For me, Swensen’s is synonymous with ice cream, particularly a certain mega sundae named Earthquake. Now, Swensen’s has introduced something NEW for us to remember it by- a Swensens’s ‘Price is Right’ section featuring affordable $10.80++ mains and $5.90++ desserts! Also, read on to find out how to win $100,000 cash!
NEW Swensens’s ‘Price is Right’ Menu
The Swensens’s ‘Price is Right’ menu offers a choice of 7 mains (S$10.80++ each) and 3 desserts (S$5.90++) at affordable price.
First up, we tried the Taco Beef Rice. This is not rice in taco but a rice bowl consisting of minced beef in tomato sauce and vegetables served with a piece of tortilla chip. If otherwise, they would have named this Beef Rice Taco right? Overall, I like this dish.
Next, we had their Spaghetti Carbonara. This classic pasta has spaghetti served in an eggy and creamy sauce topped with turkey ham, shiitake mushroms, parmesan and bacon bits. The cream sauce is thick and rich but not overly so. But because I dislike cream based pasta in general, I still find it too jelat and will need to share it. Cream sauce lovers should like this though.
The Reely Good Fish Burger arrived looking really good, with a soft sesame bun that could barely contain the big and thick piece of breaded fish! I like that the buns were soft, the batter thin and fish fillet thick. Sadly, their choice of fish was not to my liking as it had a muddy taste.
Lastly, we went with the Go Green Lasagne. If you are wondering about the name Go Green, it’s so named because this is a meatless lasagne with spinach (green!) and mushrooms in tomato gravy. Of all the mains we had, this was the most disappointing as the pasta sheets in the lasagne were too thick and tasted of undercooked flour. This is such a pity since the homemade tomato sauce was pretty good.
Other Swensens’s ‘Price is Right’ mains include Chick It Out (Breaded fried chicken served with fries), Spaceship Pepperoni Pizza (Bite-sized pepperoni and cheese pizza served with fries) and Shitake Mushroom Salad (Roasted shitake mushroom and lettuce served in a fruity dressing).
When you order of any ‘Price is Right’ main, you can also opt to have a ‘Price is Right’ dessert for only S$4++ (UP S$5.90++). There are 3 desserts in the menu and we chose the Petite Milo Ice Cream Dirt Pot, which is basically the dessert version of the popular ‘Milo Dinosaur’ drink. The presentation is adorable, with Milo ice cream, Milo powder (the “dirt”), half a strawberry (the “flower”) and a toy shovel in a mini flower pot. Taste-wise, it was too Milo-rich for me. But ‘Milo Dinosaur’ fans should like this. I expect this to be popular with kids too.
Other Swensens’s ‘Price is Right’ desserts include Hot Fudge Sundae (Vanilla ice cream with hot fudge) and Strawberry Sundae (Vanilla ice cream with strawberry sauce).
We also tried some new desserts at Swensen’s- You’re the Apple of my Pie and Pop Goes the Caramel.
You’re the Apple of my Pie (S$13.80++) is an Apple Crumble Pudding served with vanilla ice cream and custard sauce. I like that Swensen’s uses green apples so the apple slices are not too sweet. However, the pudding was too doughy. I am unlikely to order again.
Pop Goes the Caramel (S$11.80++) is a pretty salted caramel parfait with salted caramel ice cream, sea salt popcorn and caramel sauce. As a salted caramel fan, I was looking forward to this. Unfortunately, it fell short of my expectations. Basically, the only thing I liked was the crunchy sea salt popcorn. Overall, the parfait was too sweet for me and I experienced caramel overdose. Perhaps, this dessert may do better with vanilla ice cream. Some of my fellow diners also felt that this was too salty (maybe because of the popcorn).
