Tried their sweet potate waffle and is taste good as expected! The price is reasonable 😁

Back to my boyfriend’s favorite place so that he can eat his Laksa Pasta! Meanwhile, I decided to try something else on their menu, which is the Salted Egg Chicken Pasta 💯
.
I loved how the salted egg wasn’t overpowering and the pasta is super well cooked! The chicken is as good as I remembered, super crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, even after a long time! However, I still prefer the Salted Egg Chicken Burger kekeke

I absolutely LOVED this dish. Being a big fan of salted egg, I always tend to order dishes w salted egg sauce! The chicken had a crisp skin and was tender on the inside while the salted egg sauce wasn’t too gelat and went perfectly together with the entire plate. The buns were crisp and moist and the fries were nicely seasoned as well! Overall, a super satisfied tummy!

So good!! The pasta was really delicious. It looked dry but the consistency was just right. Would definitely go again. The chicken was really fried though so great for people who like fried chicken.

The Workbench Bistro is located in a humble corner under a HDB block in Ang Mo Kio. Despite the small size of their cafe, there was always a steady flow of customers coming in, even at 8:30pm at night!
.
We ordered their most popular dish, the “Laksa Pasta” and it was really as amazing as everyone said it was! The laksa flavor was strong but not overpowering and it paired surprisingly really well with the linguine pasta. Every other ingredient was cooked well and everything came together to work in perfect harmony in this dish. My usually-this-dish-is-okay-i-have-no-opinion boyfriend loves Laksa and he rated this dish 8-9/10 so it’s really super super good and we’ll be back again!!

The linguine is well-tossed in the laksa gravy with prawn, mussels and squid. .

The idea of soft boil eggs in donut shaped beef patty works! The runny texture of the egg mixed with the juicy patty, topped with crispy bacon and melted cheese in between toasted buns is quite heavenly 😋 the accompanying paprika fries were light and crispy as well. If only the patty would be less seasoned with herbs and off the grill a few minutes earlier, it would have been a perfect burger. Best to have it for dinner with a couple of beers.

A western bistro is hidden in the heartland. The small bistro offers western dishes such as burgers, pasta, ice cream and waffles, has been around since 2015!

Salted Egg Chicken Burger ($16.90) is one of the several salted egg dishes they offer. Thick buttermilk fried chicken coated in savoury salted egg sauce, served with a bed of fries, it’s one of those comfy dishes to have.

I realllllllly liked this dish. The salted egg was not overly empowering so didnt feel gross after eating awhile. And although the sauce was not too thick, it didnt feel flavorless.

The chicken was well done too. But i think i didnt pay so much attention to it since the noodles was good enough :D

Damage: $16.90 (ouch!)
Verdict: 7/10

The waffles ($5) were heavy and tasteless unfortunately. Wanted to try the sweet potato waffles but it was $9.50! Abit too expensive for our wallets

Ice creams were sold separately @ $4/premium flavor.
1: Earl Grey - Was good, except that it wasnt frozen enough!
2: Taro - We enjoyed it!

Damage: $13
Verdict: 5/10

Definitely a unique innovation, the BOBO Waffle (S$18.90) is not your usual fried chicken waffle, but one that comes with purple sweet potato waffle and salted egg yolk sauce. The purplish appearance of the waffle is not an act of artificial colouring, but real chunks of purple sweet potato encased in the waffle itself.

Maybe it is something that the masses will love, but I felt that the waffle, because of the purple sweet potato, becomes a little too starchy for me by the time I down half of it. Fortunately, the fried chicken thigh and the salted egg yolk sauce prevented the dish from becoming a disaster, but I guess I should have just stuck to their burgers and pastas.

This dish, like its name, is just a miss for me.

Salted Egg Chicken Burger
Price:$16.90
Generous portion. Fragrant sauce. Juicy chicken. Toasted and crisp bun. The fries were topped with some spices which i think they could have added more as it is rather bland.

-Butter fried chicken topped with salted egg sauce, curry leaves & chili padi

Rating: 8.5/10

truffle fries without taste of truffle..do not order the salted egg chicken pasta..tastes horribly salty n not well balanced..will not come again

For those who are spam’s lover do try this as it is crispy and thick at the same time.

Personally, I think the mayonnaise does not goes well with the fries.
