When we were east crawling the last time when we were at cgh we never quite got to this Presidential Poh Piah place (cos it was too far down long long Joo Chiat) so I'm quite glad I managed to drive down today where the parking wasnt too crazy. However this place is at a segment of Joo Chiat where its a one way street so we had to make a loop and park at another lane.
Kway Guan Huat (97 Joo Chiat Road) is located at a super old school coffeeshop (where also houses Beef House a beef noodle specialist), where old chinese music was blasting and small kids were asking us for drinks whilst munching on luxury wafers (my favourite!).
One egg soup - its egg york, in chicken broth, with fluffy egg white atop. Super chicken goodness. But I love the crispy batter and soaking it right into the soup.
Single order of Salt and Vinegar fries (shoe string). I generally prefer thin fries cos I like the batter to potato ratio better... We had to up the dosage of salt and vinegar cos at first it wasnt acidic enough. I missed the UK fish and chips where you can add as much of the actual vinegar into the frieds..
I had a SUPER CLOSE CALL cos my coupon expired at 545 pm and I left at 6pm to extend coupon starting at 610 pm , and with my car shades on didnt see the parking attendent till I walked 4 steps outside my car and bumped into her on the phone and she very nicely said ok even though i put 10 minutes later =P Its kinda WORSE to put a later timing than to not put btw.
Thanks Kok for the treat - Chocolate and Hersheys is actually good old thick dark chocolate, Coffee was a tad too bitter for me (prefer my coffee icecream with a little liquer, like Kahlau), but the Rockmelon was really popular (staying off sour flavours) and so was Durian (Jason's, guess he didnt have enough of the strudel).
On the way back with Jason we were debating what late night show to catch (if at all) and we decided to first park at Cine (shitty indeed =/) and check out the shows first. Major frontal lobe overdrive with the she's watching instead of we, and to account on Monday for the ultimate betrayal and the numerous obstacles of the crazy road crossing and the closure of the Basement box office, we settled for the 1135pm Princess and the Frog show, us being late by 10 minutes. ( We talked too much outside Sterling's car where I discovered the secret to them being embarassed wearing the masks all the time!!!!!).
