Ex-Cicheti Chef Serves $7.80 Spaghetti Carbonara With Crispy Pork Lard At Hip Hawker Stall In Bukit Merah
Eightisfy Western offers old-school Western fare from an industrial estate canteen. It’s helmed by a hawker who used to be a pasta chef at popular Italian restaurant Cicheti.
The catchily-named Eightisfy (a play on ‘satisfy’) Western is a Western food stall opened by three guys “born in the 80s” – Lu Cheng Kai, 39, Chua Boon Ping and Steven Chew, both 40. Located in a hip canteen within an industrial estate in Bukit Merah Central, it may be a little tricky finding the place – keep your eyes peeled for the Maddox Canteen Bar signboard when entering the estate’s carpark.
The one-month-old stall is in good company, with neighbours like offshoots of the popular Rong Fa ( Mui Song) Minced Meat Noodle and Fei Fei Wanton Mee. The kitchen is helmed by a former chef from Italian restaurant Cicheti, Cheng Kai, who serves old-school western dishes like chicken chop and “local-style pasta” including carbonara and aglio olio.
