East Coast Lagoon Food Village boasts of quite a large variety of dishes at affordable prices but there is just some charm about this hawker centre that sets it apart from the rest. I choose to think it is the location, by the crashing waves...near the sandy beaches.
Here's a showcase of the bad, boring and well, good to miss at East Coast Lagoon.
Fish Ball Noodles that were on the bland side. Very very normal.
Soup Kambing that was oily, thin in consistency and best of all, the mutton pieces were so tough.
Satay that every single table had. Bitter cucumber slices, chicken was too sweet, gravy flooded with oil.
Roti John! The best I had was at the now defunct Botanical Gardens..ever since, finding something decent has been arduous.
The beef bits were just fat, so bland it did zilch to the toast. Basically toasted bread with chilli sauce if you ask me.
I spy a Laguna Curry Puff (formerly from Lorong Stangee), back in its heydays..it could rival Old Chang Kee's.
Now, it is but an overfried pastry stuffed with heavily salted chicken curry. If you are lucky, you may get more than one bite of chicken.
$30 later, I was far from satisfied nor satiated.
