my OPS friend came by. he was doing some errands & going for a late lunch.
my friend decided to go to 18chefs at level 3 star vista. 🙂
nice airy place, still empty at this mid afternoon hour.
my friend ordered the $13.80 seafood pasta, and added a soup & drink combo for another S$3.80. i took a tea. friend has 15% discounts, so price pretty ok.
for me though i think both he & i can cook a much better pasta ourselves.
18chefs is a F&B chain by se teo, a facebook friend, with a great social mission, providing gainful & productive alternative pathways & re-integration. an endeavour deserving of support. 🙂
after lunch, my friend decided to go try ah seng durians.
today no much queue, just 3 before us. MSW was at S$14/kg but no golden phoenix.
we decided on 1 MSW + 1 XO durian.
XO was creamy, had bittersweet taste. maybe golden phoenix still better but this was very good also.
it was a tiny durian maybe just 1 kg or less, but yielded like 14 or 15 seeds & very thin husk so very worthwhile.
MSW was good as always, creamy & very flavourful, though not the best i had from ah seng. MSW is heavy & thick husk, so make sure we get round ones with lots of seeds to be worthwhile. today my friend paid S$34 for 2, quite ok for what we had.
