I was so glad that my friend had a free voucher for swensens so we went to try it out. We could only choose spaghetti Aglio Olio and grilled chicken salad. I thought the aglio olio's a bit on the spicy side. I prefer the grilled chicken salad which was very refreshing and crunchy to bite. 

I will be back for the mint ice cream!!!!!!!!!!!

Not bad

I frequent Swensons alot and i find that my entire family can never have a meal there without ice cream! I especially love Colt Tower and the fish and chips, and when i was young my parents always ordered their cute ice cream cakes for my birthdays!

31 August 2012 Dinner



Ambience: Above average.

 

 

Food: Good. Had the BBQ chicken. Nothing exceptional. Just normal nice tasting food.

 

 

Value: Average. Pretty normal for restaurants, I think.

 

 

Service: Average. They did give me the extra tartar sauce I requested, but then again did not provide a refill of the ice water jug. So, overall just average.

 

 

Overall: Average. Think that sums up the place very well. Not bad, not good. Can go.

Horrible service like other Swensen's

The service is terrible, like other Swensen's. Once we ordered 3 Yusheng and all came without fish, despite assurances that the fish was underneath. This time we made a reservation but they lost it (or didn't take it down in the first place), and miscounted the number of iced water cups to bring.

The crumble used for Banana/Apple "Crumble" is not like any other crumble I've had. It's more like pound cake. And they dump the sliced fruit on the hot pan unceremoniously and with no artistic sense.

The ice cream is priced near Haagen Dazs and Ben & Jerry's, but the quality falls far short. Relatively speaking their food is actually better than the ice cream.

The only good thing about Swensen's is they give you jugs of iced water on your table.

Side Dishes & Drinks For Dinner @Swensens Singapore Bugis Junction Branch

Due to the recent Xmas promo at Swensen's, I arrived at its Bugis Junction outlet to try out its side dishes. Good Thing always come first: its calamari rings, that was served with tartar sauce, was fabulous. The sotong was juicy and chewy.Next,although the butterfly shrimps did not look like fried prawns and not at all appetising but surprisingly, they tasted good and crispy.
We had also ordered a malted milk shake which have been a must whenever we visit swensen's.It was a milk shake added with an ice-cream scoop of your choice and a dose of malted power. It has been my favourite drink becos it tastes thick and creamy with the chewy sticky chocolate ice-cream and it actually can serve 2 persons.

Now the bad ones.Firstly I really did not enjoy its rodeo wings cos I found them a bit too sweet for my palate.One thing to note though, these wings really looked very appetising when they arrived at the table, so do not be deceived by the look of them.
Lastly,we tried the spic 'n' chic which was actually golden fried chicken thigh strips.I thought the flour was pretty thick but on the whole,they are still acceptable.

Overall experience was great becos it was enhanced by the female supervisor who is always so helpful that I get to remember her. Her service is excellent.Moreover,on this visit, the ambience was filled with christmas festival mood and the xmas promo was value for money.
