Drinks at the Screening Room

Having passed by The Screening Room so many times, and yet I still didn't know how interesting it could be. There's a restaurant, a pub, a movie theater all in one, featuring movies by Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and other classics such as "Casablanca". French movies are also available, so one just needs to get a drink and immerse themselves in the shows.

That night, we didn't get to watch any flicks because that area was reserved for an event, hence we went up to the roof-top bar, La Terraza. So, no "food meets film" experience for me as yet (except if you count Golden Village's Gold Class theaters).

The rooftop bar area was not big, and it was filled with merry drinkers chilling out on this cool evening - drinks, music and the tantalizing smells of hot food filled the air.

Tiny colored lights are strewn around the place, giving it a festive sheen of light, yet dimmed to a romantic and mysterious ambience.

We had beers by the breeze. Well, I seldom take beer, really, but since I was having sore throat and beer is known to be "cooling", I took it. This is a lovely place, and I wouldn't mind heading back to try its palatable-looking food as well as catch some old movies.

Lush flavours

Being one of the few restaurants in Singapore to actually serve decent Middle eastern food it's been long overdue that I write a review about Mamounia.   Located just below the bar Screening Room restaurant, Mamounia is a cozy 40 seat restaurant with elegant but simple furnishings. Somewhere perfect for a business lunch or a good dinner out with friends before venturing around the area in search of drinks. There's also a very groovy looking bedouin style lounge in the basement.
Being the 'chatam' (arabic for piggy) that I am, and faced with the prospect of so much of what is probably my favourite cuisine, I started by ordering 2 platter just for myself, mwahaha:   These platters are a great way to get an introduction to the specific cuisine, and of course are great for sharing over a glass (or 4) of wine. There are 3 platters on the menu, with one of them (The Fertile Crescent) being entirely vegetarian.

Dissapointment with Service staff @ La Terraza

I would like to air my complaints about the very poor service that I received at La Terraza two nights ago. I was unhappy with the staff’s attitude (the female waitress with the tattoo on her arm) and also the quality of drinks.Firstly, the staff portrayed a large amount of incompetence and a bad attitude towards customers. No one attended to me for about ten minutes, and when the waitress finally showed up, she showed a severe lack of interest and she was very very rude. She had to take my order three times, but even so, she still brought me the wrong drink and blamed me for not telling her what I really wanted. All I wanted was a Mojito.Secondly, the service was very slow. It took nearly half an hour for my drink to be fully prepared, as the bartender was busy juggling bottles. What made matters worse was that after waiting for so long, the waitress brought the wrong drink and she had to take it back.Thirdly, the cocktail itself was of very poor quality. It was quite diluted and tasteless. I felt I was just drinking a glass of lime juice. I hope that you will look into this matter and train your staff properly to have the appropriate behavior.

dinner at Mamounia - disappointing

Two of us had dinner at Mamounia - $95 for one starter, two main courses, one beer, one soft drink. That's right - $95, and all we had was chicken (no luxury ingredients like lobster or wagyu beef or foie gras). The food was mostly good, but portions are very small. Chicken shawarma is tiny - a starter-sized dish priced at $30 as a main course. Service was good as there were very few people in that evening; we can understand why. Prices bear no relation to the quality or portion size. So, a thumb's down. The management really needs to give this place a re-think.

Greek Platter ($18)
25 Jun 2011 • 68 reviews • 9 followers

Dining and film experiences under one roof

Previously known as the two-starred Damenlou Hotel (大門樓旅店) until 2007, the 5-storeyed historical building on Ann Siang Hill was taken over the following year and transformed into a film and foodie haven, offering dining, wine, and theatrical experiences all under one roof.

I have been recommending this place to friends without having been there. At last, I got my chance early this month.

Can't decide what to order? Their platters are good to start with.

Feeling adventurous, we chose the less common Greek Platter ($18) that comprised selected bites with alien-sounding names.

Tastebud was particular impressed with the kakavia greek fisherman stew that came in a cup. Intense in flavours and complex in taste, it warmed the heart in a unique way that left me lost for words for the next couple of minutes.

For main I had Danish hake fish ($28), enveloped in a potato crust fried to crispy brown, garnished with trout roe and citrus fruit salsa.

It was decided which dessert we wanted, to end this grand dinner.

Mahalabia ($14) it was called, the yogurt crème was livened up by the pomegranate and peppermint bits. Refreshing bites of crushed peppermint provided a clean balance to the tangy yogurt.

If it's too early to call it a night, proceed on to its star attraction, Time Out's best rooftop bar in 2008. Take comfort from the casual yet stylish settings of rooftop bar as you take a sip of dessert wine and soak in the lovely view.
