When people talk about the North of SG, CAFE would never pop up in their head. TBH when I hear the word North, I only think of Malaysia and Yishun *HAHAHA* But everything changed when I visited Common Chef Bistro in Sembawang.
I ordered 3 of their signature dishes. Shepherd’s Pie, Rich Man Burger and Soul Food. All three dishes were equally delicious and each held its own again another!
If there is only one dish I could order again, it would be their Shepherd’s Pie! What I really like about it is that everything in their Pie is made in house. For people who don’t like lamb(MEE), this is a good place to try as they replace it with minced chicken meat! They serve the Shepherd’s Pie piping hot so you can get a good cheese pull shot once its served!
I was pleased with the generous portion of tater tots when Rich Man Burger was served! Nacho cheese sauce was given on the side and the boss told me it can be poured on the burger or tater tots depending on your preference. Their burger was really interesting as the combination was something I did not see anywhere else! There was a homemade sauce, scrambled eggs, truffle-infused mushroom, and chorizo patty!
P.S. Rich Man Burger is only available on weekends!
On the menu, is was stated Soul Food so I was confused about what would be served and the boss happily explains to me the meaning! Basically ‘soul food’ is a term from America and when they say ‘soul food’ it means that the food reminds them of childhood/hometown or it warms their soul to the core.
Chicken & Waffles to put it in layman’s term. I find it cute that they served the maple syrup and butter in a shot glass but other than being cute, it didn’t have any practical use LOL. Food-wise, the chicken was juicy and tender and had me going for more! One thing I wondered till now…where did 1/4 of my waffle go! XD
Overall, Common Chef Bistro is one of the better Cafes I have visited in the North. Honestly, if no one told me about it I wouldn’t have known it existed! So if you are in the area next time, why not consider Common Chef Bistro instead of White BeeHoon?
