Basil Alcove is located at Fortune Centre and serves Western Food.
Had the rack of lamb. Absolutely MELTS in your mouth. Overall food is great, except the mussels were a little cold, so the melted cheese on top wasn't melted anymore. Not the best area beside the road, but that did not bother us since we sat inside and was there pretty late, so less cars on the road.
Tiny location, but we will definitely be back.
Situated at fortune center ,behind the famous "Goddess Of Mercy" Buddhist temple is this humble , Singaporean owned diner/cafe . Chef Xander Ang whips up wholesome Itallian Cusine which sometimes are infused with local flavours.Must try are his "Basillico Duck", "Tenderlion beef" , "Ceaser Salad", "Rack of Lamb". Ask the service staffs to check with him for any "Daily Specials" , who knows you might get specials like "Baked Mussels with Cheese" or "Seafood Chowder" which are subject to availability. Wash your meal down with beer ranging from Heineken, Leffe Blonde,Duvel etc etc... For wine lovers, he does carry your merlot,pinots,chardonnays. Cheers all and bon appetite~ Support our local home grown Chef~
I was told it serves anglehair so I made a trip purposely there to try that. To my disappointment, they don't serve anglehair anymore. But never mind, I decided to try their homemade grilled chiken fettucine.
To be honest, I didn't like the environment of the place. The interior looks old and the chair I was sitting on is like going to fall off. However, I don't want to make my judgement just on that. So i waited for the food to be served.
Chiken taste ok, but to my great disappointment, the pasta is hard cos it's not cooked. In fact, it's too oily for my likely. Though the price is alot lower than the pasta at other restaurant, that doesn't mean I would compromise on the quality & taste of the food. Towards the end of the meal, we actually gave our feedback to the owner.
Well, to add on, I went elsewhere for mee siam and I was happier...
Last night, we ordered 2 rib-eye steaks, 2 duck breasts and a lamb rack. We were deeply disappointed that the food were so lousy especially the rib-eye steak (medium done) which was so tough and can’t be chew at all. We highlighted to the waitress but she just walk away. I went to the counter to inform the guy who took our order, and was told that they can’t do anything at all. What kind of service is this?
FOOD – NO QUALITY
SERVICE - POOR
