What I ate:
Potted Milk Tea
  • 7.5/10
  • Not too sweet
  • Good amount of tea flavour that’s was surprisingly fragrant
  • I liked the addition of the oreo cookies on top, not only because its cute but also because the drink becomes like a chocolate milk tea with crunchy bits to it
Che-licious Special – pandan jelly, agar, pom pearls, toddy palm, jackfruit, longan, coconut milk
  • 6.5/10
  • Again not too sweet, just the perfect amount of sweetness
  • The coconut milk was not too rich, great balance
  • But the jellies were way too filling for me
  • I liked trying the different kind of jellies, my favourite was the pandan jelly but other than that I found a lot of them not to my liking (jackfruit)
Saigon Signature – Various Cold cut meats, BBQ Pork, pork floss pate
  • 8/10
  • I actually quite enjoyed their signature Saigon
  • The cold meats were quite good and had a good amount of fat to it
  • The ratio of cold meats to marinated veggies to bread was perfect
  • The bread was crispy on the outside and soft and airy on the inside
  • I wish there was more pate and mayo in it to really take it to the next level
Ducking Good – roasted duck, ginger, scallion
  • 7/10
  • The bread was again really good
  • The duck flavour really came through and I loved the fat which really added an extra level of umaminess
  • But the duck was a bit too chewy for me
