It took me awhile to convince myself to order this $33 braised beef short rib off the menu because I thought it was too expensive. But I'm so glad I did!!!!! The beef was so tender (and fatty) you won't need a knife to eat it. The meltingly succulent beef cut was braised in the rich and sweet sauce leaving the flesh so flavourful even at the thickest end of the cut. This brought my expectations of beef short ribs to another level!! Loved it!

The food here always screams Comfort to me! Trying out the Nachos cheese and Steak Pie that comes with a side of mash potato and fresh salad greens ($11.90). I was half expecting the steak filling to be rather dry and limp. However, when I cut open the delicate pie crust, the meat chunks appeared tender and juicy. The marinate was delicious and I fully enjoyed biting into each tender beef chunk that will not get stuck between your teeth, nothing of that sort. But! The Nachos cheese spread over the pie was underwhelming. When eaten together, the fragrant buttery pie crust seemed to overpower the taste of that layer of cheese. Maybe the cheese would have had a louder voice if it was drizzled over the beef inside the pie. 😍

The dishes here don't suffer the one-dimensional fate like some thai food we have here in Singapore. The flavours of the Pad Thai were complex, not overly oily, salty or spicy. The famous Watermelon Fried Rice was superb! Again, the dish was well-balanced and refreshing as we bite into the large watermelon chunks, so addictive we just wanted more after each mouthful. Quality ingredients were used so the meal was really value for money!!

Was quite disappointed at both dishes from the Christmas Special menu. The ravioli didn't look very appetizing, they looked limp as if they just came out of the microwave before serving. But the filling:dough ratio was just right! The basil white wine butter sauce was really fragrant and the lobster filling was quite tasty too. The pizza fell short of my expectations as well. The crust was too wet and the turkey meat were dry and hard. ): Great service though!

Generous amounts of Prawn+Salmon+Avocado on al dente pasta in rich, creamy sauce = SHIOK!

$68 per paella for 2 pax. So this 2 plates were supposed to feed 4? >< I think we're gonna go for desserts elsewhere now.. Rice was a little too gooey but nice and fragrant crust at the bottom.. Seafood wasn't really fresh ): Looks good but taste mediocre and not worth the money

Mediocre pasta ): Aglio olio style, too oily and too spicy.. But the lobster was very very fresh, loved each bite of buttery, moist and succulent flesh! So... Go for the seafood but not the pasta mains.

Another new restaurant has opened in Big Box! Called Twenty15 restaurant grill bar. What will they be called next year? 😂😂 That aside, I WOULD HAVE NEVER EXPECTED SUCH GORGEOUS DISH TO BE SERVED AT BIG BOX! (Never thought this place can be "Atas" oops!) I couldn't be happier with the Salmon Tataki dish I ordered. My eyes just glistened when it was served! The tuna was very well seasoned but the crust could be just a little crispier. The sides of spinach and mushroom tartare and potato stack were great compliments to the tuna. The vinegrette sauce is perfect for this dish because it does not overpower the taste of the tuna. Reasonably priced at $25!

A great start to my meal with the Fried risotto balls. Crispy and light outer crust batter over moist risotto. There were mint leaves accompanying the risotto balls that made the dish more refreshing! I would like to have more mint leaves though. xD Next was the delicious Funghi Pizza, freshly made thin flatbread crust was crispy and light. I normally would not finish the crust of pizzas but this one I just couldn't stop myself from finishing the whole thing! The first bite was cheesy and then the strong earthy mushroom flavor just cuts through immediately!! There were also charred onions that were caramelized to add mild sweetness to the pizza. Lastly, rockets were fresh with very slight bitterness to balance out the intense flavors of he other ingredients.

So much flavor in that foam gravy over fluffy couscous! Perfect pan-seared flaky salmon with extremely crispy skin!

Risotto is finally back in Pepperlunch!! $15.90 for a risotto set with a drink and salad. It was a creamy and cheesy risotto but not cooked with short grain risotto rice though. But it tasted good anyway, I mean, its rice mixed with loads of cheeeeese!

Chanced upon this cafe while shopping at Big Box. The concept is just like Ikea where you order and move down the production line with your food tray trolleys. This place actually has much more variety compared to Ikea and the food is actually quite decent! The salmon was well-cooked and flaky, the lamb stew and beef goulash were not too bad as well. The meat was tender and cooked with onions and shallots for sweetness. I felt that beef goulash had too much carbs (mash potato+bread). All sets ($8.50) comes with a main, salad/soup and dessert. I'm a student so only $6 for a main and salad Yay!! Salad veges were fresh and crunchy but desserts are soso. Refillable drinks at only $1. Worth revisiting for fast and wallet-friendly meals!
