Differentiating from its sister’s restaurant Swensen’s, it will be Earle Swensen’s salad bar buffet comprising of 25-30 selections healthy greens, freshly cut fruits, salads with homemade dressings. Every entrée comes with the eat all you can salad bar or available a la carte as well. The restaurant offers diners with premium seafood, charbroiled signatures and grilled main courses with both quality and value. Besides delectable mains and salads, the wide range of gelato flavours are also all time favourite of many.
From September 2018, diners can look forward to new additions to their menu namely;
Rack of Lamb from the Grill (S$36.50)
Cod Fillet with Mushroom Risotto (S$36.50)
Pan-Fried Seabass with Mediterranean Salsa (S$26.50)
Surfer’s Paradise (S$11.90)
Donut Castles (S$11.90)
Tapioca Patties (S$12.90)
Rack of Lamb from the Grill
Grilled perfectly yet meat was still soft and tender. The grilled Australian rack of lamb was seasoned well with a special blend of herbs and spices. Making the meal complete with crisp vegetables (carrot, maize and green long beans), baked potato with creamy ranch sauce with a refreshing mint taste. However we would prefer the baked potato was served with butter instead to make it more flavourful. Vegetables were quite bland as well. It would have been better if they were seasoned with the grill lamb.
Cod Fillet with Mushroom Risotto
This was an impressive dish. The cod was fresh – moist and tender to taste. Nicely pan-fried and it complemented the homemade capsicum sauce really well. Cod’s Skin was crisp as well. Underneath the cod were a bed of risotto with shimeji mushrooms. Every bite was a pleasure. The risotto was soft and it has a rich mushroom flavour. It was a delightful dish. Serving size was great for small to medium eaters, and of course definitely a choice for seafood lovers.
Desserts – Newly curated sweet treats
Consists of both hot and cold. Golden brown fried sweet tapioca patties accompanied by the pesto coloured pistachio gelato.
Cheese cookies and chocolate gelato sandwiched between mini donuts. Tthe donuts were dry and but it helps to complement the sweetness of the ice cream. Chocolate gelato was good. Rich and savoury.
Donut Castles are catered for diners with sweet-tooth. Wild Strawberry and Chocolate gelato in the middle of mini donuts, served with potato crisps and strawberry topping. The potato crisps did not complement the donut castles well enough though and the wild strawberry ice cream with strawberry topping was overly sweet. Nevertheless, it was a nice gesture that the topping was served separately so that diners could choose how they would have them.
Probably, it would be good if they could offer a range of gelato flavours for diners to choose from to make the dish a unique one and to the guest’s own preference. However, the gelato were still a great way to end off the meal. Something we can’t do without whenever we dine at Earle Swensen’s!
All in all, the newly curated dishes at Earle Swensen’s were a good addition to the existing menu and definitely worth a try! We love the cod fillet and the chocolate gelato. Buffet style salad bar offers a wide selection of appetizers, salads and fruits. You can have them before and after your meal as you wish!
