A rather sleepy menu too

Besides enjoying drinks at Fabrika @ Klapsons Boutique Hotel, I also decided to try the lunch at their restaurant, Sleeping Rhino. Donned in a lovely contemporary decor, this tiny bistro-style restaurant consists of a bar counter, a salad bar and some rows of seats (booths and tables). The twinkling lights above the salad bar looked elegant at first but after a while it seemed to cause headache. Service was nothing to speak of as well.

Nonetheless, *Sidney and I browsed through the limited menu and decided to go for the All-you-can-eat Salad Buffet (SGD$16.00). The ala carte menu did not leave us a lot of choices and we did not have much appetite - not like there was anything eye catching anyway. The salad counter was rather small as well, and as we circulated it in one small circle, we realized that the variety was limited too.

The usual items were some beans, greens and fruits - which were pretty average. However, the Potato Salad deserves a little praise, because the taste was quite good and the potatoes were soft enough to be enjoyable.

We decided to share a main course of Steak Sandwich (SGD$9.00 for top-up, ordered with Salad Buffet) which looked decidedly good when it was served - all golden and crispy. Well, the fries were nice and crispy anyway - with light sprinklings of fine chilli powder. 

The "steak" sandwiched between the crispy slices of bread were really just thin pieces of beef, tender and delicious, but the name "steak" seemed to be laying it a little too thick. The tiny strips of onions enhanced the flavor with tinges of spiciness, and added some sweet crisps to the chewy texture of the beef.

Go if you have money to burn

Went with a number of colleagues, one of which have AMEX card with discount. The discount is not applicable if you opt for the salad buffet set.

The fish and chip portion is huge if you order ala carte. Not too bad. Salad bar was ok, nothing fantastic though. They do not serve water here, and

Average

Was rather intrigued by the name, "The Sleeping Rhino", so decided to drop by one evening with the missus for dinner. It definitely helped that there was a 50% discount courtesy of my palate card.   Located on the ground floor of Klapsons The Boutique Hotel at Tanjong Pagar, The Sleeping Rhino

Beauty in Simplicity

In an era where many restaurants try to be "different", The Sleeping Rhino has done well in doing simple pleasures well.

Located at the corner of Klapsons Hotel, The Sleeping Rhino is an ideal pit stop for a nice quiet after work meal and makes a nice place to chill during the day.
