Welcome to The King Louis! Singapore's only castle-themed restaurant serving medieval cuisine. Get ready to be served and feast like a king or queen as we are being transport back to the Medieval times.

 
Hidden in a corner at Level 3 of Vivocity (beside Daiso), many would not have noticed this restaurant in the mall. It's never too late to find this hidden gem suitable for family or friends gathering. We were warmly greeted by the friendly staff standing outside the restaurant.

 

 
Simply love how the restaurant has many different table setting to choose from. Majority are long tables and benches made from specially crafted wood. These's also the more formal type of table setting with office chairs and black tables. Very cool to hold a small group meeting here.

 

 

 
The armored knights as well as the interior decor keeps me very fascinated and I just can't stop snapping photos. They also added extra effect like the spider webs, skulls and the black paper ghosts for the Halloween festive feel.

 
The King Louis Halloween Feast that I've won. Thank you, OpenRice! It says 2-3 pax so I made an impromptu reservation for 2 pax, thinking that bf and I should be able to finish all. I was so wrong!

 
The bf with the big jar of ice-lemon tea! This is enough for 4 pax!

 
Highlandar Pumpkin Soup. The soup is thick and creamy and comes with the garlic bread. I love the combination but the portion is too big that I can't finish the soup and when it's cold, it doesn't taste that good.

 
The King Louis Platter consisting of fried sausages, fried wedges, fried onion rings and a small portion of salad. Perfect starter but later we regretted choosing this over the Chicken Ceasar Salad because the main platter was so huge that we really can't finish it and have to call more friends to join us.

 
The Queen Isabelle Platter. Our first reaction was shock with jaws dropped when we saw this huge portion! Consisting of Roasted beef with Black Pepper Sauce, Premium BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Roasted English-style Queen Pullet, Lamb Steak with Rosemary Herbs, roast potatoes, assorted vegetables like long beans, cauliflower and carrot and salad. Fruits are on skewers.

 
As I don't take beef and lamb, I can only enjoy this portion of the platter. My favourite is the BBQ Baby Back Ribs. The meat is well marinated and is really tender. Best part, the meat fell off the bone easily.

Roasted English-Style Queen Pullet was a decent dish. Read other reviews and found out that the restaurant uses chilled instead of frozen chicken so that's a plus point. However, the breast meat was a bit dry, so I only ate the thighs which are juicy and tender.

 
The meat for the Lamb Steak with Rosemary Herbs is really tender and juicy as quoted by my bf. The The medium rare finishes for the Roasted Beef with Black Pepper Sauce is just perfect.

 
Dessert was Coconut Ice Cream. We thought it would be just the usual vanilla ice-cream but it's not. Quite a unique choice of flavour. It's not too sweet and ends the whole meal well.

 
Our choice of table comes with a scenic view of the Harbour. At one point, we even witness fireworks coming from Sentosa.

 
Friends who came down to help us finish the dish. Thanks!! Even Halloween they've put in so much effort in the decoration, I guess Christmas they would have special menu too! Looking forward to that! smile

Thanks for the ice-cream treat too! ^^

Cozy cafe for gatherings Smile Jan 31, 2014

Love the concept of the lawn with two benches by the side leading us to the two outdoor sitting tables. Loose change donated to the Sir Antonio Cat Food Fund (aka tip box) are used to buy pet foods for some of the stray cats living around the cafe.

Upon entering the cafe, one can find lots of drawings of the cafe's mascot - Sir Antonio on the wall.

The tiny light bulbs wrapping around the ladder creates the effect of millions of tiny stars in the ceiling. Love it.

Dessert on the eve of CNY Smile Feb 24, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Ice Cream and Gelato

 

 

 

 

 
Met up with my friends for reunion dinner on the eve of Chinese New Year, it was about 10.30pm and a lot of shops were already closed. Luckily, we found this shop selling Italy Gelato ice-cream still open and there's seats for us too. So we made this our dessert for the night. They have some rather interesting flavors like Moscato and baileys. The Moscato and baileys are very mild so even kids can have it. Unlimited toppings are allowed but if you put too much, the ice-cream will be too sweet. So don't be greedy, take just the right amount. Enjoy.

Mid-Week dinner at Owl Cafe Smile Jan 27, 2013

OWL coffee is a household brand name and ever since they've opened a cafe called OWL Cafe at Star Vista, the curiosity in me tells me that I've got to try it. My friend who've eaten there also highly recommend this cafe. So, we arranged to have our dinner there on this mid-week Wednesday.

The OWL Cafe is a cozy place to hang out and their food are inspired by the culturally rich Straits Asian region. The cafe has got alfresco and air-conditioned seating to choose from. The moment we stood at the door, the attentive staff were already there to help us press open the automated door.

We ordered Curry Chicken with bread and kaya butter toast for sharing and I had a cup of teh. The teh (milk tea) has a strong and fragrant aroma. Tea lovers would love it. The curry chicken gravy is thick and rich with coconut milk and the meat is tender, it doesn't stick to the bones. Dip with the plain toast is another way to eat them. I also love their kaya butter toast and it's our sweet dessert. Will definitely bring my parents to try this cafe soon.

Midnight Hunger Savior  Smile Dec 17, 2012

Cheers to Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe for extending their operating hours to 4am in the morning. Best thing is it's not open at West Coast Plaza, a 5 minutes drive away from home. Now, neither do I have to torture my stomach by staying hungry nor do I have to took the trouble to cook instant noodle.

Big thanks to Churp Churp for letting me win the $20 voucher. It comes in handy even though the condition is I have to use it after 12 am. It was just enough to cover my portion of the meal. When my bf and I arrived there like 1am+, we were rather surprised that the whole restaurant are still quite filled with people. It still has the lively atmosphere. The staff greeted us warmly too. We got a big round table sofa seats and I felt very comfortable there.
$8.80 Lunchean Meat Bee Hoon with Papaya Soup

$8.80 Lunchean Meat Bee Hoon with Papaya Soup

 
I had their Luncheon Meat Bee Hoon with papaya soup and this is one dish that left me craving for more. I will definitely keep going back to Xin Wang Hong Kong Cafe just for this dish. The Luncheon Meat are served on a separate plate so that it remains crispy and won't be soggy from the soup. Inside the bee hoon, chunks of papaya, sweet corns and egg were added to make it more flavourful. The soup itself really has the taste of papaya.
$5.50 Shrimp Dumpling Soup

$5.50 Shrimp Dumpling Soup

 
I shared the Shrimp Dumpling Soup with bf and this is another dish that I will recommend to friends. The shrimp is fresh and the soup is so tasty I finished the whole bowl of soup. I'm so glad I found a venue to cure my midnight hunger.
