The past 2 weeks have been pure madness due to planning for Orientation which will take place next week! Hopefully the kids will enjoy themselves and that they'll start the school year on a high and positive note (:
The weather's been fabulous the past week (well we were having dry runs so I was glad that there were no showers and/ or thunderstorms!) and it's perfect to be out and about exploring restaurants that are situated in non-sheltered areas such as the Botanic Gardens!
Chilled Halia Infusion ($10), which was a kind of ginger tea mixed with other things which I don't remember. The ginger taste wasn't very strong but it was detectable and the drink on the whole was pretty welcoming.
sprite ($6) - to share. This is always good because I've a back-up drink if the experimental drink that I order turns out to be bad!
fish & chips ($36), which we felt was slightly disappointing because the fish wasn't very juicy or tender. Also, the portion of the fish fillets were pretty small but I guess the fries sort of made up for the fish. I don't think the price of the dish reflects the quality of the food but it's okay.
Scrambled Eggs Set ($20) and the kind waitress allowed me to swap a sausage for portobello mushrooms! Felt that mine was definitely nicer than Jeffrey's and I happily ate my fill! Love having breakfast dishes!
Sticky Chocolate dessert ($12), which was a slice of dense brownie with a scoop of vanilla icecream - yumyum!
On the whole, though we liked the dining experience at Halia, I don't think it is a place which we're likely to revisit soon or often because we feel that it's too pricey! Well at least we tried something new & different at my favourite place in Singapore (:
Alright will try to get as much rest as possible before madness begins next week! (: Happy weekend!
