Wong Kok Char Chan Teng

29 Sep 2007

After walking around Lavender… we headed back to Bugis for some shopping at Bugis Junction and Bugis Village….
Dinner time came pretty quickly and we were both famished :-s

We walked past this poster/banner…. Hey! Isn’t that Roger Kwok? (Hong Kong TVB Actor)
Hmmm…. another HK Cafe thingy… Aly and I decided to try it out ;)

The pic says it all… Wong Kok Char Chan Teng…

Here’s the entrance… there was a long queue when we went in by the way …

Here’s the menu …

Quite a number of things in the menu ….

Aly’s peach tea ($5.90)…. totally sour… so sour it tasted like sour plum… ewww….

My milk tea (shaker milk tea as on the menu) ($3.60)…. not the best I’ve had…. Aly didn’t like it

Borsch soup ($3.80) …. they got this all wrong…. TOTALLY AWFUL … it was FISHY… wtf…. it was the worst soup I’ve EVER had….

Aly’s baked rice with chicken ($10.50)…. I didn’t taste this mainly due to the nasty faces she made while eating it :-s

Some chicken and ham roll thingy ($7.90)… with thousand island dressing :-s

Deconstructed… there’s a piece of honeydew inside…
This roll thingy was totally salty….

My order of fried spaghetti ($6.90)… with pork cutlet slices

It wasn’t too bad… just a tad oily… and salty again :-s

but what’s with the frozen vegetables? I thought this was a restaurant… well… so called restaurant… not food court?! Sheesh …

Aly laughing after I exclaimed to her that we should’ve ate at the restaurant opposite instead of this nightmare…

This would’ve been a much much better dining experience!

All in all… one word sums up this place…. CRAP

Service was bad…. staff didn’t know much about the menu… didn’t understand what we wanted…

Food took forever to arrive and when it did, we wished it didn’t… ‘cos of the crappy food…

The table next to ours had raised eyebrows as well when they tasted their food … you guys should’ve seen their faces when they tasted the same soup… the 2 guys caught Aly and I sniggering at them take their first spoonful of soup when which they both made nasty faces upon first taste…. they then noticed that we had abandoned our soup and realised why so and gave us a look of acknowledgment coupled with a good laugh :P

Man… Roger Kwok sure endorsed the wrong place …. I would never step foot in here again.

We both went down to the basement to grab some buns and stuff to bring back up to the hotel after the awful dinner… :|
