The whole dish was just tasty, thanks to the pepper sauce for steak, cream for prawns, and the impressive balsamic vinegar for salad. But it was a little bit over-grilled to me, as dry.So to say as a satisfying meal for this price. continue reading

With its newest outlet at Balestier, Collin's has definitely outperformed itself with its slight rustic design and pretty spacious interior. What's more, they have a special woodfire oven used to serve handmade pizzas!Living up to the expectations of the woodfire oven, the 12-inch pizzas were thin and crispy at the edges. Collin's Special had especially juicy mushrooms and the sausages were nicely done. For seafood lovers, Frutti Di Mare is a pizza you've got to try. Its succulent shrimp, together with the soft crabmeat, mussel, pesto, and creamy cheese, created a burst of flavours in my mouth.The other main dish that we tried was the Signature Duck Confit. I'm usually not a fan of duck, but I have to say this is definitely the softest duck I've ever had. Although the sauce is a little too strong for my liking, it does compliment the mango salad, making the dish more refreshing.Besides the main dishes, finger food are my favourites. Collin's offers an Appetizer Platter with buffalo wings, potato noodles prawn rolls, pork sausages and tempura squid. I particularly liked the buffalo wings - a dash of spiciness, not too strong, not too bland. The pork sausages were pretty worth it too, although the potato noodles prawn rolls might have tasted better if warmer.Sweet-tooths, you're in luck! The desserts we tried, Baked Caramel Banana and Grand Marnier Orange Souffle, will definitely not disappoint you. The baked banana literally melted in my mouth! Though in my opinion, I felt that the fruits could either be bigger pieces, or they should just do without it altogether. I also felt that the concept of their dessert is very interesting - having different plate designs for the same dish. The Chocolate Banana Shake that I had was pretty decent, thick but not too thick. Definitely could do with a slightly more chocolatey taste to it.Christmas MenuFrom the 2015 Christmas Gourmet Menu, we tasted the Winter Potato Salad with Ham and Chestnuts as well as the Santa's Baked Seafood Parcel.To me, the concept of having chestnuts with potatoes in the same dish was pretty novel to me. And I especially liked the idea of having cubed hams (instead of sliced), as it gives the chewiness to the whole dish on the overall. However, the potatoes can be a little too hard and the chestnuts were a little too mushy for me.I thought that the food presentation was really witty - like unwrapping a Christmas present!  The salmon was a little fishy and not consistently done (tasted a little different from two different plates). But the rest of the seafood in the parcel was pretty well done. The calamari were soft to chew, and the prawns were also de-shelled.This Collin's may be a little out of the way, but their woodfire pizzas is worth visiting for. Another good thing is, even though this is an upgraded version of Collin's from our neighbourhood hawker centres, the price is still pretty much the same - definitely a satisfactory experience.  continue reading

Recently opened at Shaw Plaza is the "atas" Collin's Grille, the latest and largest outlet to date. The "die die must try" item is their exclusive handmade pizzas, cooked in wood stove oven, which can only be found in this outlet. The Collin's Special Handmade Pizza (S$16.80) and the Frutti Di Mare Handmade Pizza (S$16.80) have excellent thin crust topped with deliciously cheesy toppings. The Collin's Special would suit meat lovers with their variety of sausages, ham, bacon and salami, and the Frutti Di Mare is highly recommended for seafood lovers like me. The cheesy creamy sauce goes so well with the seafood that I just can't get enough of it. Also included in the picture below is the US Crisp Cut Fries (S$3.90) and the classic Appetizer Platter (S$18.90) which has a selection of favourite finger foods like deep fried squid, assorted sausages, buffalo drumlets and potato noodle prawn roll. Collin's introduced a few new items for the Christmas Menu. First up is the Winter Potato Salad with Ham and Chestnuts (S$5.90). The sweet and tangy honey mustard sauce is an excellent complement to the salad and as an appetizer. However, the potatoes were of varying degree of softness, some were crunchy and some were mushy. Next on the Christmas Menu is the Santa's Baked Seafood Parcel (S$11.90). The salmon tastes a little fishy by itself but with the lemon and the tomato sauce that fishy taste is removed accentuates the seafood flavor perfectly. Definitely a must-try for seafood lovers. Let's not forget the Signature Duck Confit (S$13.50). I might not be a connoisseur on duck confit but never have I tasted a duck this soft. The duck leg is crispy on the skin and with a slight push of the fork the meat seperates from the bone. The texture of the meat is a little too soft and mushy for my liking but it was truly an enjoyable experience. Eating the desserts was a unique and sinful experience as it was my first time eating a Baked Caramel Banana with Vanilla Ice Cream (S$6.90) and a Grand Marnier Orange Souffle (S$7.90). The baked banana was surprisingly good. The sweet, warm and squishy taste and texture was something I have never experienced before. The souffle was certainly an interesting first experience. It felt like I was eating foam, except the foam was sweet and smooth, with the fragrance of orange. Definitely worth trying. Chocolate Avocado Milkshake (S$3.90) - A must try if you're a fan of thick and sweet avocado milkshakes! continue reading
