My wife and I finally got around to trying this place out. I’d actually decided not to eat there because the decor is hideous. I mean, I want to be nice, but there’s really no excuse for how horribly ugly the place was decorated. So, I’d written it off. It didn’t look that appealing. I know someone is thinking something ‘cheezy’ about books and covers, but when it comes to food, appearance is important.
So, I never really paid attention to the place until about a week ago when someone I know told me the food there is good. A few days later we happened to be in Tampines 1 and realized it was time for dinner, so we started thinking about where we wanted to eat. Then I remembered what the guy had said about Say Cheeze and we decided to give it a shot.
When we first glanced over the menu we weren’t that impressed but we couldn’t think of anywhere else to eat so we sat down and ordered. We were very surprised. I wish I’d brought my regular camera. These are just from my iPhone.
The dishes we ordered had an upgrade ‘combo’ deal. For 5.90 SGD (4.90 on weekdays) we got a drink and a choice of soup. The add-on price seemed kind of high until we saw the soups.
My wife’s minestrone soup was very, very good. She let me try it. Seems like I forgot to take a picture of it, but it was really thick and had pieces of pasta and vegetable in it.
I asked for the cream of mushroom soup. It wasn’t watered down at all. It was also very thick and could’ve been a light lunch by itself if it came with a piece of bread.
The soups were a real treat. They reminded me of the soups we used to get at OrganiCafExperience in Century Square’s basement level, before it closed.
The main dishes:
The sauces were delicious and the servings were just the right size. I can’t believe how good the food is there, considering the way the place looks and the relatively low cost of the meals. We’ll definitely be going back!
