My niece and I was wondering where to eat. After walking, we spotted this empty restaurant. It was already 12.20pm. We caught the sign showing 20% off using UOB card, hence the reason we went in. It's wasn't a bad idea actually.
Service was pretty good. The staffs didn't rush your order and they do repeat their order.
1) Sauteed Mushrooms ($7)
=> It was a very small plate (expensive though) but it came out very well. The flavours were seasoned well into the mushrooms
2) Spicy seafood Pasta ($15/$16 each)
=> My order had only prawns as I didn't eat mussells. My niece had both. Anyway, the prawns were crunchy. The pasta was spicy, tasted alot of tom yam. It was good. Quite a big portion.
Other than that, we order 2 spirts ($3.20). Total after discount was around $36.
Came across this place by chance. It is tucked away from the usual crowd at Raffles Place Shopping Centre and is simply decorated. Just perfect to have a cuppa while chatting and people watching. The Autumn Passion (fruit punch drink w real fruits) is a must have. I also particularly like the soup (seafood with some clams). The food tends to be a mix between local and western with fish and chips and mee goreng! The service is good on a quiet day but I guess when it gets crowded, they might be a little understaffed. Plus, if you have a UOB card, this is a value for money place to eat at.
yes.. I was also lured by the 1-for-1 UOB credit card deals.
The waiter introduced the spicy seafood spaghetti to me and my friend. We decided to give it a try.
Walao...it's really really good. No joke. One of those dishes you will miss eating the very next day after you had it. Actually I think I'd go back tomorrow.
Season reason is lcoated @ the basement of raffles city shp ctr, jus opp aerin's. The restaurant itself is quite small n cramp thus it would be best if u leave after ur lunch(crowded).
Having read abt the ferro rocher choc cake in the previous review, i was eager to give it a try. I looked @ the menu but it was not indicated inside thus i asked the guy who served me n he showed me the way to the counter. The cakes were displayed inside... the nutty choc was the one im looking for. They also have petite 4(ny cheese, mango mousse, hazelnut n chocolate puff).
I got the nutty chocolate($5++). It was kinda worth it for a huge slice of cake. I thought it was quite dense but it was not. There were bits of hazelnuts coated at the outside, chocolate mousse n a lovely ferro rocher decorated at the top. The sponge is quite dry i think n it falls off easily,(dry). The mousse has got rum added(love it)n a layer of hazelnut praline at the base(''lao hong''). Overall i rate it 5.5/10 as the sponge is too dry.
There r also a few selection of cakes such as the choc lava n cake in a cup which they strongly recommend but i was quite hesistating to go back again.
We ordered a tapas platter (rather, its also the starters) and our own main courses. I had the beef stew with rice and it was, well, not fantastic. The meat was not exactly tender/soft, at times bit on the tough side. My girlfriends ordered a cesear salad with chicken and a spicy spaghetti. The spaghetti did not sit well with my non foodie fanatic girlfriend. The tapas were ok with my favourite being the deep fried prawn with some coating that I cant identify. The other is just a seafood tofu and the rest are just forgettable. We all had the autumn passion (highly recommended drink) each. The drink is a refreshing concoction of diced fruits and its something that is good for wind down a day with. Service a bit spotty but still ok. Seating is kinda cramped though.
