Been a while since I patronised Science canteen but I had to brave the queues this afternoon :( amidst all the long queues, there’s a few stalls that I usually head to to avoid a long wait and the Korean stall is one of them.

Upon placing my order, I paid with GrabPay for a $0.50 rebate (total cost was $4.70 as there’s an additional $0.20 for takeaway containers). I got my order in about a minute with two small containers of kimchi and candied anchovies.

Can’t say this is fantastic Korean food, but it’s seasoned pretty well (not spicy though), and I do like it for its convenience. Also, for the price, you can’t really complain. There’s a really generous portion of chicken given for just $4.50. I don’t think there’re any other stalls that can beat this amount of meat. Wish there were more veggie options in the dish too, but otherwise this is affordable and value-for-money food in the Science canteen.

Mala from science canteen!! If you’re in NUS this is my TOP pick. This mala is much cheaper than those outside ($4.50!!!!!!!!!) and the xiao la is just enough for a mild burn without the sweaty after effects - perfect for lunch before class. The gravy is really tasty with rice too! Love love love it. Must order ingredients are the lotus root and broccoli #burpple #burpplesg

Ordered brown rice with mock char siew, Thai sweet tofu and curry veg before slathering on some chilli sauce at the cashier after paying.

The vegetarian food isn’t fantastic, but it also isn’t bad. The mock meat is moist and chewy with vibrant red colour, unlike some places with extremely dry mock meats. The curry veg is stewed so long that the cabbage is super soft and melt in your mouth, plus the curry itself is quite lemak so it’s great on the rice. The tofu was slightly too sweet for my liking - I thought it was just regular braised tofu since it was placed at the counter behind, but it was still decent too. The sambal chilli is more sour than spicy, so perhaps I might start bringing my own bottle of chilli to add to my food. I like that they offer brown rice as an option in most of the canteen stalls nowadays. The vegetarian stall’s brown rice is well-cooked all the way through, so you won’t get annoying bits of uncooked grains while eating. I love that brown rice has a bit of a nutty flavour to it, so I usually opt for that and I also find I don’t tend to get hungry after eating brown rice than white rice.

Overall, this is school food and it’s super cheap and affordable so I definitely can’t complain about the quality. I’ve patronised the vegetarian stall multiple times and will continue to do so!
