Thank you for excellent service and also the Fresh Orange Juice
Winter Potato Salad with Ham and Chestnuts
( Christmas Gourmet Menu - $5.90 )
The sweetness of the Honey Mustard sauce makes out the salad more appetizing.The ham was simple, if you just eat the ham without having the sauce, it kinda a bit plain. I can't deny that the chestnut is scrummy, not because i like to eat chestnut. But i found that the best of its salad was the chestnut.
Santa's Baked Seafood Parcel
( Christmas Gourmet Menu - $5.90 )
I was quite surprised when saw the parcel paper. As usually most the food that i have is either wrapped with aluminium coil or fata oil. It contains with Salmon, Prawn, Squid, Mussel and vegetable - broccoli, cauliflower,and carrot which served based on tomato sauce. The sauce was quite watery and didn't match with the Salmon. Quite plain to eat with salmon tough it was fresh but there was no satisfied of having pleasant scent. In my personal opinion,Salmon is served better Lemon Butter sauce of Teriyaki sauce .
Selection of classic buffalo drumlets, pork sausage, tempura squid tentacles and potato noodle prawn roll. At price of $18.90 - it offers varieties of sides that each side comes with 3 pieces. The potato noodle prawn roll makes me think of the Noodle Story potato wrapped prawn which also having the same dish. It is a good appetizer platter for sharing.
US Crisp Cut Fries ( $3.90 )
Isn't it a Waffle Fries ? The fries was crispy but i would suggest don't leave it too long, otherwise it will become cold and a bit soft. You can opt with Cheese by topping up $1.00
For Sharing : Why Shaw Plaza is the only exclusive outlet that have Pizza ?
because it the only outlet that have wood stone oven for making the pizza
After preparing the pizza, the staff will put the pizza into the exclusive oven to bake. Open Concept Kitchen While taking a picture of the kitchen, i found something unique for their decoration
It displays the Barilla Pasta information and also the sauce.
Does Collin use a Barilla Italian Pasta for their pasta dishes ?
Handmade 12-Inch Thin Crust Pizza
No doubt that all the pizza is thin crust because it is a hand-crust !
The preparing time is about 12 - 15 minutes
Frutti Di Mare
Frutti Di Mare is a popular multi seafood dish of Italy, literally means "Fruits of the Sea". Although some of the outer crust is over baked, but the crust is 100% crispy for sure ($16.80).
Served with shrimp, squid, mussel, crabmeat & pesto. The pizza id good enough and there is a sense of juicy frutti. It is my favourite dishes for the pizza. It would be better if they can improve to make the pizza lesser tangle. We were having a difficulty when cutting the pizza. Collin's Special
Served with Ham, sausage, bacon, onion, capsicum, olive, mushroom, and salami ($16.80). This pizza is not tangle and crispiness are still there though the crust is over - baked. The most attracting of this pizza is the obvious big circle bacon. I personally prefer the Frutti Di Mare pizza instead this though it is called as Collin's Special.
Signature Duck Confit
At the price of $13,50, i think the price is reasonable against the food quality. No ducky smell and Perfect with shallot balsamico sauce. The whole duck leg is tender at inside and crispy at outside. It comes with mushroom ragout, salad, crushed potatoes which same as mashed potato.
Baked Caramel Banana with Vanilla Ice Cream & Seasonal Fruit
Don't be confused with Below 2 picture. Both are the same Baked Caramel Banana and
Vanilla Ice Cream. ($6.90) . The difference is only the design and fruits. Since i don't like banana, so i didn't touch on the banana. It looks interesting with half whole stretch black things which seems like a Chocolate, nonetheless it is dark banana skin after baked.
The vanilla ice cream is fragrant and good that it is not melted easily.
Orange Souffle with Vanilla Ice Cream & Seasonal Fruits
The Orange souffle is sinfully delicious and soft . It was just come out from the baked oven. When i popped down the Orange Souffle, i feel the bubble air keep against the spoon when i scoop it which makes this dessert nice and unique. ($7.90)
