Also you can choose between different meat-based dishes, such as chicken in a tequila-flavoured sauce. But brave visitors await a special challenge. Legend has it that the rooms of Singapore’s East Coast Road are the lair of a monstrous taco, filled with all sorts of ingredients.
We really had a good time. Staff got our orders correct but they could've been a little more attentive. Eg. The staff was topping up water for the next table and when done, should've looked around to check if any other patrons needed a top up. We had to call him as he was about to just return to the kitchen as we also needed the top up. Food was very good. Especially the Nacho starters. As it was our first time, we didn't know the portion size. Had starters and each ordered a main. The portions were very generous. It'll be great if the staff can just advise patrons of the portion size, which was good for a guy but a bit too much for some ladies. As it was my wife's birthday, I brought 2 bottles of special reds, however the corkage was a touch stiff. $30 per bottle. I don't mind paying corkage as the wines was a St Hugo reserved. But $30 is a bit stiff, especially we were a table of 11 and other drinks were ordered. That aside, they were very nice allowing us to bring our own cake. On the whole, I'd recommend this place and will certainly return.
