I have never been able to finish my meal set
Does not matter if it's at McDonalds or Marina Bay Sands.
I can never finish a meal.
This place took the prize of being the server of the first meal I ever 3/4 completed.
I ordered the main course of carbonara because as I've said countlessly in many of my whiny entries: nobody can mess up carbonara. And true to word, it was a delightful course. I ordered smoked salmon pasta and the smoked salmon was done to perfection. I finished it and left the pasta lonely.
My friends ordered the seafood platter and while it wasn't the best we had, it was passable. The main course was still worth a second visit. So we contended with that.
There was a complimentary soup and dessert. The soup was mushroom and it was great. Thick, creamy, the way I love it.
The ice cream, ah, that was the deal breaker.
It tasted like they melted every flavour they had and refroze it in a pathetic attempt to ice creamalize it again. And it did not work bro.
We all ate a bite and it was so terrible that we started taking bets on whoever who would finish it for some cash and even then, all of us decide it's not worth it.
So I guess I ordered a soup, a main course, a seafood platter, and a bowl of play dough!
But the meal's still good. Come back for the main courses. It's GST free too so there you go, why not!
