Ask any Ang Mo Kio residents on where to find a place which serves good western food, and the answer is simply "Rasa Sayang" (no, it's not a folk song) at the central's S-11. Nestled within a short 5 minutes walk away from AMK station, Rasa Sayang is a choice for many students and diners who are looking for a quality, yet affordable western meal. Look at what the people are eating at this particular S-11 branch, I dare say that at any time when Rasa Sayang is open for business, at least 60% are having their food.
Recommended by Girlfriend Peiyi, we were there on a certain weekday, a little later than 7pm and the seats were over-occupied already. Therefore, please do expect long waiting times if you come during peak hours on weekends.
One of their bestsellers, Chicken Chop w/ Black Pepper Sauce (S$5.60) is also a favourite of mine. More often or not, chicken chops topped with either black pepper sauce or mushroom sauce are my choices when I visited Rasa Sayang (although the latter is my favourite.) Marinated, succulent chicken steaks paired with fries, baked beans, coleslaw and garlic bread.
Another speciality of theirs, Fish & Chips (S$5.00) which is Peiyi's favourite, was nicely crisp with a nice golden colour on the exterior, yet soft and juicy inside. This dish is served with the same sides as above.
Although slightly pricier than the usual hawker fare, Rasa Sayang is well worth it as it serves not only quality, but also of good quantity as well.
