Western-size experience

Despite having visited Greenwich several times, I have never dined at Empire State. With the closure of BBQ Chicken, Empire State is becomes the only restaurant at Greenwich selling western fare.
 Empire State reminds me very much of the now defunct New York New York eatery.
 Food portion sizes here are HUGE! American-size.
 The crowd was mild for a weekday lunch hour. Service was alright and pretty quick.
 Taste-wise, the food was great! Well, till I was so full from the portion-sizes... even the finger food serving was, large. At least in my opinion.

Casual Western Fare

I never knew a mall at Sengkang could be so happening with lots of dining options, and in my first visit, I must say that I left pleasantly surprised.

With a mission to tap on the rising young couples around the area, Empire State offers tasty casual fare such as aglio olio, fried chicken, baked chicken and pumpkin soup. A lot of taste though comes from the generous amounts of oil used.

Service was rather efficient, typical of a casual dining environment with no frills.

Food in Greenwich V

For details, please visit http://foodesteem.blogspot.sg/2013/11/empire-state.html The monkey mascot, representing the Statue of Liberty, Empire State focus on another set of values! Cheeky monkey :P Their mains range from pastas to burgers and to westerns only. Of course, includes starters, sides, drinks, and desserts. Seafood Ring ($6.90) is seafood ring fried to golden color, and served with caesar dressing and cocktail sauce. Love the seafood rings, as they were fried till crispy, and chewy. Herb Roasted Maple Glazed Chicken - half ($11.90) - whole ($16.90). Chicken was prepared with maple sauce beforehand, and covered with brown sauce to add taste to it. I love their roasted chicken too, as sauce is sweet with some peppery taste and goes well with the meat. Meat is tender and juicy, while the fries are not over-fried, leaving the inside still mushy! Baked Salmon ($16.90) where fillet is baked and served with flavorful seafood sauce, mesclun salad and amshed potato. Salmon is overcooked, making the fillet a little hard. But sauce is sweet and creamy, which I love to dip with fries, mesclun salad, mashed potato, and seafood rings. Their serving portion is not stingy at all, and with the price stated, it is definitely worth it, and probably even cheaper than it should be! While the condominium is still in development behind the mall, do pay them a visit before it gets too crowded even on a weekday evening!!

very good experience.

This is my first time dining at Empire State. Food is good, service is excellent, price is of the usual market rate. :) went at lunch time, not much of a crowd, guess due to its location. But then it's good ambience for me and my family. The waiter keyed in my order wrongly, and I was offered an order not of my preference. They took back with no black face and served me a complimentary mushroom soup (very yummy!!) while I wait for my baked salmon. They are very prompt in taking order, and billing and consistently came over to ask if we needed ice water. One of the waitresses saw us struggling to finish our food and my boy's kids meal was quite untouched, she initiated to help us pack so then we could home. That was really sweet. Really a pleasant experience there. I guess we would frequent there!

Huge Serving Sizes

Full Empire State (Cafe) review here

I had a good experience dining at the former Empire State (Cafe) outlet at Iluma, and this new outlet carries the torch well.

Ambience is still styled after American road side diners, with large comfortable seats, and quirkey decor.

Service is friendly and attentive, and food is served quickly.

Food portions are as large as ever, and still taste pretty good.

I had a craving for Root Beer Float, and the Empire State (Cafe) version didn't disappoint... Large mug of root beer, topped with a generous helping of quality vanilla ice cream... Extremely satisfying!

The Empire State Hot Dog comes with generous toppings of cheese, chili sauce, mustard, chili beef sauce, and onions. The sausage was quite long, at 12 inches (!), but is factory made, which resulted in a lower overall taste. The 10 inch bun would have been better if it was toasted slightly.
