Decided to venture into the East for dinner - I've been told by more than one person that there's a restaurant deep inside Jalan Tua Kong but the place just seemed too residential to me. So to satisfy my curiousity, I had to see if this place really existed...
After driving past a few roads of nothing but houses, lo and behold a row of shophouses appears and we see the restaurant tucked away next to a car repair workshop. What a bizarre location!
Very chill-out atmosphere decorated with tiki torches... as you can imagine, with just tiki torches, the lighting's pretty bad for photography so let me pre-empt the strain on your eyes by apologising first... Sorry! :)
A burger just seemed like the right thing to have here so I ordered a Sloppy Chilli Burger $15++.
It's so totally smothered in chilli that you can't see how thick the patty is... well, it was about an inch thick. And I love chilli - the kind they put on hot dogs? Meat, meat and more meat - Dr Atkins will be pleased! So was I :)
The Shredded Pork Sandwich $17.80++ had lots of meat in it too. It's supposed to be Jim Beam flavoured but I ain't tasting no alcohol here...
But still good... enough meat to make any meat lover happy. Yes, us carnivores ate up all the meat and abandoned most of the bread :)
Food is delicious and reasonably priced and it's a great place to chill out and have a few drinks.
