Disappointed with the Old Bay Onion Rings ($12++). Too greasy, & too large that it's difficult to eat. Not much reason for me to order this again.

Service was also pretty poor. Each time I spoke to the waitress, e.g. "Can I have a glass of white wine?", she wouldn't respond verbally or even nod her head in acknowledgement. She would just purse her lips, then walk away. πŸ™„

The good & the bad; Truffle Fries ($8++) were marginally addictive, Chicken Chunks ($10++) were abysmal.

I have a HUGE issue with food being served & not matching what's on the menu.

These are not shoestring fries. My accompanying mayonnaise with the chicken chunks never appeared (at least the nacho cheese did). & I have doubts on whether tempura flour was actually used for the chicken chunks.

I don't eat fried food - the only exception being French Fries & actual tempura battered things. Needless to say I was pretty disappointed on the whole.

If you expect the Heng Hua Fried Beehoon ε…΄εŒ–η‚’η±³η²‰ to be more flavourful than it looks, well, you're completely wrong.

Might have been an off day, but this was the most bland-tasting, unsatisfying dish I've had in a long time. & this coming from someone who is used to eating healthier home-cooked food with less salt/oil/etc... You know it's gotta be pretty bland.

Wasn't impressed by how the clams were also quite sandy/gritty - which is a slight turn off for me, but I know is a HUGE turn off for some people.

Perhaps it was in part my fault for letting someone who eats like a mouse order my food. I inhaled this small portion ($4) in record time & it barely filled me up. In fact, if I ate 2 plates of this, I wouldn't even be half full.

But I wasn't about to order another plate, duh, because this was so unsatisfying.

I'm hoping the other dishes are much, much better... But with so many other good stalls to choose from at Alexandra Village Food Centre, I'm quite sure I won't be heading back to this one anytime soon.

Kaya Thick Toast ($1.20) from 1970's Best Coffee 七十年代 (#01-10). Kaya is pretty watery & bread is nothing special. Wouldn't recommend.

My least favourite dish was the mushroom soup - is it just me or is inflation making soups more expensive? For the price tag (not part of any 1-for-1 promo), this was too watered down for my liking. Would've preferred something chunkier & with more robust flavour.

Everything about this night was disappointing, except for the nice live music & above average casual dining food. & the fact that out of the 6 main dishes I ordered, 3 were free because Pietro Ristorante Italiano is a Burpple Beyond partner.

Initially, I thought it was my mismatched expectations - I was hoping to have a nice quiet dinner, but the live music (though well played/sung) in the background was so loud that we had to shout-talk to hear each other. Ok, maybe that was my bad.

It then took them 10 whole minutes to take our order.

Our food only came >30 minutes later. That was the mushroom soup. The first pasta came 12 minutes thereafter. Remaining main courses came in intervals of 10-15 mins, one by one. Painfully, we ate our meal "zhichar"/communal-eating style. Had this been a meal where nobody shares their food, it would've been an even more unpleasant experience.

Final straw was when their credit card machine didn't work when I was paying for my meal. A few customers before me had difficulties paying with credit cards as well.

Clearly they were understaffed & operationally poor at executing. I really regret choosing this as a location to celebrate my birthday. All of us were so tired at the end of the night.

Oh, & here's a tip: If you intend to surprise the birthday girl with tiramisu, putting the plates & spoons in the table 15 mins before you bring the surprise out is a DEAD GIVEAWAY.

It's not a big deal to me, having a surprise ruined.... But you should've seen the look on everyone's face when the waiter did that. Like, bro, wtf u doin.

Unfortunately definitely not coming back. Especially since this is quite a long drive away from home for me. I'm too tired to even write about the food - so here's a collage of what we ate, & let me try to put this experience behind me.

Unfortunately, the dark chocolate cake ($5.80++) fell below expectations & I didn't even feel like I wanted to finish it. It was very dry, felt way too frozen, & I really didn't enjoy it. Just stick to the cocktails, really.

The Cheesy Burger ($10.90 nett) might have also been a case of mismatched expectations. The patty wasn't a whole portobello mushroom like I thought it'd be. It was a minced mushroom kind of patty which couldn't hold itself together because it was not compacted tightly enough. Upon first bite, this already disappointed me. The sweet potato fries were the only respite.

Perhaps I should've ordered the Buddha Bowl ($9.90 nett) which looks better & might taste better.

I'm not really one to eat vegan food, but Soul ALife piqued my curiosity. However, my experience here was less than desired - might have been a case of mismatched expectations? I don't know.

The Mac and Cheese ($7.90 nett) looked great in pictures & reviews - was pleasantly surprised to find this was actually a full portion enough for a meal, not like the appetizer-size that I was expecting.

But upon first bite, I wasn't sure how I felt about it. It didn't have that authentic cheesy feel that I was looking for. A few bites in, I started to regret ordering it. Eventually, my partner & I didn't finish it; we left 1/5 untouched because it was just too salty to handle. Definitely not ordering this again πŸ˜”

Craving a burger but unfortunately the signature Burffle ($18) didn't satisfy my cravings. The waffles were crispy & awesome as usual, but the beef patty fell flat - it was too salty & also overcooked. Overall, the flavours in this dish were too one dimensional, even with the animal-style sauce.. Wouldn't recommend it.

The Classic Chocolate Lava Cake ($12++) was probably the most disappointing of all. It felt like a microwaved lava cake! Yes, it's great that the lava actually flows... But this wasn't anything very special. Would not recommend.

The Mushroom Soup ($6+) wasn't on the house - paid for it with an Eatigo 30% discount. I thought it was reasonable though would've been better if it were thicker, but my partner felt it was overly peppery.
