Lobsters goodness but mad queues Smile Sep 22, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : American | Bars/Lounges | Seafood

When there's seafood and good bargain, there are bound to be queues. It's no surprise that there are often 2-3 hours waiting time as no reservations is allowed.

 
Dining at Pince & Pints is really a hassle free with only 3 choices on the menu - Live Whole Lobster, The Lobster Roll and Chilli Lobster. All lobster dishes are priced at $48. We had all 3 dishes but the live whole lobster was my fav. With a choice of Grilled or Steamed. Serving it along with Mesclun Salad, Sour Cherry & Balsamic Dressing, Shoestring Fries and Herbed Butter Sauce. We were recommended to go along with Steamed to taste the natural sweetness of the lobster meat within. Though it looks really pale on the picture but the sweetness taste of the meat really got me 'Wow'.
The only obstacle to beat is the long waiting time before having an awesome lobster feast. But I must say, it's definitely worth a try especially if you're dining for the first time. Just avoid busy hours as the waiting time can get really long.

Momiji is home to Singapore's first-ever collagen hotpot buffet, brought to you by Suki Group. With an array of over 100 items such as various shabu shabu meat, seafood, sushi, fish balls, bamboo meat paste, vegetables, pastries, desserts and more! Eat to your heart's content and beautifying at the same time - A splendid indulgence at an affordable price. The soup base is collagen pudding made by simmering kampong chicken for six hours. Patrons can customize the flavor of the soup to their liking with Himalayan pink salt, hot kimchi paste or collagen shoyu. I perfer the shoyu though. 

 
The buffet spread was huge, meat selections are mainly - Beef, Pork Belly & Pork Collar. Do note that for every two pax dining in, you will get a complimentary premium item of either Wagyu Beef or Snow Crab. Something unique from the usual buffet line up - Momiji offers raw egg, as well as Onsen Tomago which is basically half boiled egg. My favorite item among the rest of the hotpot dishes - Bamboo Meat Pastes. I'm amazed at the wide choices of different flavor - Minced Pork, Kimchi Seafood, Cuttlefish and Fish & Pork Paste. Cooked food, all sort of vegetables, sushi, desserts & more. All in all, I feel it's worth the money given lunch is starting at $19.90. And collagen is good for your skin ya smile

I had the privillage to attend a media tasting at Royal mail to indulge in some of the best cocktails and bar grub. Guests can expect an appetizing range of specialty cocktails, a well-curated range of whiskeys and spirits, as well as bar grub that boast modern British sensibilities. The best moment is spending time w your friends, colleagues and loved ones, and settle down at The Royal mail during Happy Hour.

Favorite drink was 'apple of my eye' martini and prime beef as a bite. Prime rib must try! It offers a wide variety of bites such as fries with truffle mayo, meat balls and more. This showcase the chefs’ finesse and flair in pairing food and drinks. Most of them goes perfectly well together.The Happy Hour deals changes daily with a wide selection of drinks to pick from. The Royal Mail focuses on working the taste-buds of guests and prices are easy on your wallet. This is probably my first review on a bar and never knew complementing cocktails and prime rib (Best Prime Rib in SG as suggested by @ladyironchef) goes perfectly well. I'd definitely be back.

Great food at the waterfront Smile Aug 11, 2014

The Pelican Seafood Bar & Grill serves classic east coast American cuisine with a focus on fresh seafood and wood-fired grilling. We used The Entertainer voucher for a 1-for-1 main course which we had the ribeye steak as well as unlimited Belvedere cocktails.

 
Ribeye Cap Steak ($58) - I quite like the texture of it - juicy and tender. The steak itself tasted great even without any condiments. Skate Wing Chop ($36) - with burn lemon butter. It tasted more like the angmoh style of our usual sambal stingray. Fresh and soft meat, accompanied with crispy fries. Double Atlantic Linguini & Clams ($58) - with chili flakes, garlic and white wine. Double says all which also means double the portion. $58 for double pasta may seems like a rip-off. But I'm impressed at the generous servings of clams, it's more than the pasta. Overall, it's decent but certainly satisfying.
We were attended by the manager most of the time and thank you for the great service. We dined outdoor during the National's Day Parade full dress rehearsal last week, our stunning table view was facing the exact spot for fireworks. Overall, my dining experience at The Pelican was such a joy especially spending it w great company. Special thanks to The Entertainer.

They are known for their extremely great service such as providing free medicure and free flow of snacks/drinks during your waiting time. And of course their good quality meats and broth! After hearing the epic hype about how great the food/service at Hai Di Lao is, I made a reservation on a Friday night. As usual, it was already crowded at 7 pm but we were well taken care of in terms of having a seat and getting our drinks.

Unlimited serving of fruits, desserts, pickles and 20 over different sauces. Note that this is chargeable at $4 for each person. We were not told about it but we realised after scanning through the menu. So once you take something from the sauce bar, it will automatically charged into your bill. For the broth, we had Ma La and Black Chicken w Herbs. I personally like the black chicken one while the Ma La was too oily and spicy for my liking. Note that 2 soup base is charged at $20 flat. Recommended sides are Select Beef, Black Pork and Handmade Dumplings/Noodles.

After reading, you will come to realise that dining at Hai Di Lao isn't cheap at all. For a table of 2 diners, the bill came up to almost a hundred bucks - but it is certainly satisfying.
