L’olivier, Telok Ayer St

Hell-ow everybady, Ms Atas is back from her Europe tour! Check out my facebook constant updates from Effiel Tower, Leaning tower, etc. My Australian Boyfriend came for a visit and I wanted to bling him to a high crass place but I wanna be considerate too, and go for lunch, cheaper. I’m considerate, not cheap oooook? I iz Ms Atas, got $$. So did some prelim research on HGW and found this restaurant with high approval rate, not 100% approval but good enough, not everyone can have 100% approval rating like me.

When I was there, I was shocked. Gasp! I put my limp-wristed hand on my real boobs to clam myself down. The restaurant is situated at Singapore Hokkien Association and I thought all dialect associations are in dingy shophouses. This one so modern and so bright! Brighter than the moon moon moon. Hokkiens are as atas as Ms Atas? I don’t dink so!

The second shock I had was the decor of the restaurant. Expensive restaurants are suppose to be dark and sexy and the outside people cannot look in but this one is open concept with full-pane glass panels. OMG, I need more makeup!

The 3-course set lunch ($25++) is awwwfully limited. Appetizer: choice of soup or salad; Main: choice of fish or beef; and fixed dessert. Naturally, my Australian Boyfriend and I picked the same things because our two hearts are one.

Aiyo, cannot, this simply cannot do. The mushroom soup had a thick film of oil floating on it – and its color was green. The 150days grainfed angus beef fillet was wayyyy overcooked–i requested for medium-rare–and tasted more pan-fried than grilled. The profiteroles were forgettable.

The service wasn’t top-notched. We hadn’t even finished our soup yet and the beef came. You know lah, I iz Ms Atas, got tiny mouth.

We spent $60 but there are other places which could serve better food at the same price.

  1. Is this about the restaurant or about the author? Who’s this self oriented, Narcisse-like character self-promoted herself to a food critic?

    Please revise your English as well, it makes a hard read for an already poor review…

    Won’t read any more pages of this blog!
