Here's my list of three choices that you can take if you're looking for food when you're in Sentosa:-
1. Just pick a restaurant and don't complain about the cost because you're at a tourist attraction,
2. Visit the less pricey joints such as Subway, or
3. Tahan a little and then drop by Vivo City where there's a wider, and more reasonably priced variety of food.
Well, I chose to eat at this restaurant. Above and beyond that, I was in that location and the restaurant happened to call out to me. To be frank, my family had just wanted some local fare.
Nothing earth shattering in terms of the decor, and the service was fine. We picked up the menu and thumbed through the prices. "Ok, since we're here, we might as well make it worth our while", I enthused.
My wifey wanted Chicken Rice (S$10.20), and my helper and daughter had their daily special - Seafood Horfun (S$7.50) - most value-for-money meal. I was drawn in by the picture in the menu, Nonya Lobster Laksa (S$16.80).
The food was not too bad, and I really did enjoy the laksa. It not only came with lobster, but there was also two tasty mussels. The gravy was also not oily (I'm very particular with having too much oil).
The restaurant, however, does not serve complimentary water, and I just thought it would be crazy of me to pay S$4.50 for a glass of 7-Up! That to me, is extortion.
