Located at the Ibis Bencoolen Hotel, we hop by for lunch as we were attracted by the “1 for 1 Set” banners outside the restaurant.
As it was a public holiday, we were unsure if the promotion applies hence we asked the staff whether the promotion is on for day. We were told it was on until our orders were made. It was an unpleasant shock. we cancelled a few orders and proceed with the meal. On a positive note, the manager and waiter were apologetic for the oversight.
The star of the meal has got to be the Black Pepper Crab which was served with a petite mantou for you to dip the tasty, addictive black pepper sauce. There was substantial amount of meat though it was slightly dry. The best part of this dish remains to be the sauce which was not too spicy, quite sweet and addictive. I wiped up the sauce clean with the mantou and cucumber slices from the chicken rice.
No complaints for the food. 15++ SGD bucks for 3x chili or black pepper crab (or a combination of other dishes) seemed like a good deal but one might still find it slightly expensive for hawker fare which makes the 1-for-1 a really good deal if it was valid.
15++ for 3 dishes, 18++ for 4 dishes and 22++ for 5 dishes.
