慈缘轩 (Ci Yan Xuan) Chinatown

I gave a call this morning at 11.30am to find out the menu & it added to my motivation to visit Chinatown. I originally intended to try its Burger but when I went down & saw their other menu of the day: 炸酱面 (Zha Jiang Noodles), I decided to try it instead.

With a generous portion of bean curb & mushroom cubes & sauces not too spicy & salty, I easily finished the whole plate of noodles. A good choice that I had made.:-)

Still craving for burger, I packed back its hamburger of the week: Black-pepper steak wheat bread burger. It's hugh like Subway burger, & because of the cheese, its bread tasted abit like Roti-John too. Though it does not look beautiful in picture, the mock meat patty is well marinated with black-pepper sauce. The taste is nice. Thank goodness, now you can eat nice hamburger without having to sacrifice an animal. I really think that it's the cooking skill that makes the food nice to eat, not the meat.:-)

I was told that they had started the theme of "Burger of the week", so every week, they will come up with a different type of burger. Even if you did not see Burger as their menu of the day on their Menu board outside the shop (bec it is written using white chalk & may fade as time passes), just walk in & ask the owner what's their burger of the day/week. I wish they could come up with nice creamy soup soon too.:-)

Address: 8 Smith Street (shophouse near end of Food Street)
Tel: 6225 9026 (If you want to confirm menu of the day:P)
Usual Opening Hours: 12pm-9pm?

Yes, the noodles is good.
Ci Yan supports organic food with less oil, salt & no MSG as printed on their namecard.
I heard there is vegetarian cheese? Not sure how different it is from normal cheese.
