1) Lousy chicken cutlet which made me regretted ordering it, I'm better off eating KFC chicken.

2) Normal beef with rice but so not worth the price.

3) Pathetic attempt at making strawberry yoghurt drink which was full of sour strawberry bits & slightly artificial strawberry flavour.

    I tried this restaurant once, and I don't think I will be visiting it again. After trying it out, I don't understand why there is always a queue during dinner time. Perhaps it is just me, who can't accept its taste.

    I, too, tried the Taiwan Vermicelli and find the soup excessively starchy. I find its dishes spicy although it is not stated on the menu. I can't recall what dishes I tried as it a long time ago. But I do remember that the food is not nice.

    However during tea-time, they offer set meal which come with a drink and toasted bread with various spread, like Kaya, peanut butter and etc. Also I recall that there is special set meals for students.

      Jostled with the crowds at Jurong Point's newly opened extension to have a go Lai Lai Casual Dining - a seemingly popular beef noodles *** pseudo Taiwanese eatery. There was a steady stream of people queuing up to get a seat in the eatery so we naturally assumed that this place was of a certain acceptable standard.

      The bulk of the seating at this eatery is open concept, which means that people from the upper levels of the mall can view you from the top and tables are squeezed uncomfortably close to each other to maxmize revenue. And honestly, the cow on the menu looked like it had just been hit by mad cow disease.

      Fried Beancurd - This dish was very run off the mill. Crisp on the outside but not soft on the inside, the beancurd was overly deep fried which resulted in a harder then usual exterior.

      Pepper Salt Chicken - This dish was another disappointment. I mean, how bad can chicken taste like right? Wrong! The chicken had more flour then meat and came across as tough, bland and oily. Can someone tell me where the salt and pepper went?

      Taiwan Beef Noodle - Lai Lai's purported signature/star dish and I have to admit that it was the best amongst all the other terrible dishes. Not that it was anywhere near what I had expected initially when I was still in the queue. The noodles were of the flatter variant and carried a bit of bite but the soup wasn't flavourful enough. The beef pieces, which amounted to about 4 - 5, came across as a tad too tough.

      Taiwan Vermicelli - The only time I ate Taiwan vermicelli aka mee sua was when I was still a kid and my grandmother would cook it for me during my Chinese birthday. Though its been a long time since I last ate mee sua, I don't remember it tasting as awful as Lai Lai's rendition. The soup was very starchy and not to mention bland. Ingredients were minimal as well and half of bowl of the vermicelli remained, for obvious reasons.

      On hindsight, the queues were probably formed due to the herd mentality of Singaporeans and definitely not for the food quality. Our dinner cost the 2 of us $30, which isn't expensive for a dinner, but definitely expensive for such quality of food. Never again!

      See all my pictures here.
