While everyone seems to be going to the newest places to eat, I seem to be visiting a few places that are ‘ancient’ in Singapore standards. These places have been around so long, they have outlived most restaurants in Singapore.
Uncle and Aunt called us out for dinner. Aunt did not feel like cooking and wanted something different. Something old and very traditional. We came to Sloane Court Hotel’s English Restaurant and Bar.
You see modern condominiums surrounding this place. Looking at it, it reminds us of Fraser’s Hill in Malaysia. Or motels in Australia to me. LOL
When you go in, you’ll see the walls with old English deco. It has stuff that you know what Mel Gibson wears on Braveheart. You should visit to see how it looks. Maybe for tea?
After looking at the menu and can’t really decide what to eat, we had 3 set meals and 2 ala-carte items. The set meals had coleslaw. It looks simple, taste simple, but it is nice. Very different from KFC’s version.
Plain warm buns. Old style buns, not the Breadtalk generation kind of buns.
Also part of the set, mushroom soup.
For me, I think I like modern style mushroom soup. ;-p
Uncle’s favourite. He like the traditional Ox-tail stew here.
Aunt had the Encik Kabin.
You realise the food here is ‘boringly’ traditional British? haha.. Served with boiled carrots and peas. The potatoes are whole potatoes, cut into pieces and deep fried.
Sis and I both ordered the sirloin steak.
Yes, they prepared the ‘done’-ness as specified. It was quite good.
Cousin had the ala-carte version which is not the set, it was Garlic Steak.
Ala-carte version comes on the sizzling hot place. Sets are served on the usual whites. 😉
Dessert was ice cream with tea or coffee.
It was a nice dinner. Having food like this, we started to talk about our aunts, uncles, cousins, our sis and bro in UK. Suddenly miss our bro. Does he miss us? LOL…
We were wondering how the budget flight to UK on AirAsia X from KL will be like. Anyone tried it? We have never travel long distance on budget airlines.
