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.

We were there for lunch, but apparently there isn't a crowd in the weekend, perhaps due to the sunny weather, and most of the shops are still not open for business. So this helped us to decide on Just The Place soon enough, and with the visible guide of the only crowd in there.
Just The Place is more like a pub for drinkers to mingle and even have a decent European meal. Their menu consists of starters, pizzas, pastas, finger food, seafood and meat. They also have brunch section in the menu, but have to note that it is only available during the weekends.
Just The Place's Iced Lemon Tea ($3.50/glass). Not something an average kid will accept, because of the substantial bitter taste.
Just Platter ($19.90), consists of truffle fries, cajun mid wings, crispy prawn twisties, and sweet potato croquettes. Other than the mild-taste of truffle in the truffle fries, overall is quite well-paid for. If you are a seafood-y person, Just The Place also serves Seafood Platter ($22.90).
Pan-fried Herbed Boneless Chicken with Mushroom Sauce ($18.90). I had expected to have a small piece of chicken, with just a simple gesture of dripping the herbal taste of mushroom sauce on it. But what came was a delightful plate of herbed-taste chicken! Without the mushroom sauce the chicken meat is already good enough for me eat without sharing at all.
Prawn Aglio Olio ($18.90). I am a rice-type of person, so I'm not sure of the pastas here is that good, or just average. I love the tough yet tasty aglio olio, not like those coffee shop noodles we had.
It has a great view, overlooking the sea where opposite lies our close neighbour. The most convenient way of getting there is still by car or a bus. Of course, other than eating, it has also a park and is one of the popular place for a family gathering.

Aperia Mall was never in my own map of Singapore, till I chanced upon a Chinese restaurant that is situated right here.
I often passed by the area and seeing Tim Ho Wan, a Chinese Dim Sum Restaurant, but neither have pay a visit to this branch nor have I checked out what is the exact location called. In my mind, it’s just the dim sum restaurant at Kallang.
Anyway I was there to try out the Chinese Restaurant, known as Dragon Bowl (龍碗). It doesn't seem like a typical Chinese restaurant, as it infuses a bit of modern interior designs and furnishings.
Total of 13 types of food selections, excluding recommendations, beverages and set menus, it has basically what you see in most Chinese restaurants. Waiting time is not too long, roughly 10-15 minutes and the food will gradually line up on your table.
Trio Combination ($18.00). Under the Roast Meat Delight section, this combination consists of char siew, roast chicken, and jellyfish. Both meat is tender and aren’t any complains to pinpoint, although I would prefer the jellyfish to be replaced with roast duck or other roast meat.
Stewed Spinach with Trio Egg Soup ($10.80), under Vegetable Delight. Trio eggs consist of chicken egg, salted egg, and century egg. The mixture of all 3 eggs and with spinach, poured with flavourful stock is a perfect combination to go with the rice.
Stir-Fried Spare Rib with Sichuan Spicy Sauce & Minced Garlic ($14.80), under the Pork section. Each pieces are meaty and meat aren’t too dry. I would expect this dish to be spicy, but it turned out to be ok only. The generosity of the minced garlic sprinkled on the spare ribs and fried with the dried chilli leaves a significant taste of chilli oil with each bite of the rib.
Braised Beancurd ($10.80), under Beancurd Delight. A simple combo of flat beans, squarish beancurd, and pork belly soaked in thick braised gravy. This is always my another perfect dish to go with a bowl of plain rice. But the version of Dragon Bowl comes a little inferior in comparison of my expectation. What comes disappointing to me is the exceptionally poor in flavourful gravy.
Fried Rice with Shrimp & Diced Vegetable ($10.80), under Staple Food. While Dragon Bowl supply big fatty shrimps for their fried rice, the rice is too dry and bland to be even considered an average pass.
Sea Bass steamed in HK style ($33.00), under the Live Seafood. Fish came as a humble whole, and crew will assist to slice it apart for ease of consuming. Fish meat is firm yet soft, and is not an undernutrition fish either.
Mango Sago with Pomelo ($5.00).
Mango Pudding ($5.00).
Herbal Jelly ($5.00).

The first interesting fact that caught our attention is the entrance. Shattered glass door and even trying to tempt you to break the glass door if you are in need of food. So now, can you imagine how many people have come to The Udder Pancake in verge of hunger? Just saying if this is real...
The Udder Pancake has a lot of other interesting decorations inside, and how amazing it is for the team to have come up with such ideas.
Of course, if you are craving for ice creams, it is readily available next door, which mentioned earlier is inter-connected. Ice creams can also be brought over to The Udder Pancake unit for consumption too.
Mango Kaffir Lime Leaves is sweet and thick, and partially due to a mango-lover I am, I find it a refreshing drink. For the Strong Iced Lemon Tea, it comes with a small serving of melted sugar for preferential adding to the drink. Elderflower Gummy Bears is one drink that I had my doubts for. It was only someone in our group ordered this and comment its quite good, did I proceed to counter to order a second drink for myself. Yes, the gummy bears are hard but still chew-able as they are soaked in the drink. The fizzy soda water is also the reason I had my second drink drank to empty.
The Udder Wings ($7.90) is made up of petite mind-joint chicken wings, deep fried, and served with sweet & sour Thai chilli sauce. I wouldn't say it's amazingly delicious, but just passable.
The Udder Shrooms ($12.90) made of crunchy deep-fried bacon-wrapped white button mushrooms, served with bacon chipotle mayo. We didn't really quite enjoy this side dish, and I would gladly opt for the The Udder Wings if I had to choose between them.
Another dish that I will try not to miss out, is the Salted Egg Yolk Fries ($9.90). Thick-cut fries topped with salted egg yolk sauce, curry leaves, chilli flakes and toasted butter sugar cereal.
It tasted like something like cereal prawns, but with the salted egg yolk sauce that managed to pull me back from thinking I'm at a tze-char stall.
Pulled Pork Fries ($12.90) is shoestring fries topped with bourbon barbecue pulled pork collar with warm melted cheddar cheese, lime sour cream, sliced shallots, Jalapeno and chives.
All The Udder Pancake's mains comprises of 4 pieces of pancake and other ingredients, depending on your order. The pancakes are mini-sized, probably 3/4 or 1/2 of the usual MacDonald Hotcakes.
Salmon, Crab & Caviar Egg Benedict ($16.90 for half, $24.90 for full) consists of poached egg with citrus hollandaise, smoked salmon, crab claw meat and ebiko slaw on grilled cheddar cheese pancakes. Also topped with lumpfish caviar and fresh dill.
The cheese pancakes are quite special, tickling my taste bud which opens up my appetite. Honestly speaking, it doesn't look very appetizing because of the soggy and mushy fillings topped by the poached egg, but I didn't hesitate to finish the entire portion after my first mouth.
Honey-Glazed Herbed Chicken ($14.90) has the boneless chicken marinated with paprika and rosemary, being honey glazed and flame grilled. Just the look of the boneless chicken, I can still imagine how juicy and delectable it was.

Sin Lee Foods OK Oct 18, 2015

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.
