The Caffeine Addicts – Ex Air Stewardess Sells Chicken Rice & Kopi in Jalan Besar
More chio bu going into the F&B industry! Meet Merissa Ang, an ex SQ air stewardess, who gave up her job to set up a cafe ‘The Caffeine Addicts’ in Jalan Besar since July. No, you won’t find your typical eggs benedict and coffee here. Instead, what you get is this kaya toast, chicken rice and Vietnamese coffee!
Learning how to cook chicken rice from a chef, Merissa fulfilled her dream of having her own eatery in July. She passes the cooking to the chef while she brings you SQ quality service and smile. Our Chicken Rice Set ($6.50) comes with a plate of rather tender chicken breast, braised eggs, vegetables, soup and rice. The rice grains have got that light chicken and ginger fragrance and it’s not too oily. And quite surprising that the chicken breast is not too tough and drenched with the sauce.
The Ngoh Hiang ($4) fared well too with crispy skin wrapped with prawn and minced pork. The smell of the five spice powder wasn’t too overpowering and it is served with the sweet black sauce. The only glitch today was the Curry Chicken ($6) which was a little bland and watered down. But it comes with generous beancurd puffs (tau pok) and tender chicken, which I believe to go well with the noodles.
