Had set lunch promotion with colleagues.

Went there with colleagues for lunch. They were having set lunch promotion so thought we could give it a try. A few tables were filled when we entered, maybe it was because we went during the late lunch hour, around 1.30 to 2pm. The ambience was pretty good, we could see the scenery of Sentosa across the waters, cables threading in the air, beautiful fluffy candy floss with true sky blue as its background. It was a nice and relaxing sight after a whole busy morning of work.

Orders were taken and waiter explained when we couldn't understand some of the items listed on the menu. It wasn't long before food came. Nice presentation at first sight. Looks and smells great. The set lunch includes salad with various nuts, soup with bread, mains.

The soup is smooth and has a unique taste which after discussing, we came to the conclusion that it's some kind of cream that they use. For the mains, my piece of grilled pork with what looks like carrots (but not carrots), tasted just right. It's so tender that when cutting, the meat makes way gracefully for the knife. It's chewy yet not "stubborn". Beside it, is a small portion of brown rice which i thought will not be enough for me. Turns out after finishing the whole set, i was simply full.

We had a nice experience and decent food over there. Although the overall which i would say is relatively nice, it's not fantastic to the point where i would dine there again if given other choices. Yeah, but it's something worth trying.

Set Lunch @White Dog Cafe

Cheap and nice 3 course lunch set from $10.90++, include a White Dog Waldorf Salad, a soup and a main course.

More photos and review at http://monsoontravel.blogspot.com/2012/03/set-lunch-white-dog-cafe.html 

White dog cafe offered a variety of choices (~18) for the main course, much more than what is usually offered in other restaurants.

White dog Waldorf Salad and Soup of your choice

You can choose Veloute of White Dory or Barley Chicken Broth. White dory cream soup sounds fishy and weird initially, but it turn out to be quite ok.



Grilled Pork Chop with Prune and Apple Salsa


Pork was nicely charred, not too tough and quite fragrant. The prune and apple salsa doesn't look appetizing but it does compliment the pork well and is not too sweet. Portion of the meat was small, but should be sufficient for the average as the mains are served with a small portion of raisin organic brown rice.

There is much room for improvement for their service. Never sight a single smile from the gloomy waitresses and it also took quite a while for them to settle the bill.

Nonetheless, will still be back again as the food is relatively cheap.

I've always liked this place and my boyfriend likes it because they have cheap beer ;)

The ambiance is always crowded, but we're always seated promptly. Seats comfortable, modern and bright lighting.

Most recently we went with some friends. I had the steak with garlic butter and brie. Super nice!! Perfectly cooked with a side of salad and a small potato. Loved it! My friend had the chicken with mango and she said it was pretty good as well. My boyfriend had a burger as he always does there. We were satisfied with everything except the fried mushrooms. Wrong batter, too oily.

The service was above average, always refilling our waters and a smile here and there. Great casual dining place, I recommend the steak and beers ;)
