The Place It is my duty to rant that it can be very difficult to think of a nice brunch place to chill out on weekends sometimes and sadly most restaurants in Singapore often grossly over-price their brunch menu. Thankfully, Table Manners comes across as a restaurant which aims to serve food at affordable prices for all.
I like how spacious the whole restaurant is, from the lovely alfresco corners in a pavilion to the comfortable indoor seats.|
The bonus is that it was not very crowded on a weekend afternoon, which adds to the dining pleasure. Table Manners aims to promote communal dining, as is evident from its long table arrangements and name.
The Food There are set menus to choose from as well as à la carte options. I will recommend having the set menu as it is realy value for money. The set B I had allowed me to select 1 meat and 2 vegetables from the menu, and it is only $13.50. Some of the vegetable items include the sauteed mushrooms, asparagus and truffle fries, while the meaty options inlcude the likes of the New Zealand Angus beef, grilled chicken and pork.
For starters, I tried the mushroom soup ($4) which is probably one of the best I have ever tried. The tinge of olive oil adds much flavour to the homemade mushroom soup which is thick enough for my liking.
For mains, we had the New Zealand Angus beef, sauteed mushrooms and asparagus. The beef is done medium rare and its texture is tender enough for my palate, which all the more makes it worth every cent.
The other mains we had is only different by the choice of the truffle fries instead, which may not be the best ones around but certainly satisfying enough as well.
For desserts, I had the affogato ($8) which is served like a cocktail. I like the taste of the coffee as it does not give me a low grade feeling. On the contrary, the aroma is strong and the taste is flavourful as well. The vanilla ice-cream taste good as well and certainly not from some ready-made ice-cream tubs.
Rants There are no rants from me for such a lovely and chill-lax place like Table Manners. If I have to rant about something, can I just rant about the slightly out of the way location in the East of Singapore?
Will I return again? For a value for money dining experience, it is worthwhile to be back again and learn some table manners, such as having meaningful conversations with your dining partners instead of playing with your iPhone incessantly while eating. Bad table manners.
