There are days when you just crave for food that is more delicately executed, but there are just some days you just want to indulge in simplicity that is well cooked. Many coffee shops and food courts do sell simple delights, but not all of them are able to satisfy your cravings fully because they just lack the punch.
5 Star Corner is a western stall in Hougang Central that sells hotplates, chicken chops, steaks etc, which is very typical of most western places located in coffee shops and food courts before names like Aston’s Express, Lava Rock and Char Grill Bar became familiar to us. I also noticed quite a number of people who were dining there were having western food too.
I ordered the Chicken Chop. The chicken was tender and juicy and was east to cut. The skin was also crispy. The French fries were thin but fried golden, nicely salted and crispy. However it lacked the fluff of potatoes, partially due to its size. The garlic bread is freshly sliced and spreaded with garlic spread by the staff, though I would have preferred it to have a stronger taste of garlic. The coleslaw was a bit of a letdown being lukewarm though.

While 5 Stars Corner isn’t really the top dog of all coffee shop located western stalls as it calls itself to be, its definitely one of the slightly better ones out there that one can find. Just don’t expect it to be an out-of-the-world experience but rather a tested-and-proven formula, and it would be able to satisfy you any day.
