Restaurant Review: Secret Recipe

Restaurant Review: Secret Recipe

I wanted to write restaurant reviews for yeas now but it was not happening due to various reason.  Thanks to few friends with their persistent nagging I manage start product review and today long over due restaurant review.  We went to secret recipe to celebrate one of our friend’s birthday and I clicked the picture in the hope that I will write review! 

Secret recipe is famous for it’s cakes & ice cream and has branches all over Singapore, Malaysia, it’s not really a restaurant but cafe-bistro type place to sit and catch up with friends.  I personally felt their dinning menu is limited and very limited for vegetarian (okie, let’s be happy at least they have vegetarian items), they have also removed few items from menu since I lasted visited them.   But as I said the place is for cakes, ice cream, shakes which has good selection. 

We started with curried pumpkin soup (served with a bun), which was delicious, this was one of the best pick of day.  And inspired from this I make my own curried pumpkin soup

Also we order French fries, which was better than I expected, served with tartar sauce which was damn good.

I ordered Chicken Satay, which was a total let down.  Menu says it’s a must try, but I am saying just ignore this you are not going to miss anything great.  The satay was like deep fried chicken with no taste and another let down was peanut sauce! There was everything wrong about this dish.

Main course was simple, both my friends are vegetarian so they selected Oriental Style Soba served with chilli sauce (sauce was good though), one of them liked it and another one didn’t!  I tasted soba noodles and it was okie type.

I ordered fish and chip, fish was very oil, I couldn’t finish my portion. Below average for me.

For drinks, me and one of my friend choose Caffe Latte, which was okie.  By the time it arrived it was already luke warm!

Our another friend is big watermelon fan so as always she ordered watermelon juice.  I guess it was good.

And now comes the best part, Desserts.  I knew exactly what we going to order.  Secret Recipe’s most famous cake is their Chocolate Banana cake.  It just so good and they serve very generous portion.  You have to try this and you will love it too.

Their another best cake is White Chocolate Macadamia, I always order these 2 cakes.   White chocolate with crunchy macadamia is just so delicious.

Overall, if you visit secret recipe for their cakes, ice cream and drinks and you won’t be disappointed.   We went on a weekday for late lunch so the service was good as there were not many customer, if you visit during rush hours you can expect delay in service, we went to Plaza Singapura Outlet.

For 3 people we paid 80SGD.
