So this is my first time to taste Impossible Meat. If no one told me this is made from Soy Protein Concentrates and a bunch of other stuff, I would not have been able to tell the difference, either from visual or from the taste. More expensive than the usual burgers at 12.90 a pop. But if you thing about saving the planet from greenhouse gases and you are still getting a taste very close to real burger, why not?

I’ll be back

One of the best grilled chicken chops I have had from a hawker stall. The sauce is fantastic and the chips are crispy. Be prepared for a long wait.

Good selection of Tapas, hot and cold appetisers, grilled meat and wine. Try to get a seat outdoors and enjoy view of Sentosa opposite. Service was slower than usual, I think they are understaffed due to COVID.

May come back with another group, people who likes to chill in al fresco dining atmosphere.

A down to earth (including prices) cafe serving pretty legit Italian food. For appetiser I ordered the Foie Gras with Truffle sauce. The pan seared foie Gras melts in mouth, with the truffle sauce accentuating the taste of the Foie Gras.

For mains, I ordered the Tagliatelle with Hokkaido Uni and Nero Seafood Risotto. The tagliatelle was al dente and the Uni was fresh. The Nero risotto fully absorbed the flavour of the seafood broth and the squid ink. Heavenly.

I’ll be back to try their Pork Collar and Tenderloin from their grilled meat section.

Equivalent of Collins, this new comer has a bigger selection of burgers. We ordered the grilled chicken and it came with a bun and coleslaw. Surprisingly the star was the bun. Lightly panfried and brushed with butter, it was fluffy and soft. The chicken was normal. The disappointment was the coleslaw. Tasted like cold cabbage with watered down mayonnaise.

Next I am back, I’ll make sure I order something that does not come with coleslaw.

Western burger joint with all the usual trappings. Food was good but a bit pricey for burgers. But when you consider the location at Marina Bay Sands, anything cheaper means Bread Talk, Putien, Ippudo or Food Court.

Been there done that. Not coming back.

Quite Italian restaurant in Alexandra. We ordered their Prosciutto Ham pizza and the Glazed Pork Chop. The pizza was quite ordinary but the pork chop leaves you craving for more.

Will come back to try the other items on their menu.

We booked a table next to the water. Unfortunately in the evenings, the tide is out so the view was not so fantastic. However there was no funky smell coming from the exposed mangrove next to us to spoil our evening. With a cool breeze and setting sun, a picturesque environment for an evening dinner. Speaking of dinner, the grilled tiger prawns were tasty and sweet. The BBQ ribs were also very nicely done with tender meat coming off the bones easily. Both dishes came with grilled pineapples which is interesting although the quality of the pineapples were only so so being very fibrous. Still it goes well with the prawn and the ribs.

Definitely coming back for lunch next time when the tide is up.

Fried chicken and biscuits. Bacon and hash. Not the type of Western food that Singaporeans are used to. The chicken was very salty in taste. The hash was mor
Interesting. Seems to be potato infused with minced mean and then pan fried to a crispy patty.

One of the cheaper options for a meal at MBS. Doubt if I’ll be going back there anytime soon.

Step into the restaurant and you will feel instantly transported to France. A renovated shop lot, the decor is very French and so I am expecting authentic French cooking. We ordered Foie Gras for our hot appetiser and it did not disappoint. Melts in your mouth, the foie gras is very fresh tasting with just a sprinkle of salt.

The rib eye was a tad over cooked on the outside with the middle closer to rare. The surprise was the lobster and seafood thermidor with buttered rice. The pieces of lobster and scallops where drenched in thick flavourful gravy and the buttered basmati rice was very fragrant and goes well with the thermidor gravy.

The confit duck was normal although I must say this is one of the few that I have had in Singapore that has a crispy skin but tender duck meat underneath. It was also easy to debone.

We were promised a dessert to celebrate my friends birthday but obviously there was a lack of communication between the staff and kitchen as we had to ask for the dessert which ended as the same madeleines they already served us earlier. Made us feel very cheap to have to ask for something so simple as a birthday celebration dessert. Big disappointment.

Unless I am craving authentic French food, not sure I’ll be back because of this negative experience at the end of an otherwise near perfect dining experience.

Damn impossible to book for dinner but lunch slots are available. The house specialty Beef Wellington took 30 minutes to prepare and it lived up to its fame!

I’ll be back!

Went to Buddie Hoagies at Bukit Timah Shopping Center. Ordered my usual sirloin steak with sides and upsized to set meal. Steak was cooked medium as requested. Try to get there before 6.30pm on a weekend to avoid the queue
