Trying to reach that Big O

Good food, great service, awesome pastries!

That just about surmises my visit to the Big O outlet at Paragon. The service staff was prompt and always had a ready smile for us. Together with a friend, I ordered Bbq Baby Ribs and Bacon Wrap with Chicken Thigh.

The ribs were tender and well glazed with a sweet, tangy sauce. Not quite what I am used to in Chilies, but tasty all the same. The Bacon Wrap with Chicken Thigh was all the more flavourful with rolls of bacon wrapped around pieces of grilled chicken thigh.

But what really blew me away was the dessert though. For people who like chocolate and durian, I recommend 'Spike D' TOTALLY. It's a innocuous looking cake with a smooth creamy chocolate coat hiding a sponge interior that's nicely tinged with a yummy durian flavour. Nice. 'G Spot' was a fudge chocolate cake served warm, not as out of the world, but still great for chocoholics looking for a buzz.

Beef Stew is horrible and its their popular dish

my daughter and I had a meal at the restaurant yesterday's late afternoon around 4pm (15July)) , and we ordered a Cod fish and a beef stew. The beef stew is terrible, Thank goodness the cod fish and the desserts are okay and of course, we just took 2 pieces of the beef only and return the rest to the kitchen. The beef is dry and can tell the cook just poured the sauce over the beef cube thus, inside the beef is dry and clear, its not juicy nor soaked with sauce, beef stew is supposed to be stewed and when you bite it, it should be juicy in and out and not just covered with sauce on the outside. We made a comment to one of the waiters who served us, and insisted that their cook stewed the beef together with the sauce, if that's the case, how do you explained why the beef is dried on the inside and with no sauce stew in it, just like you cooked the beef plain with no seasoning nor sauce. the waiter responded back to us that we are the only person who complain on their beef stew, is either the people who are served does not aware how is beef stew is to be or we are just plain unlucky that we went at the late afternoon where there's no more beef left in the stew so what the cook did is just took some beef cubes and pour the sauce over.

We definitely will not be going back, the quality of the so-called beef stew and the staff poor attitude is really a turn-off.

Terrible Beef Stew which is the popular dish

Spike 'D' must try fior the Durian Lovers

Came over for some high tea as we bought a voucher along cine & decided to pop by for a try. Spike D was really awesome, don't be fooled by the plain dome shpaed exterior, inside the dome hides the goodness of durian which taste like D24!

Really really bad experience at paragon Big O

The waiter's attitude literally spoils my day. Extremely rude and ridiculously bad customer service. This kind of black sheep ruin the reputation of Singapore's service line. 

If not for the manager, I believe I wouldnt have stayed for dinner. 

The one and only good thing about the restaurant is that they don't play mainstream music.

Used to be better...

I was at the Big O (Wheelock Place) some years back and the food was good. I remember it fondly. Recently, I visited the Paragon branch, and I cant say that I wasnt disappointed. It reminded me of Cafe Cartel. Good for students, not so much for working professionals. It was OK. Essentially you get what you pay for.
