Buffalo wings lovers would be pleased to know that there is another eatery offering the challenge of crazily spicy buffalo wings since the demise of Sunset Grill and Bar.
Instead of the common levels, the gauge on spiciness is now based on the more accurate degree Celsius; from a gentle 50 to an insane 10,000°C (according to the menu)!
This place is Careshop de Cafe; despite the name, it is a cafe that sells more than just Japanese, Western, pastas and local food. I understand there are health products for sale and a seminar room that you can rent to hold events like birthday parties.
We were focused on what we want. Food.
S-Class Detox Juice
Plum juice with a touch of lemonade, i assumed this would be helpful to clear my body of the accumulated junk! As with most things that are healthy, it had a yucky, powdery taste.
Spicy Grilled Fish Rice
Just the look of this dish was enough to elicit a disappointing expression from us. Nothing much can be said about the plain rice and fried egg but there are two words to describe the fish; spicy hot!
Pan Seared Dory Fish
Thank goodness this looked much more appetising. The mash potato was simply palatable, the pan seared dory was tender and fresh and all of us agreed that the buttery garlic sauce was a freaking nice condiment!
Spicy Salmon Ramen (Dry)
I have eaten different types of ramen in Singapore but this is the first time i came across dry ramen without any soup! Again, i personally would have given a probational pass for its presentation.
Forget about the spicy salmon (honestly, i didn't manage to steal a bite)! The noodles are the star; soaked in a marvelous concoction of sauces that immediately reminded me of the mee goreng in Indonesia, they tasted absolutely wonderful on its own!
Bendeemer Buffalo Wings
These CDC signature buffalo wings don't come cheap and it can cost as much as S$10 for one buffalo wing! Well, never try never know and it could bloody well be worth the price.
Apart from appearing to be spicy hot, these 50°C BB-wings were nothing like the spiciness i expected. They were so mild; Hot and Crispy fried chicken from KFC may likely be hotter.
However, i confessed that after eating buffalo wings from quite a number of places in Singapore, the ones in CDC tasted the best so far! Steaming white chicken meat, thin layer of fats with a light crisp and a savoury addictive marination that was so yummilicious!
I would like to sink my teeth into one right now!
