I’m not a fan of chicken ramen, however since they mentioned No.1, ok I’ll give it a try. One reason of my visit because Tendon Kohaku is full house and longg queue, so I’m a spontaneous customer to dropped by Menya Takeichi.

A sip of the collagen rich chicken broth is heartwarming. Make sure your ramen soup is hot so you can taste a full flavor of the broth.

The bambo shoots, onsen egg and tender chicken slices was taste good.

Compared with Aston Specialty, Pepper Lunch offer a more affordable striploin steak. However the satisfaction of eating a real steak was not there.

They use frozen meat, microwave it for 15s and straight away grill it over the hot pan! This is express way of serving food in a food court when the queue is never ending. I would call this #expeesssteak.

The beef is sticky to the hot pan, and the vegetable tasted slightly raw. For those who want to have an express & affordable steak this is definitely your option.

Uruguay Ribeye is Astons’ new seasonal menu, once I saw the poster at the door I decided to give it a try. The dish priced at $20.90 and comes with 200g ribeye steak and two side dishes.

I’d like my steak to be grilled medium rare and two side dishes of my choices were baked potato & coleslaw.

The steak comes with a yellow topping cream and the fat portion was very little. I personally prefer more fatty cut like sirloin.

Astons’ branch at City Square has a lot more sitting capacity than most branches. And you can get the sitting fast even though the queue is long.

Overall, Astons’ steak is reasonably priced and the quality not disappointing.
The side dishes were well-prepared and appetizing too.

This combination of salad is the best for me. For $7.90 you can choose 3 items + 1 base. My choice was brown rice (base), chunky tuna, smoked salmon and teriyaki beef. I topped up $4.50 for an iced mocha. In total my lunch bill was $12.40 and it was the best value for money. No GST and service charge.

However the service for ordering coffee quite slow as there was only 2 persons at the counter doing the cashier & serving coffee. I suggest they should hire extra hand for brewing the coffee, otherwise customers might need to wait 15 mins just to grab a coffee on the go.

The interiors quite cozy and modern, and it’s always packed during lunch time. Not suprised as this is the only nice cafe around Ubi/Kaki Bukit area. Quite a lot of ang moh patronize this cafe, to get a coffee, sandwich or salad.

Best option to grab lunchie here of you’re on diet mode, since they serving healthy and light food.

The Spaghetti Carbonara cooked in thick creamy sauce and tossed with ham slices and bacon bits. The dish was decent & comes with a resonable price. A set meal (spaghetti + ice lemon tea + chocolate cake dessert) only $10.90. Chocolate cake is yummy & moist. It definitely worth the price.

The place is being hidden away from the main shops at Marina Square shopping mall, and tends to go unnoticed.

What special about Olive Vine is the owners channeling some of the profits to help the underprivileged children & support Christian mission work.
