Homely and warm hospitality

You can count on friendly greeting and recommendations the moment you step into this restaurant serving comfort food in a relaxing, casual ambience devoid of pretences. In fact, the entire place screams "homely-ness" with a very authentic American touch.

It took some time for me to choose what to eat. On top of that, their menus contained lengthy, wordy descriptions and no pictures, therefore I had to use my imagination when reading the fine prints. It would be good for them to have a less-wordy menu with some photographs for reference.

We started the meal with the Gumbo (soup) consisting of sausage slices, chicken and lots of black pepper. I have heard of it but never tried it, so when I saw this restaurant serving it, I knew I had to have it. The first spoonful was a piping hot, rich, thick mouthful of spicy goodness - yes, the peppery taste was redolent. The few grains of tiny white rice mixed in added a touch of texture to the delicious soup dish.

For mains, we had burgers. The Beau had the Big Bern's Burger with Cheese - thankful that it was not a humongous American serving. This is a rather thick burger consisting of a minced-meat patty, lettuce, tomato slices, onion strips and thick layer of melted cheese atop, served between burger bread of course. The first few bites were delicious, especially the heavily-flavored beef patty clasped with crispy vegetables. However, the patty was very salty, I had to consume lots of water and munch on bread / vegetables to neutralize the taste.

Happen to chance upon this restaurant when I was running errands nearby. There is only 2 - 3 table occupied when I went there for lunch around 12PM.

I was seated at a corner next to their kitchen. The menu is interesting with the history but lengthy in words, you can take your time to read if you have the time.

I ordered a 1/2 portion Fish & Chip Set Lunch and it only cost me $8.60(with Svc Charge). The restaurant does offer 1/2 portion set meal for small eater. It comes with soup and drinks, and they are quite generous with their serving.

I have to mention their service staff. Their service staff is real good. They will give you suggestion and always with a smile on their face, i like their working attitude. Definitely will visit again!!!

Critics' Reviews
Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

What to Eat
Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
