ulu as there are 4 buses that goes to this place from Ang Mo Kio MRT. I have heard raving reviews about their Sakura Ebi Pasta so i decided to grab my friend to try this out with me. He ordered other food instead though. 

Anyways, Did not quite like it. This was cooked in the agilo olio style. It was rather dry to me, Feels like like dry BCM. This was drizzled in mentaiko sauce with fried sakura ebi and big succulent prawns. I feel that they can be more generous with their mentaiko. :)
