muah otah S$6.80

muah otah was very good, very tasty.

nasi lemak S$7.80

3 of us ordered it. got chicken wings peanuts & ikan bilis, egg, otah, great sambal and fragrant lemak rice. chicken wings very good, crispy & tasty,

equal or better than selara rasa adam road nasi lemak.

nasi biryani S$10.80

nasi biryani S$10.80 

KWL ordered the biryani, must be good too.

chendol S$4.80

chendol S$4.80 

we all took the chendol. good enough i guess but still not four seasons tpy lor 8 standard. red beans no kidney beans and coconut milk and gula melaka not thick enough. rather ex at S$4.80 riding on old times sake….

S$72 for 4pax

nasi lemak S$7.80

came to like S$18pax nett, not that cheap, but then w/o the chendol it would be like S$13.

enjoyable dinner for me & my friends. i took 1/2 the rice. the ingredient items were all quite good including the otah for the nasi lemak set.

seafood fried rice ok, sambal seafood angelhair not so great, fish & chips batter good fish not so great.

sambal seafood angelhair S$21

sambal seafood angelhair S$21

sambal seafood angelhair S$21

restaurant said no more asian lobster pasta for a 6pm dinner order, or they not willing to serve that at chope discounts?? so we ordered the sambal seafood angelhair..

sambal angelhair not al dente and too sweet, tasted like a not so great chinese or nonya fried noodles. i would say the poorest dish so far and if this is the overall pasta standard, the i can do w/o the lobster too la..

CL bought flores britdhay cake 

CL bought flores cake for the 4 birthdayers.

we checked prior that there is no cakeage. 🙂

choc lava cake S$12

lava was good but chocolate quality not the best, so not the very flavourful valrona dark chocolate.

banana cake S$11

the pisang cake turned out to be the best, very big serving and easy to share.

complimentary cake

becos restaurant made a mistake in logging in 7 main courses instead of 8, we decided to order another main course in any case but w/o chope vouchers since it was past 6pm, CL complained and the restaurant offered a complimentary cake.

i offered to pay for the cake when closing the bill, but restaurant was ok to offer complimentary…good gesture…
