The Carving Board is a Western stall within a busy coffeeshop at Yuhua Village in Jurong East which has made a name for its affordable Western food (most of the mains are priced between S$10 to S$15) and beers on-tap. It is an ideal dining destination for hearty Western fare and casual drinks with your friends.
Just a heads up, the place can get super packed in the evening so you should avoid peak dining hours if you prefer a quieter dining experience.
We decided on a plate of Seafood Aglio Olio (S$11), Battered Fish and Chips (S$9.50) and a Classic Grilled Beef Cheeseburger (S$11.50).
The Seafood Aglio Olio had the right amount of seasoning and was neither too oily nor salty. The succulent mussels also blended well with the savoury spaghetti.
The Carving Board’s Fish and Chips were served to us on a wooden board, with the fillets gleaming in a perfectly fried, golden-brown coat. The fish was well-cooked but it did not wow us.
The Cheeseburger was the star of the show. The beef patty was juicy and tender. There were a few charred parts, but that made the meat so much more flavourful. There was nothing special about the fries, but they were nicely fried and will definitely fill you up for your meal.
