The 6ixs Rosti Review: Hawkers With Rosti And Chicken Chop Under $10 In Ghim Moh

15th September 2020

Crisp and fluffy rosti with tasty sides

Update: The 6ixs is permanently closed.

A good rosti, or any rosti at all, is hard to come by in Singapore. Enter The 6ixs, started by a group of friends who took it upon themselves to fill this rosti-sized gap. What started as a roving stand at corporate events and the annual Marina Bay Carnival, selling this Swiss potato fritter, grew into what is now a permanent site in a modern coffee shop at 25 Ghim Moh Link. 

Food at The 6ixs

The 6ixs Rosti

Rosti at The 6ixs is made fresh on-site every day with Russet potatoes from USA. We saw some pre-fried discs of rosti sitting by the pan when we arrived, but these were re-fried when we ordered. Perhaps this allows them to serve the food quicker, but frankly, we didn’t feel anything was amiss when we bit into our rosti.

We had expected the Cheesy Rosti ($7) to come on a hotplate like on their signage, but it arrived on a plate with coleslaw on the side and a big splotch of white cream. This was their homemade sour cream, which was light, creamy and not too tangy. My dining companions enjoyed this with the rosti and cheese, but I personally preferred my rosti without.

The dish was liberally topped with mozzarella cheese, although this was kept to the middle of the rosti, providing an even distribution of melty cheese and crispy fried potato. The melted cheese went well with the rosti, which was lightly crisp on the outside without being over-fried, and fluffy on the inside. We liked that the finer-than-average threads of potato meant more crispy bits.

The 6ixs Rosti Chicken Chop Rosti

My favourite dish of the day was the Classic Rosti with Chicken Chop ($9) ─ a marriage that brought together the crusty cake of potato and a moreish leg of chicken. The boneless leg was well-seasoned, tasting strongly of thyme and various spices that are a house blend. It’s grilled to juicy perfection and drenched in an appetising brown sauce which, together, brings to mind chicken chops of Western food stalls.

The 6ixs Rosti Fish with Sesame Sauce

While not my preferred dish, the Fish and Chips with Sesame Sauce ($8.50) went down well with the rest in my group. A generous fillet of dory is hand-battered and fried to order ─ we saw this for ourselves ─ and served on a bed of fries.

In a double-carb whammy, the plate also comes with a dome of mashed potatoes with brown gravy, and a token scoop of coleslaw to make you feel a bit less guilty. The batter on the fish was not too thick and retained its crunch even after we had taken our photos. The fish was moist and flaky, but we were not entirely sure if we liked it with the sesame dressing. It was an interesting pairing that perhaps detracts from any feeling of jelak-ness you might feel, eating all that fried fish. 

Ambience at The 6ixs

The 6ixs Rosti

Located in a corner coffee shop that’s bright and well-ventilated, there is ample seating available for your rosti fix at The 6ixs. We chose to sit on bar stools at the high tables facing the roadside, where it was windy and we had an unblocked view of the street.

The verdict

The 6ixs Rosti Cheese Rosti

The 6ixs gets rosti right. And for under $10 a serving with a thick cake of rosti and a protein on the side, we think it’s well worth it. It may be a 10-minute walk from Buona Vista MRT Station, but when you consider what you pay and the execution of the dishes, you can hardly complain.
