We Western’s western grill store is tad your typical old school western food store, situated in a rustic HDB estate in southern Singapore in the Bukit Merah View hawker center. They are renowned for their large serving portions often paired with sausages. Let’s check them out with a dine-in today.
Furthermore, the store is run by a cheery Chinese auntie who always seems to be covered head to toe, by whom I always like to nickname the “bee keeper auntie”. She is often seen tolling behind the counter grilling heaps of fillets especially during peak mealtimes. Occasionally a middle-aged man helps to man the front counter taking orders and payment.
Try their chicken cutlet
Moreover, I found Me Western chicken and fried items their best offerings. Recommendations include their Chicken cutlet and fish and chips, all going for a rather affordable $7 per plate. This price range is largely dominated in the hawker scene where competing offerings by incumbents Astons restaurants and Collins Grille and Bento western typical cost in the sub $10 range.
Also, their cutlet dishes are served in generous breaded portions. Also, I am pleased to report that the value and quality of We Western dishes far exceeds even more premium offerings like PS Cafe when it comes to their fried foods.
Moreover, if you prefer a less deep-fried offering, their Chicken chops, Lamb chops and Pork chops are similarly priced at $7 per plate. Their grilled choice is a nice and healthier alternative. Also, their beef steak has a slight premium at $8 per plate though it is not one of their stronger dishes.
Large generous portions for the price
Additionally, I particular like the large great portions your meal. Each dish is served with triple sides comprising of straight-cut or crinkle fries, depending on batches, coleslaw and baked beans. It can be quite a filling dinner, especially wrapping up with heavy canned baked beans.
Very traditional hawker-flair indeed. However, I found We Western fries are tad bit on the oily side to my liking. Still you be glad to find several crispy bits too. Also, the offering of straight or crinkle fries are supply-dependent and would differ on your visit.
Also, We western food portions does reminds you of the value offering similarly offered by Chef western we had at Tanglin halt, as well as Wow Wow West at ABC market. Only the dish here is less soggy with a more careful application of sauces.
In addition to the regular grille offerings are an assorted of chicken and pork sausage dishes. In addition, you have the option to pair your western meal with additional sausages or have them as a meal. I would tend to prefer to have them as an add-on to your meal, as they are not filling enough to be substantial for a meal.
Costing-wise, a pork sausage costs $5 individually as a standalone meal or $3 extra as a side add-on with an existing meal. Also, likewise, a chicken sausage costs $2 as an add-on and $4 as a standalone sausage meal, though I would recommend you to have their sausages to go as an extra to your mains.
All in all, that wraps up my look into We Western grill at Bukit Merah view. A joint offering great tasting hawker-style western grill with portions and a price hard to beat in today’s economical climate.
