OKay something to get this blog more cheerful again. Let me bring you, Buddy Hoagies! The outlet at Pasir Ris Downtown East caught my eye and imagine my surprise when Hammy told me that there’s one in Yishun! And he was raving about the rosti there, so I was looking forward to pop by.
I can’t believe it’s so near to my house but there’s no straight bus there! And I can’t there walk either because I would have to walk around this secluded area of forest, it’s too dangerous. So Hammy came down one day and drove us there, a 5 minutes drive away. :D
Nested in a community centre nearer to Khatib than Yishun, this Buddy Hoagies outlet is so cosy! I thought it’s a perfect place to study alone or with a few friends. And it’s super safe because just next to it is a neighbourhood police post. You can study until 10pm and then request a ride home from a suave policeman (
okay thinking too much now haha). If only they provide power points for customers to use laptops, then it will be perfect!
Well now for some food pictures.
The minestrone soup was tasty, but what surprised me was the toasted bread. It’s by far the most crispy yet soft such-that-it-doesn’t-cut-into-your-gums bread that I’ve eaten.
Hammy concentrating on the bread. Yes they have cushy armchairs at one corner of the eatery, so that you may just relax with a book and coffee and laze the afternoon away. By the way, the place is so empty because we went at around 4+pm. There were a few students here and there.
Another pleasant starter. Baked cheese fries! I don’t know about others, but all cheese fries I’ve eaten before were all drenched with nacho cheese. But this is different, the cheese is baked and stringy and the fries are so crunchy. These are simply awesome.
Interesting baked rosti as well, with ham and cheese, and chicken and cheese. I think they were a disappointment as they had a charred taste to them. Couldn’t taste the potatoes. Should have ordered the one which wasn’t baked, rosti with sausages, which is also the one Hammy was raving about. Damn, now it sounds nicer than what we ordered.
OKay that’s all, but we’ll definitely be back for our fix of cheese fries and for me to try the rosti with sausages! Wahahaha.
