I always get lost in the East. But sometimes, I think it’s a nice feeling to get lost somewhere and you will feel so much happier when you eventually find the place that you want to go.
We passed by Simpang Bedok while on our way to Foo House Cafe & Bar, and someone said that I’m a suaku (country bumpkin) as I have never been to the area before. Anyway, Foo House Cafe is located at Jalan Pari Burong, Picardy Garden off Upper Changi Road. I’m very sure that I will not go to that area unless we are driving, otherwise I will definitely get lost!
We started off with the Veal and Pork sausages from the Banger & Mash ($15.90). The mash potato had a very ‘clean’ taste, so I left that for the others while I attacked the sausages.
“Are the Magic Mushrooms ($13.80) enchanted?”
We had no idea how ‘magical’ the mushrooms were, but the grilled portobello and sauteed shrooms were great in the cream base sauce. It’s a little pricey to pay so much money just for mushrooms though, for the same price we could probably get another main dish.
The Salmon Steak ($18.90) was splashed with the excellent cream base sauce, which complimented the fish perfectly. The tinge of pink was simply irresistible, and I love how the salmon crumbled in my mouth.
The burger from Foo House is a monster! We were blown away by the sheer size of the ‘thing’. The Picardy Monster Beef Burger ($16.90 + $1 for each additional topping) cost twenty bucks after the addition of four toppings (Bacon, egg, caramelized onions and mushroom). Oh yes, I have included it in my list of Singapore’s Best Burgers.
This is a combination of greed and lust.
I preferred the Salmon Steak to the Pan Seared Seabass ($16.90), but the rest enjoyed both fishes thoroughly.
My partner had the Seafood Spaghetti ($19.90), which came with a generous serving of mussels, shrimps, and calamari. The pasta made me really happy. I know this might sound a little exaggerating, but it was like being kissed. Okay, maybe not. Nothing in this world can give you the same feeling as a kiss, but we really like the spaghetti.
We wrecked havoc on the Apple Crumble that was topped with a scoop of cold creamy ice cream. It was disappointing, and thankfully there was another dessert to keep us occupied.
Deep-Fried Mars Bar! OH MY GOD!
Don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with your eyesight, you read that correctly. Deep-fried Mars Bar. How on earth did someone come up with this genius invention? Deep-fried food always taste good, and Mars bar is just Mars bar; there’s no need to say how good it is. When you put both of them together, and add another scoop of ice cream beside it — Dear whoever in charge of guilt, I have sinned.
