Five & Dime

We paid a spontaneous visit to Five & Dime for dinner, bringing along three buddies! We've been here a couple of times for brunch and have loved their Eggs Benny. And now, its time to give their dinner a try!



Fish & Chips - $22
I felt that this was best eaten with your hands! The size of the pieces of crispy fish was perfect for your fingers to pick them up and dip them into the sweet ketchup and yummy tartare sauce. The tartare sauce was really special. It was really tasty I cleaned up the whole serving of tartare sauce!

The chips were crispy and really yummy too. The buddies were saying that the chips were unique and good. Sister N who ordered Fish & Chips too also praised the dish! Being one with a tiny stomach, she had great difficulty finishing this. I couldn't finish my fish and chips too and had to seek help from the other three pigs haha.

Fresh fish, great sauce, crispy chips and delicious on the whole!

Mac & Cheese - $16
This mac and cheese looks simple but as they say, looks are deceiving. Infused with creamy lobster sauce, this dish was tasty and contrary to popular belief, not the least bit "ger-lat". I was secretly jealous of XM who ordered this... HAHA. Three types of cheese make up the thick layer of fragrant cheese. So good! Might be a little small on the portion side for some though

Cajun Chicken - $18
Grilled chicken maryland with mashed potato, corn and tangy tomato sauce.
The mashed potato is hidden under the slab of chicken. Brother Z couldn't stop praising the mashed potato.. HAHA. Excuse me the highlight is the chicken maybe? Haha the chicken was tender and well-cooked! In Brother Z's words, this dish was "sick" and the mashed potato was "too sick" haha

The Burger - $23
As you can see, this is pretty huge. Haha and X said the burger was not bad

Our buddies were really pleased with dinner and we were really glad they liked it! I'm gonna get the mac and cheese the next time I go there. Hahaha. We wanted to try the youtiao churros but that wasn't on their menu anymore. Does anyone know if they removed it? We wanted to try the pork belly and the beef but they were out of it. Must be good! Will try them when we return the next time round!

Service was efficient and the waitress was very attentive and cheerful. I really like such people. They really make the whole dining experience better.
