Morganfield’s @ The Star Vista: Must Try Spare Ribs!
Have you guys been to The Star Vista? It’s situated just next to Buona Vista MRT Station (and hence the name) so whoever’s working around the area will have another lunch place to go to now! Since its opening on 17 September, misterchewy and I had been there twice in a span of two weeks. We wanted to try Morganfield’s the first weekend we were there but were told that we had to wait for at least an hour because we didn’t make reservations.
I guess we got lucky the second time when we swung by after work. We wanted to have a simple and casual celebration for our 26th dating monthsary so Morganfield’s it was! Yup we still celebrate monthsaries other than ‘bigger’ occasions like our wedding anniversary. Something to look forward to every month! :) Anyway, here’s another shot of The Star Vista. It is Singapore’s first naturally cooled mall but we were kinda thankful that the shops are air-conditioned. LOL.
We didn’t manage to get an indoor seating :( The tables were small and chairs were quite high. Didn’t really feel comfortable. Remember to make reservations if you wanna try Morganfield’s! Anyway we weren’t quite happy with Morganfield’s service standards. Most of the wait staff are foreigners and although they could speak English, they had trouble understanding us and we too had trouble communicating with them.
We wanted to order the pork ribs, seafood platter, German sausages, chilli cheese fries, Tequila spiked chicken etc! Of course we would end up suffering from food coma but the ribs sealed the deal for us when we were told that we could enjoy half-slab for free if we order a full one, as part of their opening special :D
I chose the Smoked Peppercorn Spare Ribs because I have always been a fan of anything and everything black pepper! The ribs were slowly cooked till soft and fork tender. Served with red skin mashed potatoes and garden veggies, this is one very hearty dinner!
On the other hand, the Hickory Wood-Smoked Ribs ($36.90) had a more intense smoked flavor and was also slightly sweeter but we also got tired of it much sooner thtan the smoked peppercorn one!
They have some other promotions going on right now, so be sure to check Morganfield’s out soon! :)
