[F.T] The Royal Mail - Classic British Cuisine

The Royal Mail Restaurant & Bar is a 60-seater establishment housed within the historical and culturally-rich Ascott Raffles Place and serves modern interpretations of Classic British Cuisine where Roasts and Prime Rib take centre stage.
A vintage brass mail chute, which stands in its full glory by the lift lobby of the Ascott, is the inspiration for The Royal Mail concept which provides guests with a touch of Old World elegance from the days of letter-writing, Doris Day, Grace Chang and policemen in shorts.

Amuse-Bouche - Tender Octupus paired with Wasabi Dressing, feeling a little more Japanese here. 
My personal favourite - Pan-seared Foie Gras - $24 with Camembert cheese, wonderful combination.
 Or you could indulge in the Lightly Seared Beef Tenderloin - $20 with Various Toppings.
Another pick would be the sous vide half Maine Lobster - $24 presented in such vibrant colours, sweet!

Mains
Fresh Deboned Fish of the day - $52 for 2, I love the Garlic that came with it and the beautifully packed lemon half for you to squeeze on the fish. That fish is definitely a fresh catch!

A twist to the usual Squid Ink pasta, the Lobster Linguine with Squid Ink Foam - $28 is presented with a ball of squid ink foam which you can take a few moments to admire, and then you mix it up. Squid Ink taste not to distinctive though.

Feast on their hearty Kurobuta Pork Chop with apples - $48 if you do not prefer red meat. This huge piece of kurobuta will definitely make you wished you shared it with someone!

A 280g slab of beef is used for the Roast Prime Rib -$58, served with Yorkshire Pudding.

Intense Flavour of Sweetness from the marinade, The BBQ Beef Short Ribs - $36 tasted somehow similar to those of the Chinese Tze char Pai Gu Wang (Pork ribs), But it's better..

I got Sugar High
Banoffee Tart -$13 - Banana and Coffee Tart, did someone say banana? Enough said!
Eton Mess -$15 - Sweet Sweet meringue with strawberries, Ice cream and hazelnuts. drizzled with Carmel sauce, Oooh La La~ Give me another!
Chocolate Fondant - $18 - It basically means Chocolate Lava cake with Vanilla Ice Cream! -screams-

I enjoyed myself at The Royal Mail, The ambience is definitely delightful, I would love to visit again.



With Love, M

Maple Loft Ice Cream Buffet

Headed to Maple Loft for a Ice Cream Buffet with my sister and her boyf last weekend. They gotten the deal from Qoo10 whereas I paid full price because I wanted to tag along, #overlyattachedsister ?

Maple Loft is located in Tanjong Pagar CC (101 Cantonment Road) itself! Pretty easy to find la. 
How to get to Tanjong Pagar CC: Take MRT to EW15 Tanjong Pagar and take Exit A (5-10mins walk)
Please take a look at my poorly drawn guide.

Maple Loft Cafe
101 Cantonment Road #01-02 (Tanjong Pagar Community Club)
Tues - Fri: 12pm - 10pm (last order 9.30pm)
Sat - Sun: 9am - 10pm (last order 9.30pm)
Closed on Monday & Public Holidays
Beautiful place for a good weekend afternoon chill out over the 16 flavours of ice cream available with the buffet. Try out their waffles, it's one of the best I've had in a while. Dive in to the nostalgic corner of the shop and relive your childhood with all the snacks like monster sweets, Ring Lollipop and the ever popular card game, Old Maid. I'm definitely heading back to try out their premium flavours such as salted caramel and Mao Shan Wang which is not available for the buffet. Advised to call prior to visit to make reservations first!
