Best Mexican...hands down! Smile Jun 08, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Latin American/South American | Mexican

Wanted to give hubby a treat and it will have to be Mexican delight. So the good reviews of El Rocho's brought us here.
We started with a Nacho Supreme and it's really quite awesome. When you use fresh ingredients and crispy nachos, the results can't be poor. The minced beef is lovely with its sauce and topped with lettuce, sour cream and fresh guacamole, and other fresh bits and bobs, I was fighting my hubby till the last piece.
Hub ordered a pork Burrito and it's nice and thick! Appearance alone not enough, taste is where it counts. And taste it has! The burrito is chock full of flavour, every bite is really a delight. I honestly had to stop myself from eating it all!
I went for the Mole con Pollo which is essentially grilled chicken coated with chocolate. I know the whole savory chocolate is a bit strange but it's not. Because the chocolate used is dark chocolate and it's not sweet. It's cooked with the spices so it's just really really tasty and slightly spicy sauce. My first bite was strange tasting but as I ate on, the whole flavour just grew on me! Awesome stuff!!
The meal was SO good that I mentally needed to wash it down with another round of nacho supreme!! But my weak stomach couldn't handle too much goodness. We'll just have to bring more people to eat more! It's officially our all time favourite Mexican restaurant locally!!!

Authentic Italian Smile Jun 08, 2014

Categories : Italian | Pasta

Here to celebrate our anniversary with my favourite cuisine. Read from other reviews that the service is poor so we braced ourselves.
When we arrived, we were seated and the restaurant was only running on 20% capacity for lunch. During ordering, staff was helpful to give advice on the food items.
I was pleasantly surprised with one of the service staff who over to fasten a back cushion for me. That's awfully sweet of him to go to that extra mile for me.
Grilled Eggplant - tender slices of eggplant grilled till soft and then served with melted cheese and tomato sauce over them. Perfect starters!
Calamari - I think this dish fell short somewhat. The batter was soft by the time we ate them and though the serving size was quite generous, I found the calamari rather bland. If not for the tomato dip that accompanies the rings, it would totally tank. I won't order this again.
Ravioli Con Carne - this is our best pasta dish of the meal! Little pillows of soft beef dressed in a strong tasting cheese sauce, something like blue cheese but not. Just really yummy lah!
Before our Squid Ink pasta arrived, we were both offered bibs that they nicely secured on for us. I supposed if the black sauce splatter on you, it'll be quite a nightmare to remove. So thoughtful!!
Squid Ink Seafood Pasta - quite a big plate of pasta that is a whole plate of Nero (that's Italian for black) goodness. Seafood is fresh and generous in amount. The squid ink sauce is very flavourful and every mouth of al dente pasta a party in the mouth!
Spinach Ravioli - very good ravioli with tomato sauce. Not that this is not nice, it IS but this dish does pale in comparison to the other 2 pasta dishes.
You can opt to have a half half of the Ravioli pastas on the same plate. This is what we did so we got to taste more without being too full!!
Tiramisu - a nice generous square of cake. You can really taste the rum in it (nice!) and with the mascarpone cheese cream, a wonderful slab of heaven to finish up the meal.
I dunno why so many complained about the poor service because we have enjoyed very good service, not just from one service staff but all round really. Will definitely be back to savour the rest of the menu!

Italian at its finest Smile Jun 08, 2014   (Related Review)

Buffet treat from a good friend and knowing my weakness for Italian cuisine, she brought me here.
Where do I begin? The cold spread, cold cuts, the bread selection, cheese choices, the hot spread, the Asian spread (I know...I think maybe for those who come and realize they don't like Italian food actually), the pasta choices, the desserts,etc.
One word. AWESOMENESS! Of course there are dishes I don't like but it's just my personal taste buds. Because my friends who tried those dishes I don't like, find them nice. It's just me I guess. The overall spread is just wonderful.
Service was attentive and warm. Made our dining experience so much more wonderful.
Left bloated with Italian goodness and still craving more!! I'm so bringing hubby here!!! Not for his sake, for mine!!

So to keep my word that I would bring my hubby here, we came here for dinner.
The buffet spread as many had said, is truly spectacular! It's a brilliant showcase of the awesome cuisine of Italy and then more!
Grilled Lamb Ribs - hubby ordered this as his main and the meat was grilled perfectly, tender and juicy. There is no funny gamey taste and the sides are also well cooked.
Fresh Pasta with Bacon Chunks - I found the fresh pasta cooked al dente and the shape of the pasta is a little special, not long like spaghetti but way fatter! I didn't really like the bacon chunks though. Not my most favourite pasta experience. Should have stuck with my usual favourite and not be so adventurous. Haha..
I remain a fan of this place and have converted my hubby too!

Needed to buy something from Daiso and dunno where to go for food... We happened to park at Nando's level so in we went.
Kid's Set Meal - I must commend their efforts to have a engaging children's menu where the little ones can exercise some choice over their set meal. So my girls got busy trying to make up their own meal.
Mushroom Chicken Soup - the soup is very flavourful as it not only has the essence of mushrooms but also the extra boost of chicken soup. My girls were fighting to drink it!
Naan with Hummus - hubby likes this. I'm not a fan.
Grilled Quarter Chicken - with was well-marinated and good to be eaten without extra sauce. I had mine with Merttertainern Rice and Coleslaw. Both sides were pretty good.
We will definitely return again. smile
