Hi everybody and every soul!
Another entry before I drag this butt and run in this perfect weather!
So this time, it's at the Fork & Spoon food court at Toa Payoh. It's halal, everybody! It's even stated in a website run by Islamic Events: http://www.islamicevents.sg/halal/587. However, if I remember correctly, NOT ALL the food stalls there have a Halal certificate by MUIS. Hence, if you feel dubious about it, do clarify with the person working at the respective food stalls, yeah? :)
Okay, but the Western food stall is indeed halal. Confirmed, plus a million chops and signatures. I saw the halal cert with my own eyes lah, that's why.
So I bought the promotion set (tak habis-habis nak promotion HAHA) consisting of Chicken Chop + Soup of the day, while my food buddy bought Grilled Fish with Spaghetti! And cheap too! Yayyy!
Fork & Spoon Food Court (Toa Payoh) is located at:
Blk 470 (walking distance from NS19 Toa Payoh MRT Station)
Lorong 6 Toa Payoh (Above Courts)
Review of food
Super generous amount of gravy on the chicken/fish which are well-fried/grilled, I like! The mashed potato is awesome too; the potato is mashed appropriately and served with a different gravy which tastes good as well. Coleslaw, well..... tastes like normal coleslaw, I guess. I gave my lot of coleslaw to my food buddy teehee! The soup-of-the-day (mushroom soup) which is super addictive and delicious with a generous amount of chunky bits of mushroom in it. The spaghetti ordered by my food buddy is not too bad too, but it has a very strong tomato taste in it which is not really to my liking for a spaghetti sauce. But all you toe-may-toe lovers out there, this spaghetti is for you!
Ambience & Service
Well like a typical food court such as Banquet, Kopitiam, Koufu and errr, Foodclique? (currently a hotspot for NUS students to have lunch hahahaha!) Very culturally localized, noisy and well-lit. Service wise, it was okay. We had to wait for a while for our western food though, since there was quite a number of orders before us.
Budget (for each person)
Chicken Chop, Grilled Fish, Mashed Potato & Mushroom soup! The stall also sells mixed grill consisting of almost everything they sell (chicken chop, lamb chop, chicken sausage, mashed potato and coleslaw) for just $9.90, hence it is really worth it! Share the mixed grill with your loved ones ;)
Western food lovers & avid consumers of mashed potato (which is served generously as a side dish or you can order separately as well)
