I've always wanted to try Brussels Sprout as the reviews have been good for their mussels. Till today, I crave for the beautiful mussels I had in Normandy and nothing I've eaten locally comes close. So for my best friend's birthday, we got a HUGE table with too many children and ordered like crazy! I'll shared what I know:
1) Brussel Sprouts Special - birthday girl had this and she said it's too much peppercorn thus too spicy in not that good a way. The broth was just too overpowered by the peppercorns.
2) 4 Cheese Cream Sauce - hub ordered this and he said it's ok. Not bad.
3) Ostendaise Sauce - I had this as it's really a fancy name for lobster bisque as sauce. I ordered this personally and found the sauce slightly salty but perhaps it was needed to boost the taste of the mussels. The mussels themselves were also very juicy so good job with the control of cooking time. Only gripe is that I still find the French ones sweeter and tastier. *sigh*
4) Pink Sauce Pasta (Kids Meal) - my girls had that and couldn't finish so mummy dearest happily ate the leftovers. I thought the sauce was very nice and though there was no ingredients in the pasta, it's tasty enough to eat it on its own.
They have a children's corner at the side of the restaurant but very few toys to play with. So the kids didn't find the corner engaging at all. But on weekends, they get a balloon guy to go from table to table to create something your kid desires from scratch! He is amazing just to watch! He blows the skinny balloons up by his breath alone - no pump! OMG!!! What lungs!?!
Anyway, it's a good place at night but lunch was a little too hot with the glass panels as roof, they have cloth banners that try to offer some shade but Singapore sun is not funny so late afternoons and nights are recommended. Plus the kids can go onto the paths of East Coast tracks to amuse themselves while the adults chat over food.
The kids eat for free on weekends so total cost wasn't too bad.
Spending per head: Approximately $50(Lunch)
Keep it up!
