Spent a day at Garden by The Bay and feeling super hungry, we decided to settle for dinner at Verandah. The ambiance here is ideal for group gathering...with long benches. And seems like the place here is exceptionally packed on a weekend. We waited quite a while for them to clear the table before we sat down.Menu with many choices...so difficult to choose as there's Singapore selection as well.Iced Tea to quench our thirst.$19.80 -Daily Roasted Rosemary Chicken ~ chicken is not well marinated a
The ambiance here is ideal for group gathering...with long benches. And seems like the place here is exceptionally packed on a weekend.
We waited quite a while for them to clear the table before we sat down. Menu with many choices...so difficult to choose as there's Singapore selection as well. Iced Tea to quench our thirst. $19.80 -Daily Roasted Rosemary Chicken ~ chicken is not well marinated and the rosemary taste is quite like. It tasted more like normal roast chciekn and it is abit dry, luckily there was enough sauce served with it. $11.60 - Homemade Waffle with Ice-cream ~ Warm and crispy on the outside, moist, fluffy and mild vanilla taste inside. Great!
But it's strange of the waiter to serve us our dessert before our main course. Shouldn't it be after the meal as having dessert before main course will curb one's appetite? ***Faint*** $14.60 - Bacon Wok Hei Aglio~ the restaurant ran out of linguine hence this aglio was served with penne instead. Not too bad!
Fries with Brown Sauce~ Crispy n Salty! Yummy! $13.60 - Prawn Paste Wings~ The overall taste is too mild, maybe it's adjusted to suit tourists taste. The side dish achar is on a spicier side. $14.60 - Chicken Alfredo~ Rich and creamy sauce blend in well with the penne. As asparagus was added to the dish, it sort lighted the overall taste making it easier for 1 to finish the whole plate. Seems like all their pasta portion are quite generous! $9.50 - Fried Hokkien Prawn Noodles~ Super yummy! 1 of the best restaurant serve hokkien mee. The yellow noodle is not soggy while the rice vermicelli has soaked in abit of the seasoning. the noodle is slightly wet with freshness of the meat and seafood. Best of all, there is crispy lard bits! $11.60 - Panda Box ~ kids bento for my friend's daughter! Comprises of cheesy sausages and mashed potato, fruits and pudding
Had a good dining experience despite having some hiccups on the procedure of food being serve. most important is on the service, food, environment and the great companions. Prices are quite reasonable for the location, especially near a tourist attraction. Thumb's up!
