Aston is my regular western restaurant if I want to have western cuisine but don't want to splurge too much. It always has a long queue but you may get seat real fast.

They offer good range of main course from beef, fish, chicken, spaghetti, lamb. The main course except spaghetti come with two side dishes which separately hot and cold.

I had tried their grilled dory fish with herb set with two side dishes. It was my favorite among all in the menu. The sauce is just well matched with the fish.

The another set I tried was teriyaki grilled chicken chop which was also good in taste.

I like their macaroni and cheese and corn and house vegetable. 

They served food very fast even the place was crowded. It's like a fast good chain restaurant.

Credit card promotion 1 for 1 OK Feb 10, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Fusion | Café | Hotel | Kids-Friendly

This hotel restaurant offered credit card promotion 1 for 1 during certain period. It's worth a try if for promotion but not worth for the usual prices.

I went for dinner on a weekday night. The food they offered are standard but not much and limited variety.. 
dessert

The dessert spread is quite good in hotel standard. Taste wise, the chocolate cake was decent and others was just passable.

Birthday celebration Smile Feb 10, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Multi-Cuisine | Restaurant

I paid my visit on my birthday eve celebration. The branch at Clarke quay offer a good open dining place with a view of Singapore river and Clarke quay night life. 

The food and dessert are standard and above average compared to other branches. I love their dessert which is creative and decent.

Despite that, the service could be improved as it was hardly to get noticed sitting at open dining place outside the restaurant.
 
Oven-roasted White Fish w/ Yuzu Sauce

Oven-roasted White Fish w/ Yuzu Sauce

 
Oven-roasted White Fish w/ Yuzu Sauce. It was oven-roasted to perfection. The white fish paired with ravishing Yuzu sauce in an elegant taste affair. The taste is perfect for the combination.
Pan-seared Chicken Breast w/ Shogayaki Sauce

Pan-seared Chicken Breast w/ Shogayaki Sauce

 
Pan-seared Chicken Breast w/ Shogayaki Sauce. Marinated chicken breast exquisitely matched with shogayaki sauce and a mild edamame cream. Served with onion-roasted potatoes, lotus root slices and broccolini. The taste is good and chicken was tender and moist.
Baked Chicken Thigh w/ Wholegrain Mustard Sauce

Baked Chicken Thigh w/ Wholegrain Mustard Sauce

 
Baked Chicken Thigh w/ Wholegrain Mustard Sauce. The chicken thigh oven-baked to a succulent tender with a sweetly fragrant wholegrain mustard sauce served with a side of garden accompaniment. The chicken is juicy and tender.
Beef Brisket Baked Rice

Beef Brisket Baked Rice

 
Beef Brisket Baked Rice. Fork-tender chunks of stewed beef brisket drenched in feisty sauce with a golden layer of melted cheese. The taste is quite good and but the beef was quite little in portion.
Apple-art Parfait

Apple-art Parfait

 
Apple-art Parfait. Curated with chic precision, this artistic trio of golden-baked apple tart, calvados parfait and caramelised apple deglazed with white wine will astound you with a seductive caramel sauce. The presentation and layout of the dessert is so creative and innovative. Despite that, the taste was just passable but not impressive. The mousse kind layer is kinda sour.
Pinana Landing

Pinana Landing

 
Pinana Landing. A surreal tableau of warm pineapple frangipane oozing vanilla custard surrounded by fresh banana and chocolate coconut tree is your sensational dream escapade. The best combination of chocolate and banana as dessert never goes wrong. The layout of dessert is so artistic and presentable with beach theme.
Puffy Triplets

Puffy Triplets

 
Puffy Triplets. Sink your sweet tooth into three profiteroles with rich chocolate ice-cream atop a fine almond-espresso financier. Spectacularly indulgent! The puff is good so as the ice cream atop.

Awesome and healthy soup OK Feb 10, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Fusion | Restaurant | Chinese Soup

This branch is different with other branch as it offer noodles and burgers. I like to visit this place as it offer more food choices. They stated the calories in each soup type for weight management conscious. 

Previously, they have different ordering counter and you might confuse on the first visit.

Currently they reconstructed their ordering system which everyone can place their order in the cashier and just seat to wait for the order. It made the way easier and convenient.

The mushroom soup was generous in ingredients as you can have many kind of mushroom in bites. The tuna salad and ham sandwich came with the super value set order. The salad was generous in ingredients too.

roaster pumpkin soup

roaster pumpkin soup

 
Roasted pumpkin soup has the lowest calories content. I love this soup the most as I love pumpkin all the way. With almond flake added in, the flavor is better with chunky bites in between.
tom yum noodle

tom yum noodle

 
The Tom yum noodle is the recommendation dish in the menu. The soup was ok and this set came only with prawn which I think the price is not worthy as this is the most expensive in the menu.
khao soi

khao soi

 
Khao soi is a famous and authentic noodle of Chiangmai Thailand. I was craving for thai food after coming back from Thailand so I order this which came with a big chicken drumstick. The taste is quite different from the one I ate in Chiangmai but it enough to satisfy my craving.
korean ramen

The korean ramen was passable.

I paid my visit to this combination theme of modern and nostalgia cafe located along river valley road on Sunday afternoon. It is a corner shop which is not conveniently accessible if you are not driving, but there is a bus stop just outside the cafe and you may reach the cafe from somerset mrt station within 20 minutes walking distance. 

As it is a small place with limited seats, it was fully packed with customers and we were told by the most friendly stuff that we can be seated after 15 minutes even there was many reservation along behind. We got our seats after 5 minutes though! Best services. 

Food and drink wise, the chocolate SGD6++ was good but a little too sweet for me as I like bitter taste more. We order egg bens SGD16++ and big brekkie SGD22++. The sautéed mushroom and home roasted potato were the best side dishes, I prefer the scrambled egg compared to poached egg. 

The prices offered was a little pricey though. Despite that, I had the best service experience which it definitely worth every dollar I spent.
