One week day, I was very hungry and there wasn't any cooked food in the fridge. I am one of those people who cannot bear the thought of cooking after work. I just can't do it.
So I nipped over to Jaya Grocer's Fresco. I have been eyeing what they have to offer but I have never tried. My partner always says that supermarkets use near expired chicken to cook their roasted chicken. Aiyah, this fellow. He has a lot of theories.
So anyway, I went to the counter and had a look at the menu. I decided to have the BBQ chicken and it comes with coleslaw and mashed potatoes. I was asked if I wanted the top or lower half of the chicken and of course I chose the leg.
The server also offered to warm up the chicken but I told her not to bother as I could do that at home. She was very generous with the mashed potatoes and I was really looking forwards to the carb-fest hee..hee..
The meal is packed in this tray-like container.
It was quite a big piece of leg and generously doused with BBQ sauce. No, I did not warm it up, I just dived right in. I'm afraid the chicken was hard and on the dry side. The BBQ sauce made it palatable.
The mashed potatoes was huge. It had cheese in it. I think they topped the tray of mashed potatoes with cheese and baked it to melt the cheese.
I was given a small container of gravy for the mashed potatoes.
Very nice, but I did not care much for the cheese. It would be really nice if it was warm.
The coleslaw was all right, it had raisins in it and they were quite hard.
The meal was only passable but a very filling one which served its purpose.
