It’s been a long time since my last visit to Holland Village, and it seemed like plenty has changed. Looking for dinner, we chanced upon a new restaurant with a quirky name – Everything with Fries (EWF).
The EWF menu looked simple and rather straightforward with starters, mains etc suitably categorized. Since it was our first visit, we went along with our server’s recommendations with their specialty, One Egg Soup, and Skinny Wings for starters.
The One Egg Soup presented a deep-fried batter soaked in creamy soup. The batter, however, was not as crispy or fluffy as I would have expected, and the soup was only passable. Similarly, the Skinny Wings (below) didn’t impress me much either. Average starters overall.
For mains and since I’m always on a constant quest to look for good beef/steak dishes, I went with the Char-Grilled Karubi.
While I was ordering, I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting too much… since EWF wasn’t exactly a steak place. I was, however, pleasantly surprised at how great the dish turned out. The karubi was handled well, and had a melt-in-your mouth texture. The accompanying shoe-string fries (salt & vinegar) and Caesar Salad were good compliments as well.
Overall, the dinner came up to around $25-30 per pax (take note that the Char-Grilled Karubi is more pricey as compared to other mains). Ambiance/environment was minimalistic and clean.
One thing that jumped out was that the good service – the server was enthusiastic and helpful. Although they could do with more prompt service, and granted that it was a busy evening, it was okay.
