Lunch @ Tanjong Beach Club, Singapore

Food review, and one of my most treasured secret recipes, just for you :)...

J's RECIPE FOR A RELAXING DAY:

1) One serving of Black forest mojito (SGD 17++):
(Can be replaced with other flavoured mojito/ cocktail of your choice)
This can be considered as a healthy fruit drink ah?...

+
2) One beautiful beach:
Man made beach, but still very nice...

+
3) Several portions of Eye Candy:
Beautiful bodies line the beach...

+
4) MORE Eye Candy, just in case:
Hotties (well, some of them were anyway) lounging in and around the pool...

=
Happiness!
:D


Haha...
Hope you enjoyed this "recipe" that I shared with you.....
(It's one of my most favourite, treasured ones...)

This time, I found ample "ingredients" at the Tanjong Beach Club on Sentosa Island, Singapore, during my recent trip to go for ZoukOut 2010.

- You can sit by the open area:
Feels like an island resort!...

- Or sit by the covered bar area:
Lots of people chilling out on that Saturday afternoon....

While we sat there, enjoying the sunshine, we nibbled on the adorable little TBC sliders (SGD 16++):
6 cute lil' burgers...

While they were small in size, they lacked nothing in juicy yumminess, with its fluffy buns (not starchy - yay!), thick meaty beef patty and oozing melted cheese:
Cross section of the moist beef patty, mid NOM...

Unfortunately, the interesting Watermelon and pork skewers (SGD 12++) that we ordered didn't taste as nice:
High class, non-Halal satay?...

Overall while it wasn't bad or anything like that, I found that the cubes of pork weren't flavorful or tender enough and didn't match very well with the watermelon.
(Was kinda disappointed)

When I took a bite of the Truffle fries (SGD 12++) though, all was forgiven:
Carb-y bliss!....

First of all, the texture was perfect - thick cuts of potato, crisp on the outside yet fluffy and moist on the inside without any hint of that horrid starchiness that you can get with yucky fries.....

... and all that deliciousness was amplified by the hint of earthy truffle scent and little bits of cheese coated on the french fries.
(OMG. Bliss)

Needless to say, I had a really nice time that day.
(Can't wait to go back there, if only for the awesome truffle fries *DROOL*)

Note:
Do not be insulted when they bring you the bill/ ask for payment the moment they serve up all your food - that's just their standard procedure.... :)
(It's NOT because you look dodgy/ suspicious)

So, it's: Simple, yummy food by a beautiful man made beach that will make you feel like you are no longer in the concrete jungles of Singapore BUT ok, so the food isn't exactly cheap/ affordable and the service can be slightly inattentive (yet friendly) if you are seated too far from the main bar area....
