Located in the food court area of Big Box is I am Legend. Since land is considerably cheaper in far sides of Singapore like Jurong East, you will find ample space in this huge food court. I am Legend has a corner all to itself and it's easily accessible from the escalator landing.

The cook himself took the time to explain the inspirations for each dish, from which you could tell he was extremely passionate about. I am Legend serves up Halal Western Fusion food that prides themselves with the freshest ingredients.

First up was the salted egg yolk with prawn pasta. The chef explained that salted eggs were premiumly sourced rather than from neighbouring south-east asian locations. The use pure salted egg rather than artificial flavouring. The salted egg yolk sauce for me was a bit too thick, I would've preferred it to be thinner, so that I could spread it more evenly throughout all the pasta noodles. They were extremely generous with the crunchy prawns but it still fails to justify the $15.90 pricing, considering this is a food court.

The seafood aglio olio was the greatest disappointment as it was way too spicy and it had leftover residue of either oil, or something that looked like water. I couldn't taste anything other than pure pepper in this dish. The noodles were al dente but everything else on the plate wasn't up to standard.

Salvation for I am Legend started to arrive with the grilled garoupa. Drizzled with the legendary sauce which was sweet and slightly spicy. This reminded me of some type of Peranakan cuisine. I liked the presentation of the Garoupa and the fish meat was soft and tender. You could tell I am Legend was indeed serious when they elaborated the freshness of ingredients used.

You have a choice of fish when it comes to Fish & Chips at I am Legend. The fish tasted okay, nothing fantastic and same goes for the chips. I just wished that they made some fusion twists for this extremely common dish.

5. Lamb Chop *must try*

I liked the lamb chops here. Though it may look a bit over cooked, the meat still tasted tender and juicy. The onion rings were huge and though this dish is typically served with french fries, you can request for onion rings instead.

Upon your first bite into the onion ring, you will immediately know that these onion rings were made from scratch! The batter isnt' over powering and the onion ring is a legit full ring of onion! The sauce for the lamb chop tasted like a mild black pepper sauce and it brought out the charreed flavour of the lamb chop. Good job guys! This is a winner!

The truffle fries had a very strong and fragrant truffle oil smell that literally took over the entire food court. No Kidding! The portion of fries were decent for sharing. But again, nothing to shout about.

Overall: Decent halal western food with some fusion twists. If you're shopping in Big Box, do give them a go, especially the lamb chop or grilled garoupa, skip the other western food choices that you can find elsewhere. Also give a shout out to the chef and friendly staff of I am Legend!
