Over the weekend my wife and I spent quite a bit of time out and about and we happened to find ourselves at Tampines 1 as evening approached. We started thinking about where we wanted to have dinner when we saw the Tampines 1 branch of BBQ Chicken. I believe it’s a local chain restaurant. We’d eaten there before and the food was pretty decent, so we decided to give it another shot.
This time, we both chose meals from the main course selection. I got the “Jerk BBQ” and my wife got the “Korean Charbroiled”. We had a good laugh about that because when I ordered it she said, “Figures”. Ha ha ha! We also had another order of an appetizer called Koshi. There’s a picture of that in the previous post that’s linked to above.
One of the problems I noticed with this restaurant is that they don’t seem to understand the concept of “appetizer”. It’s supposed to come before the food so you have something to snack on while you wait for your main course. In both of our visits to BBQ Chicken, at both locations, the appetizer was served along with the main meal, as if it were a side dish.
That aside, the food was pretty good. It’s still nothing to get excited about, but it makes for a decent dinner.
Here are some pictures:
The top image is the Jerk BBQ and the bottom image is the Korean Charbroiled. Ya, there’s quite a bit of bad grammar in the menu and in the slogans along the walls. I should get some photos of that and post it sometime.
What we always want to try, but wind up not having room in our bellies for, is a dessert called Pat Bing Soo. It sounds delicious! One of these days we’ll have to go there just to have that dessert. Here’s a shot of the Pat Bing Soo entry in the menu that shows the ingredients:
