5/5 PickyRatings

This is an excellent place to eat Western food whether you’re a tourist who misses food back home or if you’re just a Singapore local who wants to take a break from all the satays and things like that.  It’s quite hard to find though.  Located right in the middle of the Gillman Barracks (which is hidden by tall buildings and large trees), you might need to perform a Google search to find this restaurant.  When we drove inside, we really didn’t think that a restaurant would be inside this former military quarters.

Here it is!

You might not think there is anything special about this place.  However, you’ll be surprised.  The restaurant has a nice, cozy environment.  It made me feel like I was home in the US again.

Wait until you start eating.  You will feel fortunate that you found this restaurant.

I started off with a lobster bisque.  It was really sweet, which was unusual (lobster bisque should be full of flavor).  That is how I like lobster bisque, but if you like lobster bisque with a lot of lobster flavor, then you shouldn’t order it.  But try it anyways!

You should definitely order the lamb rack for your main course though.  Even though it was really fatty, the meat tastes as good as the ones back in the US (and they are the best ones).  Always order it medium rare.  The tender, juicy lamb meat mixed in with the savory sauce will make your mouth want more.  Trust me.  You’ll like this lamb.

It is certainly a great new addition to Western cuisine in this small city-state.  Just don’t eat the fat when you’re there.

Disclaimer: Don’t forget folks, I am a lamb fanatic.

I hope you people enjoy my latest post (even though it’s really short).  You’ve been waiting for a post in all these months (or you maybe forgot about me).  Things have been really busy these days and I apologize for being out of the blogging world.
