Actually pretty good Smile Apr 02, 2017

The restaurant was pretty quiet when we arrived for dinner and to me, an empty restaurant means bad food or bad service or worse, both!

We had 2 starters and 2 pastas and they are all very nice actually! A most satisfying meal indeed!

We had:
Prosciutto Ham and Melon - lovely combo of salty and sweet!! The cuts of ham were generous and the melon slices were so sweet! That equates to heavenly bites every bite! Very nice!

Calamari - the batter was pretty bland but still crispy. Average nice.

Bacon Carbonara - wonderfully creamy and the savoury bits of bacon made the overall taste very enjoyable.

Seafood Linguine - am impressed with their seafood both in amount and freshness level. I am very happy with this pasta dish as the flavour is spot on and the tomato sauce is tasty.

We will definitely be back for more yummy pasta!

This is a value-for money food joint that serves fusion western makan with good taste.

We had
• Ayam Bakar - which to me is essentially fancy satay on a plate. It has the raw onions (slices), ketupat (cut into smaller pieces and satay sauce spooned over the meat. I found the sauce a tad too sweet and the chicken chunks not as tender as I would like it. Not bad but not a dish I would order again.

• Arrabiatta Prawn Pasta - I originally wanted marinara sauce with Chilli padi. The lady at the counter looked at me funny and asked, "So you want Arrabiatta sauce yah?" Heh, I trusted her and yes, it was spicy tomato sauce. I found the pasta a tad TOO al dente but the prawns were large and fresh and beautifully grilled! Very happy with the pasta overall.

• Truffle Fries - daughter insisted on having this and the serving is a large serving of hand cut fries with generous mix of truffle bits and slices to give the whole pot of fries adequate taste.

• T-Jar - their version of tiramisu. Theirs is not with sponge cake but a denser chocolate cake. The jar is a pretty substantial size and one jar was enough for my family of 3.

They have other very tempting mains that I don't have enough stomach space for which I wanna try the next time. 👍🏼👍🏼

Value-for-Money Meal Smile Dec 30, 2015

Bought a Groupon deal to enjoy the buffet. 

The deal consists of a side bar of vegetables and dips and unlimited plates of pork slices and beef slabs. 

I really liked the cucumber with their Japanese sesame dip. I enjoy creating my own dip with choice of Chilli padi, Jap sesame sauce, raw minced garlic, spring onions and sesame seeds. 

As for the meats, the beef slabs and pork slices come unseasoned. So it's up to you if you want to season before or after. I would say that the beef slices were nice and thick so if you like your beef a little raw in the middle, you can still achieve that with watched grilling. The pork slices are thin so they char very quickly so gotta watch too. 

The food items are generally quite fresh and presentation is good. The grilling pan is electricity heated so the cooking is quite clean. And the ventilation is non-Existence so you do smell like grilled meat yourself after the meal so please don't even think of going out somewhere glam after please!

It's very value-for-money with the Groupon deal and I'll bring my family the next time round.

Really decent cuts at really value-for-value prices! What's not to like?!?

The only drawback is that they run the place like IKEA. Where you have to find your own tables, no reservations, no frills, you queue up to order your food and join another queue to buy your drinks, you go get your own cutlery and then sit down and wait for yummy steaks. 

But of course there are peaks eating here too. Like the beers here are very affordable, and the food is served to you and the best peak is having restaurant quality steak at Coffeeshop prices. 

I had the NZ Striploin 250g and it's a pretty good cut too. The tendons are not so tough that you can't chew thru them so I finished the entire slab happily. My 2 sides were mash potatoes and sauté French beans. Which I must say we're pretty disappointing. The French beans at Kenny Rogers beat them hands down boy! 

I'll definitely return for the steaks but need to choose my sides more wisely. 😁

Lor Mei 👍🏼 Smile Jul 24, 2015

Jia Cheng is a shop inside the Coffeeshop that sells Lor Mee and Fried Hokkien Mee. 

And I'm pretty convinced that's enough tho there are many stalls in Singapore that sell Lor Mei, 80% of them are more like a by product of the other noodle types they are selling. 

I like their thick sauce that flavourful and coats the noodle nicely. I'm not crazy about their ngoh hiang slices, they are "ok lah". BUT!! I LOVE this deep fried bits of I-dunno-what that STAYS crunchy even having been in the sauce during your meal!!! Amazing!!!

I usually like my lor Mee with extra vinegar and extra spice! It really adds to the kick of the meal!!!

My favorite place for my Lor Mee fix in Toa Payoh!!! 👍🏼
