Secret Recipe is one of the restaurants that my best friends and I love visiting, and we’ve been to many outlets together including Vivo City’s and IMM’s. It’s our first time eating at Plaza Singapura despite walking past it so many times.
There was some event going on – a movie/drama introduction, and everyone was so fanatical over watching the activities which did not even seemed interesting. Secret Recipe has a few booths that had good vantage points from which they can view the event. As a result, many of the customers were glued to their seats despite the fact that they’ve finished eating. It made it hard to get a seat, but we were promptly issued to a seat by one of the staff. I was quite impressed how they did the crowd-control.
We ordered Chicken Lasagna and Spaghetti Meatballs (chicken). The chicken Bolognese was only okay. The flavor felt a bit lackluster, blander than I hoped it would be. I think the best Secret Recipe branch is still at IMM, where they served food of the best taste in their menu.
After the main course we also ordered a black forest cake. I liked the black forest cake since foreverrr so there’s nothing much to complain about it! Except that there could be more blueberries and lesser cream. It was also a bit expensive for the size. $4.50 for one slice. The cakes are priced at $4.20/$4.50/$5.50, depending on the flavor. Naturally, the more ingredients/pricey ingredients, the more expensive.
The chicken lasagna was $9.20++ while spaghetti meatballs was $11.90++.
Overall I think the dining experience was okay, and much of the pleasant part of the experience is the ambience and the service rather than the food.
black forest cake!
