Always a Joy in the Belly and the Heart

I've been following this humble little diner since their beginnings 8 years ago, but I haven't been in the recent months because I've been out of town. 

Last week, I had dinner there and was very heartened to find that they have stayed true to their roots, providing delicious, homely food with service that puts most restaurants and cafes to shame. 

I ordered the very original Marmite Pasta, which was an amazing fusion of Western and Eastern flavours, and my all-time favourite, off-the-menu Parmesan Fish Nibbles. The pasta was new to me but it is now something I crave for, and of course the fish nibbles are exactly the way I adore them to be through the last 5 years. 

Since I haven't been for so long, I tried out more of their new items and another gem was the Garmesan Fries. They have a really interesting assortment of fries and this one is definitely original - fries crisp on the outside and moist on the inside topped with garlic and cheese!  I look at some of the reviews here and find it tragic that people only write when they have something negative to complain about. For the 8 years that TGS has been running, they've been making so many people happy in the belly and the heart. But alas, not many have come forward to share their memorable experience.  TGS is definitely something quite precious in today's world of cookie-cutter service and menus, in the sense that they are genuine, non-discriminatory and daring enough to challenge with new ideas. You should absolutely give them a chance and see how they leave you with a wonderful experience too, then you'll understand how fortunate I feel so have discovered them.

Terrible food

I haven't had a bad meal for a long time. I think most western food stalls at coffee shops can serve better food than this place. The snack platter for sharing is simply oily fried frozen food from supermarkets. I would not recommend this place at all for the food.

No longer as good as before

We used to patronize garden slug and loved the breakfast there but recent visits have been rather upsetting. The big breakfast was a little too salty and there was only 1 measly slice of bread not enough to complement the bacon and sausages. The latte and matcha latte was too very poor without any sort of coffee aroma or matcha taste. Overall not value for money.

Had a bad experience doing lunch here with my son. The meat were all done such that half were not edible. After leaving, checked and found that the bill was double what we ordered! Overall, a place which I would not go to again, nor would I recommend to anyone.

lunch

could have spend more effort to come out with quality dishes. Beverage sucks. Ordered lychee soda and it was merely lychee syrup from can plus soda and 4 lychee- soda was too little so it was like drinking carbonated drink exposed in the open for a long time.

calamari is nice. Carbonara is cold. Cowboy burger is very oily and meat patty is overcooked. Mash potatoes r chunky potatoes (like not properly mashed) and gravy has a strong beer taste and too salty. If you want to create chunky potatoes in mash potato, please do a better job!
