A Light Yet Pricey Dinner at Hediard

Croq’ Ferdinand

Here's the Croq’ Ferdinand tartine from Hediard, featuring gruyere cheese on the outside and Parma Ham with mornay sauce on the inside. Actually, these tartines weren't exactly very filling, so I also picked up the tartine of the day (which today featured shrimp and tomatoes in a veal-based sauce or something) as well as the gazpacho soup. All of these were tasty and fresh, with the gazpacho in particular being on par with many that I've had in Spain.

And while this all was light and pleasing to the the stomach, it was rather painful to the wallet considering that each tartine cost around S$20 (US$13). Throw in the soup and those two Perriers that I had, and it sure added up quickly...I've gotta be a bit more careful next time.

Jumping in for a quick random suggestion: Lau Goh Teochew Chye Thow Kway (Carrot Cake) at the Zion Road hawker centre. The hawker is supposedly deaf and lip reads his orders.

You like spicy stuff......

Try Heng Kee curry chicken noodles stall ground floor of Hong Lim Complex Upper Cross St. The queue always has at least 20 people, wait time 30 mins.

The stall is around for 40 years, operates 10:30 am - 2:00 pm (3.5 hrs?). Sells only 1 dish at quite exhorbitant rates for a hawker $4-6. Do your figures, the owner must be a millionaire many times over.
