Last Days Part 1


Small Talk: Exercising has it gains and of course its pains... sprained left ankle and twisted right knee... and visits to the chinese sinseh

People always say experiences and memories during the last days is always the most vivid, impactful and unforgettable - Be it the last place you have dated with your ex-girlfriend, or the last gift or advice you received from your dying relative. And thus I will be sharing with you my memories in my last days at Tras Street in my upcoming few entries.

Tucked just a few shophouses away at 57 Tras Street lays Gourmet Haven.

An eatery furnish with simple decor of a few chairs and tables, it is often missed and ignored by many walking by as the facial and frontage of the eatery lacks publicity and signage.

Gourmet Haven offers limited western set lunches to its customers, and I ordered the pork chop rice in black pepper sauce (even though I swear they mixed it with barbeque sauce), as well as the fried chicken drumlets to share with my colleagues.

We waited for a good 15-20 minutes before our lunches came, but thankfully the pork chop was pretty good and the set comes with egg and salad. However I find the sauce abit too salty and serving of the pork chop pretty stingy. The drumlets were also disappointing as it was served over-burnt and each bite comes with the bitter taste. I presume either they have forgotten about the chicken wings left in the deep fryer, or they have chosen to keep re-using the oil. The only good thing that comes from this visit is that they happen to serve cha yen.
