A neighbourhood delight: Next Door Deli

It's amazing how one thing can lead to another in a good way. Cute Cute was scratching his head about getting a birthday cake for a friend when he recalled that Pine Gardens in Ang Mo Kio whips up very good alcoholic cakes. So he decided to go down with Ms Body Beautiful to grab one. At Pine Gardens, they decided to lunch at Next Door Deli's, enticed by the carpet grass setting.

Next Door Deli has a system of ordering... Step 1, grab your drinks
Step 2, choose your sides and desserts...
Oooo looks yummy...
Step 3, order your main course
Curry Chicken:
Cute Cute enjoyed this dish. Portions were rather generous and it is worth the $6 +. A slightly spicier version of the nonya chicken curry. Curry gravy was not too lemak and went very well with the fluffy white rice.
Stir-Fried Mee Siam
The stir-fried mee siam is only available once every 2 weeks and it does not disappoint. Although it came without gravy, the dry mee siam was fragrant and piquantly sweet-sourish. The fried chicken wing also came as a perfect savoury complement to the dish.
While eating, the neighbourhood kitty came by to say Hi!
Aww.... so cute... Any cat is welcome around the Lions.
Lemongrass drink
A good refresher for a balmy day

Stir fried laksa
The stir fried laksa, also another item that is only available once every 2 weeks, is all spicy goodness. Tasted a little different from your usual wet laksa, reminded Cute Cute of stir fried chilli mee. Still, the laksa is something worth trying.

Margarita Chiffon:
Now this dessert is unique. The margarita chiffon do not just taste heavenly, there is an element of playful fun to it too. I will not spoil the surprise, just order it, follow the simple steps and enjoy.
