The Garden Slug @ Lorong L Telok Kurau

After hearing a fair bit about this eatery place, I took the opportunity to visit this place by suggesting to my colleague for her farewell dinner. It is not easy to locate this place as it is not on the main road. After you alight at the bus stop, you need to walk further down and turn into the side road Lorong L Telok Kurau to locate it. Once you see a lot of pet shops, you are at the right place.

We ordered the Wasuga Chicken Wing for appetizer. Initially I thought it was some Japanese marinated chicken wings. I only realized it meant "Wa Su Ga" (in dialect) meaning "I like" Chicken Wing after doing some research on their menu.

For soup, we had the Old Fashion Chicken Broth in a bowl. It was an interesting, light and refreshing soup boiled with melon, dried scallop and bits of rice.

For the main, we had Bangers & Mash and Meatball Melt to share. The sausage and mashed potatoes were nice. We enjoyed the additional texture of the mashed potatoes served with potato skins.

The Meatball Melt was Italian meatball (beef + pork) topped with marinara sauce and melted cheese. It was served in a big bowl and it can be quite messy to eat. One of us don't enjoy the taste of the meatball but I find it ok.

The overall experience was comfortable home cooked food. Don't expect high end restaurant standards here. One suggestion for the restaurant is to reduce the portion of their serving and thus reduce the price further. All of us find that the portion were really too big.

To get here, take bus 155 from Eunos MRT (along Sims Avenue not in the bus terminal). Alight at the 4th stop after Eunos MRT. Cross the street, turn left and walk towards Lorong L Telok Kurau.
