📍No. 1 Western Food, Margaret Drive Hawker Centre📍
💸 Chicken Cutlet: $6.50

Once in a while, we love having hawker western food for it's generous portions and old-school taste👍. The Chicken Cutlet here is super huge and crispy🥩, and comes with a generous portion of crinkle-cut fries🍟. Our favourite is definitely their sauce. Unlike the usual black pepper or mushroom sauce, this tastes like a tomato based sauce 🍅. It's a bit tough to describe, but it's reminiscent of the sauce they put on hainanese pork chop, which is sweet and savoury. This has a very old-school taste that reminds us of our childhood memories😌!!

Nostalgic as my grandparents used to bring me here as a treat; though sadly I'd only rediscovered it a few years back. The stall has been around for over 50 years, and is slated to close in July 2022.
.
Their secret sauce is the star, a tomato and barbecue sauce base that is rich with piquant sweet savoury flavour, deliciously addictive.
.
The medium thick slab of boneless chicken is perfectly grilled, tender with a succulent chew and bold meaty smoky sweet savoury salty flavour.
.
Sides of juicy cucumbers and tomatoes with vegetal sweet flavour, soft baked beans with sweet savoury notes, fluffy crisp English crinkle chips with savoury salty flavour, complete this.

This old-school stall has been quietly serving lip-smacking Hainanese Western fare for over 50 years, though the stall itself was only setup in 1981 when the 'hawker centre' concept was implemented. Prior to this, founder Ong Choon Chiang used to peddle out of a pushcart.

I have faint recollections of visiting as a kid; my grandparents saw western food as a sort of reward for good behaviour, though in hindsight, they probably enjoyed it just as much, being English educated.
.
The cut of beef is medium sized but thin, though it's well seasoned with black pepper. Grills almost instantly to a medium well, but is juicy and tender with silvers of fat, having a bold meaty savoury peppery spice flavour.
.
The sliced cucumbers and tomatoes are fresh and juicy vegetal sweet, while the soft baked beans with sweet savoury notes are kept warm by their beef blanket. The English crinkle cut chips are fluffy and crisp with a nice savoury salty flavour.
.
But the star is their thick, luscious, tomato-based barbecue gravy, rich with piquant sweet savoury flavour. A 50-year old family recipe that remains a secret to this day, it's deliciously addictive, creating repeat diners of most everyone. Can't get enough of it.
