I had been to this restaurant not once but twice over! And I highly recommend it to all! Whether it's for dates or for birthday celebration!
I first went there after buying Groupon vouchers in mid-May. I bought 2 vouchers and spent $20 for $60 worth of food. So I tried alot of food just to make up to that amount of money.
First, my bf and I had a starters of Wings Combi as recommended. It had 3 types of wings (Spicy Girls, Auntie Ang's secret recipe and Sweet Revenge). Cos my bf and I don't really take spicy food, we requested for spicy girls to be removed, giving us more of the other 2 types of wings. And boy!! IT WAS AWESOME! When I sank my teeth into the meat, I was overwhelmed! It tasted really good! The marinate was unique and different! Sweet Revenge was more of BBQ and Auntie Ang's was more of fried chicken wings. But both are good! After everything, I heard that spicy girls was really spicy. I'm glad I didn't take it! This starters is definitely a must-try! It cost $12.90.
Next, for main course, my bf had the sherpherd pie that was on May special that month. It changes every month and I haven't seen it again. But once again, the food surprised us cos it was very well-done! Different yet pleasant! The sauce for the minced beef was unique!
As for myself, I had the Beer-battered Fish & Chips ($15.90). It was alright to me. A little oily but the pieces of fish were huge. But the taste of the beer isn't too strong. Can't really tell. But the salad served with it had a unique sauce on top! Nice touch!
For drinks, the menu is really cute! They had special mix drinks ($5-$6) named "This one", "That one", "Anything", "Whatever"...among the common cocktails, beer, soft drinks and juices. So we shared one cup of "Bumble Bee".
For desserts, we tried their recommended Dirty Mars and it was awesome!! It's mars bars with ice cream, just like the famous Mars Bars at Raffles Place but only bigger and better! It was warm, cold and sweet all at the same time! Yums! The sauce is raspberry sauce! So it's like there's chocolate, vanilla and raspberry sauce! $7.90.
And prior to all this, while waiting for the food to arrive, we were chillax-ing with the monopoly deal game cards that are available there. There are many other games like cluedo. So we were pretty much entertained, coupled with the nice contemporary songs playing in the background.
The place was quiet and nice. Not too many people at dinner time. The crowds usually come in for drinks as it's a famous place to hangout for drinks too. So I had the privacy I wanted. The artifacts around are nice. The lightings are unique and soft. Making everything soft and pleasant.
The service is really good! They serve with a smile and are very patient with you. And even for guests like me who use vouchers, they didn't despise us as some restaurants do. It was such a pleasant experience that it left a deep impression on me. It's rare to find restaurants with such good service now. And what's more, they don't charge GST or Service Charge. Quite surprised about it!
Well, this restaurant is so good that I went back there to celebrate my bf's birthday with a group of friends and took up their birthday package (which is so economically viable)! It's in the post above! Read on!
