The rice bowls were lacking in taste. Asked for medium rare steak but got a more-than-well-done steak. The only saving grace was the pizza fries (even then their new menu had cut out the crowd favourite Tater Tots. A pity).

Definitely a dessert to share despite the small portion. Topped with honey-glazed cinnamon and cream of a viscous consistency, this pecan pie is loaded with the sugars. Pecans topping the pie were very fragrant, but my lasting impression of this dish is that it was just incredibly sweet. If you have a very sweet tooth, go for this. Note that the whiskey is practically nonexistent taste-wise though.

The double cheeseburger is an all-American (or so they proclaim on their menu) burger graced with a double beef patty, bacon ketchup, lettuce, tomato, gherkins AND CHEESE (not indicated on menu), that is served with crispy, thick-cut fries. There’s nothing to be excited about for the burger itself. While the star of the show—the double beef patty—came in an undeniably generous portion, being probably thrice the thickness of a Shake Shack beef patty, the patty was tougher than expected and definitely not as juicy as the latter. Though I did enjoy the special sauce (I assume it’s the bacon ketchup) that topped the burger very much. The fries were excellent, being fluffy on the inside but crispy on the outside. I’m also glad I asked for the tartar sauce from the Calamari [$16++] dish to accompany my fries in addition to the given ketchup. I don’t know what they added inside the sauce, but it’s divine.

Staff was very friendly and very accommodating to our requests, though they seem a bit short-handed. They quickly helped us use our ChopeVoucher (30% off from 11am to 6pm on Sat and Sun + More options), so definitely remember to book via Chope and grab a voucher before going if you intend to spend more than $50 (the minimum spend for reservations).

The last time I tried Alter Ego was 2 years ago, and I still remembered that the food was decent back then. However, not only did my dinner last night not meet expectations, it was hands-down the worst meal I've had in recent times. It was so bad that I just had to write this review as an act of service to everyone else considering to eat here. DON'T!!!!
I haven't written many reviews even after 2 years of using Burpple Beyond. So the fact that I even bothered to write this review says a lot.

Seafood pasta:
- bland
- sauce was obviously canned sauce (and not a good one at that)
- seafood was chewy and definitely NOT fresh
- horrible sight to see the oil left behind at the end of my meal

Calamari:
- extremely oily
- rubbery and had no bite to it, almost choked on it
- unseasoned, no taste at all
- batter was flaky and did not stick to the squid
- sauce was generic

Service was terrible. We asked to shift to the tables outside because the music was too loud and the flickering Christmas lights gave us a headache. Server's first reply was simply "cannot". We asked why, her first excuse was "the tables are wet from the rain", but we knew they were not. Her second excuse was "we have reservations, all full." But at the end of our meal, the place was only 40% full.

Paid $36 for this nonsense.
My friend and I had to find another place for a second meal because this was so unsatisfying and made us feel sick after eating because of how oily the food was.

Don't waste your time, money or calories here.
Safe to say I will not be returning to Alter Ego ever again for the rest of my life.

The standard fish and chips that came with buttered red tilapia fillet and fries. I felt that the ratio of flour to fish was pretty nice, and the fish tasted quite fresh too!
