Full The Coastal Settlement (TCS) review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2015/04/the-coastal-settlement.htmlTucked away at the far East of Singapore in the Changi Village area, The Coastal Settlement (TCS) is a quaint cafe that has, since November 2011, been serving up tasty Western and Asian food admist lush greenery. The consistent quality of their food has greatly contributed to their popularity, and The Coastal Settlement is nearly always packed at meal times, even despite its rather 'ulu' (out of the way) location.Ambience at The Coastal Settlement is eclectic. Surrounded by lush greenery outside, while the inside is almost like a retro / vintage museum collection. All sorts of items from the past adorn the walls, from old paintings, to retro vehicles, to nostalgic gadgets. There is ample seating, and I estimate that The Coastal Settlement is able to acommodate up to 150 diners at once, with both in-house and outdoor al-fresco dining. However, I dislike the dimly lit interior, and the furniture, while sturdy, isn't comfortable and shows signs of aging.Service at The Coastal Settlement is good. Staff are assigned to specific areas, which is helpful so they don't have to run the entire length of the place. It also makes it easier for diners to attract their attention. I like that staff offer greetings, and are quite proactive, coming around to see if you're ready to order, as well as ask for feedback during your meal. However, it's also feels rather mechanical instead of special, and they're not too knowledgable on the menu, or the dishes. Plus, The Coastal Settlement tables give me a sense of slight uncleanliness, as sometimes flies / insects get into the dining area.Food at The Coastal Settlement is a mix of Western (American, British, French, Italian), Asian (Japanese, Chinese, Malay, Singaporean, Thai), and Modern Fusion influences. Dishes are generally very tasty, well cooked and executed, and served in huge portions with good plating presentation. This is probably the main reason why so many people still dine at The Coastal Settlement. Prices are slightly high though, budget about SGD $34 per person for a meal here.The Calamari With Passion Fruit Mayo (SGD $14) is a lovely fusion of curry spiced salt and pepper squid, with a light, savoury crust, and fresh squid that still has that bouncy / chewy texture. Served with a unique passionfruit mayonnaise, which actually comes on the side in a halved passionfruit! Would have been better if the kitchen scooped out the passionfruit seeds!The star of the Rosti Sausage (SGD $23) is the crisp, well fried, hand cut potato rosti. Likely the most flavourful rosti I've had in Singapore! Even better with the generous dollop of sour cream! The dish is served with a well seasoned, fresh mesclun salad, a thick, juicy chicken cheese sausage, and a rosette of savoury smoked salmon. The smoked salmon was the weakest link in this dish, being rather average in taste, but all the other items were very tasty. Highly recommended!The Black Forest In A Jar (SGD $14) is a huge serving of thick, dense, smoked chocolate chiffon cake, almost brownie-like in texture, stacked in a jar, coated with rich chocolate syrup, chocolate balls, and dehydrated peanuts. Sprinkled throughout with several sweet, juicy, maraschino cherries, which burst with flavour. Topped off with a scoop of rich French vanilla bean ice cream, smooth whipped cream, and chocolate shavings. This is a rich, filling dessert, true to the taste of a typical German schwarzwälder kirschtorte / black forest gateau / blackforest cake, but served in a semi-deconstructed manner. continue reading

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/03/the-coastal-settlement.htmlThe Coastal Settlement (TCS) has been around for a long time, yet this was my first time visiting them. Located near the chalets, and opposite the abandoned Old Changi Hospital, The Coastal Settlement set itself in the midst of greenish plantations, more like a garden concept in colonial style.Indoor seating is more of English-family style of dining, with bikes and other colonial-times ornaments to view. Outdoor seating will be more garden-like, great for those who likes to be close to the nature.Calamari ($14.00).Squid is marinated and fried with pepper and spicy salt, and side with passion fruit mayo as sauce to dip with. Freshly prepared calamari was brought to our table with the tinge-flavored deep fried squid triggering our sense of smell. Squid is perfectly fried, where it is easy to slice yet retain the chewy effect of a squid. Passion fruit mayo is a complement to the salty and peppery taste.Roast Chicken ($25.00), comes with a small bowl of potato and mushroom and seasonal vegetables. Chicken skin is glazed with orange, giving the already crispy skin another layer of excitement. Chicken is well roasted and rubbed with spices, which very much taste like the Chinese style of roast chicken rice.Rosti Sausage ($23.00) is made of potato rosti, chicken cheese sausage, sunny side up, sour cream and mesclun salad. This may not be as delicious looking as the Roast Chicken, satisfactory level is set to high too. Cheese chicken sausage does not have too much cheese in it, thus able to finish the entire sausage without complaining too cheesy.For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/03/the-coastal-settlement.html continue reading

We came here a few times for our meals. We really love the food & the ambience (nostalgic!). The Portabello fries is a must have for starter. The portabello are fried till crispy & yet so juicy inside. The dipping sauce is pretty good too, I guess truffle oil is added which makes the sauce light & flavourful.We ordered a half & half pizza (garlic prawns & wagyu beef mushrooms) as we wanted to try different flavours. One half of the pizza are the garlic prawns which are really fresh & flavourful. The other half are wagyu beef with mushrooms. The portion of wagyu & mushrooms are pretty generous. We really enjoyed the tender & sweet wagyu, it goes so well with the thin & crispy pizza crust. Both thumbs up for the pizza!We shared a half roast chicken with fries & salad as well. The chicken is roasted to perfection, very tender & juicy! My other half who hates to eat breast meat (he finds them too tough & dry) finished this roast chicken! It is best paired with the garlic sauce provided. Their salad is light & appetizing. What a hearty meal we had!They have very limited parking lots, so it is good to reach there early to secure a lot. continue reading

The place is located in ula ula far east of Singapore. Although there is valet parking at the restaurant, there is also public parking area at the back of the restaurant. The place is quite huge with both indoor and outdoor dining area and can seat about 300 people. In the outdoor area, there is swings and items that look like leftover from an amusement park. Inside the place, there is various sitting areas with different furniture. There is also various vespas that decorated the walls.As we have come at an odd timing of 5pm, where the kitchen is closed until 5.50pm for dinner, only appetizers, pizzas, desserts and drinks are available.Latte ($6++)The coffee is lacking of coffee smell and tastes average.Loose Leaf Tea ($6++)Mom has Roman Chamomile which is served in a little red pot. The tea is light and refreshing.Chocolate Mint MilkShake ($8++)It tastes quite thick and creamy.Salted Caramel MilkShake ($9++)It tastes very thick and creamy, as well as, not too sweet.Crispy Costal Wings ($14++)12 Hours Spiced Marinated Chicken Wings, Deep Fried to Golden BrownAverage chicken wings which I feel not crispy enough, but served with a tangy spicy dip.Truffle Fries ($15++)Straight Cut Fries, White Truffle Oil, Truffle MayoThe fries smells great and tastes not bad. It would be better if there is shredded cheese on top.Spam Fries ($14++)Straight Cut Luncheon Meat, Japanese MayoThis is quite disappointing as it is not crispy at all. I feel that the spam is cut too thick.Garlic Prawns Pizza ($22++)Fresh Prawns, Garlic, Tomato Sauce, Fresh Chilli, Mozzarella, CheddarThe pizza has a very thin and crispy crust, with a cracker like feel. It tastes not bad although some feel that there is too much garlic.Blackforest In A Jar ($14++)Layers of Chocolate Brownie, whipped cream, Maraschino Cherries, Dehydrated Nuts, French Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Cherry SauceIt tastes quite yummy, except I could not taste any brownie. It is more soaked sponge cake in it. The cherries are juicy. I am also cannot taste the vanilla bean in the ice cream.TCS Waffle Stacks ($14++)Freshly Pressed Waffles, Berries Compete, Nutella, Homemade Ice Cream, Chantilly CreamThe waffle tastes very good, with a kueh kueh like inside and crispy outside. TCS Lava Cake ($15++)Raspberry Coulis, Coconut Tuile, Strawberry Ice CreamNot bad with the molton chocoate flowing out of the cake.Overall the total bill comes up to $163.60, which I feel is a bit on the high side. I have a thing about the staff serving the dessert items with other food items together in one go. The ice cream in the dessert items are melting and we feel that we kind of rushing to finish them. Beware of insect bites too, as some of us receive some although we are sitting indoor in the air-con area. Remember to take a pack of old school biscuits by the door on the way out. Kind of reminding one of the younger days. continue reading

This restaurant is really relaxing as you can either choose to have your posh and expensive meal either outside the greenish fresh air outdoor environment or in the super luxuary high end design indoor environment.  Either way, will be able to delight you.This time i have decided to settle down with the Settlement Brunch with sunny-side up, which priced at $24.  The sunny-side eggs is yummy and the egg yolk is not over cooked.  Whole meal bread is soft and have the fruit jam spread on it taste refreshing and healthy.  crispy bacon is a must have for this main course as it is not too oily and super crispy, sure be able to impress you.  Not to forget the baked bean which is nutritional and easy to eat.  Service was really friendly and polite as well. continue reading
