it was a last minute lunch arrangement with another 3 colleagues yesterday – or rather, they have arranged earlier but i joined in at the last minute 😛
Managed to get a table for 4 very easily at about 1250pm – probably coz it wasn’t raining and people ventured out to Asia Square or even Shenton Way for cheaper lunches 🙂
I ordered Spicy Chicken Stew – never tried it before. I usually order pork belly tofu stew with rice in the past but now i don’t eat grains.
We all had warm water as it was a bit cold in the restaurant.
Maria’s Grilled Chicken Salad arrived first! $11 – I thought it’s a bit expensive for a chicken salad? I can get the same thing at Subway (and i get to choose all my vegetables) for about $8 and I already think it’s expensive..
Tofu Stew with seafood – Hui Mee who had this said it was diluted than the previous times she had it and the tofu tasted slightly sourish?! She left the pot half untouched, rice also half untouched! Price – $14, comes with sides.
Did they change chef? Or slack in their standards? They are usually quite consistent, in my opinion..
Jolie’s Kimchi Fried Rice – the portion was huge man! Price – $16, comes with sides and soup.
When my Spicy Chicken Stew came, i suddenly felt very embarassed. It came looking very grand in a wooden stove. LOL.
Doesn’t it look perfect? Sizzling, bubbling, chilli-red piping hot?! woohoo!
and I finished the entire pot! But I did not eat the potatoes, which made up maybe 1/3 of the pot and probably 1/2 the calories! They were quite generous with the chicken parts – love it 🙂 But it’s quite spicy – but i was pretty comfortable with it (plus a bit of perspiration la haha).
It’s now my favourite Bibigo dish 🙂 and it costs only $15!
