Tanjong Beach Club in Sentosa OK Dec 20, 2015

Tanjong Beach Club is one of the Bistro-cum-Bar situated at the end of Tanjong Beach in Sentosa. A stone throw away from the carpark, Tanjong Beach Club has a setting of a normal restaurant, and also a beach-bar like.
Tanjong Beach Club's menu has All-Day and also Brunch. Although brunch is only available during the weekends and public holidays, the All-Day menu is quite enticing still.
Root Beer Float ($10.00). Normal rootbeer float of IBC root beer and vanilla ice cream, yet charging at 10 bucks? Well, this cup of drink is pretty huge compared to the usual type.
USDA Angus Prime Ribeye ($55.00) with chimichurri sauce. As usual, I ordered it to be cooked rare, but the result is quite disappointing, considering the price paid. Overall is still passable but will not be in my recommendation list for the steak-lovers.
Traditional Eggs Benedict ($24.00), with two poached eggs, smoked bacon, toasted English muffin, and hollandaise sauce. When you are spoilt for choice, the most basic brunch item in the menu is always the best!
Truffle Fries ($15.00). Lacking of intense truffle taste, which is quite disappointing.
Overall, I don't think it is worth a return visit, as the food is probably just a passable rate, and the price and travelling time spent could be well-spent on another place. Not unless you are already in the area, or wanting to enjoy the beach-side atmosphere with a group of laughable friends.

Sin Lee Foods OK Oct 18, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Café

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/10/sin-lee-foods.html
If you are looking for brunch, Sin Lee Foods sadly does not serve any of such, but if you did your research, one would usually not go for the eggs benedict and such in Sin Lee Foods.
Salted Egg Sweet Potato Fries ($12.00) is a mixture of sweet potato with homemade salted duck egg sauce and curry leaves. I would have preferred a more generous serving of the salted egg, and one which the salted egg sauce would not harden that easily.
Not really a popular dish among my group, but I still suggested to have the Spam Fries ($8.00). Basically, you can imagine it as a canned luncheon meat, cut into fries-like shape, fried and added with red aioli to taste. A very normal side to have, but at least the "fries" is not airy when you bite. Every bite you took is a filling one.
The Breakfast Tortilla ($19.00) consists of pork bratwurst, spicy chorizo, creamy scrambled hen's eggs, bacon rashers, mushroom ragout, yellow corn tortillas, smashed avocado fresh greens and parmesan.
Beef & Grains ($24.00) that has 180 grams of seared marbled striploin, orzo rice, fried and runny range hen's eggs, sweet sour ginger, furikake and scallions. It can be quite sweet, thus not really recommended for those who can't really take sweet stuffs.
Soft Shell Bun ($19.00) that has breaded soft shell crab, kimchi aioli, house slaw, buttered and toasted bun, and also with double-fried russet potato fries. This dish took the longest time to arrive, and although it is better than the above two dishes, it still fares lower than what it coming up next.
Sin Lee's Fried Chicken & Waffles ($21.90). Sin Lee Foods used boneless chicken leg, topped on a fat waffle, with house slaw and maple butter. Some people would have preferred to have the waffles replaced with rice, just like eating fried chicken chop, but I take it as a unique creation.

Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro OK Oct 11, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Australian / New Zealand | Bars/Lounges | Seafood

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/10/quayside-fish-bar-bistro.html
Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro has different menu(s) presented at different times of the day. Coincidentally, we went on a weekend and brunch is available to, aside from the ala-carte menu.
The Full Monty Brekkie ($24.00), which has a pair of German pork sausage, rainbow trout, poached eggs, paprika hollandaise, toasted focaccia, roasted tomato and fresh organic mixed greens.
Overall was ok, but the poached egg style is first of a kind to me. Firm whites but oozy yolk, which I don't see it in other F& B establishments. My personal preference goes to the version did by Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro! In addition, added credit to the rainbow trout which although thin slices, the sweetness of it made me loved it already.
Tiger Beer-Battered Halibut ($26.00), a lunch item in the ala-carte menu that comes with white truffle-scented shoestring fries, wasabi-infused yuzu shoyu, and tartar.
Quayside Fish Bar & Bistro aims to serve freshly-supplied seafood on a daily basis, and I have no doubt about it. Tiger Beer-Battered Halibut is quite a satisfaction as the fish meat looks silky-soft and easily comes off like a flake. The taste is nonetheless marvellous.
There are several restaurant surrounding the marina, and prices are not cheap either. But once awhile, some pampering is still needed to award yourself for having gone through the hectic work week.

Place for cartoonised sushi OK Oct 04, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Sushi/Sashimi

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/10/appare-udon-tempura-japanese-restaurant.html
Appare Udon has shop space of 3 units, but I was surprised at the amount of tables the restaurant can accommodate. With a rough estimate, it could be less than a 100 pax or less. Its kitchen is probably already occupying almost a whole unit by itself.
If you are person who likes to admire how chef prepare your food, you may choose to take a seat at the counter, where separated by a low-rise window panel.
Appare Udon & Tempura Japanese Restaurant has limited variety in their menu. Basically there 3 main types of food you should be looking at, which are their udon, tempura, and interestingly-presented sushi.
Tonkatsu and Fried Prawn Curry Udon ($15.80 for regular portion). Thick curry base, thick and chewy udon which makes me like what I've ordered. Japanese curry is never too spicy for me, and both the pork cutlet and prawn tempura is quite meaty too.
Nabeyaki Tonkotsu Udon ($16.00). Initially the soup tasted kind of clean and bland to me, but as it keep brewing, the soup become thicker and tastier.
Bear Inari Sushi ($8.50). Cartoonised sushi. It look interesting too, where Appare Udon uses teriyaki sauce to mark the face features, barley seeds as the ears, and the milk-biscuit (reminds me of wan-wan snack) to make the nose more evident. Sushi taste quite normal though.

Hideaway Spruce OK Sep 27, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Restaurant | Steaks and Grills | Brunch

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/09/spruce.html

I haven't been to Spruce before, and I gave my first to the outlet at Phoenix Park after hearing the food at Tanglin fare better than at Upper Bukit Timah.

Spruce is a modern American casual dining concept, and is open for lunch and dinner. From the exterior seating, it may seem like you are dining in a forest theme, where tall trees are towering the top and almost covering the entire stretch of the open sides.

Gentle tip from my friend who is a regular fan of Camomile Hot Tea. Get the honey instead of sugar to blend with the camomile. It makes the tea taste better, and also promote a healthier drinking method with its antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.

Bernaised Truffle Fries ($10.00). Spruce only serve normal fries during the day, but without much persuasion and knowing that we would like to have truffle fries instead, the manager is kind to accede to our special request, which is usually only served during dinner. Bernaised sauce is like an evolution of the widely-known Hollandaise sauce, where preparation is the same. This smooth and creamy sauce taste less eggy and comes with a light touch of herb. Definitely my choice now if I am able to choose.

Soft Scrambled Eggs ($18.00). Two pieces of light-toasted bread with a portion of almost well-done scrambled eggs, topped with smoked salmon and caviar.

Crab Cake Benny ($25.00), is one of four Benedict Collection in Spruce. I really have to complement on the crab cake. Lightly-fried on the outer, and came out the shredded-like crab meat when sliced.

If you are looking for normal food, where it's not just the usual toast and eggs, Pork Bolognese ($22.00) can be one of your options of the 7 items under the Savory section of the menu.

Double Chocolate Caramel Crunch Cake ($12.00). The immerse chocolate-y taste and crunchy bits is well shared among the 3 of us, and licked clean off the plate.
