Singaporeans are no strangers to snaking queues and long waits. Much like any other new stall that has sprung up selling pop culture food, the line stretching from the storefront of Say Chiizu has been almost as long as their grilled cheese pull. Okay, I exaggerate a little.
However, we were lucky to have been at the 313@Somerset outlet when there was less of a queue, and decided to find out if the juice was really worth the squeeze.
Before we Gouda to the cheese, let’s talk about the toast. At Say Chiizu, there are 3 flavours of toast to choose from, namely Original, Chocolate, and Charcoal. We were told that the difference in flavours was only in the toast, and not the cheese. So we went ahead and got ourselves the original and chocolate flavours.
The toast was fluffy and light enough so that it did not overpower the cheese, while the crust was crisp, giving the snack a nice bite. The original Hokkaido milk toast was good, but as for the chocolate, I felt that it should have had a more chocolatey taste.
With every bite you take, the thick, creamy grilled cheese fills you up. Apparently, the cheese is made with specially imported Japanese milk and mixed with other cheeses to create the texture for that cheese pull. I was pretty impressed at how for those grilled cheese stretches go! They reach almost an arm’s length!
After a bit, we found that the grilled cheese really filled us up. Even though we were sharing it, we felt rather full as we were finishing off last of the first toast.
Is it worth it? Many people would say that it is not the smartest thing to be paying for what essentially was homemade grilled cheese sandwich, but I beg to differ.
Although it may seem simple on the outside, the effort that went into making this snack is no mean feat. The premium ingredients used are imported from overseas, and made with their own recipes to ensure the best customer experience.
Furthermore, the cheese really fills you up especially if you have a small appetite, so paying that $3.80 for a toast feels like a light meal. Would I buy it again? Yes, and that cheese pull really adds an element of fun to the munch!
