Sirloin Steak
Glad to taste some improvement from our previous visit. The steak was more flavourful and succulent.

Spicy Seafood Pasta with Grilled Scallops
Unfortunately, the same couldn’t be said for the pasta. The sauce was diluted and lacked the zest and sweetness we were expecting. The seafood was alright but somehow didn’t go quite well with the sauce.

Grilled Fish Sambal
One of Swensens’ best offerings so far. The sambal sauce was very tasty and authentic and coupled with the dory that was fresh and soft, this is one hot dish not to be missed!

Deep Fried Blue Mussels
Another miss. The mussels were not fresh. To make things worse, they were coated with a thick layer of flour that left us feeling sick, and our palates, overbearing.

Spice ‘N’ Chick
Thankfully, the fried chicken cubes were good. I especially like the marinate which gave it a distinctive aroma and punch. Great for starters!

My buddy ordered the Stuffed US Turkey Roll ($19.90) which came along at the right timing as we were almost with finished our side. The turkey roll was nicely sliced into medallions and complimented with mashed potato and fresh garden vegetables of carrots and broccoli. The entire dish was nicely seasoned to our liking.

For myself, I have ordered the Grilled Piri Piri Chicken ($16.90) which was amazing! From the first mouth, it was obvious that this Portugese-styled chicken was well-marinated for hours then grilled on a really suitable temperature because it was cooked through so nicely which resulted it to be so tender and juicy! It also comes with side salad and raisin rice which were really tasty as well! A definite must order from their Christmas menu!

We were both very full but there's always room for desserts! Between the free drinks or sundaes, we opted for the free sundaes! So we got ourselves <b style="line-height: 1.6;">Hot Fudge Sundae (vanilla icecream with hot fudge & almonds) & <b style="line-height: 1.6;">Merri-Mint Sundae (mint icecream covered with hot fudge) and those ended well!

The one thing I always love about Swensen's is that we'll always be given $5 voucher for every $35 spent. This can also be given to your friends or family if you have no time to visit within the valid period so that always makes this place better than many other casual dining restaurants!

Overall, the service here was really efficient and environment was really nice for a casual date. The food at Swensen's never go wrong so I'm considering on returning soon to try other items from the Christmas menu!

This was quite a refreshing change from the usual sugar-overloaded sundaes. The ice cream was rich, smooth and creamy with a hint of buttery fragrance– a hallmark of all Swensen's ice cream. The lightly salted Gula Melaka ice cream was quite unique in flavour and had the right combination of sweet and saltiness. One of their better offerings I must say!

Sirloin Steak ($22.50++)
Sadly, the same couldn't be said for the mains. The Sirloin Steak was not at all appetising nor satisfying. It tasted more like frozen beef and was dry and tough in texture. The sides consisted of some boiled vegetables and potatoes that were relatively healthier alternatives to fries and the likes.

Once again, as with many other dessert-focused joints such as Bakerzin & TCC, indulge in the desserts and skip the mains!

Grilled Baramudi Fish ($17.90++)
The fish was not fresh and spot a lingering “fishy” taste. This “fishy” taste was further magnified due to the minimal flavouring used. Again, the side dishes consisted of some boiled vegetables and mashed potato, another low calorie dish.

Grilled Chicken with Lime Sorbet Salad ($12.50++)
This was a refreshing twist from the usual salad we’ve ordered countless times. The zesty lime sorbet, coupled with the crunchy greens was a unique blend of contrasting textures and flavours.

Swensen’s ice cream is more rich and milky compared to Andersens or Haagen Daz. We especially love their Sticky Chewy Chocolate and Butterscotch flavour!

Swensen restaurant is one of the restaurant that satisfy western meal cravings in Bukit Panjang Plaza. I ordered a Pesto Salmon which is awarded as a healthier choice. The salmon was little overcooked, leaving the meal rather dry. However, accompanied with the creamy pesto sauce, it was still platable. The mash potato was smooth, just too salty.

Went there for dinner with friends. This is the first time I went there, I feel so cozy. I ordered Chilli Crab Pasta and Hot US Fries. It was soft shell crab instead of the normal hard shell crab and it is easier to eat. The crab was fresh and the pasta was cooked just nice. To me, they were not really generous with the sauce. The sauce was taste average. As for the fries, it was not bad. They were fried to a very nice golden color. The swensen's fried are very much less salty. It comes together

I had a coupon for a complimentary single scoop ice-cream which expires by the end of this month. Seeing as the end of the month is tomorrow, I decided to utilise my coupon today. I went for the hazelnut ice cream which was quite nice, I would say one of the better flavours in Swensen. If only they had added some crushed hazelnuts with the ice cream, it would be better.Surprisingly for a holiday, the restaurant is quite empty, but that is probably because I went at 3pm which is after lunch hours

The last time I was here, was during their one for one promotions. It's quite value for money though I have heard from some diners that their portion has reduced ever since for this lunch promotion.I have tried their Honey Cajun Chicken and also their Surf and Turf. Not bad but without the one for one promotion, think I will skip and go to Jack Place or Aston instead. Their ice-cream is ok but I will rather pay a little more for Ben & Jerry.
