Charly T’s Green Flash (a blend of Green apple, orange and pineapple)
Despite a pretty hectic schedule these days, I managed to squeeze some time for a dinner tasting session at Charly T's newly-opened restaurant within the exciting 112 Katong Mall.
A home-grown brand and concept, Charly T's is an urban fast-casual restaurant that serves signature home-styled dishes from around the world, prepared with the freshest seasonal ingredients.
Once seated, we were offered freshly blended juices. I had the Green Flash (S$6.50) which is a blend of green apple, orange and pineapple. This sweet and sour concoction immediately whetted my appetite.
We were served Charly T's famous Rotisserie Chicken - a quarter chicken of each of the following flavors : the Original Recipe, Black Pepper and Kansas City BBQ with 4 varieties of home-made exotic dips - Hot Sauce, Chimchurri, Roasted Sesame and BBQ. I like both the Chimchurri and Roasted Sesame sauces which go very well with the chicken. But .......
The Rotisserie Chicken which is well-marinated and roasted, already tastes great on it's own without the sauces. I could easily polished off the Kansas City BBQ chicken because it is flavourful, juicy and tender.
Rotisserie Chicken, Original Recipe ($13.00 for quarter chicken + 2 sides, $24.00 for half chicken + 3 sides, $42.00 for whole chicken + 4 sides)
Charly T’s uses fresh, chilled chickens only, no frozen stuff. Diners would be able to taste the difference.
For the sides, we had the German Potato Salad, Sauteed Vegetables, Butter Garlic Rice and Macaroni n Cheese. The Butter Garlic rice is delicious. I'm sure kids will enjoy eating this flavorful rice.
I notice the sides are prepared with healthy eating in mind. Although the chef uses less cheese in the Macaroni n Cheese side, the gravy is still yummy. He also adds in bits of cauliflower.
Charly T's Chicken Cordon Bleu (S$14) looks pretty attractive, it resembles a golden pillow. I am not into fried food, so it is not a dish I would order but the youngsters will love the cheesy chicken and ham. It's one of their hot-selling dishes in I12 Katong.
My first attempt at eating the American Sloppy Joe ($8.50). You know why this is called a Sloppy Joe? It gets all messy upon eating. Good that the chef quartered it for easier eating. :P
I love the bread which is so soft.
These warm and fluffy shredded pancakes, sprinkled with powdered sugar, rum-soaked raisins and served with a generous scoop of home-made Vanilla ice cream with real vailla beans is so heavenly! I am coming back for it during lunch soon.
At a corner of this I12 Katong outlet, I spotted a private room furnished with Peranakan-styled furniture. It is ideal for cosy birthdays and family gatherings.
Charly T's @I12 Katong has its very own outdoor porch, all the more better to chill down for an alfresco experience and watch the evening descend on Katong! It opens till late on certain nights, screening various premier league matches live! You could book the whole balcony for an event or birthday bash. Seats 20 comfortably.
Kids are not forgotten as they could busy themselves with colouring or drawing while their parents eat in peace. :P

This awesome guy prepares all his sauces from scratch! Chatting with him, his passion for food and desire to create a wonderful dining experience for each diner is so touching.
