Food Review: The Coastal Settlement

The Place Rustic & Colonial vibe with that ‘chill-lax’ feeling – that’s Coastal Settlement. Tucked in the north eastern corner of Singapore, this brunch place can be found off the road from the infamous red beret’s Hendon Camp at Changi. P1000810

The one-storey colonial building was transformed into a time capsule with old Vespa scooters shelved up as display items, together with chairs, old clocks, broken tiles and anything else old and broken either hanged, placed or hooked on the walls and walkways of TCS. Large windows surrounded with greens, greens and more greens, make TCS a very comfortable place on a weekend to wind down after the hectic weekdays.

The Food If you have been to CMPB at Dempsey, you might have tried some of the items on the menu. If not, TCS do serve some rather nice brunchy food options, coupled with a mixed of western and local items on the menu too. One interesting starters you might want to try is the Portobello Fries ($15). Created like a french-fries-styled side, this is obviously done with really fresh and juicy portobello mushrooms instead of potato. For tRP’s love of mushrooms, this was heavenly. Nuff said.

P1000801

Being a brunch place, diners can expect the typical eggs benedict and any thing else with egg and toast. tRP’s recommendation would be to go for the ultimate Truffle Egg and Mushroom ($19). While not presented in the most appetizing way, this main ticked all the boxes of a great brunch (Mushrooms, Truffle Eggs, Bacon & Toast). P.S. Don’t leave the fruit jam aside, it matched with the toast perfectly.

P1000803

Wagyu Beef & Mushroom Pizza ($23). If you like wagyu beef, mushroom and thin crispy pizza crust, make sure you try this. Tasting totally alike it’s sister restaurant (CPMB served the exact same pizza), this pizza could make you coming back for more!

P1000806

What’s best to complete a relaxing weekend visit to TCS, other than having a sinful sweet drink – Strawberry and Horlicks Milkshake ($6 each). Nothing too wow about both, but it was as good as you can expect it to be.

P1000805

Rants The service was not tip-top, especially with quite a huge crowd the restaurant has to handle. Expect some small boo-boos, but nothing too upsetting if you are taking things slow on a weekend.

Will I return again? Yes, although with plenty of brunch options in Singapore, my next visit may not be soon.

  1. My bf introduced me to this place. I fell in love with the atmosphere instantly the moment I stepped into the place – the relics of the past, the retro music and nostalgic feeling~ it was overwhelming!! A great place to chill out and good dating place too! We get to surf our iPads and enjoyed our stay there very much!
