Swensen's needs so little explanation. Having been established in Singapore for 35 years (already! ), Swensen's is synonymous with ice-cream buffets, birthday celebrations and great family bonding time. Most Singaporean 80's and 90's kids grew up with this household brand. And guess what? Swensen's is giving back to you for all your support all these years with this amazing $35 off every $70 spent promotion! In other words, spend $70 - pay $35. Spend $140 - pay $70. And so on. It's as good as 50
And guess what? Swensen's is giving back to you for all your support all these years with this amazing $35 off every $70 spent promotion! In other words, spend $70 - pay $35. Spend $140 - pay $70. And so on. It's as good as 50% off. For those who have graduated from math classes since a long time ago, here's a straightforward tip: if you're going to spend between $105-$139, go ahead and order $140 worth of food. Enjoy the promotion and keep eating. Share it with some friends and quadruple the fun! Stuffed myself silly and happy last night!
First up, I had the Seafood Scallop Pasta ($15.90++). They warned that it will be spicy tomato base, but I had no idea it's going to be burning hot!!! Oh my, kinda regretted it. Beneath the spicy exterior, I could taste that the scallop was super juicy and delicious though. The mussels were succulent too. But a pity the pasta was too spicy to be enjoyed.
Another new addition to the menu was the Crayfish Pasta ($17.90++)... my friends' popular pick of the day! The crayfish is crispy and well-salted, while the pasta was drizzled with tomato-based sauce. Everyone polished this off their plates - I guess it must be the right choice.
The usual Onion Rings and Fries from Swensen's did not disappoint with its crunchy golden brown exterior... love how comfortingly familiar Swensen's food is, even though they change their menu here and there all the time. But we noticed that all the prices of all these side dishes have gone up, surprisingly! But it's okay, there's the promotion to help tide our greedy appetites over.
We also tried the two different Sizzling Pans - The Apple Crumble and Banana ones. What a spectacle, the waiters came and drizzled the sweet sauce! I preferred the Apple Crumble to the Banana flavoured Sizzling Pan because it's much less jelat. Having said that, both are dreadfully sinful and lovely to have if only I was less full from all the food before this!
We also ordered the classic Topless 5, which was definitely a joy to have with all 5 complementary flavours - Cookies N Cream, Milo, Mocha Fudge, Rocky Road, Butterscotch! Ice-cream feast for all
