After reading a more than favourable review of this place by a famous foodie, I decided to bring Daphne here for dinner. We initially wanted to have our crispy prata fix at Thomson, but eventually felt Hooked on Heads deserved a try.
The "famous foodie" that I mentioned is none other than Dr Leslie Tay, whose IeatIshootIpost food blog has one of the highest hit rates here in Singapore. It tells how good the review was, since Hooked on Heads has it placed as a large poster inside the restaurant itself.
Fried Beef Kway Teow: 7.8/10
The photos are before and afters, the latter of which was after I took away the garnishing haha. Pretty good stuff, very generous portion of beef and the black sauce used was sweet and tasty. For those who are not exactly sure, "kway teow" is a type of flat rice noodles.
Phad Thai: 7.4/10
Daphne had this, but felt that the one at Joe's Kitchen was better because it was nuttier (more crushed peanuts) and has her favourite "chai poh" (something close to pickled radish). Overall the one here at Hooked on Head's is good too, but could do less with the tomato like sauce that they used. Adequately moist without being too wet, and pleasantly fragrant and sweet.
Banana Fritters Special: 9/10
A splendid choice for dessert really. Yes, I'm gonna say it again, delightfully crisp on the outside, yet still soft and smooth bananas on the inside. The addition of chocolate ice-cream was great too, and having it with the hot banana fritters was just lovely. In fact, we ordered another scoop too =)
