The Cartel Bistro

112 Katong has turned out to be a favourite haunt everytime we can't decide where to eat.  Just like how moths are attracted to lights, we walked into The Cartel Bistro because of the vibrant decor. And yes, in case you are wondering, The Cartel Bistro is a new concept store by Cafe Cartel. 

There is a weekday promotion going on and we happened to chance upon the 1-for-1 Chef Recommends Complete Meal (Wednesday). Click here for the promotion (differs every day). This means that you just have to add $3.90 to your set meal and you get another set meal free! (lower price of course) Promotion ends 31st July, applicable for lunch and dinner. 

The soup was served in some cool metal structure. Soup was a little too salty for me but I liked the crunchy bread in it.

The baguette would have been better if it were crispy. Nothing great about it.

We ordered the St Louis Pork Rib ($15.60) with honey glaze. Incredibly huge portion, heaped with fries. I liked the honey sauce and the meat was very tender and succulent.

We also ordered the Grilled Tender Chicken ($15.60). Compared to the Pork Ribs, this was of course a lot smaller. But nonetheless, still grilled well, along with hot piping wedges.

Since it was one for one, our total bill came up to $22.95, after taxes and service charge. Now, how good a deal is that? In addition to all those, you get a drink (coke/coffee/tea/ice green tea etc).

The food was not fantastic, but decent for the price. But couple that with the excellent service, I think this is a good spot if you are are really hungry and looking for something not too expensive! Note that there are different 1-for-1 deals from Monday to Friday though! So if you are picky about your food, you should decide whether you want a seafood meal, pasta meal, steak meal etc. before making your way here!
