Tucked away at Commonwealth lies this hidden gem where it’s a must-try for all you western food lovers! Not only do they serve a gigantic chicken cutlet, but they also serve it with their special tomato-barbeque sauce which truly sets them apart from the rest! What makes this spot a must-try? Let’s take a look!
Hidden Gem At Margaret Drive Hawker Centre
No. 1 Western food was previously owned by Mr Ong and his wife, with the stall having a history of over 52 years and counting! Mr Ong used to peddle along Queenstown serving his tasty western food before moving to their current location at Margaret Drive Hawker Centre where they have been for more than 40 years! The stall is currently run by the second-generation owners in the family and they continue to serve up delectable western food to this day!
What truly sets them apart from other western food stalls is the special secret sauce that they make from scratch daily! Unlike your typical black pepper and mushroom sauce, No, 1 Western Food’s unique sauce definitely elevates your western-food experience!
The Chicken Cutlet ($6) features a crispy golden brown chicken cutlet with a side of fries, beans, cucumber, and not forgetting their special sauce! The massive cutlet takes up almost the entire plate! The cutlet is fried to utter perfection, with the exterior being super crispy, while the interior still remains tender and juicy.
The batter has the perfect amount of thickness, allowing you to savour the seasoning of the batter before the flavourful chicken hits your taste buds! Additionally, the batter and flavours are on the lighter side, making it more palatable! For some chicken cutlets, they might be pretty heavy, making you feel jelak just after a few bites. Well, not for the chicken cutlet here and even one might not be enough!
Just when you thought the cutlet was already flavourful on its own, in comes their secret sauce. The sauce is doused over the cucumber and beans, ensuring your cutlet doesn’t get soggy. This unique tomato-barbecue sauce has a sweet-savoury flavour with a hint of tanginess that blends perfectly with the savouriness of the cutlet. Every bite is simply a symphony of flavours and tt even pairs well with the fries and cucumbers. Definitely a must-try dish!
