The Usual Place

I happen to come across the high-raved salted egg pasta on my Instagram feed. Since I'm a Salted egg fan, I knew I had to head there to give it a try! The Usual Place is neighbourhood cafe located in Jurong in the HDB area. By foot, it takes about 5 to 10 mins from Chinese Garden MRT station. The food is really affordable! What you see on the menu, is what you are gonna see on your receipt! No GST and Service charge at all :D
When I entered the cafe, the staff were welcoming and friendly. The cafe has a really simple industrial-like design, with wooden tables and coloured metal chairs. Also, the tungsten bulbs hanging from the ceiling made it really cozy.


NWell of course I came here for the Salted Egg Prawn Pasta so I ordered it right away! The salted egg cream sauce was undoubtly the best I have eaten. It was creamy but not overly thick thus it went really well with the noodles! The prawns were fresh and I liked the little kick of spice from the chilli padi.

Ah, the Aglio Olio is only $4.90! You must be thinking that it would not taste so amazing since it's so cheap but you are wrong! It wasn't too oily yet it was still really tasty.

I left the cafe feeling completely satisfied. With its nice ambiance, excellent service, delicious food and affordable price, I am sure I will be back for more to try the rest on the menu! :)
