8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro [????] @ Yio Chu Kang Road

Hello Everyone,

this is one long overdue post about 8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro which is situated along Yio Chu Kang Road. My very first entry about 8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro can be found here http://awinsomelife.org/2011/09/03/8-degrees-taiwanese-bistro-%E5%85%AB%E5%BA%A6%E7%A9%BA%E9%97%B4/

So this time round, Baby and I decided to introduce this place to Alvin and offer him a treat!

No GST and Service Charge for their food but I believe that it has already been factored into the listed price.

Alvin and I with Our Drinks

From 8 Degrees

Taiwanese Sausage with Mayonnaise Sauce. Nothing really special about this dish. Pretty simple and easy to prepare. Order only if you have spare cash.

From 8 Degrees

Duck Breast Meat with Mango Salsa. Nothing really special about this dish because its really simple and easy to prepare. However, I must say that the mango salsa was fantastic.

From 8 Degrees

Oyster Egg Omelette [also known as Au Jian]. Honestly, I would rather order this dish from Chomp Chomp as it is better tasting. The sauce is extremely starchy and too sweet for our taste buds. We don’t recommend this dish.

From 8 Degrees

Fried Spicy Chee Cheong Fun. The Chee Cheong Fun was tough and the taste was just bland. We don’t recommend this dish.

From 8 Degrees

Deep Fried Chicken Cutlet. Seriously, I think ordering this from the Shilin Taiwanese Street Stall is much better as they are more flavourful. This dish was just not up to our expectations. We don’t recommend this dish.

From 8 Degrees

Crystal Shrimp Fried Rice. This is the best tasting dish out of the rest of the dishes that we ordered. The fried rice was fragrant and flavourful. However, the crystal shrimp has abit of a raw taste.

Well, as it was the 2nd time that we dined there, we obviously had higher expectations and was hoping that there could be improvements in the quality of food and service. However, the quality of the food was just not up to our standards and we probably would not dine there again as it is not worth the money. Though food quality was below average, there was a slight improvement in their service. Overall, we would generally recommend you to try out this Bistro if you want to explore something new. However, if you are looking for a Bistro that serves quality food, then this place might not be suitable for you.

By the way, parking there can be a challenge as there are limited parking lots available. However, fret not because there is a valet parking service which charges $4 per vehicle. If you spend more than $48.00 at 8 Degrees Taiwanese Bistro, the valet parking fee will be waived!

      Hey Daniel,

      Hmms you might want to pop by and see if the food is up to your standard cause I personally feel that the Taiwanese fare by Four Seasons Taiwanese Cuisine (at Joo Chiat Road) is the best one I’ve tried among the different ones so far. 8 degrees’ food quality I feel is better than Xi Men Ding but can’t beat Four Seasons. Cheers! 🙂
