The restaurant was located at the first floor of Bay Hotel Singapore, which was just across the street from VivoCity Shopping mall. There was both outdoor alfresco dining, and indoor air-con dining area. When we stepped in the restaurant, it looked another hotel restaurant with buffet counter in the centre. The place was surrounded with cozy booth seating at the sides.Starting from 3 June 2016, the restaurant is offering a new all-day dining menu called Great Singapore Savour. Free Fresh Coconut
Cordon Bleu inspired deep-fried chicken breast with chef’s homemade salted yolk paste.
An east meet west dish. A great idea. It looked great being golden brown with crispy crust. But when sliced opened, the salted yolk paste failed to flow out smoothly. The chicken tasted slightly more on the dry side. I wish that it could be more moist with a more in depth savoury filling. Cereal Prawns with Wasabi Dressing ($9.90)
Deep-fried crispy prawns spiced with cereal and served with wasabi dip.
It was a typical zi char dish. The wasabi dip was more like a normal mayonnaise dip with wasabi taste barely there. Shrimp and Eggplant Sambal ($8.90)
Local eggplant with fresh shrimp stir-fried with spicy sambal.
It was the smallest serving out of all the dishes served tonight, yet it was the first dish to wipe clean by everyone. One even half decided on getting a second serving. The sambal was the thing which gave this dish the kick. It was spicy, sweet and savoury at the same time. Even with just plain rice, it was great. X.O. Scallop & Prawns Fried Rice ($9.90)
X.O. fried rice with prawns and scallops wrapped in egg skin.
It was served as fried rice in omelette parcel, similar to Nasi goreng pattaya which was commonly found in malay hawker stalls. It tasted quite flavourful. Claypot Assam Fish Head ($18.90)
Fish head simmered in assam gravy
Interestingly the gravy was not the usual spicy and sour type. Instead it tasted slightly sweet and light, without much spiciness. The fish head was meaty and moist. Fresh Coconut Malibu ($8.90)
Fresh young coconut fruit with parisienne of mixed fruits, topped with coconut ice cream and accompanied by fresh coconut juice.
It was interesting to have the fresh coconut served with its flesh untouched and shaped like a cup. The ice cream was rich and creamy, balanced nicely with the fresh juicy tropical fruits such as dragonfruit.
Overall the food was delicious and reasonable priced. Although located so near to the busy Vivocity Shopping mall, the place was not crowd and offered a relaxing feel.
