Restaurant Week: Trattoria Lafiandra

Restaurant week - March 2012. 

Restaurant gave us complimentary bruschetta :)

At $35++, this was one of the more value-for-money restaurant week meals around. 

Beef Carpaccio 

Really great beef tagliata

home-made Ravioli 

kick-ass somewhat intoxicating tiramisu

Tanjong Beach Club

Tanjong Beach Club (or TBC) is warm, bright and cheery. 
Perfect for a restaurant on the beach to be honest. I really like the shades of blue, the stripes and the happy smiles all around. Singaporeans are a minority here but that shouldnt stop you from having brunch here. 

Had the eggs ben with bacon, which was decently done but nothing fantastic.
I would recommend the pancakes or the big breakfast (it comes with avocado and that is always a win in my books). 

I believe theres a min spending for booking of the poolside day beds. If you do chill there, do order the truffle fries and crab dip.

Seoul Yummy

One of the good things about working near Clark Quay is the many many great lunch deals around the area. Seoul Yummy offers lunch sets from $9.99, this spicy chicken soup with 6(!) side dishes was a great deal. Although I think the BBQ place a few doors down probably offers better tasting soup.

Coastal Settlement


Old school to the max, my mum was gushing about all her "childhood relics" on display. 
Coastal Settlement is one of those places that illustrates how Singaporeans will go to great lengths to eat good food. Located in a mother-ulu part of changi village, do drive or cab there.

I appreciate the ode to our past and it was a fun place to eat at

Couldnt resist ordering the truffle fries, the truffle flavor was disappointingly absent though. 

The salad came in a cute cannister for tossing but so tiny portion wise.

Thankfully, the rest of the other dishes were pretty good.

The bangers and mash featuring some delightfully creamy mash

Thick chunky fries and a huge juicy burger that hits the spot

Always a good dish for sharing. Thin crispy pizzas.

The must-order dish would have to be the portobello fries, esp if your a fan of mushrooms. Umami-ness  of the thick portobello together with tangy mayo is just delicious.
