i was at Bumbu with pharm girls last thursday for lunch! i recall really enjoying the food here 2 years ago when shaun recommended us for class dinner.
thankfully i blogged about my previous visit to Bumbu and so was able to retrieve the old entry and take down a list of dishes that were awesome so we knew exactly what to order in less than 5 minutes!
AN ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE! MUST TRY!
this is one of their star dishes and it certainly lives up to expectations! the tahu has a thin fried skin that makes way for it’s soft, melt-in-your-mouth interior. together with the crispy egg white pieces and the (no idea what kind of) black gravy, it’s simply food-gasmic!!
meat was very tough and dry. kinda regretted ordering this, plus it was rather pricey. well i’ll know better next time to give this a miss!
this one is also another of my favourites and a must try if you visit Bumbu! i don’t really like squid but fry it with butter and oat flakes and i’m sold!!!
the bill came up to $15 per person for the 3 of us (becky already had lunch), which isn’t too bad for such a filling and sumptuous meal! oh by the way, rice is free-flow so you can eat till your stomach burst! great for the guys but not so value-for-money for me cos i usually ask for less rice lol!
Bumbu restaurant is at 44 Kandahar Street, about a 10 minute walk from Bugis MRT. you can check out their menu at their website: http://www.bumbu.com.sg/Menu.php
later, we cabbed to 66 Kampong Bugis to chill at Loysel’s Toy!
this is one of the last few chill outings we have as unemployed graduates ): gotta make the most of the last week of holidays!!!
