A hidden gem settled near to the eastern border of our island, The Coastal Settlement is a recently established casual dining restaurant that is motivated to offer savoury Western and Asian dishes in her one-of-its-kind village home-like environment, infused with a contemporary touch. Surrounded by greenery and situated relatively close to the sea, The Coastal Settlement encourages her customers to be dressed comfortably so as to expect nothing more than a casual dining experience.

Melody explained to us how a few unique aspects of the former army barrack-warehouse’s architecture were retained and she divulged one of the venue’s hidden secrets to me as well. In line with one of the co-owners’ passion for antiques and old knick- knacks, the interior of The Coastal Settlement is furnished with an extensive variety of collectors’ treasures and vintage items that contributes to the restaurant’s vision of reliving the old days and for the customers to be immersed in a nostalgic experience. A vastly spacious single-storey eatery that can accommodate a capacity of 200- odd patrons, The Coastal Settlement is definitely an ideal dining location for any large gatherings. There are also a few private corners for any couples or small groups who seek for a more intimate affair.

The lightly crisped shoestring fries were gently lifted by just the right amount of white truffle oil that caused them to taste finger-licking good. Matched by a small dip of tangy home-made ketchup that concocted of freshly-diced tomato bits, the Truffle Fries were definitely a simple yet satisfying starter that is indeed worthy of one’s order.

The Char-grilled Wagyu Beef and Mushroom Pizza was introduced as one of the restaurant’s best-sellers, one that would usually be spotted at almost every table during dinner time. The milder White Wine Reduction tempered the strong flavours of the Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheese so that one would still be able to taste the smoky savour of the gratifyingly chewy Char-grilled Wagyu Beef and the delightful mix of Sauteed Mushrooms and Caramelized Onions. In addition, I thought that the use of the appropriately large cracker-like crust had actually brought about a whole new excitement to the different layers of texture in this pizza.

An Asian classic that is well-known to be tough to leave a significant enough impression; The Coastal Settlement’s Nasi Lemak was a hearty assembly of rice that was well-perfumed with the aroma of coconuts/ pandan, a pair of juicy Fried Chicken drumstick and wing that were not too greasy, two superbly succulent Tiger Prawns, served with a middling Sunny Side Up Egg and lastly, perfectly accompanied by crispy scrumptious Ikan Bilis and not too spicy (more of sweet) Sambal Chilli. Although the culinary team could have been more generous with the portions of Coconut Rice and Sambal Chilli, I had still found it to be quite a distinctive rendition of Nasi Lemak that would definitely beat the ones offered at some other franchise outlet or chain restaurant elsewhere.

One of their Festival Specials, the superbly tender and fragrant Kurobuta Pork Cheeks were served wonderfully warm on a bed of silky Mashed Potato that spelled delicious comfort at its best. The gastronomical pleasure of the show-stopping chunks of mouthwatering meat was further elevated by the inclusion of braised red wine. A lip-smackingly yummy dish that was the meal’s winner for me

The only disappointing number from The Coastal Settlement, the Sea Salt Caramel Cheese Cake was just too salty for one’s taste buds. The sweet elements were largely overwhelmed, so much so that I could hardly derive any toothsome pleasure from the dessert. However, I do believe that it was just not the right day to have their Sea Salt Caramel Cheese Cake (since it couldn’t possibly go that wrong).

Quite an artful creation that might possibly cause the fairer s** to stare at the plate for a long while before bringing themselves to dig in, the fragrant and slightly crisped Waffles was brilliantly accompanied by a pleasurable assortment of fresh strawberries, banana, maple syrup, whipped cream and a sizeable scoop of dark chocolate ice cream topped with a crunchy nutty wafer biscuit.

Treating us with unfailing hospitality, the service team was warm, patient and courteous. It was easy to engage in a conversation with a few of them and some took the initiative to drop by our table to question if we were satisfied with out food. Our request for an additional serving of their home-made Tomato Sauce (for our Truffle Fries) were acceded to almost immediately. Knowing that we were sharing our main dishes, additional plates and utensils were brought to our table, even without us asking. This was also carried out before we started on our desserts.

I must admit that The Coastal Settlement is indeed quite inaccessible, especially to those who might be more reliant on public transport. However, I do strongly believe that The Coastal Settlement is more than worthy of one’s visit- for anyone who favours a remarkable dining ambience, excellent service and a hearty fare of well-executed dishes. Definitely one of the best options for anyone who requires a decent venue for a large gathering in the East, The Coastal Settlement is also an ideal choice for families and friends to enjoy a meal together throughout the week.

Sunday Brunch Test

Very popular place for Sunday brunch. Efficient valet directed me to a parking spot for the Fat Boy. Free parking on location is a big plus! I bypassed the 20 people deep queue waiting for AC seating and headed straight to the shady breezy courtyard. Flying solo today so easy to be seated; waiter was busy but prompt and courteous, ordered eggs benny and a dbl macchiatto, they don't have sparkling water (-1). He advised me the food will take awhile coz it's busy....indicates a shortage of kitchen staff or efficiency...floor staff seem adequate in number and service skills. Just 7 mins to receive my coffee and soda water. Coffee is decent....sweet and aromatic. Soda is soda. The courtyard is pet friendly...a few well behaved pooches about and a couple of old carriage swings for the kids...gives the parents a chance to soak up the ambience. The waiter brings out mosquito coils....and my food arrives just 15 mins wait...so fast that the next table complains that they waited an hour and I was served first. oops! The eggs benny was really good. 30 mins from being seated and greeted to being well fed and ready to roll. That's an emphatic pass of the Sunday brunch test by the Coastal Settlement team.

Full The Coastal Settlement (TCS) review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2015/04/the-coastal-settlement.html


Tucked away at the far East of Singapore in the Changi Village area, The Coastal Settlement (TCS) is a quaint cafe that has, since November 2011, been serving up tasty Western and Asian food admist lush greenery. The consistent quality of their food has greatly contributed to their popularity, and The Coastal Settlement is nearly always packed at meal times, even despite its rather 'ulu' (out of the way) location.

Ambience at The Coastal Settlement is eclectic. Surrounded by lush greenery outside, while the inside is almost like a retro / vintage museum collection. All sorts of items from the past adorn the walls, from old paintings, to retro vehicles, to nostalgic gadgets. There is ample seating, and I estimate that The Coastal Settlement is able to acommodate up to 150 diners at once, with both in-house and outdoor al-fresco dining. However, I dislike the dimly lit interior, and the furniture, while sturdy, isn't comfortable and shows signs of aging.

Service at The Coastal Settlement is good. Staff are assigned to specific areas, which is helpful so they don't have to run the entire length of the place. It also makes it easier for diners to attract their attention. I like that staff offer greetings, and are quite proactive, coming around to see if you're ready to order, as well as ask for feedback during your meal. However, it's also feels rather mechanical instead of special, and they're not too knowledgable on the menu, or the dishes. Plus, The Coastal Settlement tables give me a sense of slight uncleanliness, as sometimes flies / insects get into the dining area.

Food at The Coastal Settlement is a mix of Western, Asian, and Modern Fusion influences. Dishes are generally very tasty, well cooked and executed, and served in huge portions with good plating presentation. This is probably the main reason why so many people still dine at The Coastal Settlement. Prices are slightly high though, budget about SGD $34 per person for a meal here.

The Calamari With Passion Fruit Mayo (SGD $14) is a lovely fusion of curry spiced salt and pepper squid, with a light, savoury crust, and fresh squid that still has that bouncy / chewy texture. Served with a unique passionfruit mayonnaise, which actually comes on the side in a halved passionfruit! Would have been better if the kitchen scooped out the passionfruit seeds!

The star of the Rosti Sausage (SGD $23) is the crisp, well fried, hand cut potato rosti. Likely the most flavourful rosti I've had in Singapore! Even better with the generous dollop of sour cream! The dish is served with a well seasoned, fresh mesclun salad, a thick, juicy chicken cheese sausage, and a rosette of savoury smoked salmon. The smoked salmon was the weakest link in this dish, being rather average in taste, but all the other items were very tasty. Highly recommended!

For more details, please visit http://www.foodesteem.com/2015/03/the-coastal-settlement.html The Coastal Settlement (TCS) has been around for a long time, yet this was my first time visiting them. Located near the chalets, and opposite the abandoned Old Changi Hospital, The Coastal Settlement set itself in the midst of greenish plantations, more like a garden concept in colonial style. Indoor seating is more of English-family style of dining, with bikes and other colonial-times ornaments to view. Outdoor seating will be more garden-like, great for those who likes to be close to the nature. Calamari ($14.00).Squid is marinated and fried with pepper and spicy salt, and side with passion fruit mayo as sauce to dip with. Freshly prepared calamari was brought to our table with the tinge-flavored deep fried squid triggering our sense of smell. Squid is perfectly fried, where it is easy to slice yet retain the chewy effect of a squid. Passion fruit mayo is a complement to the salty and peppery taste. Roast Chicken ($25.00), comes with a small bowl of potato and mushroom and seasonal vegetables. Chicken skin is glazed with orange, giving the already crispy skin another layer of excitement. Chicken is well roasted and rubbed with spices, which very much taste like the Chinese style of roast chicken rice. Rosti Sausage ($23.00) is made of potato rosti, chicken cheese sausage, sunny side up, sour cream and mesclun salad. This may not be as delicious looking as the Roast Chicken, satisfactory level is set to high too. Cheese chicken sausage does not have too much cheese in it, thus able to finish the entire sausage without complaining too cheesy.
