    The only reason I happen to know about this joint’s ‘cos my Industrial Attachment (IA) office was situated 2 streets away.

    That was about 4 years ago.

    At any rate, much as feizhu mentioned, you wouldn’t imagine such a fine-looking steakhouse in the midst of an industrial estate, with an alfresco option to boot.

    One thing I love about the joint’s that for an additional SGD 4.90 on top of a main course, you get to enjoy a free flow of Soup of the Day, Homemade Garlic Bread & Coffee/Tea.

    & boy is their Homemade Garlic Bread to die for; crispy on the outside, succulent on the inside, I could just drown in the stuff. The garlic spread is truly in a class of its own, with small chunks of garlic to give it that extra kick.

    Yes, I’m a big fan of garlic.

    The Soup of the Day’s pretty ok (Cream of Potato), but if you’re lucky, you just might get their Seafood Soup, which is heckuva lot better.

    They used to provide sachets of different teas as well, but that’s sadly no longer available, & one will thus be subjected to run-of-the-mill type brews.

    Escargot Bourguignonne ($8.90): Half doz succulentescargot (sic) fried with garlic – baked till perfection. Perfection it is not; other than the garlic, you don’t really taste anything else.

    Fish N Chips ($7.90): From the Children Menu. Seeing as to how the kiddies wolfed it down, it can’t be half bad.

    Grilled Chicken with Baked Scallop ($20.90): One of their Daily Value Meals. The chicken was rather spicy, which came as a surprise. All in all, it was pretty decent. Main complaint’s that the bacon bits that came with the baked potato tasted... weird.

    N.Y. Steak (300gm) ($31.90): From the Steak Lover’s Meal. It was commented that the steak tasted plenty good... ‘cept for the excess of fats & collagen. The Wild Mushroom sauce works a treat, though too much of it tends to be rather overwhelming.

    T-Bone Steak (500gm) ($35.90 $4.90 for set): Half a kilo of meaty madness... if only it didn’t suffer from the same excesses as the NY Steak. Had it Medium Rare, which was ok, though if you’re squeamish about the sight of red in your steak, you’ll probably be better off having it Medium Well; the meat near the bone will tend to come out pretty much uncooked at all. The tenderloin portion of the steak was almost non-existent.

    The staffs are pretty friendly, & what with the place operating pretty much throughout the day, you’re assured a quiet meal other than during lunchtime.

    Not a regular haunt, but I’d go back now & then just for their Homemade Garlic Bread.

    I remember frequently patronising the now defunct Dolphins Restaurant around the Macpherson area when I was still a secondary school student for its value for money set lunches and dinners. Fast forward a decade and the only hint of Dolphins existence is its flagship outlet along Genting Lane.

    Oddly located on the 7th floor of an aging industrial building, it is so obscure that you would have to actually know that such a place existed. The interior is homely and reminiscent of steak houses of yesteryear (think Jack's place in the early 90s), made complete with nice booth seats in one corner.

    Cream of Mushroom - The soup came with my set lunch and was rather starchy. Beats a watered down version I guess. And I'm pretty sure it came straight out of a can.

    Tenderloin with Slipper Lobster - Done up medium rare, the tenderloin was decent but not outstanding. The meat tasted a little flat and could have done with some seasoning. On the up side, the slipper lobster was relatively big and sweet. But as with all lobsters, meat is always limited.

    Pasta with Beef - Surprisingly, the pasta was al dente and the addition of capsicum gave this dish a very interesting twist - one that did not sit too well with me however. The beef cubes were plentiful though but lacking in taste and texture.

    I guess $47 for 2 for lunch isn't exactly cheap or value for money, but I would say its still decent and definitely a nice quiet place to have a meal. That, plus the nostalgic factor and decent service, is enough for a revisit.
