Swensen's has developed over the years to become a restaurant chain offering not only ice cream, but fun and friendly casual-dining with a wide selection of hearty food, desserts, beverages, ice cream cakes and takeaway novelties.
Many people cringe when they think of “healthy food”. I know I did, because the typical image that comes to mind is a celery and spinach-chomping person with no joy in eating. Being healthy is not about drastic measures of abstinence from junk food or eating mountains of salad. Keyword is in being informed, and taking everything in moderation. Swensens served good healthy food. I enjoy their grilled fish set. If you do not like fish. You can try their grilled chicken breast set. If you are up to it, you can try some of their sides. They have good salads
I have always liked Swensons, particularly the sengkang branch. Food used to be served promptly and I enjoyed their services. But, for past three weeks, I have tried to go for lunches and dinner on weekdays/weekends, and its almost always crowded and the queue is quite long - understandable as the food is not bad. The disappointing part was that, the waiter/waitresses never inform even when the tables get cleared. And when I went to ask for a table for two, and pointed at a free table with two chairs, they still asked me to wait and never got back. Quite sad, as this has happened 4 times now.
The restaurant has a warm ambience with slightly dimmed lights. The chairs are comfy and the staff is very friendly when serving you. I tried the Baked Spaghetti Bolognese with meatballs that cost $15.90 and was served piping hot in under 10 mins. The kind waitress reminded me that it was hot before i tucked into the warm, gooey red-sauce spaghetti that was covered with a layer of baked, slightly browned cheese. The dish was topped with 3 delicious meatballs that were juicy and tender. For dessert, I ordered a bannana split that was really yummy with the 3 ice cream flavours I had chosen: Butterscotch, Mango and Strawberry that was sandwiched between 2 banana halfs. The desser was topped with strawberries, nuts, whipped cream, maraschino cherries, chocolate sauce, hot fudge and strawberry sauce. Overall, it was a great dining experience and suitable for anyone looking for great food and who has a sweet tooth! The prices are resonable, the staff is courteous and the setting is comfortable. Perfect for a family ranging from young to old.
