Flo’s Rosti Special with Scrambled Eggs
During my recent trip back in Singapore, I was invited to try some of these tantalising and unique creations. One of the best sellers is the Flo’s Rosti Special with Scrambled Eggs ($16.90). Pan-fried to the right degree of crispness, the rosti was accompanied with salad, specially marinated chicken slices, sour cream and chives dip. The combination of diverse flavours and textures brought a burst of delight to my taste buds.
The kimchi pancake ($14.90) is also one of my favourites. Prepared with kimchi, onion, corn and chives, it is palatable with a mix of tangy and savoury flavours. Served with soy dressing and salad, the pancake is substantial enough for a meal!
For those with an inclination for bulgogi beef, I would recommend the bulgogi rice ($16.90) or the bulgogi pasta ($16.90). Bulgogi is one of Korea’s most popular beef dishes prepared with a prime cut of beef and marinated in an interesting mixture of soy sauce, sesame oil, black pepper, garlic, onions, ginger and sugar. Flo’s version consists of succulent beef served with rice, sautéed onion, scrambled egg and onion mayo sauce. The rice fully absorbs the gravy, making every mouthful a gratifying one.
The bulgogi pasta is another superb creation, blending the flavours of the East and West. I like Flo’s special soy sauce which complements the pasta, beef and sautéed onions perfectly.
Korean marinated chicken served with kimchi rice
The Korean marinated chicken served with kimchi rice ($17) was also very satisfying. Anchovies were added to the rice to enhance the flavour and give it a crunchy texture. The chicken was tender and flavourful too.
Chicken salad bibimbap
Another winning dish is the chicken salad bibimbap ($15.90) served with marinated chicken slices, rice, salad, onion, tomato cubes and Flo’s homemade hot bean sauce. The refreshing salad and marinated chicken slices neutralised the spiciness of the sauce. A fantastic dish for bibimbap lovers!
Review of the Sweet Divine waffles
Enjoying Sweet Divine waffles
For a sweet finale, tempt your palate with mouth-watering desserts. The sweet divine ($15) is a popular choice comprising freshly baked waffles with mini marshmallows, bean ice cream, maple syrup and chocolate sauce. For a richer and more intense flavour, add some Horlicks sauce. This sensational dessert is a must-have for anyone with a sweet tooth!
