Overeasy | When the going gets tough, the tough gets easy

When it comes to comfort food, Overeasy never takes it easy. The American diner and bar is situated in two centrally-located venues; Orchard Liat Towers and One Fullerton. While the Fullerton outlet presents a more posh-bar ambience for unwinding and chilling, the Orchard outlet stood out as a scene from the High School Musical, where American school kids hang out after school. Think retro parties and teenagers skating on their monochrome checkered floor.

To celebrate midweek, I sometimes head down for a quiet lunch retreat, and here are three of my favourite dishes up to date.

For a starter, I always go for the Pacific Coast Clam Chowder ($14) which I absolutely adore. Besides a generous portion of clams, you will be surprised by the Bacon Bits and drizzles of White Wine in your soup. For savory food lovers, this is a must-order. An extremely savory and comforting bowl of goodness you must not miss. As you scrape to the bottom of the bowl,  you will be craving for more. 

When Overeasy says that they take their comfort food very seriously, you've got to believe them. Well, simply because their Truffled Mac 'N' Cheese With Wild Mushrooms ($18) is to the point. The proportion of the creamy cheese is just enough to soak the macaronis and the wild mushrooms. The truffle is the main star of the dish; carefully shredded over the Mac 'N' Cheese for that additional seasoning. The taste gets a little overpowering, but that is precisely the point of this dish. If you ain't a truffle lover, just go for the Good Ol' Mac and Cheeks. You get the exact same goodness but you get shredded cheese instead. 

If you don't already know by now, here's the secret to eternal happiness: Ending your meals with waffles and ice-cream. The warmly toasted waffles comes with Mixed berries and Vanilla Bean Ice-cream ($12), and that's not all, you get drizzles of strawberry and chocolate sauce. I love how the warm waffles and sweet cold ice-cream mashes together. Warm and fluffy waffles never go wrong. 

On my next visit, burgers and pastas will inevitably be on my order list.
