High Price but Hey, This is Sentosa!

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.

I would rate this restaurant a 3/10 firstly because, the food there isn't really yummy and the drinks is bland eg: Iced Lemon Tea without tea scent, Lemon grass drink without lemon grass scent. Taste Of Singapore is said to offer Singapore delicacies however, these "delicacies" isn't fit to be called delicacies. The food it offers can be found at coffee shop and the food serve at the coffee shop is better! Secondly, the restaurant is hard to locate. You actually have to take 4-5 escalators to reach the restaurant. Also, since this restaurant is located at a famous tourist attraction, I actually have high expectations for its food however, i am pretty disappointed! The service was rather alright however, the waiter forget to key in one of my orders. The ambience there is pretty quiet and peaceful. All in all, i would not recommend people to visit this restaurant.

Service - I had to stand like a child being lost, walking around the restaurant waiting to be seated. One crew was busy serving while the rest were near the counter chit-chatting. The table I chose to sit at was wet, when I looked at the waitress, she looked backed at me. Not that I'm physically attractive but she just stared at me! I had to open my mouth to request for a clean-up before settling down. Weird...

Food wise, I tried the Singapore Chilli Crab. Comes along with a baguette which tasted like it was left in the open for 8 hours. The chilli sauce was mediocre. Tasted more sourish than spicy-sweet, not to mention it was slightly watery. Crab was almost equivalent to soft shell crab, which didn't exactly looked like what was on the menu. The only thing that tasted moderately well was the Cheng Teng. If you must take something there to fill your stomache, I reckon NOTHING but Cheng Teng.

I had to stand at the payment counter for 1 minute before being served by the cashier. No eye contact at all. No thank you. Nothing.

Sentosa better do something...
