The first thing they'll do is to check if you have a reservation. You may have one, or you may not. It's just like boarding a plane, you have to check-in. It's a culinary journey after all, an exciting jaunt to Steak City.

The second thing that they'll check with you is your preferred type of water, whether you'll prefer it still or sparkling. The server looks very good, nearly as that of an airline steward/stewardess. But you are not on a plane, you are eating First Class, not flying it. They are not asking you to choose between chicken or fish.

You don't have to choose between either still or sparkling. You can choose tap. We don't all fly Business Class. You may have flown before, and you know how many emergency exits there are. But there are also people who've never been on a plane and don't know where the whistle on their life jacket is. Consider this a friendly pre-flight warning.

Obviously I didn't only have Fiji water there. Want to know what else I had? More importantly, did it... Make the CUT?

Snacking before dinner is not something that our Asian parents would look to kindly upon. That is, until they come to Iggy's. Named after the founder Ignatius, Iggy's serves some of the strangest snacks you'll find in a restaurant.

It also boasts one of the most unforgettable meals you'll find in Singapore. Because this is not a place where you can head to the website 3 months after your meal to recall what you ate. Iggy's does not work like that. Iggy's operates on a seasonal menu, and courses are tweaked or downright replaced. With such a hefty price tag, you probably don't want to forget what you've had (so that you can boast to your friends about your meal).

Well, does a transient menu mean transient quality? Will you get the same experience that everyone else has gotten?

I don't need to talk about the long the wait is, because everyone else here has talked about it.

What I really need to talk about is why people like this dish.

People like this place because of how much is being given. But are they really giving you a lot? You're paying $6-$10 for a bowl of bak chor mee. At a coffee shop.

Well, at most coffee shops, $6 can buy you two bowls of bak chor mee. This is a really confusing meal. Because this is undoubtedly hawker fare, masquerading as something more with its fast food-level pricing, but being revered as haute cuisine.

This is not the Peking Duck one.

This is One Michelin-starred fare. Is it really deserving of its star?

Summary of visit:
1. Great tea.
2. Great meat.
3. Great service.
4. Great place to bring your parents to.
