Doesn’t my chicken chop and spaghetti look yummy? I love it and want to go there again!
About 6 months ago, after reading the chicken chop and spaghetti post by Sha, I was really tempted and raring to visit the canteen at NIE. But the first time I tried to go there I mistook NIE for NTU and I rode all around the campus wondering where the place was. In the end, I gave up.
I had a craving for western food again lately and I remembered about Sha’s recommendation. So, I went there again recently this week. Once I knew the bearings, it wasn’t that difficult to go there. Exit from the PIE expressway to Jalan Bahar, enter NTU and at the welcome sign, turn right to Nanyang Crescent and head all the way to carpark 4.
All around your journey, you’ll be accompanied by this cool pirate like sign.
What I like about the surrounding area was the amount of greenery here. When I parked my scooter, I could see so much trees as far as the eyes can see. It was so serene.
When I entered the canteen, it was quite full with the lunch crowd. I spotted the western food stall already crowded with a number of people queuing up. Having already decided what I wanted to eat, I queued up for my food, made my order and got my food shortly after.
I love my Chicken Chop! The gravy was delightfully savoury and the chicken meat itself is freshly cooked and was so juicy. The mashed potato was so smooth and was such a delight to eat. The spaghetti wasn’t the best that I had, but it was still pretty good. There was a generous amount of basil and a good amount of meat on my pasta. Best thing of all is that it costs only $3.80!
Actually this was my second visit in a span of one week. Earlier this week, I had the grilled fish and butter rice ($3.50). It was pretty good, with the fish being hot and crispy when I had it. The meat was nice, flaky and quite delicious. I didn’t really fancy the rice but it was not bad 🙂
I’m still thinking about my meal there and want to eat there again. If you’re anywhere in the west, join me there the next time? 🙂
