FOOD, Friends, Uncategorized SINGAPORE HERITAGE RESTAURANT 30 June 2008

Had our eBay/PayPal celebration party after work at The Argyle, which I can’t stand (if you’ve read earlier entries you’ll know why). Fortunately this time, I had no problems with them 😉 Despite having a loooong queue outside, we just said we had a private party with eBay and they let us straight through, though we did get some scary glares from people that were queuing outside. I arrived late ‘cos was super swamped at work (again, d’oh!) and didn’t stay long since a few of us were going out for dinner.. but was fun, especially since there was a big bar tab 😛

Us girls!

Super cute French couple

Hrmmm

We left at around 7pm to head to the Singapore Heritage Restaurant for dinner.. because I was keen for everyone to check out the place and also to see if we should have our Engagement Party there. Decked on in red, black and gold, the restaurant is a bit like an opium den.. complete with sparkling fairy lights. Call it opulent or call it cheesy, I still think it’s pretty cool 🙂 It’s unfortunately out of the City, however, which was why Chris gave it the thumbs down for our Engagement Party.

We opted for the a la carte menu since we could select more choices, and I found the food a bit hit and miss. The hits were really good, but other dishes were nice but fairly standard. I’d consider it super $$$ for a Singaporean restaurant – I think 70% of the cost goes towards the decor 😉 Service was fantastic though – very friendly and flexible.

And decorated with lots of tiny lights and candles

Completely random and blurry

Classy

Um..

*speechless*

Finally a good looking person!

Super cute!

Really not a good look on me

Eggplant Tempura with Honey Soy dipping sauce.
Sounds standard enough but it was so crisp and tender!

Orange Duck Salad with Crunchy Lotus Root dressed with Zesty Sesame Sauce
Really nice but too small a portion

Caviar and Crabmeat Congee
Sounds expensive and decadent, but all we tasted was super-strong black pepper..

Chilli Soft Shell Crap Spaghetti
OK totally not Singaporean, but I loved this dish

Heritage Beef Rice
One of my favourite dishes. It was so smoky and tasty!

Belachan Crispy Fish
I thought it was a bit too dry and the spicy belachan nearly killed me 😉

chows down on all the mad-spicy fish..
He must have no tastbuds left or something

Tempura Prawns with Mayonnaise
These had a brilliant flavour, loved it!

Mee Goreng
Hilarious that it costs $20 when it costs $3 (or less) in Singapore. Tasty though!

Yummy!

Bellies full

Getting really tired…

Banana Fritters with Honey and Ice Cream
Absolutely awesome!!

We very artfully rearranged it…..

    People whom refuse to eat their spicy fish heads are just soft….. the opposite to the over excited fried banana that obviously had no control over itself.

      That’s the red City and I think it’s an 06 or 07 colour!
